Trimble introduced has introduced three new versions of its software for structural engineering, fabrication and construction teams: Tekla Structures 2018, Tekla Structural Designer 2018 and Tekla Tedds 2018. These solutions provide increased control and improved documentation through constructible BIM workflows for stakeholders in structural steel and precast concrete, including designers, detailers and fabricators, concrete contractors, general contractors and structural engineers.
“We develop software solutions that bring a growing synergy to our customers in their daily work,” said Paul Wallett, Regional Director, Trimble Solutions India and Middle East. “Trimble’s focus on advancing technology throughout the entire structural BIM workflow, from design to fabrication and construction, allows us to deliver the BIM tools that contribute to the transformation of the building and construction industry.”
Tekla Structures 2018 brings faster 3D modelling processes, more precise detailing, better control over changes and quicker production of drawings with less effort. The new version also supports point clouds.
Tekla Structural Designer 2018 delivers new features and enhancements focused on structural design workflow productivity. For example, the new rigorous non-linear concrete slab design feature automates loading simulation through construction to help save days of engineering design time. Design and analysis are combined into one simple and efficient model-based solution. Improved analysis options for both concrete and steel offer greater control and faster analysis. The new version also supports Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish annexes to the Eurocodes. A new link to ADAPT-Builder Platform offers engineers a more efficient post-tension concrete design workflow.
Tekla Tedds 2018 introduces a variety of new calculations that will vastly improve productivity for civil and structural engineers. The easy-to-use software offers a quality assured library of code compliant calculations that are visible for easy review and validation.
A growing number of construction professionals, governments and owners around the world are embracing BIM technologies and processes. Projects around the world, from housing and bridges to factories and skyscrapers, are using Trimble’s structural BIM solutions. Continuous development of Tekla BIM solutions demonstrates Trimble’s commitment to innovation in structural engineering, off-site prefabrication, and on-site efficiency.
