Architects can work together with structural engineers and contractors using Tekla BIM software on a project. Tekla technology ensures that architectural design intent stays consistent with what is being built at the construction site.
Tekla BIM can be used for
- Design collaboration
Unmatched speed for collaboration during the design phase; numerous filtering tools and illustrations to use when hosting coordination meetings
- Construction collaboration
Manage and track data flow by the construction team and structural engineer
- Visualizing exposed structures
View exposed structural steel, structural wood or even precast concrete during the early stages of conceptual design
Open, collaborative BIM
The Tekla BIM concept
supports open collaboration and interoperability and 3D building information models that can be utilized and shared by all building and construction disciplines.
is a free-of-charge software application for building information model-based project cooperation.
provides an accurate, detailed, intelligent and data-rich 3D building information modeling environment.
Tekla is IFC-certified by the International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI). Using Tekla, it is possible to share model and drawing information with all IFC-compliant architectural modeling programs.
For example, there is a unique XML link between Tekla Structures and Graphisoft ArchiCAD, which allows architects and engineers to share and coordinate project information. Tekla software ensures effective collaboration and referencing for both architects and structural engineers. Tekla software supports legacy formats, such as DGN and DWG with an AutoCAD drawing export, allowing engineers to create DWG files. The drawings can then be imported into the architectural drawing environment for production or referencing.
