Curved construction objects and radial grids

YouTube video: 

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 planes

In 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. It is also possible to show grids and grid line labels in drawings, and to modify grid properties in the drawings.

It is possible to have more than one grid in a model. For example, a large-scale grid for the entire structure, and smaller grids for some detailed sections.

featurepart of Tekla Structures functionality that is maintained and owned by Trimble Solutions and that is included in the Tekla Structures installation

and shows how you can now create truly radial grids.  Use the radial grids as aids when you model round or curved structures, such as round columns, towers, tanks, circular platforms, and so on. If needed, you can create a full 360 degree grid.
