Conflict management in Tekla Warehouse

When you insert (or download and import) content 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.

into a Tekla Structures model, there may be conflicts between the content to be inserted and the content already existing in the model.

This is how the conflicts are handled:

  • In Tekla Structures catalogs for profiles, materials, bolts, bolt assemblies, components, shapes, reinforcing bars, and reinforcement meshes, the conflict detection is based on object names within the cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

    For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.


    For example, two profiles with the same name cannot exist in the same profile catalogcatalog that displays profiles and information on the profiles

    In addition to the available profiles in the respective Tekla Structures environment, the user can add fixed or parametric user-defined profiles to the profile catalog. It is also possible to import profiles to the profile catalog.

    , even if the properties of the profiles are different.

  • For the content downloaded to the model folderfolder that is used for storing files associated with a model

    Tekla Structures stores all files associated with a model in a folder it creates with the same name as the model database (.db1).

    In multi-user mode all users access the same model folder.

    (for example, report templates, drawing setup files, .pdf files), the conflict check notifies you if the model folder contains conflicting files.
  • For model templates or cloning templates with the same name as an existing template, the installation fails, and you have to manually download the template and rename it.

    For the model to work, each model or cloning templatemaster drawing where an existing drawing is used to copy the drawing settings for a new drawing

    The new drawing has the same drawing settings as the original drawing.

    The user creates a cloning template of a drawing typically after extensive manual modifications have been made in the drawing, in order to achieve the same appearance and contents in new drawings.

    In the master drawing catalog, it is possible to create single-part, assembly, and cast unit drawings using cloning templates. It is also possible to add new cloning templates to the master drawing catalog from the document manager.

    folder must have the same name as the model databasedatabase file that contains a model

    Model database file has the extension .db1. In addition, other files, such as the corresponding numbering database .db2, are needed in order to obtain the functionality of the model database.
