Import 3D rebar designs from Tekla Structural Designer

Watch how to transfer 3D rebar from reinforced concrete columns, beams, slabs, and footings designed with Tekla Structural Designer easily into Tekla Structures for fast automatic detailing. Laps, Cranks, Layers, and placement are identical to 2D drawing output but this fast and robust integration can reuse building information model [BIM] geometry in minutes that might take hours with Revit.
