Export Unitechnik (79) contains the following improvements:

  • 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.

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

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

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

  • 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 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 1st shell).

  • 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.

    plotting option now works correctly for embeds that have more than two hierarchy levels.

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

  • 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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • SLABDATE block data specification tab:

    • Now you can export the weight in SLABDATE block as cast unit weight or as a template.

    • 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.


    • 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

  • 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/item user-defined properties dialog box.

  • 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.

  • TS configuration tab:

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

    • 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 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 allows setting the first bending angle of free-flection rodstock negative as required by certain interfaces.
    • 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 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 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.
