Requirements for connecting to Tekla Online services

Tekla Online services complement the Tekla software products by offering learning material, comprehensive knowledge base services, discussion forums, training courses and services for downloading installation packages, software updates and add-on tools.

You need to create a personal Trimble Identity to get the most out of our services. In order to access the content which requires maintenance your Trimble Identity needs to belong to an organization with active maintenance. You can contact you organization admin for an invitation. More information on managing Trimble Identities here.

Trimble Identity

Tekla Structures, Tekla Model Sharing, Tekla Field3D, and all Tekla Online services use Trimble Identity for identification. In addition to Tekla services, you can use your Trimble Identity with several other Trimble services, such as Trimble Connect and SketchUp 3D Warehouse.

Download Tekla Structures add-on tools and content

Tekla Warehouse (https://warehouse.tekla.com) is a service where you can download applications, custom components, parts, profiles, materials, bolts, rebars, shapes, and templates for Tekla Structures. You can use the content in online collections, share content with your colleagues using network collections, and have local collections for private use. To use online and local collections directly within your Tekla Structures model, you need the Tekla Warehouse Service. It is installed with Tekla Structures 20.1 Service Release 1 and newer Tekla Structures versions.

Log in to Tekla Warehouse with your Trimble Identity to download content. You need to have a valid customer maintenance agreement to access all of the content.

Collaborate with others within a Tekla Structures model

Tekla Model Sharing enables global collaborative modeling within one Tekla Structures model. Tekla Model Sharing gives users the freedom to work with the same model at the same time in different locations and time zones. In Tekla Model Sharing, the models and their changes are shared over the Internet using a Microsoft Azure cloud service.

If your Internet connection is restricted, ensure that your firewall TCP port 443 (the default HTTPS) outbound is open. If an HTTP proxy is used, it must support HTTP 1.1.

HTTP proxy with authentication is used for all HTTP traffic.
If all the HTTP(S) communication is routed through an HTTP proxy that requires authentication, the appropriate HTTP proxy related settings must be added to the settings in the TeklaStructures.exe.config file located in the TeklaStructures\<Version>/nt/bin folder.

Log in Tekla Structures with your Trimble Identity. All sharing actions require a valid Tekla Model Sharing license.
