Change the part representation to show parts with exact lines or with high accuracy

Even if you have set the part representation to Fast in the display settings, you can temporarily view the parts using different representation options.

Show parts with exact lines

Use the Show part with exact lines command to temporarily display a part with exact lines even if you are using the Fast representation option for parts.

  1. Select the part.
  2. Go to Quick Launch, start typing show part with exact lines, and select the Show part with exact lines command from the list that appears.
  3. Click the view in which you want to display exact lines.
  4. To clear the exact lines effect, on the View tab, click .

Show parts with high accuracy

You can temporarily display parts with the highest possible level of accuracy. This can be useful, for example, when checking a large model, because the entire model can still be displayed in the Fast or Exact representation mode but the individual part can be shown in more detail.

  1. Select the parts.
  2. Right-click, and then hold down the Shift key while selecting Show with Exact Lines.

    Tekla Structures displays the selected parts with the highest possible level of accuracy.

  3. To clear the high accuracy effect, right-click and select Show with Exact Lines.

(1) Normal display mode

(2) High accuracy mode
