Export a transmittal

You can export a transmittal and the drawings attached to it to the selected folder directly from Tekla PowerFab. This is useful especially when the number and size of the drawings attached to the transmittal are too large to be sent by email.

  1. In the Transmittal dialog box, select the transmittals that you want to export.

    To select multiple items, hold down Ctrl.

    To select a range of subsequent items, hold down Shift.

  2. Click the Transmittal ribbon tab.
  3. On the menu, select Export Selected Transmittal.

    The Export Transmittal dialog box opens.

  4. On the Report Settings tab, define the following properties:



    Show Company Logo (If Exists)

    When selected, your company logo is visible in the transmittal.

    Combine Drawings

    When selected, consecutive drawing numbers are combined, so that the drawing numbers are displayed as 1–3, instead of 1, 2, 3.

  5. On the Export Settings tab, do the following:
    1. To gather and compress attachments and the transmittal into a ZIP file, select Zip Files.
    2. To select the export directory, click the ellipsis button (...) and click Select Folder.

      You can also create a new folder for the files.

    3. To open the folder with the exported files on completing the export, select Open Folder.
  6. Click Export.

The transmittal and the drawings are exported to the folder you selected.
