Cambering plans

In Tekla Structures you can show cambering plans for cambered profiles in drawings:


Cambering plans in drawings

In Tekla Structures model template cambering plans is available:

(This model template is located in the folder ...\TeklaStructures\<version>\Environments\ConstrusoftEuropean\Steel\ModelTemplates).
To show a cambering plan in a drawing:
1. Create a new model, based on model template cambering plans.
2. Generate an assembly drawing in which you want to show the cambering plan, use setting beam-cambered. The setting beam-cambered uses layout assembly so that the cambering plan is shown in the assembly drawing:

3. Open the drawing properties dialog box in the drawing and click the button User-defined attributes...
4. Go to the tab Cambering parameters. Select a Camber schedule (1) and enter the intended cambering sizes (2):

In this example, for the fields Cambersize1 and Cambersize2 no values have been entered, because of this in the drawing the sign "=" is entered.
The following formula is defined for the value fields in the Template Editor:

The number corresponds to the following cambering plan types:

Nr. Cambering plan type Nr. Cambering plan type
1 5
2 6
3 7
4 8

5. Click Modify.

6. Reopen the drawing, the entered values are now visible in the cambering plan:


Using cambering plans in all models

To use cambering plans in all models, copy the following files from the model template camber schedule to the folder ts:
Model folder File objects.inp
  File cambering_plans.tpl
Folder attributes File assembly.lay

Restart Tekla Structures to use the copied files.
If needed, you can add your own cambering plans of modify the existing plans.
