Tekla 2017 software release for the construction industry

Posted on by in News

nTekla-1704Trimble has launched three new versions of its software for structural engineering, fabrication and construction teams: Tekla Structures 2017, Tekla Structural Designer 2017 and Tekla Tedds 2017.

The company said that the continuous development of Tekla Building Information Modelling (BIM) solutions demonstrates its commitment to innovation in structural engineering, offsite prefabrication and on-site efficiency.

“In these new Tekla versions, we focus on improving communication and modelling methods because these are directly tied to the productivity of core tasks within large workgroups and projects,” said General Manager of Trimble’s Structures Division Jari Heino.

“The software provides a variety of completely new tools for users to expand their scope of work and collaborate with project stakeholders to ensure that the entire team is on the same page.”

For steel detailing, the new version of Tekla Structures is said to improve modelling of steel bent plates with full support for direct modification.

It is claimed that editing and working with even the most complex bent plates is simple and intuitive. Users can create anything from simple bent gussets to folded profiles, spiral stringer plates, transitional duct sections and complex folded panels.

Tekla Structural Designer 2017 is said to deliver significant new features and enhancements focused on workflow productivity. Trimble claims it has improved numerous elements that combine to contribute significantly to the overall workflow for both steel and concrete code compliant structural design.
