Defect number Development area Description
TSAC-5314 Concrete components

Precast found block (1028): The Union 3 parts option that connects the created found blocks is now working properly. The result in the model corresponds with the selected connection type option.

TSAC-5379 Concrete components

Concrete foundation (1030): The positioning of the second group of injection tubes and bars is now working properly.

TSAC-5388 Concrete components

Reinforced concrete stair (95): In rebar H, both parts in the secondary rebar shape now take the rebar attributes properly for each part.

TSAC-5548 Concrete components

Anchor (10): When creating a connection profile as a custom part, it is now correctly added a sub-assembly to a panel or column.

TSAC-2285 Steel components

Truss (S78): Previously, in some cases the bottom chord was created differently on the right and the left side. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-5721 Steel components

Two sided end plate (142): Previously, when filler plates were created, galvanizing holes were created in the last filler plate. This has now been fixed, and galvanizing holes are always created in end plates.

TTSD-37885 Import, export, interoperability

Trimble Connector: Measurement markups sometimes showed 1.0 millimeter short of the actual distance between the measurement points. Now the displayed measurement values are rounded correctly to the nearest integer.

TTSD-45047 Import, export, interoperability

IFC2x3 export: Now the dialog box remembers the previous Location by setting when the dialog box is closed and reopened.

TTSD-45724 Import, export, interoperability

Export 3D DWG: Previously, when you used GUID in the Layer name as functionality, the export transformed the GUID to an invalid format. This has now been fixed, and the GUID retains its original format.

TTSD-45791 Import, export, interoperability

Export drawings to DWG/DXF: The export now works more consistently with the different base point exporting options.

TTSD-45794 Import, export, interoperability

Base points with duplicate names no longer prevent the IFC export dialog box from opening. Additionally, you can now use the model diagnose to detect duplicate base point name issues.

TTSD-46028 Import, export, interoperability

Export drawings to DWG/DXF: Drawing hatches using invisible colors behave now better in the DWG export.

TTSD-46055 Import, export, interoperability

IFC4 export: The OBJECT_TYPE attribute is now supported properly by the IFC4 export.

TTSD-46218 Import, export, interoperability

IFC export: The boolean type can now be selected in Additional property sets.

TPLED-205, TPLED-258 Templates and reports

Previously, a CopyField function could give a wrong result when it was used in a value field with a conditional expression (if-then-else) in its formula. This has now been fixed.

TPLED-209 Templates and reports

It is now possible to have 32nd and 64th precision in templates, reports, marks and dimensions in imperial units.

TTSD-45281, TTSD-45320 Templates and reports

When the NextValue() and IsLast() functions were used together in a row rule, rows could sometimes be left out from the final output. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-45812 Templates and reports

Previously, after duplicate rows were combined, the GetFieldFormula() function did not give the correct result if the referenced value field was in the combined row (and had sum-action defined during combine). This has now been fixed.

REVISION rows cannot be defined on their own anymore. They need to be defined together with DRAWING row.

TTSD-46629 Templates and reports

Template editor: Output 0 as empty string did not work with imperial units when fractions were used. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-34421 Drawings

When specifying plot file names for the XS_​DRAWING_​PLOT_​FILE_​NAME advanced options, conditional text using "?" did not work for UDA and TPL fields. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-37118 Drawings

Document manager: Issuing general arrangement drawings in Document manager while the  drawing was open could cause offset lines to become skewed. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-44644 Drawings

Printing: The Print on multiple sheets option was not working correctly. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-44773 Drawings

Linking drawing views in a multidrawing failed when the source drawing already contained some linked views. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-45583 Drawings

Printing: Printing drawings with invalid data could cause Tekla Structures to crash. This has now been fixed so that if a drawing contains invalid data, the printing will stop at that point, and the drawing is labeled as incomplete.

TTSD-46042 Drawings

Printing: The Print Drawings dialog box did not respond correctly if you had not selected any drawings in Document Manager. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-46045 Drawings

Document manager: Previously, in certain cases, there was an exception in Document manager that occurred when Show changes from now on was used. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-46593 Drawings

Document manager: Previously, Document manager included the hidden internal DocumentId property in any searches, which resulted in unexpected search results. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-46033 Tekla Model Sharing

Tekla Model Sharing icons in the Quick Access Toolbar have been improved to better show the read in and write out arrows.

TTSD-32101 Modeling

Now, if a mesh name is found in the mesh standard file but with custom values, the name will be changed to Custom mesh whenever any mesh value is modified in the Property pane.

TTSD-42477 Modeling

Previously, connection component coordinate system sometimes flipped randomly in certain symmetrical cases, such as when connecting two parallel parts of the same length. Now, small numerical noise is ignored so that in symmetrical cases the component will be inserted to the same side consistently.

TTSD-45286 Modeling

Previously, Tekla Structures could sometimes crash when converting a single user model to a multi-user model. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-45657 Modeling

Previously, Tekla Structures would crash if the shape definition XML file had empty values, for example, in the BrepGUID field. Crashing is now prevented and errors are logged in these situations.
Diagnose model now detects these situations and reports them.

TTSD-45680 Modeling

Previously, there could be extreme slowness when calculating parametric profiles with deeply recursive parameter dependency. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-23878 Core

Now a new error message is shown if Tekla Structures cannot properly open and read the LoadRole.ini file. This error is typically caused by using incompatible Tekla Structures environment and Windows locale settings, for example, a Japan environment and Finnish locale.

TSAC-4803 Tools and components

Custom Component Dialog Editor settings are now saved in the current model folder. The options set are applied only to the current model instead of the Tekla Structures version as before.

TSAC-5565 Tools and components

Layout manager
When creating new names for layout points and layout lines with no names, the Layout manager does not add the default prefix to the name anymore. Previously, layout point and layout line names consisted of the default prefix followed by a number. Now the new name consists of numbers only.
Auto Naming a group now allows empty prefixes when creating new names for the layout points and layout lines in a group.

TTSD-46206 Tools and components

Previously, Tekla Structures was not responding in certain models when creating new system components. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-5567 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Two new options have been added to the option Export assemblies on the Embeds tab. The first option exports all sub-assembly parts as one object with continuous geometry, and the second one exports all sub-assembly parts as one object with distinct geometry of each part.

Export continuous geometry
Export distinct geometry
TSAC-5576 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

EliPLAN export (68): User is now notified via log when the net area calculation fails.

TSAC-5582 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): You can now specify more precisely how the mountpart name is exported by using the new options in the Mountpart name field on the MOUNTPART block data tab: UDA, Text[Template]#Counter, Template, and User-defined text.

TSAC-5617 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Using the product types Thermo wall (1st stage) and Thermo wall (2nd stage) in the object UDAs will now produce an export file with a separate HEADER block for each of the two stages of the thermal wall, similarly as with double walls.

TSAC-5680 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): On the MOUNPART block data tab, you can now specify the installation type of the embed by defining a UDA, class, name or user-defined text. Additionally, you can now specify a different mountpart name source for the insulation or cutpart mountparts.

TSAC-5685 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)


Export Unitechnik (79): The placement logic of the geometry detailing strip parts has been improved, and the parts are now added to the correct shell of the double walls. 

TSAC-5697 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Meshes collected from rebar groups that are set to be exported as embeds now have a rectangular bounding box geometry. Also reinforcement with a cage UDA specified to be exported as embed by name on the Embeds tab is now exported with a cage bounding box.
