When you start Tekla Structural Designer for the first time, you are asked to choose a country or region. Based on your selection various region specific settings such as design codes, units and default section sizes are configured. These settings, which can be changed to meet your company requirements, are applied when you start each new project.
A dialog box where you choose your settings appears.
You can check or change the settings that get applied to new projects at any time.
A Structure tree is displayed in the Project Workspace.
The Properties window displays the Structure properties.
The Properties window changes to display Levels properties - at this point there is only only level in the model.
Check or change model settings in your project (see below).
Try setting out some grid lines in the St. Base (Base) 2D view.
Next, double-click Levels in the Structure tree to create some levels.
With grids in place and levels established, you can then open views of the other levels.
You can check or change the model settings in the current project at any time.
The Model Settings dialog opens, displaying the model settings that have been copied in to your project from the active settings set.
