Unitechnik Export (79) contains the following improvements:

  • 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 to 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:

Merged as one cutout:

Unmerged, overlapping cutouts:
Unmerged cutouts with no overlapping:
  • 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 file message.
  • SLABDATE block data specification tab: 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(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.

    - Template

  • 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.

  • ​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.

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

  • 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'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 bolted together on site. In Tekla Structures, embeds are modeled as steel sub-assemblies that are inside a concrete nested assembly.

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • ​The user-defined attributes dialog box for steel parts and items also contains a new option Exclude from export for excluding mounting parts from the export.

  • 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.

  • 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.
