Work with model objects in Tekla Structures

When you model in Tekla Structures , you create and work with different types of model objects. In most cases, a model object represents a building object that will exist in the real building or structure, or that will be closely related to it. A model object can also be a modeling aid that represents information that is only relevant when you are creating the model. Model objects are either created in the model or imported to it.

Examples of model objects include:

Model objects may also be created by components.

You can modify the properties of many model objects by using the property pane. To resize and reshape model objects, use the direct modification handles.

The following modeling aids in can be used in the model:

You can combine model objects to bigger entities by creating assemblies , cast units , and pour units.
