Background

We are updating Trimble Identity with additional features and improved security. If you are using a version older than Tekla Structural Designer 2021, some product features may no longer work after December 2021.

Features that require Trimble Identity sign-in are:

  • Online Side Pane
  • Trimble Connect Integration
  • In-product Support Tool

All other product features can be used without signing in. You can use your Trimble Identity account in a web browser with our online services just like before, including Tekla Warehouse and Trimble Connect.

If you rely on any of the features listed above we recommend that you update to Tekla Structural Designer 2021 as soon as possible. This will allow you to continue signing in when we phase out the previous-generation of Trimble Identity. 

Take note of the following:

  • We recommend starting all new projects with Tekla Structural Designer 2021.
  • Tekla products have an extended schedule for this change. If you are using other Trimble software, you may need to upgrade those products by August 30th. Refer to your product-specific support site for more details.
