Improvements in bolt holes

This video shows a new feature that allows you to insert a bolt into the model without creating a hole in the object(s) it's bolting through.  For example, you could insert screws that will be installed on-site or bolt through objects that already have pre-drilled holes.  This means that your piece marks will stay the same but allow you to insert bolts into the model for accurate reporting of quantities.

New clone selected feature

When editing general arrangement drawings, you often need to repetitively add annotations, dimensions and styles for building objects throughout the drawing.  The new clone(performed by Tekla Structures) to create a new drawing by using a cloning templateCloning aims at using the drawing properties, view properties, and object properties from the cloning template in a new drawing.Drawings can be cloned from the current model or another model.Cloned drawings need some manual checking. selec

Curved construction objects and radial grids

In this video we introduce two new construction objects (construction arc and construction polycurve) and a new command to copy construction objects.  We also introduce the new radial gridmodeling aid that represents a three-dimensional complex of horizontal and vertical planesIn Tekla Structures, grids are used as an aid in locating objects in a model. The grid is shown on the view plane by dash-and-dot lines.
