Tekla has been a wide steel industry for quite some point. In point of fact, Tekla’s structural engineering software dates back to the late 1960s. Decades and many milestones later, Tekla is still running strong. When Tekla Corporation acquired by Trimble, an international technology company with headquarters in Silicon Valley, that was the recent dominant milestones was in 2011. Tekla re-branded as Trimble in 2016 and in March of this year, Trimble declared three new versions, for structural engineering, fabrication and construction teams,
1. Tekla Structures 2017
2. Tekla Structural Designer 2017
3. Tekla Tedds 2017
Jari Heino, general manager of Trimble’s Structures Division said that “In these new Tekla versions, we focus on improving communication and modeling methods because these are directly bound to the productivity of core tasks within large workgroups and projects”. The software provides a variety of completely new tools for users to expand their scope of work and cooperate with project stakeholders to ensure that the entire team is on the same page.
Tekla Structures 2017
The most recent variant of Trimble’s BIM programming for general plan touts cutting-edge techniques and enhanced outline correspondence. Clients now have more control over direct adjustment, which implies that a clear basic model can be delivered all the more rapidly and effectively. This change empowers activities to achieve the downstream procedures like itemizing and drawing creation early, which at last means a speedier course to the last development stage. Concerning correspondence, Basepoint permits colleagues crosswise over exchanges to profitably convey inside the BIM work process by giving exact, up-to-date coordinates. There is additionally another module for live algorithmic demonstrating in conjunction with a graphical calculation editorial manager, Rhino/Grasshopper.
There are also additional improvements for use with concrete and precast concrete. It also increased flexibility when creating and modifying reinforcements for different concrete shapes, along with the pour unit feature that helps manage all pour-specific information, will be welcome additions to concrete designers. The new release also helps in the information exchange between detailing and production of precast concrete fabrication with new data transfer links to production management.
The steel detailing phase has been upgraded with full support for direct modification of bent steel plates. This modification helps users to create simple bent gussets, folded profiles, spiral stringer plates, transitional duct sections, complexly folded panels and more.
An accurate 3D model doesn’t ensure a successful project. The ability to create drawings of the parts and components that make up a successful project. The most recent variant of Tekla Structure guarantees that plan expectation is imparted plainly by empowering greater adaptability in the forming of illustrations, and another 2D library takes out tedious work.
Tekla Structural Designer is Trimble’s analysis and design (A&D) software, which helps the designers to create the perfect structural solution for the application at hand. The features including in new version are helping in foundation design, like making foundation design more efficient by automating the number of piles required, together with comprehensive calculations and material take-off within a single model. There are also new wind load processes that are meant to help designers speed the computation of wind load on complex-shaped buildings.
Tekla Tedds 2017
Designed with the intention of increasing engineering productivity and quality. Tekla Tedds aims to diminish the risk of errors. It automates repetitive structural and civil calculations. The 2017 release includes a large addition of new calculations and improvement across various design codes. Both Eurocodes and U.S. codes are supported new steel column and base plate design. For the creation of project documentation, calculations, sketches and notes Microsoft Word can be used.
