Set up the workspace
Before starting to model, check that your Tekla Structures workspace is set up correctly.
- Define the units and decimals you will use.
- Modify the grid to suit your needs. Create a modular grid if needed.
- Create some views to examine the model from different angles and elevations.
- Resize the work area to suit your project.
- Get familiar with the coordinate system. If you are modeling sloped structures, shift the work plane accordingly.
