Creating custom shapes for use with the CMU tools in Tekla Structures

In this video, we will discuss the workflow for creating a concrete item, specifically a masonry unit for use in the CMU Wall Tools. This video covers the process of modeling the shape using native Tekla Tools and using that geometry to create a shape for inclusion in the Shape Catalog. Additionally, we touch on a few tips for creating your own custom library of shapes. Make sure to check out our previous video on the shape catalog and how to manage a custom library of shapes via a company folder: The Renewed Shape Catalog.
