In this video we use the Floor Layout tool to quickly apply decking profiles, and direct modification tools to adjust the parts. In this video, we will learn:
How to insert decking profiles using the Floor Layout component
Use direct modification to change the deck direction
Use the contextual toolbar to add penetrations to the deck
It is possible to replace the standard anchor rods in a base plate component with custom components. In this video we take a look at some of the default anchor custom components included with the US Imperial Environment and how to use them inside a base plate component like 1047.
Model sloping and skewed framing easily with magnetic construction objects in Tekla Structures. View this video to learn how to utilize these tools for ‘hip and valley’ framing scenarios or situations where you need to modify a grid line and have the framing adjust accordingly.
Tekla Structures gives you the ability to customize your ribbon and create new tabs for your favorite tools. But what if you wanted to share these tabs with others? In this video we learn how to isolate part of the ribbon so you can share just those desired tools with other people on your team.
In this video we introduce 3 new commands to help you be more efficient. These features are available starting from Tekla Structures 2018.
1. Undo history - All the commands that you have run and the modifications you have done are now listed in the new Undo history dialog box. By selecting a command or an action in the Undo history dialog box, you can undo or redo several commands at one go, and thus go back and forth in the model history.
Learn how to use the Management Console. With Management Console, administrators can list and delete models, add users and modify the roles of users, lock and unlock shared models, and delete versions from the model.
Take a look at customizing the Applications & Components catalog so that you can more easily find your favorite tools in Tekla Structures.
In this video we will:
Create custom groups of tools by type
Organize your custom groups
Link external applications
These improvements are available starting from Tekla Structures 2018.
In this video we introduce:
The Drawing Content Manager - a new interactive tool for checking and editing marks, notes and model objects in the current drawing.
Improved mark placement
New ways to interact with drawing marks
In this video we take a quick look at some of the most common settings you may want to make when starting a project. Watch to see a review of several options including:
Standard bolt diameter and grade when components are set to "Default"
Dual-Dimensioning in Imperial and Metric - often needed for government contracts in the US
Standard units - commonly used for more accurate gauge material modeling
Tekla Structures 2017i introduces a new tool for creating rebar sets. With Rebar shape placing tool you can reinforce both parts and pour objects using predefined bar shapes. The rebar sets you create may extend across single or multiple objects. You can easily select cross sections or object faces that you want to reinforce, and then, using preview and direct modification, place rebar sets in the model.
You can now insert point clouds into Tekla Structures 2018. In construction, the point clouds are mainly used in renovation projects to define the building or structure that is to be renovated. They can also be used to get the exact position of existing machinery, pipework or landscape that needs to be taken into consideration on the site. You can also use them for checking execution by importing them as build points into a model to be compared to the design.
In Tekla Structures 2018 most model objects now have a property pane in the modeling mode. The new property pane replaces the previously used model object properties dialog boxes. The new property pane has several benefits compared to the previously used property dialog boxes:
