Tekla Structures v15

Tekla Structures 15 is Building Information Modeling (BIM) software that enables the creation and management of accurately detailed, highly constructable 3D structural models regardless of material or structural complexity. Tekla models can be used to cover the entire building process from conceptual design to fabrication, erection and construction management.

Tekla Structures 15 can be used to interface with other existing applications, or solely as a platform to develop a customizable internal solution. Its open platform supports interoperability and standardization. Tekla Structures links with various systems through Tekla Open API™ application programming interface that is implemented using Microsoft® .NET technology. Examples of standard formats supported by Tekla Structures are IFC, CIS/2, SDNF and DSTV. Examples of proprietary formats supported by Tekla Structures are DWG, DXF and DGN.

Tekla Structures configurations
Tekla Structures is one product available in different configurations that provide specialized set of functionality to suit the segment-specific needs of the construction industry.
Tekla Structures 15, Engineering is a standard configuration that enables synchronized engineering. Professionals in structural engineering and design can collaborate with other project participants and stakeholders using the same shared model.

The modeling function allows users to

Create and view Tekla Structures models (all materials and profiles)
Create and modify grids
Model bolts and welds
Add loads to a model
Create conceptual connections (no workshop output)
Model conceptual reinforcements (no workshop output)
Create automatic preset connections to multiple parts
Create erection sequences
View model information in 4D (simulated schedule)
The output function allows users to

Customize drawing title blocks and reports
Create general arrangement drawings (plan, section, erection)
Print and plot drawings and reports
Create reports (assembly lists, part lists, material take off)
The collaboration properties allow users to

Work simultaneously on the same model with several users
Interface with other tools and disciplines
Publish models to be viewed on the Internet
Exchange data (CIS/2 format, MIS systems)
Import external/export data via links (FEM, SDNF, XML)
Import and export data via IFC 2x2, 2x3 and Tekla Open API™
Data exchange interface with Analysis and Design software
Import and export graphic 2D and 3D data (DXF, DGN, DWG)
