Makes placing retaining walls much easier and with one command. Users have always been able to model in retaining walls but had to go through multiple commands. Now the process has been simplified and is completed with one command. This tool is included with the Concrete Tools extension.
Environments: US Imperial, US Metric
To install the application:
- Close Tekla Structures (if running)
- Download MSI Installer from Tekla Warehouse
- Install and run MSI Installer
- Start Tekla Structures
- Open Model
- Before version 2016: A new toolbar icon which will launch the tool should now be visible. For 2016 version and newer: a new thumbnail under Ungrouped items in the Applications and components side pane will appear.
To use this tool, the user needs to activate the tool from the icon/thumbnail. Select two points to set up the length of 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.
This tab allows the user define the shape of the retaining wall with footing in one command. There are two different types of walls; one is a single monolithic pour and the other option is to have the footing and wall as two different pours.
This option also allows you to add a component for a water stop, etc. Just changed the Create option to yes.
If “Create” is set to yes, then this tab isn’t greyed out.
