Object level settings

Learn the basics of creating object level settingsdrawing settings that affect the representation of selected drawing objectsObject level settings can be defined when creating a new drawing or when modifying an open drawing.Object level settings can be use in a drawing or in a drawing view in order to change the representation of the chosen drawing objects. to understand how Tekla drawings can be better automated to match your standards when they are created.

Surface treatment - hints and tips

This video shows some tips and tricks to apply surface treatmentbuilding object that represents finishing of a partThe term surface treatment is used in concrete detailing. For concrete parts surface treatment includes surface mixes, tiles, and flat finishes, such as troweling and sandblasting.The term surface finish is used in steel detailing.

Modeling improvements: Easier editing of model object dimensions

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.

Rebar sets in curved structures

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.

New feature: Detailing Manager

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.

2D Library

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.
