Question: I have difficulties to log in to the Model Sharing service and see this message in the modelsharing log file: TeklaMessagingException: Security check failed. https://prod.teklamodelsharing.com is not a trusted destination address Answer:  It might help to reboot Windows. That this might be because of Windows is updating it's component but not doing reboot as it should. We have noticed several of various weird problems that rebooting has solved. Another issue is if you have SSL inspection (or deep scan) in use with your company firewall. If it is you should bypass the inspection

Why don't part marks in a GA drawing follow part start and end points?

Question In our company we always ask our designers to pay attention to start and end point when creating a concrete panel since that defines the front face of the panel. In our CU drawings that front face is also the plaster surface by default. We only mark this plaster surface to drawings by text so there might be elements that are symmetrical in TS model side and the only way to tell how to erect them on site is to trust that the part marks in GA drawings indicate the orientation of parts correctly. We just don't seem to get the part marks the way we need them to be even though we have

Parametric profiles incorrect when modified in property pane

We have found a critical defect in Tekla Structures 2018 SP2. This concerns imperial units and metric decimal units and can happen in any environment using them.  When modifying a parametric profilepredefined profile whose cross section dimensions the user can change by using parametric variables in the property panecontrol element in Tekla Structures user interface in the form of a side pane windowThe property pane can be used to show and modify the properties of model objects., the property pane changes the profile dimensions to some unknown numeric values.

How to restore "Publish as Web Page" functionality

Question: When I try to Publish as Web Page, the dialog Yes, Publish to Tekla BIMsight / Publish as Web Page won't appear at all. Instead another dialog Publish to Tekla BIMsight opens by default. How can I restore the Publish as Web Page functionality? Solution: It is a known issue that after selecting Yes, Publish to Tekla BIMsight and Do not show this message again, the Web Viewer XML export cannot be done anymore. To publish a model again as web page, you need to modify the selection, which is saved in the Windows registry. To do this, you can simply shift + click the Publish as Web Page

Cannot find an installed version of Tekla Structures when inserting content from Tekla Warehouse

You may get a notification message saying “There are no installed Tekla Structures versions that are compatible with this extension version” when trying to use the Insert into model option available for the content in Tekla Warehouse. This can happen even if you have installed a version of Tekla Structures that is supported by the extension. This most likely means that the file you are trying to insert is a .tsep file that has been incorrectly categorized as model content when it was uploaded to Tekla Warehouse. The Insert into model option is used for model content files, and it’s available

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,

SPD Seam Information in Tube NC -files

Question: Why the seam information is missing when I export my custom SPD profile to a tube NC file? Answer: SPD profile name has to start with letters SPD for Tekla Structures to be able to export the seam information when creating a tube NC file.   See also Create tube NC files

Priority when multiple file locations are set in advanced option

Question: When an advanced option has multiple file locations set which file will Tekla Structures use? Answer:  Some advanced options for file locations can contain multiple file paths. To add additional file locations just separate the file paths with a semicolon. When different files with the identical names and extension are located in different file locations, Tekla Structures will search the folders from right to left and uses the last file that will be read. This will make the paths that come earlier in the string having priority. Example:XS_UEL_IMPORT_FOLDER=%XSDATADIR%\

Visibility of direct modification dimensions in model ( Total & X, Y, Z dimensions)

When Direct modification switch is on, the visibility of the distances between handles can be turned on & off between objects types (e.g. parts, rebar groups). These settings are user specific. The 2 dimension types available are X, Y, Z dimensions and Total dimension.  To turn them on & off select one of the handles of the object and click on the contextual toolbar icon . Expand the contextual toolbar and open the dimensions tab.     Select what dimensions should be visible in the model.

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

Remove mesh width and length from template

Question: How can I have a template to not show mesh width and length, so that only diameters and spacings are visible? Answer: There are at least two options to achieve the desired result: You can edit the contents of the Size attribute for meshes in the rebar_config.inp file found in your environment folder. This defines the values that are displayed when Size is used in part marks, templates, associative notes etc. So if you want to hide the total width and length of meshes in all annotations, you can do it here. The line to edit looks like this:       RebarMeshSize="%CC_DIAMETER_LONG

Fit to paper does not fit to the entire paper size

Question: I try to plot a drawing and selected Fit to paper but the drawing doesn't autoscale to the entire paper size. What should I do? Answer: This issue can happen when for example, you are plotting an A4 to an ArchA paper size and is caused by a setting in the DrawingSizes.dat. Go to: TeklaStructures\<version>\Environments\<environment>\system\DrawingSizes.dat Or search for DrawingSizes.dat in your environment folder. Note: if the file is not in your environment then use the Common environment.   If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the file you see the

Optimizing performance when working with pours

This support article describes best practices that will help you troubleshoot performance issues that you might face when modeling pour objects and pour breaks. There are several operations in Tekla Structures that require geometrical calculations of pour objects, for example, opening a model or view, creating a general arrangement 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
