Tekla Structures 2017i

Steel Weld mark placement improved

The new version of Tekla Structures introduces significant improvements in weld mark placing – thanks to these, you can now save hours in drawing editing.

Supply chain management with Tekla Structures and Trimble Connect

New tools on top of Trimble’s collaboration platform, Trimble Connect, allow effective, model and cloud-based supply chain management between Tekla Structures and Trimble Connect - or even your own system, thanks to Trimble Connect API. The new workflow tools enable easy management and sharing of real-time project situation information, regardless of location and using both desktop and mobile tools.

The clear 3D visualizations of Tekla Structures allow efficient communication of the status of your work. Now managing and updating information such as production or pour statuses is easy with Trimble Connect. Using cloud-based technology, sharing status changes with the whole project team can happen just by a push of a button.

2017 main version features

Fabrication

Tekla Structures 2017i

Organizer speed improvement

Synchronization of model data for Organizer is now faster, which improves information management in all stages of model-based workflows with Tekla Structures.

 

Structural steel

Issue tool

You can automatically manage fabrication packages with the issue tool, which can track changes in part and assembly marks between revisions.

Production links add efficiency to the workflow

  • You can produce NC data of unfolded plates for nesting and fabrication.
  • With Multi converter, you can export model data to different formats including STEP/IGES for robotic welding and tube manufacturing.

Enhanced documentation

  • With the new version, you can produce drawings that include bend line and radius information for production of unfolded plates.

Precast concrete

Enjoy efficiency and smooth information with Tekla Structures 2017.

Palletizer: A new tool for production planning

Palletizer is an easy to use 3D application, which utilizes the production-ready model information for planning and arranging the optimal pallet layout for precast panels on working tables. Palletizer benefits especially production planning, saving time in planning process and preventing human errors in information transfer between detailing and production.

  • Select production-ready precast elements from the model
  • Add elements to pallets manually, or choose automated optimized placing
  • Palletizer calculates pallet utilization ratios for you. Adjusting placing on a pallet is easy, and you can move the elements from one pallet to another for optimal placing.
  • Palletizer follows up and visualizes which elements are already included in the plan. Finalized pallet-specific plans can be printed out for plant staff.  

New production links

The new links bring smoother workflows.

  • PXML file export transfers data from the model to precast production control software in ProgressXML file format.
  • UXML file export transfers data from the model to precast production control software in UnitechnikXML file format.
  • EliPlan file export transfers model data to Elematic’s new hollow core production planning and management software FloorMES
