Lindapter Hollo-Bolt plug-in tool available in Tekla warehouse
Working in partnership with Trimble Solutions (UK), Lindapter has launched a new Tekla plug-in tool, which it said will help to facilitate the efficient and accurate detailing of its Hollo-Bolt system into structural steelwork models.
Available to download within the Tekla warehouse, the tool enables Lindpater’s system to be incorporated directly into a Tekla user’s 3D BIM model in the Tekla Structures software package.
Prior to this product launch, Tekla and Lindapter customers would have had to manually model a generic steel bolt connection with no specific attributes.
Lindapter Engineering Director Sunny Bansal said: “As a business, we’ve been wanting to integrate our products into BIM software for a while. As the global industry leader in structural steelwork detailing software, Tekla was the ideal partner for us to work with to further enhance our digital journey.
“This plug-in tool does exactly that, providing a simplified and improved user experience for fabricators and steel detailers, enabling them to utilise our solutions within Tekla’s digital and automated 3D environment.”
