Key features for modelling

YouTube video: 

Watch as we explore key features for modelling in Tekla Structures 2020. We’ll take a look at general improvements made to the visual representationthe way that the information included in a model is represented visually

of the model before moving on to the enhanced point cloudgroup of measured points that are imported to Tekla Structures as one unit

Point clouds can be placed by the model origin or by a defined base point.

functionalities. The Point clouds side pane has been completely renewed with new features and improvements, including options for customizing point size and density, and depth perception of point clouds and clash detection heatmaps. We’ll model complex platework with lofted plates and create unfolded single part drawings before moving on to model sloping slabs with varying elevations. Finally, we’ll talk you through how to use the improved integration between Tekla Structures and Trimble Connect(1) application for information sharing and collaboration for construction projects that is based on the Trimble Connect platform

(1) Reference models are used in Trimble Connect application instead of using import and export.

(1) Trimble Connect application includes web, desktop and mobile clients, and the Sync tool, for example.

(2) Trimble’s platform for microservices in the cloud

(2) Trimble Connect platform’s microservices include services for uploading, storing, processing, and managing or consuming data. These services are meant to provide common solutions required by multiple applications.
