Customize the material catalog

The material catalog contains information on material types and grades. In the material catalog, materials are displayed in a hierarchical tree grouped according to their types. Each material type has material grades listed under them.

The following material types are available in Tekla Structures :
  • Steel

  • Concrete

  • Reinforcing bar

  • Timber

  • Miscellaneous

By default, the material catalog contains standard, environment-specific materials. You can add, modify, and delete material grades.

Tekla Structures stores the material information in the matdb.bin file.
