How to use numeric snapping

Learn how to use numeric snapping in Tekla Structures. Numeric snapping means that you either define a distance that is calculated from the last point picked, or you enter the exact coordinates of the point you want to pick. In this example, we will enter distances only. We cover the following: 00:17 Start numeric snapping 00:39 Define first point 00:55 Define second point 01:08 Track beyond snap point 01:36 Enter negative values

Create construction planes

Learn how to create construction planes in your Tekla Structures model. Construction planes are transparent modeling aids that are not shown or printed in drawings. You can place them in the model to help position other objects more easily. We cover the following: 00:11 Create construction planes 00:54 Modify construction plane properties 01:02 Magnetic construction planes

Create construction polycurves

Learn how to create construction polycurves in your Tekla Structures model. Construction polycurves are transparent modeling aids that are not shown or printed in drawings. Polycurves pass through the points you pick and they can have both straight and curved segments. You can place them in the model to help position and align objects along the curve.

Drawing rule sets

In this tips and tricks video we learn about drawing rule sets - what they are, how they work, and how you can customize your own. Pairing model filters with drawing settingssettings that control what the drawing looks like and what it includes Drawing settings can be defined in the modeling mode when creating a drawing, and they can be modified in the drawing mode.The range of the objects and elements that drawing settings affect may vary.
