Re: CREATING NEW PROFILE 25.08.2016 11:16

Cant understand what these text mean. Could you upload any image to illustrate them. Or you can create them by yourself. You can use Sketch Editor in Tekla to create your own section shape. They can also be parametric section.

Linux should be supported
Re: Tekla Structures Learning 19 05.07.2014 16:56

I believe Linux should be supported in all kind of softwares as it is one of the major operating systemes with inscreasing number of users among the world

I have a video available that illustrates some tips and techniques for modeling parts and assemblies. The video shows how I model and create drawings for an anchor bolt, but the same methods can be used to create just about anything. I hope you find it useful! Here's the link: CS Wilson
