Tekla Tedds

Using Tekla Tedds you can automate your repetitive structural and civil calculations. Access a library of pre-written quality assured, code compliant calculations, or write your own custom calculations, and create professional and consistent documentation.

Tekla Structural Designer

Tekla Structural Designer is revolutionary software that gives engineers the power to analyze and design buildings efficiently and profitably. It is fully automated and packed with unique features to help you create optimized concrete and steel designs.

Tekla Structural Designer Lite

The Lite version of Tekla Structural Designer has all the same features and functionality to rapidly create optimized concrete and steel designs as the full product. Projects are limited in size to either 200 members or a finite element mesh of 4000 plates.

Tekla Portal Frame Designer

Tekla Portal Frame Designer is now an integrated part of the Tekla software family. Integrating seamlessly with Tekla Structural Designer or acting as a stand alone application, Tekla Portal Designer is packed full of features and functionality that enable efficient and rigorous design to create cost effective design solutions for steel portal frame buildings.

Tekla Connection Designer

Use Tekla Connection Designer as a standalone product to design moment or simple connections. For improved design efficiency moment and base plate connections smoothly integrate with Tekla Structural Designer.

Tekla Structures

Tekla Structures is a comprehensive Building Information Modeling (BIM) solution developed specifically for Structural Engineers. Collaborate efficiently with other project parties and produce all your structural BIM documentation, including construction drawings, detailed drawings for steel and reinforcement, reports and material schedules.

Fast, efficient analysis & design

Model, load, analyze and design buildings in a fraction of the time. From scheme design all the way through to detailed design, one single model covers all your structural analysis and design requirements, encompassing both gravity and lateral systems. There is no need for multiple design models.

The Tekla solution is fully automated and packed with many unique features for optimized concrete and steel building design, so you can compare alternative design schemes, manage changes easily and collaborate seamlessly with BIM platforms.

Because all the structural analysis & design functions are combined into a single solution, there are no additional modules or software packages to purchase, maintain, learn or integrate with.

Automated structural calculations

Producing accurate, transparent and well-presented calculations is essential. With Tekla there is no need to write calculations by hand or manage cumbersome spreadsheets; simply access a broad library of automated structural and civil calculations, covering all common elements and materials. And, for total flexibility, you can easily write and distribute your own custom calculations within our software.

Creating professional and customized output is simple and easy, plus you can include any additional information such as sketches and notes. Enhance your Quality Assurance processes and improve consistency across your business and projects.

Enhance communication

We understand the importance of BIM collaboration, both internally within the structural design office and externally with the project team. We are committed to delivering interoperability with other software vendors and fully support an open approach to BIM.

With Tekla solutions, structural engineers and drafters can coordinate seamlessly with architects, service engineers, detailers and contractors at any stage of the project, using industry standard file formats and custom integration links. Our open approach means that you and your design team can choose the right tools for your workflow. 

Fast and intelligent modelling

Our solution enables you to develop constructible, intelligent Building Information Models, which can contain a high level of detail for increased accuracy and confidence. All this and there is absolutely no compromise to speed and performance, even when working on the largest, most complex models and projects.

Level of Detail / Development (LOD)

Requests for Information (RFIs) and resolving clashes on site cost you money. Using Tekla software you can create 3D constructible models quickly, then visualise and explore how the structure will fit together when built, before the project gets to site. See the problems before they become reality and minimise expensive delay and rework.

Professional contract documentation

With Tekla you can produce all your structural documentation, including construction drawings, detailed drawings for steel and reinforcement, reports and material schedules at a touch of a button. They are all fully automated, so there is no need to create and update drawings manually.

Because change management can be costly, we have made it easy for you. Working within a Building Information Model means that you can make changes quickly and automatically update all the associated documents in an instant. You can share updates with your project team at every stage of the project with minimal effort. Maximize productivity, improve coordination and manage changes easily.
