In this video, we create rebar sets for curved concrete structures. Starting from Tekla Structures 2017i, also longitudinal curved rebars are supported, which means you can model even more complex concrete structures.
The Floor Layout tool has been moved to the ribbon for an easy access. You can now use direct modification with this tool, which means that the creation of floors and openings is easier and more visual than before. These improvements are available starting from Tekla Structures 2017i.
Working in conjunction with the largest cold rolled manufacturers in the UK we have created tools to allow Tekla Structures models to utilise each cold rolled systems. Intelligent joints/macros allow rapid modelling and updating of cold rolled accessories.
Base points allow you to use another coordinate system needed for interoperability and collaboration by defining base points for IFC exports and reference model imports. This feature is available starting from Tekla Structures 2016i.
You can create spiral beams using Tekla Structures. Spiral beams can be used to model spiral staircases, parking ramps, and complex architectural shapes, for example. Spiral beams can be shown in drawings either folded or unfolded. This feature is available starting from Tekla Structures 2017i.
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.
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.
The ribbon customizer is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get editor and allows you to
Create, rename, or delete ribbon tabs
Add, move, or remove ribbon commands
Modify the appearance of buttons, icons, and text
This feature is available starting from Tekla Structures 2016i.
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.
Support for the LandXML file format is another interoperability improvement that shows Trimble’s commitment to Open BIM and enhances practical project collaboration. This feature is available starting from Tekla Structures 2016.
This video has spoken narration in English.
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.
Learn the basics of creating object level settings to understand how Tekla drawings can be better automated to match your standards when they are created. This example focuses on a plan drawing but these concepts can be applied to all drawing types.
In this video we will review multidrawings in Tekla Structures. We will cover basic overview of multidrawings, best practices for drawings to be placed on multi-sheets as well as different methods to create the multidrawings.
Check out this video to see how to set-up your firm folders for all your concrete projects. You will learn how to assign the location of your firm folder, define your own settings, create your model template, and add advanced options settings to initialization (.ini) files.
In this video we will look at where you can find the different settings that affect numbering and part marks in Tekla Structures. We will review advanced options, numbering settings and what they mean as well as best practices for use in Tekla Structures.
Check out this video to learn how to create and use filters in drawings, Organizer, and Project Status Visualization tool. Work smarter in the model, reduce editing time in drawings, and manage your information more effectively by using out-of-the-box filters or creating your own custom filters.
