A Tekla Structures drawing consists of two types of basic elements:
A drawing layout defines the drawing size and the included tables, such as revision tables, title blocks, material lists, bills of material, general notes, key plans and DWG files. Tekla Structures has a range of predefined layouts, and you can also create layouts of your own. The tables included in your drawing are those included in the layout you have chosen to use.
Drawing views are views to the whole model, to a part of the model or to individual parts in the model. Views can show building objects from different directions (top, front, back, bottom) and cross sections. Drawing views act as containers for the building objects or areas in the model that you have selected to be included in the drawing.
Below is an example of the drawing layout and views in a workshop drawing.
