Detailing Manager

This video shows four examples of using Detailing Manager. Detailing Manager can be used to apply detailing components into any structure. With the help of Detailing Manager you can apply multiple detailing components with “one click" to the structure of the entire model. You can automate repetitive detailing tasks by defining the detailing rules using selection filters. This feature is available starting from Tekla Structures 2017.

Surfaces

The introduction of surface objects enables quick and correct surface area calculations of concrete objects. The use of surface objects automates tedious and traditionally manual tasks, and helps to make estimating formwork and concrete finish areas fast, easy and exact. This feature is available starting from Tekla Structures 2016. This video has spoken narration in English.

Use Tekla Structures tools efficiently for structural steel estimation

In this video we take a look at combining many of the tools in Tekla Structures to illustrate different ways to use the Tekla model for structural steel estimating. We review using PDF or IFC files, automatically applying connections, and generating reports or exporting to MIS software to leverage the Tekla model from the very beginning of your project.

Modeling improvements: 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.
