Trimble releases Tekla 2021 Structural BIM solutions
Trimble has introduced the latest versions of its Tekla software solutions for Building Information Modelling (BIM), structural engineering and steel fabrication management – Tekla Structures 2021, Tekla Structural Designer 2021, Tekla Tedds 2021 and Tekla Power Fab 2021.
Tekla Structures 2021 is said to have three new subscription options, which can reduce the upfront investment and provide flexibility. The three options are:
- Carbon: for viewing models and collaborating with project stakeholders
- Graphite: for creating constructible, intelligent BIM and structural documentation
- Diamond: for design, detailing and fabrication
Tekla Structural Designer 2021 features a new carbon calculator. This provides the ability to understand a structure’s embodied carbon impact during design.
Meanwhile, the 2021 version of the steel fabrication management software, Tekla PowerFab, is said to deliver visual dashboard reporting, with enhanced options for filtering and organising data, as well as continued improvements for automated machine instruction on the shop floor.
