These notes cover the integration process when integrating models between Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Structures. When considering the integration of Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Structures it is important to understand that the information transferred is essentially the physical information associated with the structure - e.g. geometry, section sizes and grade, number of studs and slab thicknesses etc.
Tekla Structures allows engineers to quickly and easily create accurate structural models complete with information that offer value from design to construction completion. Design data can be imported and enhanced
with Tekla Structures for the production of complete, coordinated and constructible drawings and material lists.
The integration process allows users to pass models to and from Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Structures, updating changes to the physical model whilst also allowing both parties to concurrently update their own
versions of the model. As the model is integrated between software applications, the user will find that changes are updated whilst additional items created since the last export operation are maintained within the model.
