Tekla Structures BIM software
Models created with Tekla BIM software carry the accurate, reliable and detailed information needed for successful Building Information Modeling and construction execution. Welcome smoother workflow to your company with Tekla Structures and constructable models.
Tekla works with all materials and the most complex structures – you set the limits. Our customers have used Tekla Structures to model stadiums, offshore structures, plants and factories, residential buildings, bridges and skyscrapers.
The new software version arrives with improvements and fixes – be it drawings, collaboration, or modeling complex geometries or reinforcement.
Create more complete drawings faster and take advantage of the benefits of the enhanced Layout and Template editors, DWG export functionality and Drawing snapshots.
The new Spiral Beam makes modeling structures such as spiral shaped stairs quick and easy, regardless of the material. Working with steel bent plates is now easier than ever. Precast concrete Floor and Wall Layout and the flexible, intelligent method for modeling and modifying reinforcement have been improved.
Tekla Structures 2017 includes a customizable user interface, contextual toolbar and enhancements that make modeling quicker and easier and design communication more effective. New links improve interoperability.
There is now more control to Direct modification, Organizer is faster and general arrangement and detailed drawings functionalities have been improved.
The user interface now has a customizable ribbon and contextual toolbar that can be implemented to all users in your company. Result: Optimized UI speeds up modelling for everyone. Also the 3D graphics have a new look with shadows.

More complete drawings faster
In drawing setup and layout, what you see is now what you get, which makes generating more reliable drawings from your constructible 3D model quicker and easier.
Enhanced Template editor
Template Editor enables powerful, clear and customizable reporting and scheduling. Create efficiently more reliable schedules and reports with exact quantities, using the format that best suits your business standards and looks professional. What you see on the drawing and on the schedule match 100%, and there is no need for Excel or exporting and re-importing.
Improved DWG export
With the enhanced DWG export functionality, you can create AutoCAD drawings fast. Utilize the accuracy of Tekla models to create AutoCAD files that follow industry requirements and standards for layers, colors and linetypes. Model curves in steel and concrete quickly, show it in drawings, and then easily update the model and drawing as the design changes.
New Spiral beam
The all new Spiral beam lets you model with ease spiral stringers, handrails, ramps, stairs and more. The spiral beam maintains a constant up direction for the profile and provides accurate, constructible geometry. With the property pane, it is easy to check and set properties for multiple spiral beams at once. It provides clear visualization of your changes and shows if the properties vary between the selected spiral beams.
Precast concrete: Enhanced Floor and Wall Layout tools
Floor and Wall Layout tools are now at hand in the Ribbon menu and easier to use, too. Direct preview in Floor Layout makes modeling easier and prevents misplacements of panels. You can move and copy both floor and wall openings by dragging and dropping.
