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

On-site construction

Tekla Structures

Crane capacity checker for Tekla Structures

The new extension enables effective use of model information for checking crane lifting capacity for precast cast units or steel assemblies.

  • Calculate automatically the capacity utilization rates and visualize the results with model for planning the most optimal location for the crane.
  • When the crane and the location are already set, the tool helps to check and define the most optimal elementation for steel assemblies and precast elements.

Cast in place concrete

With the new Tekla Structures 2017, improvements in information management continue with constructible models that promote concrete pour productivity.

Pour content management with improved Pour unit performance

With the Pour unit feature, managing and reporting all pour specific information is effective and easy. Pour units are now calculated automatically, and all the content for reinforcement, embeds, anchor bolts, formwork and more can be linked to the respective pour with one command.

  • Quantify pour-specific materials automatically and create reports, rebar schedules and drawings  
  • Manage, remove and add content flexibly
  • Changes in the model automatically update the content in pour units and related documents

 

Next generation reinforcement method

The first phase of the new method introduces an intelligent reinforcement that understands the shape and features of concrete and makes modeling and modifying rebar faster. You can utilize pour geometry, splice the bars and set the end details of rebar more easily.

Construction drawings

Pour units can now be used to create pour-specific construction drawings more efficiently. You can use the information and parts like rebar and embeds belonging to a pour to easily specify the content of drawings.
