Add material back to cuts

This video shows a feature that many Tekla modelers, especially on the steel side, are not aware of. If you need to modify the shape of a cut, you don't always need to accomplish it with one command or object, instead you can actually cut the cut to restore material to your steel objects. In this video we show a simple real world example how we can add a radius chamfer to a flange notch without recreating the overall cut.

Easier editing of model object dimensions

You can now modify the dimensions of model objects within Tekla Structures even more quickly. Click a dimension, type a new value, and then press Enter. The dimension changes immediately. The yellow arrow defines the direction in which the object is extended or shortened. You can change the direction by clicking the arrows.
