From design and detailing to creating calculations and production drawings: it's easy with Tekla Structures. Find the optimal solution, manage changes and collaborate efficiently with the project team. The designs are characterized by accurate geometries and consistent information, enabling engineers to mainly focus on design instead of documentation.
Create 3D models of steel, concrete and timber with all necessary information for guaranteeing the stability and constructability of structures. Tekla Structures is particularly valuable when designing on LOD300+ (Level Of Detailing). Numerous functionalities for connections and rebar enable refining the model to an unlimited LOD. Subsequently it is possible to visualize how structures fit together and solve potential clashes before the construction starts. A reliable design also requires accurate, transparent analyses. With Tekla, it is no longer necessary to create manual spreadsheets: simply access the elaborate library of automated structural and civil calculations, covering all common elements and materials. It is also possible to write and distribute your own calculations.
The open approach to BIM and easy exchange possibilities with other software make Tekla very suitable for BIM collaboration, both internally and externally with the entire project team. Transferring information can be done through uniformal file formats IFC and BCF, furthermore it is possible to work with third party file formats like SketchUp SKP, Adobe PDF, Autodesk DWG, STEP, XML and more. This ensures a seamless collaboration with architects, engineers, detailers and contractors in every phase of the project: share the design with other parties and use their BIM data.
