1. General Settings

1.1 Environment installation and new file path

Environment installer is downloaded same way as on previous versions but it now contains .tsep installers. Whole environment is packed into smaller role packages that contain smaller file sets. When setting up the installing, user can decide whether the environment .tsep packages are installed immediately or at the first startup of Tekla Structures.

The old file path for environment (C:\ProgramData\Tekla Structures\2018i\Environments\Finland) is now changed to C:\ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\2019.0\Environments\Finland. New numbering practice (2019.0 and 2019.1 vs. 2018 and 2018i) is set to all version folders.

1.2 New environment folder structure

Environment folder has new sub-folder system and the folders are named according to the roles. The file paths to each role-specific folder are defined in env_Finland.ini as XS_GENERAL, XS_CONTRACTOR, XS_ENGINEERING, XS_PRECAST, XS_PRECASTFI, XS_PRECASTEN, XS_STEEL, XS_STEELFI and XS_STEELEN. A subset of the folders are then set according to the selected role's role.ini file as XS_SYSTEM directory. More information Finland .ini files release notes.

1.3 Custom properties

Custom property .dll files were removed from Finland environment folder since they are currently saved in \Environments\common\extensions\custom\properties\ when Finland environment is installed.

1.4 Applications & Components catalog and Start Model Concrete update

Applications & Components catalog and the model template Start Model Concrete were updated for version 2019.

Some custom components of Start Model Concrete didn't respond to changing of values in component dialog. The components were fixed in Service Pack 2, so models started with SP2 or later, using Start Models Concrete, have "healthy" custom components. Unfortunately the fix can't repair models started with Final or SP1-version, but you can export and import the fixed components from a new model.

1.5 Modeling


Selection filters Materiaali - Betoni, Materiaali - Betonielementit, Materiaali, Paikallavalu betoni, Materiaali - Puu and Materiaali - Teräs had gone missing from Finland environment. These filters are used in e.g. the example settings for DWG/DXF export "FIN-RAK-asetukset". The filters will be included again in Service Pack 4.

1.6 Templates & Reports


Previously the fire class of an assembly wasn't displayed on any default templates of assembly drawings. The UDA could be set to the part, assembly or drawing, but it wouldn't be visible from either of the locations. Fire class was added to A_Fabrication.tpl on Service Pack 2.

1.7 Drawings

BEC2012 Kloonimalli master drawings stopped working on TS2019, but a fix for the issue was released on Service Pack 2.

Example settings "FIN-RAK-asetukset" for drawing DWG/DXF export were missing from TS2019, but they will be returned on Service Pack 4.
