What's new?


Steel Fabrication

Choosing Tekla Structures 20 makes planning and managing fabrication and detailing workflows more efficient – be it in the design office or on the shop floor. Collaborate better throughout the value chain with enhanced interoperability with other software solutions.

After you download the new version, you can benefit from more efficient and productive modeling, while the new features let you visualize and create solid welds, including automatic weld preparations.

Using this automatic weld preparation can save time and ensure the integrity of the welds. – Test user



Precast Fabrication

Tekla Structures 20 offers precast concrete fabricators new and better tools for more productive modeling and detailing. Organize the model, manage fabrication packages and purchase more efficiently with improved workflow tools. Model and modify filigree, hollow-core, and other precast slabs with the new, intuitive floor tool, and modify your single reinforcement bars, bar groups, and meshes faster and easier than ever. Creating cast-unit drawings is now more flexible with the new dimensioning functionality, and you can check and adjust distances of rebar in the model with the upgraded Clash Checking tools.

Yes this Direct Manipulation mode is a way more intuitive way of modeling and it speeds up the whole process. – Test user



Structural Engineering

The new Tekla Structures 20 brings you a chance to collaborate better and improve coordination. Save time and avoid mistakes by using geometries that other project parties have already created, and then use the Comment Tool for quick, clear communication. Import and export parts from Trimble Sketch Up, and then communicate your design intent to others.

The new software version comes with more links to A&D solutions, and Aveva PDMS and Intergraph Smart 3D interoperability ensure that both the plant structures and process equipment fit together. With new and improved Drawing functionality, you can handle revisions and then print and export easily.

Finally it is there, Import Part is a very important feature to allow us to use complex shapes in Tekla. It is very easy to use. – Test user



Welcome a smoother workflow with Tekla Structures 20 – now with new and improved features, like Organizer, Task Manager, and Clash Check Manager.

Organizer benefits everybody with better, more efficient model information management, increased automation, and is more intuitive to use. Improved Direct Manipulation functionality makes grid modifications easier and faster. Task Manager now offers all users a systematic way to manage detailing and plan fabrication and on-site erection. Clash Check Manager helps you maintain the highest model and design quality – simply prioritize, communicate, assign and coordinate any conflicts that may come up.

To be honest, I even didn't dream of having such an automatic feature as Organizer in Tekla Structures in the near future! This is great and I can't wait to use this in our daily work. – Test user
