Exciting news! Our brand new Tekla User Assistance service is now available as a beta version. The new service is fast, mobile-friendly, and has a renewed Search. Visit https://beta-support.tekla.com to see for yourself!
Engineers can now assess their designs for embodied carbon at the Early-Stage Design Phases (A1, A2 and A3) using Tekla Structural Designer.
This tutorial will show that assessment is simple and instantaneous alllowing an engineer to:
Compare Embodied Carbon vs Design Utilization.
Breakdown Embodied Carbon by Material, Member Type, Slab, etc.
Compare different scheme options.
Track progress as they make refinements to drive down the carbon impact.
Base plates can now be modeled and checked within Tekla Structural Designer for EC3 and US (simplified) designs, thus streamlining your workflow. It is no longer necessary to export to Tekla Connection Designer.
Detailed and transparent calculations, GA drawings include base plates, bolts and dimensions.
The carbon impact of construction is coming under ever greater scrutiny. Engineers can now assess their designs for embodied carbon at the early-stage design phases A1,A2 and A3 in Tekla Structural Designer.
Assessment is simple, quick and instantaneous allowing the Engineer to compare Embodied Carbon v Design Utilization, compare different scheme options and track progress as they make refinements to drive down the carbon impact.
In this eLearning course you will gain an understanding of the different analyses models carried out by Tekla Structrual Designer.
As well as a full 3D building analysis, where models contain concrete, additional analysis models are created to provide results in line with traditional expectations.
The course aims to provide an explanation as to why Tekla Structural Designer does this, by explaining what all the analysis models are and why Tekla Structural Designer does it this way.
Watch as we explore key features for analysis and design in Tekla Structural Designer 2020, Service Pack 4. Analysis will cover dynamic analysis and the process needed to complete this successfully before moving onto wall distributed reactions and the improved output for mesh walls. Design topics will cover patterning of eccentricity moments from steel beams on steel columns, minimum design forces and the pile punching check between piles and the mat foundations.
Watch as we explore some of the key features and enhancements available for modelling in Tekla Structural Designer 2020, Service Pack 4. We’ll take a look at three main areas considered as modelling enhancements starting with how to model ancillary loading. This is a new feature that allows the user to quickly create loading for ancillary items such as, ladders (with and without cages), stairs, pipework and walkways etc. These loads can be set as line or area loads. Secondly, we’ll look at modelling inactive members.
Watch as we explore key features in Tekla Structural Designer 2020 and subsequent service packs. We’ll take a look at general improvements made to the Find functionality before moving on to some new features, such as Beam end partial fixity. Tekla Structural Designer now has the ability to model a connection stiffness between ‘Fully Fixed’ and ‘Pinned’ for Beams to Columns, Beams to Beams, Beams to Walls and Beams to Supports.
In this tutorial, we will take a detailed look at Property Sets, learn what they are, and how they can help us to work more efficiently with the Properties window.
Using property sets, we can quickly and easily assign and change the properties of entities within the model, and easily ensure consistent data for entities of the same type, that are required to be identical.
We will learn how to save property sets, manage, recall, and apply property sets, to both individual and multiple entities in the model.

You will also learn how to check what your subscription period is and how many licenses are in use.
This eLearning tutorial looks at modeling aids (construction levels, construction lines, gridlines and architectural grids) as well as how to model the various physical object types (columns , beams, walls, slabs, trusses and panels).
This eLearning tutorial looks at how to configure Tekla Structural Designer to work the way you wish to work. It looks at Settings sets and how these become Model settings when New project files are created.
You will learn how to update both, copy information between the two, and create a company standard settings sets to share with colleagues.
This eLearning tutorial welcomes you to the Tekla Structural Designer First steps course. It also introduces Tekla Structural Designer by demonstrating both a steel and a concrete model being created, loaded, designed and output being generated.
Please note that the demonstrations are intended to be quick, with little to no explanation so that you can grasp the main process and workflow without being distracted by too much detail at this stage. The subsequent lessons will fill in the blanks.
Tekla Structural Designer now supports a database of predefined Deltabeam sections for modeling and analysis, which makes modeling easy and fast. The Engineer is able to add additional ones, no design is performed. Size is determined using “Peikko Designer”. Tekla Structural Designer generates a member forces report to send to “Peikko”. Deltabeams are shown on the drawings and reported in material listings.
