Categories in Organizer

You can categorize your model in location categories and other type of categories that you can create based on your needs using for example object properties.

  • Using location categories, you can create a location breakdown structure and divide the model into projects, sites, buildings, sections and floors. A project contains all the objects of the models that are selected in the category properties, either the Tekla Structures model or reference models, or both. Within a project, a model object can belong to only one lowest level location category at a time.

    Organizer always creates an uncategorized category in a project for objects that cannot be included in any other category based on the location definitions you have made. You can modify the definitions to include the objects to location categories.

  • Property categories allow you to add user-defined attributes (UDA) to model objects. Within a property category, a model object can belong to only one lowest level category at a time.
  • Custom categories are created based on the rules that you define. Objects are added to the categories based on these rules. You can also create categories manually without rules.

An example of a default category set in Organizer:

When you have included objects in the categories:

  • The number of objects in a category is shown in parentheses for location categories and property categories, and for lowest level custom categories.

  • The number of objects in a category and the total number of objects included in the category and its subcategories is shown in parentheses for custom categories, as shown in the image below.
