Add grade redirections
Grade redirections allow Tekla PowerFab to recognize material grades that are imported to Tekla PowerFab with names that Tekla PowerFab does not initially recognize. When you use grade redirections, the imported material grades are redirected to the appropriate material grades. For example, if an item to be imported has the grade A500-GR.B, adding a redirection allows Tekla PowerFab to recognize the grade and use the A500 grade from the material database.
