2020 SP2: New features and improvements

Tekla Structures 2020 SP2 contains useful improvements in drawing cloning, rebar pull-out pictures, rebar dimension mark properties, components, IFC exports, and data synchronization between shared models and Trimble Connect project and firm folders.

New dialog box for rebar dimension mark properties

Rebar dimension mark properties now have their own dialog box in Tekla Structures. You can save the settings you make in the Rebar dimension mark properties dialog box as *.rdim settings files. Having separate dialog boxes and settings files makes it easier to customize your rebar dimension properties, and still leave your other dimension properties unaffected.

  • To open the Rebar dimension mark properties dialog box, open the drawing, go to the Drawing tab and click Properties > Rebar dimension mark.

Note that the Rebar tab in the Dimension Properties dialog box has been moved to the new Rebar dimension mark properties dialog box.

For more information, see:

Add dimensions to reinforcement

Rebar dimension mark properties

For administrators

Only the settings saved in *.rdim settings files are shown in the Rebar dimension mark properties dialog box. If you have saved rebar dimension mark settings in .dim settings files, rename the file extension to .rdim.

The standard.rdim settings file is installed with the Tekla Structures Common environment.

The following *.rdim settings files are installed with the Tekla Structures 2020 SP2 Default environment:
  • rebar_dimension_line.rdim

  • rebar_dimension_mark.rdim

  • rebar_tagged_dimension_mark.rdim

Note that:
  • The macros that have been designed to work with the Dimension Properties dialog box no longer work, unless you edit the macros to call the Rebar dimension mark properties dialog box.

  • The Filter drawing view-level dimensioning method does not allow creating rebar dimension marks, so *.rdim settings files are not shown in the user interface of this plugin.

  • On the Reinforcement dimensions tab of the view-level Dimensioning Properties dialog box, the previously specified settings file might no longer be found, if the settings file is in the *.dim format. Instead, the standard.rdim settings file is shown if the file is available in the selected environment. However, the standard.rdim will only be used if you save the view-level settings. If the view-level settings are not saved, the internal hardcoded defaults are used.

TTSD-35623, TTSD-37506

More reliable cloning

  • When XS_DRAWING_CLONING_IGNORE_CHECK is set to TRUE, Tekla Structures can now clone a drawing with a selected part that has the same position number. However, if you have selected several parts with the same position number, only one cloned drawing is created for that position.


New presentation options for drawing rebar pull-out pictures

  • The Rebar pull-out picture and marking application has a new section for Presentation options with two new features on the Rebar tab.

    Exaggeration has been added to exaggerate a shape when the reinforcement bar has an overlap in the second visualization. This setting works in a way similar to the pull-out pictures in rebar marks.

    Shorten bars longer than allows you to set a maximum output length for long bars. If the boundary of the shape exceeds the maximum length, the pull-out picture is shortened with cut lines. This setting is meant to be used with straight bars and bars with hooks.


Export improvements

The 3D DWG and 3D DGN v8 exports, and the Export to Revit (.rvt) Geometry extension in Tekla Warehouse, now allow you to export selected parts in an assembly when you use the Selected parts option. If you do not select a part but an assembly, the highest level of assembly parts will be included in the export.

Previously, all parts were exported in the assembly to which the selected parts belonged.


Tekla Model Sharing improvements

If you use a Trimble Connect folder as the project or firm folder, you can now see the progress of the data synchronization from the project or firm folder to the local model. You can also cancel the data synchronization, if needed.


Improvements in components

Concrete components

  • Rectangular column reinforcement (83)

    There are two new features on the Bar ends tab.

    A new option has been added to allow the bar ends of the corner bars to be created in a 45º angle. The images of the options are updated to visualize the difference between the horizontal extension and cranking options.

    The second new feature helps you to output 2-dimensional bars easier. A new option, Align cranking, has been added to the Bar ends tab. When set to Yes, the cranking of the corner bars is automatically aligned to the horizontal extension direction.


  • Edge and corner reinforcement (62)

    You can now create secondary edge bars with offset on the Edge bars tab.


  • Hollowcore reinforcement strands (60)

    There are two improvements.

    First, you can now add additional grids for strand patterns in the .dat file. The new grids can be assigned to a strand pattern by adding the stand pattern name after the grid, for example, [Profile-name]_GRID_[Strand-pattern].

    Second, the Pull value boxes on the Strand pattern tab are now enabled when the distances are defined in an external file, so you can overwrite the pull of a strand. If the pull value is empty, the values in the .dat file are used.


Steel components

  • Auto bolt

    You can now select No hole as the Hole type when using the Auto bolt component.


  • U.S. Base plate connection (71)

    On the Parts tab, you can now separately define the properties for stiffeners 3, 6 and stiffeners 7, 8.



Defect number Development area Description
TSAC-2899 Concrete components Wall panel reinforcement now creates meshes with the correct catalog name. Previously, the catalog name of meshes created by the tool was always 'custom mesh'.
TSAC-3396 Concrete components Hollowcore reinforcement strands (60) has two improvements:

In the .dat file, it is now possible to add additional grids for strand patterns. The new grids can be assigned to a strand pattern by adding the stand pattern name after the grid, for example, Profile-name'_GRID_'Strand-pattern'.
Also, the Pull value boxes on the Strand pattern tab are now enabled when the distances are defined by an external file. It is now possible to overwrite the pull of a strand. If the pull value is empty, the pull values of the .dat file are used.
TSAC-3652 Concrete components Embedded anchors (8), Lifting anchor (80): The components now properly create C++ custom parts and take their attribute files into account. .Net components are not yet supported.
TSAC-3920 Concrete components Braced girder creation (88) (89): For sidebars (bar C) created as steel rods, the bending radius is now applied properly.
TSAC-4041 Concrete components Braced girder (88): Previously, Tekla Structures could stop working when creating braced girders on slabs with openings. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4095 Concrete components Round column reinforcement (82): Hooks are now created correctly both at the top and the bottom when the creation method of the main bars is set to single rebars.
TSAC-4108 Concrete components Corbels and recesses (82): The rotation value is now correctly displayed in decimal. Previously, the units were incorrectly converted when imperial units were in place.
TSAC-4131 Concrete components Starter bars for pillar (86), Starter bars for footing (87): Rebars are now created as single bars instead of one bar rebar groups.
TSAC-4156 Concrete components Embedded anchors (8): Custom component creation settings now have a new option to check the top in form face of the cast unit and to adapt the direction of custom components based on this setting.
TSAC-4173 Concrete components Reinforcement mesh array in area (89): The cover thickness of the created meshes is now applied properly for all types of mesh area perimeters.
TSAC-4188 Concrete components Rectangular concrete reinforcement (83): Intermediate links were incorrectly created when the disabled stirrup sizes had certain values. This happened when the stirrups were created as one rebar group. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4189 Concrete components Corbel reinforcement (81): The component now reinforces the console on each side of the column, regardless of the column rotation.
TSAC-4277 Concrete components Embedded anchors (8): The warning message of missing materials is no longer showed through a Windows message box. Instead, it is printed in the Windows console.
Another improvement is that only the parts that determine the COG (center of gravity) are checked for valid materials.
You can select the parts that determine the COG on the Placement tab, with the option: Selected part, Assembly, or Assembly without steel parts
TSAC-4283 Concrete components Reinforced concrete stair (95): There are improvements on the Anti-skid tab.
  • You can now define the material, name and class separately for the 1st bottom anti-skid and the last top anti-skid.
  • You can now use the Creation anti-skid setting to define whether anti-skid is created. The first bottom anti-skid and the last top anti-skid do not have separate creation settings anymore.
TSAC-4292 Concrete components Floor layout: Previously, the Floor layout property strip dialog box did not open if the floor layout UDA definitions contained any option-type UDAs. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-1901 Steel components Unfold surface (21): Bolts are now created in the correct position when the final unfolded plate is created as a union of the unfolded plates.
TSAC-1920 Steel components Pipe doubler plate: Previously, the component created chamfers to the first and last point of the plate, which caused problems in the polybeam. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-2052 Steel components Metsec Cold rolled sleeve joint (102): The Force stay holes option has been updated to only create a singular hole. Previously, it created a pair of holes.
TSAC-2383 Steel components Cast-in plate (1069): You can now delete studs or anchors using the Delete option on the Studs/Anchors tab.
TSAC-2723 Steel components Cap plate detail: When switching off all check boxes in the component dialog box, the Class check box on the Parts tab is now also switched off.  
TSAC-3383 Steel components Shear plate simple (146): Previously, the bolt option Below did not have its reference distance to the lowest bolt of the bolt group. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-3960 Steel components Stair base detail (1043): It is now possible to specify the bolt cut length on the Pbolts and Sbolts tabs.
TSAC-3977 Steel components Cage ladder (S60): You can now define the rotation of the rail bars on the Parameters tab. You can also define the vertical and horizontal offset of bottom supports on the Supports tab.
TSAC-4030 Steel components Stairs (S71): Previously, bottom stringers were created with incorrect length when horizontal offset of steps was specified. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4049 Steel components Seating with dowel (75), Two sided seating with dowel (76), Seating with dowel to flange (77), Two sides seating with dowel to flange (78): The components now properly create C++ custom parts and take their attribute files into account. .Net components are not yet supported.
TSAC-4083 Steel components Simple clip angle (31), Two side clip angle (33): Previously, some value was assigned to the bolt tolerance when it was not defined in the component dialog box. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4176 Steel components Cage ladder (S60): Previously, when the ladder width was greater than the cage radius, the ladder creation was not working. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4179 Steel components Two sided end plate (142) & End plate (144): Previously, the horizontal offset of bolts also affected the position of galvanizing holes. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4208 Steel components Splice connection (77): Previously, the flange bolts were not correctly arranged in staggered positions. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4210 Steel components U.S. Base plate (1047): Anchor rods are now created correctly when a composite of welded parts is used as the input part of the component.
TSAC-4211 Steel components Bent plate (151): You can now define the Finish property for the backing bar.
TSAC-4222 Steel components Two sided end plate (143): Previously, the extra length of box primary bottom bolts was incorrect. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4273 Steel components Partial stiff end plate (65): Previously, when the bolt spacing was specified asymmetrically, the holes in the shim plates were created incorrectly. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4290 Steel components Seating cap (37): Now the stiffeners are not created when you do not enter any value for the stiffener thickness. Previously, you had to enter 0 as the thickness to not create stiffeners.
TSAC-4296 Steel components Welded beam to beam (123): You can now specify on the Parameters tab whether the flange slope ratio is used in notch cuts.
TSAC-4306 Steel components Base plate (1042): Previously, when you specified to create anchor rods as custom components and did not define the thickness of the cast plate, the component was not created. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4324 Steel components Welded column with stiffeners (128): Previously, the gaps between the stiffeners and main part flanges were not applied correctly. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4343 Steel components H&V Shear plate (64): Previously, some random text was assigned as the plate Finish property. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4447 Steel components Kingspan file transfer once again contains all required cleat data.

TSAC-4380 Import, export, interoperability Export Unitechnik (79): Previously, the Tekla Structures version option for the File creator (UT 6.0) setting was not working correctly. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-19700 Import, export, interoperability

The value of the user-defined attribute SDNF_MEMBER_NUMBER is no longer copied with the related part, so the resulting identifier is now unique. Note that it is still important that only one user in the model performs the SDNF export, so that you can prevent two objects from getting the same identifier.

TTSD-34498 Import, export, interoperability IFC2x3 export: You can now export all project properties as property set properties with IFC2x3 export.
TTSD-34978 Import, export, interoperability Point clouds: The point cloud functionality had issue with special characters like "ß". This has now been fixed.
TTSD-35407 Import, export, interoperability DWG export: Some relative image paths did not work correctly in drawing DWG export, now they do.
TTSD-36197 Import, export, interoperability When you detect changes between IFC reference model versions, Tekla Structures now attempts to find profile information for Brep objects from the related data.
TTSD-36205 Import, export, interoperability Previously in some cases, the rebar sets in slab patches were positioned above the relevant slabs. This has now been fixed, so that the rebar sets are now positioned inside the slabs.
TTSD-36229 Import, export, interoperability Previously, if you excluded a model from Trimble Connect collaboration, and then attached the model to another Trimble Connect project, all reference models could not be uploaded to Trimble Connect. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-36230 Import, export, interoperability Previously, modifying the properties of a rotated reference model could reset the rotation to zero. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-36311 Import, export, interoperability IFC 2x3 exports: If you had selected to export full model, assemblies, and rebars, and used CoordinationView 1.0 or 2.0, the export exported rebar set group rebars without thickness. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-36563 Import, export, interoperability IFC2x3 export: When you export a bolt hole, the bolt axis is not exported anymore.
TTSD-36623 Import, export, interoperability Objects are now imported from locked reference models when you refresh the reference models, provided that the XS_REFRESH_ALSO_LOCKED_REFERENCE_MODELS advanced option is set to TRUE. In addition, Hole Reservation Manager now updates voids in locked reference models correctly.
TTSD-36956 Import, export, interoperability IFC reference model assembly selection sometimes selected too much. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-37030 Import, export, interoperability Drawing DWG export: Export rules with rebar set object filtering rules work better now.
TTSD-37037 Import, export, interoperability Trimble Connector no longer consumes a Trimble Connect Business Premium license. Previously, a Trimble Connect Business Premium license was consumed, even though using Trimble Connector does not require this type of a licence. This prevented the use of the same license seat in Trimble Connect, so the user could not access the Trimble Connect features that were available for Business Premium users.
TTSD-37078 Import, export, interoperability Export to IFC2x3: When exporting bolt holes, the bolt axes are not exported anymore.
TTSD-37226 Import, export, interoperability When you inquire an object in an overlay model, the object name is now shown in the Inquire dialog box.
TTSD-37406 Import, export, interoperability You can now convert IFC objects in ELITECAD models to Tekla Structures native objects.
TPLED-165 Templates and reports Template library now gives more descriptive conversion warning messages that show the component name and template filename.
TPLED-173 Templates and reports Template Editor: Previously, when the row sort type of a template was set to None, the row order could sometimes change. This has now been fixed. 
TTSD-36176 Templates and reports Some revision table styles were not working. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-36696 Templates and reports Template Editor no longer crashes when you are dragging several lines and cancel by pressing the Esc key.

TSAC-4080 Drawings Automated grid dimensioning in cast unit and assembly drawings now only places dimensions on grid lines where objects are placed.
TSAC-4158 Drawings Automatic dimensioning methods Filter, Hole, etc. now place the dimension start and end points correctly also in the case that the Measure from setting is defined to an object inside a sub-assembly.
TSAC-4165 Drawings Previously, interrupting the Pattern line command before creating a line in a drawing resulted in an error message. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4191 Drawings Rebar group marking:  Rebar group marking now multiplies the number of rebar sets correctly in the marks.
TTSD-26872 Drawings Section marks disappeared when you moved a section view to another drawing. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-30197 Drawings A crash could occur when you tried to write and then open a PDF file with an invalid file name. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-30350 Drawings Holding down Shift and dragging connection marks no longer moves the leader line start point to the view origin.
TTSD-31089 Drawings Previously, when you created a new multi-drawing, the merged reinforcement mesh marks could not show single mark content. This has now been fixed. However, existing multi-drawings created before this fix still show erroneous marks when opened in TS2019 or newer. You can fix the marks by splitting the erroneous merged marks and merging the single marks again.
TTSD-32203 Drawings In the Finland environment, saving standard print settings resulted in two standard entries in the settings file list. This has now been fixed by renaming the incorrectly named standard.PdfPrintOptions.xml settings file in the Finland environment to PdfPrintOptions.xml.
TTSD-33536 Drawings Previously, user-defined bolt symbols were not shown correctly in different environments, because the default symbol file was used in all environments. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-34018 Drawings Drawing objects no longer change place in rotated views, when a drawing is opened.
TTSD-34102 Drawings Tekla Structures could hang while opening a model if files were being modified in the folders tracked by Document manager. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-34134 Drawings Now when you add a polygon with a fill in a drawing, Tekla Structures will not start showing the fill before the polygon has at least three points.
TTSD-34615 Drawings Empty rows are no longer shown in the dimension associativity rule list.
TTSD-34642 Drawings

NUMBER_IN_DRAWING was not updated correctly in an associative note due to rebar set bars in the group type 'unknown'. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-34919 Drawings In single-part, cast unit and assembly drawings, Tekla Structures sometimes incorrectly combined end views so that only one of them was visible, and both had an A symbol. This happened only in view-specific dimensioning if you had selected something else than Integrated dimensioning. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-34938 Drawings Perpendicular leader lines for marks in drawings now retain their shape when you drag them while holding down the Shift key.
TTSD-35156 Drawings Previously, exporting multiple drawings in a row could sometimes crash Tekla Structures. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-35568 Drawings Previously in some environments, after you moved a table in Layout editor, you could not select the table again by clicking it. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-36802 Drawings Sometimes you got duplicate marks to parts when adding marks manually through the context menu. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-36857 Drawings When you open Drawing layout editor and no layouts are available, Tekla Structures now prompts you to create a new layout.
TTSD-37124 Drawings Previously in some cases, manually created section or detail views were added in wrong positions. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-37374 Drawings Previously, hatches were not shown for circles in drawings. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-37801 Drawings Dragging table handles in Layout editor now works more reliably.
TTSD-35034 Tekla Model Sharing Previously in some cases, when a shared model was diagnosed and obsolete object modification rows were found, using the Repair model command did not solve the issue. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-35593 Tekla Model Sharing You can now cancel synchronizing files from a Trimble Connect project or firm folder to the local model.
TTSD-36755 Tekla Model Sharing Previously, Tekla Structures occasionally crashed when you converted a multi-user model to a single-user model. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-36858, TTSD-35593 Tekla Model Sharing When you synchronize the local model data from a firm or project folder in a Trimble Connect project, you can now see the progress of the synchronization.
TTSD-36135 Reinforcement Previously, in IFC 2x3 Export, rebar set groups with group type 'unknown' were exported as a single group with a single GUID, when they should have been exported as individual bars with individual GUIDs. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-1286 Modeling Additional depth options for the Steel Sections Zeds and Channels have been added. New flat-faced eaves beams have also been added. The connections have been updated to work with these new profiles and the associated accessories have also been included.
TSAC-3975 Modeling In the Radial array tool, the box for defining spaces between the copies now adjusts to the size of the dialog box.
TSAC-4127 Modeling Linear array tool: When copying objects, if you do not enter the number of copies, Linear array tool now takes the number of copies from the defined space distances between the objects. 
TSAC-4266 Modeling

In the Radial array tool, if the box for defining the number of angles or distances is empty, the tool now takes the number of copies from the space between copies box. 

Radial array tool number of copies SP image.png

TTSD-25515 Modeling When using the Ortho tool, the snap symbol is now again shown as the snap to any position symbol.
TTSD-30409 Modeling The XS_LINE_WIDTH advanced option is not in use anymore, and it has been removed from the Advanced options dialog box.
TTSD-34485 Modeling Previously, with specific cut lengths, bolt lengths could be different in Tekla Structures and when exporting to IFC. This has now been fixed. 
TTSD-35345 Modeling Trimble Connect Visualizer: Previously, if you mapped a Tekla Structures material to a fixed Trimble Connect Visualizer material, such as glass, Tekla Structures warned you about duplicate material. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-35585 Modeling Sometimes, if pours were enabled in a model (XS_ENABLE_POUR_MANAGEMENT was set to TRUE), broken solids caused Tekla Structures to crash when opening the model. This has now been fixed so that Tekla Structures does not crash anymore.
TTSD-36148 Modeling Previously, if you used imperial units when entering a numeric location, Tekla Structures removed the space from between inches and fractional inches. This has now been fixed. For example, if you enter 10'11 7/8, Tekla Structures now handles this correctly as 10'11" 7/8.
TTSD-36288 Modeling The sketch editor is not closed anymore when saving the sketched profile using the Save sketch and Save sketch as buttons.
TTSD-37136 Modeling Previously, when using a broken sketched profile in the model, Tekla Structures crashed. This has now been fixed so that the crash does not happen. Broken profiles are shown as sticks instead.
TTSD-37405 Installation In some cases, issues in loading interoperability.dll caused Tekla Structures 2020 SP1 to not launch correctly. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-703 Tools and components Previously, plugin components, such as Layout points, that were embedded in custom components, sometimes stopped working after a new model was opened. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-35840 Tools and components Previously, custom component parameters were sometimes not updated correctly. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-33950 Numbering Modifying a rebar UDA, which should affect numbering, did not flag the parent part/cast unit numbering as out-of-date. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-30326 User interface When changing the value of XS_VIEW_PART_LABEL_COLOR, you no longer need to restart Tekla Structures to activate the new value.
TTSD-36582 User interface Previously, setting the model rotation center on a reinforcement bar erroneously set it to a distant point. This has now been fixed.
TTSD-36646 User interface External ribbon tab files and exported ribbon files can now specify button icons with a relative filename. The path is relative to the .xml file where the ribbon or tab is read from. For example Icon="myicon.png" refers to a file in the same folder as the .xml file.
TTSD-37485 User interface When using DirectX rendering, software rendering is no longer forced in remote desktop connections. You can still use the XS_USE_SOFTWARE_RENDERING advanced option, if needed.
TSAC-4125 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) BVBS Export: The Private data block group has been moved from the Advanced tab to the Data content tab.
TSAC-4161 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) Export Unitechnik (79): You can now specify a special embed using class or name with the new setting Special formwork for embed on the Line attributes tab. The edge of the exported contour with this specified embed will then be exported with code 0002 by default.
TSAC-4170 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) Export Unitechnik (79): Previously, some cut bent meshes were exported with incorrectly unfolded geometry. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4185 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) EliPLAN export (68): You can now export the geometry of filled slab cores in the plotting data by using the new Export of filled cores setting on the Plotter data tab.
TSAC-4192 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) EliPLAN export (68): The Accessory code setting now has a new option called Template. The Template option exports a user-defined template property as the accessory code.
TSAC-4235 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) Export Unitechnik (79): A new setting Attribute code was added on the Line attributes tab to specify a custom line attribute code for special formwork for an embed.
TSAC-4297 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) EliPLAN export (68): You can now export an unlimited number of elements. Previously, you could export 10,000 elements at most.
TSAC-4309 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) Export Unitechnik (79): Previously, the rebar grouping functionality did not work correctly when a mesh or a bar group had multiple wire sizes in a layer. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4310 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) Export Unitechnik (79): Previously, reinforcement meshes with multiple wire sizes in a layer had incorrect reinforcement types for some of the mesh wires. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4316 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) EliPLAN export (68): You can now use user-defined template properties with the Weight calculation option Template.
TSAC-4333 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) Export Unitechnik (79): On the Reinforcement tab, you can now select how mesh wire levels are calculated by using the Mesh wire layer level setting. The options are Actual level, Highest level, Wire size, and Manual.
Actual level is the relative wire level in the model, Highest level means all wires in the layer are moved to the level of the wire with the highest z position, Wire size means that the relative level of the 2nd layer is written according to the wire size, and Manual means the 2nd layer wire level can be defined manually.
TSAC-4342, TSAC-4367 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): The following options have been added on the Reinforcement tab:

  •  A new Reinforcement export type option called Designated welded bars has been added. This option works in the same way as Fabrication of welded rebars, but you can use it with the Collect based on option to designate the rebars that will form main layers with reinforcement type 1 or 2, while the rebars remain as RODSTOCK depending on object type.
  • A new Reinforcement type option called Use 1, 2 and UDA has been added. When you select this option, the lowest rebar layer,  including all bars in the same direction, is exported with rebar type 1, and all other layers are exported as type 2.

TSAC-4362 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) EliPLAN export(68): Previously, the Plot irregular cutout/recess option incorrectly recognized also rectangular cutouts at the straight ends of slabs. This has now been fixed.
TSAC-4377 Import, export, interoperability (concrete) Unitechnik export (79): Previously, the geometry of embeds in the second shell of a double wall that had the second shell offset lengthwise, was visualised incorrectly in model view when using the Draw geometry in model option. This has now been fixed.
