Create and modify drawing views

Drawing views contain modeled Tekla Structures building objects, and marks, dimensions and other objects that you have added. A drawing view is another way of looking at the model. Drawings may include several views. In addition to the views Tekla Structures creates automatically based on your selection at drawing creation, you can also add new ones in the open drawing, and modify the existing ones.

You can have different types of views in Tekla Structures drawings:

  • Main views: front, top, back and bottom views

  • Section views

  • End views

  • Single-part views

  • 3D views

  • Detail views

  • Key plan views

  • Views along grid lines

  • Elevation views

  • Plan views
