Dimension associativitydrawing property that represents the linking of drawing objects to model objects so that the former are updated according to changes made to the latter in the modeling mode
In Tekla Structures, associativity only relates to one type of drawing objects, namely associative objects. These can be building objects and associative annotation objects.
In Tekla Structures, the term associativity has traditionally been used when referring to the linking of drawing objects to model objects. In other modeling contexts, however, the term associativity may refer to any kind of linking between model objects or parts of a model by using dependencies.
rules are now sorted and show more clearly if the rule is associated to a reference pointpoint that Tekla Structures creates when the user creates a model object, the point being visualized as a handle
The reference points follow the model object if it is moved. They are only deleted if the related model object is deleted.
Reference points can be selected as snap points in a snap switch.
