Unitechnik Export (79) has been improved in the following way:

  • Embeds tab: Cuts that have been specified with a 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.

    can now be exported in the MOUNPART block with the option Cutpart former.

  • When exporting rebar as mount part with option Cut outer assemblies, now the correct geometry of rebar is exported.

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

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

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

  • 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.


  • Cage reinforcement main dimensions are now exported in cage's coordinate system instead of the pallet's coordinate system, according to the Unitechnik 6.1.0 specifications.

  • 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.

  • On the on the Unitechnik Mountpart tab, you can also exclude mounting parts from the export using the new option Exclude from export.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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. 

  • HEADER block data specification tab: You can now specify the number of decimals after the decimal separator.

  • TS configuration tab: You can now prevent exporting cutouts with the new option Export CUTOUTs.

  • TS configuration tab: 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


Development area: 
Import, export, interoperability
