Modelling rebar in elliptical member

Question: How do I model rebar into an elliptical member? Answer: The following example will take you through the process of modelling the rebar in an elliptical/curved member step-by-step. We will start by placing and moving the longitudinal rebar before progressing onto modelling the side bars. We will also take a look at creating crossing rebars and modifying the end details. Example Model longitudinal rebar Let's add the longitudinal rebar. From Concrete tab, select Rebar > Bar group​   The Rebar groupgroup of reinforcing bars that are side by side and have identical properties,

User-defined attribute default value handling changed in 2018

Previously Tekla Structures used zero as a default value for user-defined attributes that had not been defined in templates and reports. Since 2018 Tekla Structrues does not set the default value and uses an undefined value. This affects: default values of all user-defined attribute types: text, numeric and option lists both reports and templates in drawings There can be some changed behaviour of templates that show UDA default values or use them in conditions. Previously you could for example use condition if GetValue("USERDEFINED.MY_UDA")==0 or GetValue("USERDEFINED.MY_UDA")=="" but now

Create countersunk set screws without nuts or washers

Question: Is it possible to have a countersunk set screw in my model? I need my bolt without nuts or washers. Answer: Yes, there's a way to create countersunk set screws without nuts or washers. Bolts in Tekla Structures are created with a nut as part of the default process and the difficulty is that if the nut is deselected when creating the bolt, the bolt head will also be compromised and will not display. What we need to do is to effectively create both a dummy nut and a dummy washer to mislead Tekla Structures into thinking that both a nut and washer are actually part of the bolt

Custom tab definition is not read from firm folder

Question:  I defined company custom tab in ribbon, but it seems not to be read from firm folder. I defined the XS_FIRM folder in the Advanced options in my model. Answer: The XS_FIRM definition in advanced options is made on model level and is too late for custom tab to be initialized, even if for many other functionalities that is totally OK. You need to define the XS_FIRM in ini file which is read before model opening. For example in user.ini, teklastructures.ini, project.ini or in company.ini.   See alsoSave and share custom ribbon tabDistribute custom tabs using a firm or environment

Remove unwanted text frames from DWG exports

The new DWG export tool sometimes adds extra frames around text. The reason is a non-zero value for wipeoutframe setting in the template DWG that was used for defining the layer rules. Change the value to zero to remove the frames in the exported drawing. To prevent the frames from appearing in future exports, change the value already in the template drawing. To change the value in AutoCAD, type command WIPEOUTFRAME and assign 0 as the value for the variable.

Use old properties dialog boxes to modify the properties of parts

In Tekla Structures 2018 part properties can be managed with the property pane. If you still want to use the old property dialog boxes to edit your beams, columns, slabs, etc. you can open the dialog boxes with two different commands: CTRL + double-click on the part. Select the part in the model, then use the command CTRL + double-click to open the old property dialog box.  Using Quick Launch command. By typing e.g. properties,  Concrete column properties, slab properties, steel beam properties, etc. you can quick launch the old property dialog boxes.

How to open side pane windows without stacking them

When opening a new window in the side pane, the windows stack on top of each other by default. To open a single window in the side pane, hold down the ctrl key while clicking the button. The selected window fills the side pane, closing other open side pane windows. Note that the side pane remains unchanged if the opened window is either floating or docked at the bottom docking area. If there are multiple windows docked at the bottom, the ctrl + click command works similarly for the bottom area windows.
