Integrate and interface

With Tekla, you can enjoy smooth real-time collaboration and information sharing between the project parties as the software integrates or interfaces with standard industry process planning and analysis and design applications. Tekla software integrates to modern fabrication machinery.

Flexible industrial collaboration

In industrial projects, you benefit from better layout coordination and structural information as Tekla Structures interfaces with the major process equipment and plant layout planning solutions including PDS, PDMS and Smartplant3Dand Cadmatic as well as Autocad and Microstation.  You can import changes from planning solution to Tekla, accommodate the changes into your structures and export your structural data.  






Analysis & Design

Tekla software links with all major A&D packages directly or by supporting standards including SDNF, CIS/2 and IFC structural and in-house A&D calculation spreadsheets.

Creating the physical and analytical structural models in a single application saves time. The analysis programs return the design information and dynamically update the Tekla model and all relevant documentation.
