Tekla launches Tekla Structures 19 for building information modeling software
New Delhi, India, March 13, 2013: Tekla rolls out Tekla Structures 19. It shows the welds directly in the model – no need to interpret additional dialogues. Section View Creation in the drawings is visually guided. Curved shapes become smoother, and as the software interfaces to fabrication machinery, these shapes can be fabricated equally smooth.
With Model Organizer, Tekla users can classify and structure models by submittals, lots or sequencing. And there is a tool to get the tons and volumes quickly for parts, groups, phases and sequences.
Tekla’s Executive Vice President, Deputy CEO and GM of Trimble Buildings Structures Division Risto Raty, said, “We want to help the construction industry to change the bottom line for the better, regardless the materials they use. Better planning and estimating, understanding what you are doing and minimizing errors with Tekla definitely are competition assets.”
Tekla Structures 19 provides new opportunities. The Cast in Place concrete functions of the software provide concrete builders and designers with the tools they need to model, plan and pour accurately. To make the information flow through the projects, Tekla Structures 19 contains both new and improved links directly to fabrication and other software. Complex shapes such as spiral rebar export nicely to IFC to be used by other project parties.
Tekla now starts user assistance, a new interactive online help and self-support service, is just a click away. This is a great addition into the tool set that helps any Tekla user become a more advanced professional of BIM and the construction trade.
