Files from all previous versions can be opened in this release however, note that, once saved, they cannot then be opened in a previous release.

  • Tekla Structures - if you wish to integrate with Tekla Structures you should install both this release and Tekla Structures 2024 for optimum performance.

  • Tekla Tedds - for integrated design using Tekla Tedds you should install the 2024 release for Tekla Tedds.

  • Autodesk Revit© - the Tekla Structural Designer Integrator for Autodesk Revit© 2023 was released in December 2022. For more information about this see the Tekla Structural Designer Integrator for Autodesk Revit 2023© Release Notes. The installation for this is available in Tekla Downloads. If you are now using Autodesk Revit© 2023, you can install this to perform BIM integration with Tekla Structural Designer.

    • The other currently supported Revit© versions are: 2020 (Integrator version 6.03), 2021 (Integrator version 7.02) and 2022 (Integrator version 8.0). For more information about these see the Tekla Structural Designer Integrator June 2021 updates page. If you are performing BIM integration with any of these previous Revit© versions, we recommend you install the latest version of the associated Integrator.


Some Databases are updated in this release. For an existing installation of a previous release, your local Databases will automatically be updated (it is no longer necessary to do this manually via Home > Materials). This process works as follows:

  • Providing all databases can be updated automatically without user intervention, when this release is first run then the updates are applied and a message is displayed stating "updating to latest database versions". On successful completion the message closes and the program will open.
