Detailing Manager

by Tekla User Assistance
0
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 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 featurepart of Tekla Structures functionality that is maintained and owned by Trimble Solutions and that is included in the Tekla Structures installation is available starting from Tekla Structures 2016.
