Learn how to import a Tekla Structural Designer model for rebar into Tekla Structures.
You will learn to compare imported rebar to design intent, and investigate additional import options.
You will learn to merge an updated design model into Tekla Structures and compare the models.
Learn how to export a file from Tekla Structures in IFC 4 format, and how to upload it to Trimble Connect. Learn how to use the Trimble Connect user interface and how to handle data in Trimble Connect.
Learn about drawing layout editor in Tekla Structures. Learn how to create a new drawing layout, how to adjust drawing sizes, frames, and fold marks. Additionally, learn how to add tables to drawing layouts, and how to adjust position of drawing views.
You can now generate cutting patterns for reinforcing bars to reduce waste during cutting. With this new extension, you can calculate optimal amounts and lengths of stock-length reinforcing bars, for example 12 or 16 m, based on the selected rebar or the rebar of the entire model. You can export the results to text files for further processing in Microsoft Excel, for example. Now you can accomplish this task more effectively and enjoy clear improvements regarding waste reduction and cost optimization.
This new extension allows you to define the contour of an area and configure its content (number of layers, profile, and orientation of elements, management of finishes, creation of openings, contour and openings edges offset management)

Tekla Structures 2021 keeps improving on drawing dimension associativity, with new support for dimension tag content. Additionally, you can associate dimensions to objects during creation of the dimension. With this added control, you can be confident that drawing dimensions can react correctly to changes in the model and /or cloning of the drawings.

Many times we're importing and converting IFC files from software products other than Tekla. Because of this, you will find that names of materials and shapes may not match the way we name them, and the conversion will fail to identify the shape or grade of a part.
In this video, we take a look at updating the mapping settings so that converted parts show up with the correct material grade the first time.
Have you ever wondered if you could include more information in your IFC files? This Tips and Tricks video shows how you can add custom values like User-Defined Attributes to your IFC export, whether you are using them for Estimodeling or for collaboration with other project teams.
Many fabricators use standardized pieces for their connections, whether they are shear plates, clip angles, or some other commonly used part. When these need to have a common piece mark, a standard parts model helps define those marks.
Model templates are an easy way to save standard job properties and things like custom components so that your model is ready when you start a new project. These can be saved locally or set up on a server for your team, and in this video, we take a look at how to do so.
