Create a new model

Create a separate model for each Tekla Structures project. Each model is stored in its own folder under the TeklaStructuresModels folder.

  1. On the File  menu, click New.
  2. In the Name box, enter a name for the new model.

    Do not use special characters ( / \ ; : | ). We recommend that you try to decide on a permanent name at this point. The name of the model can be changed afterwards, but it involves changing several file names.

  3. Define where to save the new model.

    By default, the model is saved in the TeklaStructuresModels folder that was created during installation. You can change the default folder by clicking Browse. You can also select a recently used folder from the Save in list.

  4. If you want to use a model template , select one.
  5. Under Type , define whether to run Tekla Structures in single-user or multi-user mode.
    • Single-user: the model will be used by one person at a time.

    • Multi-user: the model is stored on a server and may be used by several people simultaneously. Enter the name of the server in the Server box.

  6. Click Create.

    Tekla Structures creates the model and opens the default model view. The contents of the model view may differ based on the model template you chose in step 4.
