Export Unitechnik (79) contains the following improvements:

  • The maximum number of exported elements or layers in the SLABDATE block is now limited to 99 according to the Unitechnik specification. If the limitation is exceeded, you will be notified by a console and log filefile that contains information related to changes, actions, and errors in the model or drawing

    Tekla Structures writes information in log files when the model is saved, numbered or checked for clashes, for example.


  • When using template variables, the export now automatically​ checks the topmost content attribute files to get the unit of the template variable and converts it to the unit used in Unitechnik export.

  • Bent meshes with limited rebar angles are now exported with correct origin points.

  • Option to rotate pallet 90° if pallet width exceeded is now working correctly.

  • Steel parts and items now have in the user-defined attributes dialog box a new tab Unitechnik Mountpart, where you can specify data which then overwrites the data entered in the Export Unitechnik (79) dialog box.

  • You can now exclude mounting parts from the export using the new option Exclude from export on the Unitechnik Mountpart tab in the steel part and item user-defined properties dialog box.

  • You can now use the value Text[Template]#Counter for the following options:
    - Name of order
    - Name of component
    - Drawing number
    - Project line 1-4 text
    - Slabplate that represents a concrete structure

    In Tekla Structures, a slab is created by picking three or more points.

    Slab may be part of a floor, for example.


    - Info text 1 - 4 of slabdate
    - Info text 1 - 2 of mounting part

  • TS configuration tab: 

    • You can now export CONTOUR  as bounding boxrectangular border with the smallest measure within which all the selected points that position the model objects lie

      In Tekla Structures two-dimensional bounding boxes are used in drawings and three-dimensional bounding boxes in models.

      . It is recommended to use this option with file structure set as: Single layer, 1 slabdate, n parts on the Main tab.

    • You can now prevent exporting cutouts with the new option Export CUTOUTs.

    • You can now merge cutouts using the new option Merge CUTOUTS. You can select to export a big cutout which is created by smaller cuts as separate cutouts. The options are:

1. Merged as one cutout

2. Unmerged, overlapping cutouts

3. Unmerged cutouts with no overlapping

  • Reinforcement tab: The new option First bending angle allow setting the first bending angle of free-flection rodstock negative, as required by certain interfaces.
