Clash checking with and without reference objects

Question:I would like to speed up the clash checking by checking only the Tekla Structures native objects without the reference modelmodel which the designer can use as an aid when building another modelA reference model is created in Tekla Structures or in other software and can be inserted to Tekla Structures. The reference model appears together with the model but it is not modified by Tekla Structures. The user can snap to reference model points.For example, an architectural model, a plant design model, or a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) model can be a reference model

Exporting and importing sketched profiles

Question:I created a sketched profileparametric user-defined profile created in the sketch editor which appears in the profile catalogcatalog that displays profiles and information on the profilesIn 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.. Then I exported the profile cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized listsFor example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs

Reusing old GA drawing numbers

Question:I have made some GA drawings from 1 to 10 and then deleted drawings G.4 and G.6.  If I make a new GA drawingdrawing that is created from one or more model views and that shows information needed to understand the general arrangement of structural elements on a projectGeneral arrangement drawings show how parts, assemblies, cast units, or pour objects are located in a building., Tekla Structures uses the number G.11. How I can use the old numbers G.6 and G.4? Answer:If you are working in single-user modemode in which only one user can work on a model you can use this workaround:

Problem with the computer memory

Question:What should I check when I think there is problem with the computer memory? Answer:Here is a check list of memory problems: RAMPlease check if you already have all the RAM available in use (4 GB in 32-bit system and 8 – 128 GB in 64-bit system). If not, you may want to consider buying more. 3 GB switchIn 32-bit OS it is possible to turn on so called 3 GB switch, which allows the application to use more memory. As a prerequisite, you need to have 4 GB RAM. Information for XP: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/system/platform/server/PAE/PAEmem.mspx (check for the /3GB switch) ... adjust
