Changes in orthogonal snapping

Tekla Structures 2019i introduces changes in orthogonal snapping behavior. The orthogonal snap points have the lowest priority among the snap points. If Tekla Structures detects any other possible snap point than an orthogonal point, that is used instead of the orthogonal snap point.

Tips & tricks: AutoConnections and AutoDefaults

This month we give a brief overview of the Autoconnection/Autodefaults settings in Tekla Structures and how they work. With more people estimodeling than ever before, configuring these settings to your companies standards means more accurate estimates and quicker connections in your building. Properly done, these can even be used to automate connecting your production models as well.
