Add alternate dimensions

If a dimension in a bill of materials that you want to import has a different description than in Tekla EPM, problems might occur when importing the file. Adding alternate dimensions enables Tekla EPM to cross-reference to the same dimension, and that way, identify the dimension.

  1. In the shape list in the Shape / Grade / Size Maintenance dialog box, select the shape.
  2. Open the Dimensions tab.
  3. In the Dimension list, select a dimension.
  4. Open the Alternates tab.
  5. Below the existing alternate dimensions, click Add.
  6. Type the description that will cross-reference to the selected dimension.
  7. Click OK.

The new alternate dimension is added to the material database and shown in the Dimension Alternate list.
