Import ACIS .SAT file
21.04.2015 13:35
Hi! I have a solid with complex geometry that i want to import to Tekla, from Revit. I tried via IFC reference model and also as a concrete item but in both cases the geometry came as a non-solid, so it's really hard to reinforce it... One thing I wanted to try is the .SAT file via, but I don't know why... Did someone knows how to import a .SAT file into Tekla? Thanks in advance!
Can anyone solve the issue of Tekla 2018 Crashing every time I try to Click on parts and create a part drawing or most buttons in the create drawings as it starts to load the goes black, freezes and then restarts/crashes??? ( I've updated my geforce driver and I'm on a gaming laptop that runs high powered Autocad, Advanced steel and all other software on windows 10/16gb/3ghz. Can Tekla or the software be adjusted to work?

I'm trying my best to generate a BBS from my CIP model. I've modelled all the reinforcements in beams and columns using the Component Catalog tools. I'm using the Rebar BBS(Excel).xls tool to generate the report of BBS. It is getting generated well and good. Can I have the images of the shapes appear in my BBS instead of just a shape code? Typically I would want it to be in the form of an excel sheet so that it is presentable.
when I use connection "Tube gusset(20)", the property dialog box is bigger than most of other connection property dialog box. The height of dialog box is greater than my computer screen height and it can not show full content, so I cannot modify anything in this component. My question is 'the component property dialog box size can adjust or not ?'
I have the largest resolution for my computer i have windows 8. Ive had this problem before that the component screen is to big for the screen and i cant make the window smaller, that makes that i cant work with the component for modyfing and choose ok and so on.. How can i make the Component window smaller? or do i have to chance OS or computer with larger resolution size... really odd problem ive had it with previous computers and windows 8...

If you cannot change the resolution of your screen, try using the following shortcuts.

Press ALT+SPACE+M, and then use the mouse or the arrow keys on your keyboard to move the dialog.

If you cannot see the buttons, use
ALT+A: Apply
ALT+M: Modify
ALT+G: Get
ALT+C: Cancel

Linking TEKLA with SAP2000
05.06.2014 18:31
Good morning, i would like to know how to create the plate connection of an inclined I beam into the pad. I only find the macro for the vertical element. Thanks How can I link Tekla with SAP2000? I have seen some programs on the extranet but i am not allowed to download them. Are those programs not available for the educational version? Thank you very much
component window size to big for screen
Re: component window size to big for screen 02.09.2015 19:24

I have exactly the same problem. I can't move or even resize the component screen, specifically the component: stairs(S71), thus, it makes impossible to change the component parameters. I really need a way to solve this question. Thanks in advance.

Selection issue with nVIDIA GTX SERIES VIDEO CARDS
Re: any new 16.01.2019 07:17

I found a very simple way to solve this and it works fine for me. Just go to file --> settings --> Switches and check Direct X rendering checkbox. I'm not a hardware expert but i think that GTX series video cards works better with this API because they are designed "to deal" with video games that in most cases uses this "rendering method" mainly. You must restart Tekla to changes take effect.

User variables in reports?
04.04.2014 21:09
I'm playing around with the reports and template editor in Tekla, trying to assemble my own reports. And I came upon the following problem: let's say I have a rebar schedule. Using a REBAR row works fine to list the different bars in an element. But, let's say I have to apply a factor to the different weights, to compensate for splices (it's a bit easier than modelling splices on complicated rebar arrangements). So I have my data row: GRADE_field - SIZE_field - WEIGHT_TOTAL_field - FACTOR_field - WEIGHT_ADJUSTED_field FACTOR_field is a huge nested IF statement: if SIZE == 3 then ... else if SIZE == 4 ... else if SIZE == 5 ... else ... endif endif endif First question: anyone have an easier way to assign factors to 11 different rebar sizes, than to create a huge nested IF? Is there a CASE function or something built into Tekla? Second question: if I want to calculate WEIGHT_ADJUSTED, which is basically my FACTOR x WEIGHT_TOTAL, could I simply state in the formula: CopyField("WEIGHT_TOTAL_field") * CopyField("FACTOR_field") (I tried this one, but it didn't work correctly and would apply the factor from the next row to the current row, am I missing something?) And third question, which is where it gets interesting. My factors aren't universal constants. Depending on the fabricator, they can go up or down. So every new project, I'd have to dive into that huge 11-level IF statement and start changing factors. Does anyone know if it's possible to define variables to contain the factors inside the formula, so as to not have to dive into the IF statement? What I mean is this: myvariable1 = 1.02 myvariable2 = 1.03 myvariable3 = 1.04 etc if SIZE == 1 then myvariable1 else if SIZE == 2 then myvariable2 else if SIZE == 3 then myvariable3 else ... endif So if my factors change, I change the starting lines of the function, and the rest stays the same. Or... is there a way to do this with value fields and then reference those value fields inside my IF statement?
