Add grade overrides

Grade overrides allow Tekla EPM to assign a specific unit weight for a particular dimension. Grade overrides should only be used for shapes that do not have linear unit weights, such as stainless steel.


When you add a grade override, the cost to discount is still applied to the job using the original length of the dimension.

  1. In the shape list in the Shape / Grade / Size Maintenance dialog box, select a shape.
  2. Open the Dimensions tab.
  3. In the Dimension list, select a dimension.
  4. Open the Grade Overrides tab on the right side of the dialog box.
  5. Click Add.
  6. In the Grade list of the Grade Override dialog box, select a grade.
  7. In the Override Unit Weight, type a weight.
  8. Click Save.

The new grade override is added to the material database and shown in the list on the Grade Overrides tab.
