Add, modify, and delete drawing revisions

You can add revisions for your drawings in any one of your drawing logs. You can also modify existing revisions according to your needs, or delete unnecessary revisions.

Add a single drawing revision

To add multiple drawing revisions, see Add multiple drawings to a drawing log.

  1. On the right side of an open project management job, click Drawing Log.
  2. In the context menu, select the drawing log in which the drawing is stored.

    Note that the All Drawing Logs option opens a drawing log that lists all drawings that you have added, so you can add revisions to any drawing.

  3. In the drawing list, select the drawing for which you want to add a revision.
  4. At the bottom of the drawing log, click Add Revision.
  5. In the Drawing Revisions dialog box, click New.
  6. Type the revision number and a description of the revision.
  7. Type appropriate names in the Revised By and Checked By fields.
  8. Click the arrow on the right side of Date Revised and Date Received fields, and select dates in the calendars.
  9. Click the arrow on the right side of Date Checked field, and select a date in the calendar.
  10. Type a release number for the revision.
  11. Click Save to add the revision.

The new drawing revision is added to the revision list. You can view the details of all of the drawing's revisions by clicking Revision Details.

Note that because you did not attach a PDF file to the drawing revision, the File column says No. If a PDF file has been attached to the drawing revision, the File column has Yes in it, and you can double-click the drawing to view the attached PDF file.

The correct PDF file will automatically be attached to the revision when it is added to the default drawing folder (by default, C:\Users\Public\Documents\Tekla EPM\Drawing) in the correct job folder and revision folder.
