Hi, you may possibly need to add the reference to the solution, which can be done through the following steps : 

  • Open your Project within the Solution Explorer
  • Right-click the References folder and Choose Add Reference....
  • Find and select the assembly that corresponds to your error message or class.
  • Click the Ok button to add it to your Project.

One more thing, you cannot just type  using Tekla;. You would need to define the namespace you would like to use, such as  using Tekla.Structures.Model;
