Check out this video to learn how to create and use filters in the model. 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.
In this video, we review multi-level assemblies in Tekla Structures:
A look at different ways multi-level assemblies can be created
Selection tools to work with multiple hierarchy levels
Sample of drawing properties included with the US Imperial environment
The video has spoken narration in English.
This video shows some tips and tricks to apply surface treatment to all faces, a single face, or a selected area of a part within a Tekla Structures model. This video will also show you how to quickly mark no-paint around contact points or bolt groups and to see how these tools affect your shop drawings.
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.
In this video, we create rebar sets for curved concrete structures. First, we will create crossing bars that follow the bottom and side faces of the beam. After that, we will create longitudinal bars at the bottom face of the beam.
These features are available starting from Tekla Structures 2017i.
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.
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 2D Library is a powerful tool for presenting typical details and instructions. It's quick and easy to build up your own company library of 2D details and you can create details out of many kinds of drawing objects, such as parts, texts, notes, shapes, or DWG files. You can insert details in drawing views and drawings in any model.
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.
This concrete reinforcement tool specifically made to support double wall detailing workflow with functionality for placing vertical, horizontal or diagonal reinforcement around the edges and openings as well as narrow sections of panels.
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, the size, icons, and text
