Correct modeling errors using Planarize in Tekla Structural Designer

It's not uncommon to occasionally see models with geometry issues such as entities that are very close to - but not quite - co-planar. Such small inconsistencies can cause issues with many operations, such as load decomposition and analysis, and should be avoided. Such issues rarely result from modeling directly in Tekla Structural Designer (TSD), but may more commonly occur for import of models with geometry issues from other applications, such as Revit. The new Planarize tool can assist you in resolving these inconsistencies by allowing you to move nodes of not-quite co-planar entities into the ‘correct’ target plane, as selected by you.
