Tekla Structures - the Most Advanced BIM Software for Structural Workflow

Tekla Structures is the most advanced structural software for BIM. With it, you can create, combine, manage and distribute accurate multi-material models full of construction information, and manage and communicate the design. 

You can use Tekla Structures for design, detailing and information management from conceptual planning to fabrication and construction on site. The consistent information and better collaboration bring high quality and profitable projects.

Accurate, rich, easily available model information improves understanding and helps create trust between construction project parties, regardless of their location. Tekla model information transfers between software solutions, digital construction tools and machinery.  
 

Open approach to Building Information Modeling

Tekla is ready to use, but you can optimize it if you want. As Tekla has an open approach to BIM, you can run other providers’ solutions and fabrication machinery and still interface with Tekla. Extending and enhancing Tekla Structures is easy with Tekla Open API, the application interface.

One software solution, different configurations and environments

Tekla Structures is one software solution that has different configurations to match different needs of our customers.

Tekla Structures has 30 localized environments and 14 user interface languages to make using and implementing the software easier around the world.

Analysis & Design Go Hand in Hand

With Tekla software, you can model any type of structure of any material, or include several materials to one model.  The software can interface with several analysis and design (A&D) packages through Tekla Open API. In addition, Tekla Structures links with A&D packages by file transfer. Supported formats include, for example, SDNF, CIS/2 and IFC. If you use in-house A&D calculation spreadsheets, Tekla Structures can also link with these.

The benefits of linking with A&D packages include coordination and visualization with the model, drawings and reports and efficient change management. Both engineers and draftsmen can work on the same project model.  

Drawings, reports and machinery

Tekla integrates with the most of major advanced production or resource planning and machine automation systems that fabricators of steel structures, precast concrete elements and rebar use.  Production information can automatically transfer from Tekla model to these systems and minimize manual work and errors. Drawings can be extracted from the model, and they update with the model. Additionally, you can use the model for material quantity take offs.  

To interface with a broader range of manufacturing machinery, Tekla uses different file formats. 

Smoother workflow

Tekla software allows effective information flow: Architects, engineers and contractors can share and coordinate project information. Tekla links with major AEC, MEP and with plant design software solutions thanks to open BIM approach and IFC compliancy. The software supports DGN and DWG. Tekla BIM software also integrates with industry leading construction management and analysis and design software.

The benefits of this open approach include better layout coordination and structural information that supports leaner construction. Users enjoy better productivity and less frustration. 

Tekla also links to project management applications that further help the users understand and visualize the true scope and context of schedule line items, material ordering, payment requests, and the objects that other project parties create. In addition, mapping critical components of project management information into corresponding intelligent model objects provides users the opportunity to create dashboard views of project status.
