Improvements in Unitechnik Export (79):

  • Cut part formers are now exported with thickness and installation height of the host part cutcut that is defined by a cutting part

    section, instead of the thickness and position of the cut itself.

  • Embeds that are outside the double wallplate that represents a structure such as a wall or roof panel

    In Tekla Structures, a panel is created by picking two or more points.

    In cast-in-place concrete the term wall refers to a concept similar to panel.

    shells are now are now exported to the intended shell if added as sub-assemblyassembly in a nested assembly that is subordinate to a parent assembly

    . If  added to cast unit, will be exported in main part(1) part that exists in a building object and that determines the position number for the assembly or cast unit and the direction of assembly or cast unit drawings

    (1) Main part can be an assembly main part or a cast unit main part.

    (2) input part that the user selects first when creating a component

    (2) Connections and details always have a component main part.

    's shell (usually the 1st shell).

  • The following new special assembly export codes (installation types) can now be used: 0, 41, 42, 43.

    • 41 - 43 can be used for orienting the embedbuilding object that represents an object that is to be cast into a concrete structure and that is used to connect structures or as an aid when constructing a structure

      For example, a cast-in socket is an embed that is placed in concrete structures to allow parts to be fastened together on site. In Tekla Structures, embeds are typically steel parts and they are added to cast units as sub-assemblies.

      symbols according to model orientation:

      • 41: Insertion point embed assembly COG and orients towards the start to end point axis.

      • 42: Insertion point embed part start point and orients towards the end point.

      • 43: Insertion point embed assembly COG and orinets towards the axis of the longest edge.

    • 0 ignores the symbol and will use the sub-assembly 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.

      setting according to the insertion COG setting (1 - 5), for example, PLATE(1) part that represents a flat structure

      (1) In some contexts, for example in analysis, the term plate object may be used to refer to plates.

      (2) plate that represents a steel structure

      (2) Plate is mainly used as a connection piece or as a floor plate.

      0 0 4.

  • When a rebar fails the validation for diameter of length limitation, you are now notified by a log message.

  • Reinforcement types 1, 2, 5 and 6 are now correctly exported in double wall shells 1 and 2 regardless of turning.

  • Freely selectable bending forms with 6 bending rows are now exported without an extra row, which caused errors in some user interfaces.

  • The embed plotting option now works consistently for embeds that have more than two hierarchy levels.

  • The Text[Template]#Counter option was improved, and now more than one template can be used, and text delimiters are also supported. The Text[Template]#Counter option was also added for the settings Article number - rebar and Article number - meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

    In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

    on the Reinf. data specification tab.

  • The user-defined attributes dialog box for surface objects now contains a new tab Unitechnik, where you can define line attributes that override scanned line attributes.

  • Embeds tab:

    • There is a new option Yes, no rotation on pallet available for the setting Special assembly export. With this option, the embed symbols are placed according to the panel rotation, but the symbols themselves are not rotated.

    • Embeds, insulation, electric tubes, opening embed, opening cutout, cutpart former, opening with corner symbols, braced girder and ignored parts from export can now be designated by classpart property that groups parts according to identifiers given by the user

      The identifiers of classes are usually numbers. Classes can be used for defining the color of parts in the model, for example. Class does not influence the numbering of model objects.

      or by name in the dialog box. Previously, only class could be used.

    • Embeds in special assembly symbol definition file can now also be designated by template property and its value in format [TEMPLATE:VALUE] instead of the embed name.

  • SLABDATE block data specification tab:

    • You can now export weight in the SLABDATE block as cast unit weight or as template property using the new Production weight options Cast unit weight and Template.

    • You can now select which value is exported as total thickness by using the new setting Total thickness. The options are:

- Cast unit thickness
- Concrete part thickness
- Main part thickness
- Template

  • TS configuration tab:

    • There are two new options for the setting Export CUTOUTs: Exclude selected excludes from the export the modeled cut parts that you define by class or name, and Selected only includes in the export the cut parts that you define by class or name.

  • Reinforcement tab:

    • There is a new option Bent meshes with end hooks available for the setting Bent reinf. as unfolded. This option exports end hook shapes L, S and U (flection form 1, 4 and 5) as terminal hooks according to the Unitechnik specification. Other shapes are exported as free flection forms like before.

  • Mounting part data specification tab:

    • It is now possible to define the type of the mounting part by class or by name in Type of mounting part. Define the exceptional classes/names in the first dialog field separated by blank space and the paired mounting part types in same sequence separated by blank space.

  • Pallet tab:

    • Now when you have selected Combined, n slabdate, 1 part as the output file structure, you can select the logic of sequencing panels on pallet using main part or cast unit ACNuser-defined attribute of an assembly or a cast unit that identifies the assembly or cast unit main part

      A control number does not affect numbering.

      Control numbers are running numbers.

      or number, main part UDAobject property created by the user in order to widen the range of predefined object properties

      User-defined attributes are used when the predefined object properties are not sufficient but more properties are needed. For example, comment, locked, and erection status are user-defined attributes.

      or main part template, or  Unitechnik transport UDAs.You can set the sequence as Ascending or Descending.

    • With the new setting Y offset you can specify the Y offset of elements on the pallet.

  • Log files tab:

    • With the new setting Write file name to UDA, you can select to write the full export file name (File name with extension) or the export file name without the file name extension (File name without extension) to hidden mainpart UDA UT_FILE_NAME.
