Optimize material usage with rebar nesting

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.

Mapping IFC file properties

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.
