Support for new Trimble Identity

This service pack makes Tekla Structures compatible with the new and improved Trimble Identity. This update allows you to continue using features that require a login.

For more information on the improvements to Trimble Identity, see Sign-in changes in Tekla products and services. For Tekla Structures specific information with the timeline of these changes, see Sign-in changes in Tekla Structures.


Defect number Development area Description
TSAC-5406 Concrete components

Sandwich and double wall: On the UDA tab, you can now select the shell for each user-defined attribute (UDA) that you define. This allows you to set more UDAs for a certain shell, if needed.

TSAC-5529 Concrete components

Embedded anchors (8): Previously, creating certain geometries on the Thickening tab could cause a crash. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-5503 Steel components

Brace corner simple (49): Previously, bolts were rotated when the secondary parts were twin profiles. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-5542 Steel components

Stairs (S71): Previously, steps chamfers were not created correctly, when you defined some of the step size values as zero. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-5563 Steel components

Tube gusset (20): Previously, brace connection stiffeners were not created on both sides of secondary parts number 2-10. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-44639 Import, export, interoperability

IFC object conversion: The IFC object conversion now converts solid model presentation objects.

TTSD-44982 Import, export, interoperability

IFC object conversion: The failing column handle offset in the B-rep to extrusion conversion has been fixed.

TTSD-45287 Import, export, interoperability

IFC4 export: The IFC4 export file name with a dot removed the rest of the file name. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-45040 Templates and reports

Template Editor: Depending on the selection order of objects, the copyfield valuefield function could give different results. This has now been fixed.

TEX-8841 Drawings

Dimensioning center of gravity (COG): In Symbol Options, you can now change the COG symbol. To do this, in Symbol Number, click Select, and select another symbol.

TTSD-26968 Drawings

Reference object hidden lines were displayed in drawings even though they were disabled when the line type and color of the lines matched the properties of the visible lines. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-38039 Drawings

Grid dimensions did not work correctly if a drawing filter was applied. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-41766 Drawings

Document Manager: Document Manager previously closed during a shared model read-in, because there were occasional conflicts between file watchers in Document Manager and the file updating process. Now, these conflicts are prevented, and Document Manager remains open during the read-in process.

TTSD-42531 Drawings

Snapping to center lines now works identically in drawing and modeling modes: Center lines are snapped to when the Snap to geometry lines/points switch is enabled. Center lines are no longer snapped to in drawings when the Snap to reference lines/points switch is enabled.

TTSD-43854 Drawings

Sometimes, the part to grid dimensioning in GA drawings did not work correctly. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-44650 Drawings

Embedded steel part bolts were drawn to incorrect layers in drawings. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-45551 Drawings

Layout editor: Moving keyplans in drawing layouts now works more reliably.

TTSD-13610 Tekla Model Sharing

Previously, you sometimes could not reserve the next write out directly after joining a model, but had to read in a packet first. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-44842 Reinforcement

Multi-user: Previously, modifying and saving drawings in multi-user models could sometimes detach rebars from their parent parts and flag their numbering as out-of-date. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-27680 Modeling

Previously, in certain situations, bent plates similar in Tekla Structures 2018 were getting different numbers in later Tekla Structures versions. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-43364 Modeling

Previously, in some rare situations, modifying custom components could create empty assemblies to the model, causing problems in numbering, for example. This has now been fixed. You can remove the existing empty assemblies from the model with the Repair model command.

TTSD-43596 Modeling

Previously, the applied or saved prefix for the steel item part numbering series was not used, but instead the prefix defaulted to the value P. This has now been fixed and the applied and saved values work correctly.

TTSD-43842 Modeling

In certain cases, bent plates created in the Tekla Structures 2018 version were broken in newer Tekla Structures versions. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-44069 Modeling

Previously, when the Cut object with line command was used, no ortho symbols were shown irrespective of the cursor position. This now been fixed.

TTSD-44822 Modeling

Clash checking could previously crash Tekla Structures in some situations. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-45154 Modeling


In some cases, solids could be broken in cut bent plates, for example. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-45156 Modeling

In the US environment, shape names that only consisted of numerical characters were unintentionally converted to imperial units. This affected filtering in the Object Group dialog box and labels in the 3D views. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-45223 Modeling

When the Fast representation was used for parts, some pour object faces were not shown in pour views. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-45470 Modeling

Previously, huge fittings could be created when work planes were used. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-5605 Tools and components

Ultrazed file transfer (93) now identifies side rail support struts and heavy duty side rail struts that have been defined without cleats. These manually created situations will now be flagged as requiring a drawing for Hadley Industries to produce.

TSAC-5378 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): You can now automatically recognize certain cut types as mountparts using the new option, Cuts as mountparts, on the TS configuration tab. Select the cut type: Designated only, All, Recesses, Within contour, or Recesses within.

TSAC-5475 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export ELiPLAN file (68): You can now specify a UDA for unit conversion on the Data settings tab. When a valid unit is specified in this UDA, then it is used for the unit conversion instead of the default unit, or the unit defined in the conversion file.

TSAC-5484 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export ELiPLAN file (68): You can now specify the material code using the new setting, Material code, on the Data content tab. The options are Name, Assembly prefix, Material, Profile, UDA, Text[TEMPLATE], and Template.

TSAC-5490 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

BVBS export: When you select One file per each cast unit and use Assembly template property, the export will now warn if the export results in duplicate file names. The export will still continue.

TSAC-5543 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

BVBS Export: The file naming template by [Assembly template] now works with the PROJECT.NUMBER property.

TSAC-5566 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export ELiPLAN file (68): Exported files are now written with UTF-8 encoding.

TSAC-5580 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Previously, when using a special assemblies definition file, the optional setting for having a custom logic for embed height coordinate was not working. This has been fixed, and now a selection of mountparts can be set to export at bottom of the pallet, at the embed bottom level, or at the embed center-of-gravity level.

TSAC-5590 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Previously, when protruding cutouts were excluded from the export, they extended the contour incorrectly. This has now been fixed.
