Tekla upgrades BIM software
Manama, March 19, 2012
Tekla, a top digital information modeling company, has released a new version of its building information modeling (BIM) software with improved viewing, more intuitive modeling, and streamlined project management tools.
Tekla Structures 18 offers architects, fabricators, contractors, designers and engineers benefits from improved access to more constructable, accurate and complete 3D model data, a statement said.
With the new version, workflow is more efficient and intuitive than before, which reduces lead times in modeling, it added.
The result is increased overall design productivity. Easy modeling and improved intuitiveness in drawing editing ensure that what you see is what you get. Improved automation minimizes user errors and need for troubleshooting.
Practical examples of the assets of the improved workflow are better connectivity to machinery and export functions.
It enables a user to include grids, customize information, and export reinforcements in a light or detailed way when exporting a model to IFC format, with enhanced DSTV connectivity to CNC machinery and precast machinery, according to the statement.
“Faster and smoother modeling gives our customers competitive advantage. Added to the assets of BIM, like saving time and money during the bidding process and more manageable construction projects, our new software release will help our customers to raise their project profit margins,” said Risto Räty, executive vice president of Tekla Corporation.
Tekla Structures BIM software, launched in 2004, is used by construction professionals around the world to model, detail, fabricate and build buildings, bridges, sports complexes, and other structures.
It works seamlessly with Tekla BIMsight, the free tool for construction project collaboration, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
