Goal and description

This application allows you to generate reservation for the Wallplate that represents a structure such as a wall or roof panel

In Tekla Structures, a panel is created by picking two or more points.

In cast-in-place concrete the term wall refers to a concept similar to panel.

Layout Plugincomponent that is developed using Tekla Open API

Plugin is a .dll file and loaded inside Tekla Structures process.

Plugins can be started from the applications and components catalog.



Tekla Structures Version: 2018 and above
.NET Framework version: 4.5.1
Environments: Global

Installation Reservation MCI

To install the applicationpart of Tekla Structures functionality that is developed in order to extend the capability of Tekla Structures but that is not included in the Tekla Structures installation


If Tekla Structures is not started:
    Download the appropriate TSEP (Tekla Structures Extension Package) file from Tekla Warehouse.
    Double-click on the .tsep file.
    In Tekla Structures Extension Manager, select the versions of Tekla Structures for which you want to install the application.
    Click on "Import".
    Copy the .tsep file under .\TeklaStructures\[version]\Extensions\To be installed
    Start Tekla Structures.

If Tekla Structures is started:
    Download the appropriate TSEP (Tekla Structures Extension Package) file from Tekla Warehouseservice for collaboration and for storing and sharing Tekla Structures content

In Tekla Warehouse the content items are stored in collections. Tekla Warehouse includes the Tekla Warehouse Service and the Tekla Warehouse web site.

Tekla Warehouse is one of the Tekla Online services.

    Click on the button menu in the Application & Components side panel and select Extension Manager.
    Click on Import.
    Select the .tsep file and click Open.
    Restart Tekla Structures to complete the installation.

Using Reservation MCI

You will find the extension in the form of one macro in Applications & components

To create a reservation in a Wall Layout, simply select a wall belonging to that Wall Layout. The plugin will find the "Wall Layout" component, bind itself to it and load the component's values. By default a reservation 800 * 800.

Reservations are linked to the "Wall Layout" component. If the Wall Layout is changed in its settings, number of layers, layer sizes, enlarged, reservations will be recalculated based on these new data. If one of the sub-components of the Wall Layout is removed, for example one of the concrete panels that composes it, the reservations will not disappear: the plugin is not linked to sub-components.

If the Wall Layout is deleted the reservations disappear.

The formwork pieces are independent for each panel. If an edge joint separates the initial layers, the creation of the formwork parts will be done according to each wall, taking into account the shifts in the edge joints. The parts thus created belong to the subassembly of the wall for the Unitechnik export, from the moment when the material chosen for the generation of the part is not concrete.


1. Profile of the reservation
2. Layer filter, with an expression separated by spaces, and with range value accepted. Example : 1-3 4 5-* means 1 to 3, the layer 4, then 5 to the end
3. Attributes of formwork parts.
The user can choose to create a custom componentcomponent that the user creates and uses for creating model objects whose composition the user can modify as a group

in place of the opening

4. Attributes of cuts.

1. Center of profile
2. Shift in elevation, relative to the anchor point
3. Shift in direction, relative to the anchor point
4. Rotation of the profile, relative to his center
5. Command to redefine the anchor point
6. Command to copy the current selected reservation to another anchor point
7. Option for positioning the reservation in relation to the origin of the panel or in relation to the anchor point
