Changes in template attributes
Tekla Structures 2021 introduces several new template attributes.
Bolt hole depth
Use the new
template attribute on
HOLE content type rows in
templates to show the bolt hole depth.
useful in reporting the depth of blind holes that do not extend completely
Formwork area in global coordinate system
Use the following new template attributes to report the formwork areas of cast-in-place cast unit faces whose normal vector points in the top, bottom, or side direction of the form in the global coordinate system:
These attributes can be used on
CAST_UNIT content type
rows in templates. These attributes do not work on
Unlike with precast concrete, the
formwork areas of cast-in-place concrete are not dependent on the
Top-in-form face settings.
With precast cast units, you can still use the template attributes
A new template attribute ROW_IN_ALLPAGES has been added. When you use this attribute in a value field, the row number incrementing continues on the next page. Previously, the only attribute available was ROW_IN_PAGE, which produces an incremental number starting from 1 at the beginning of each new page.
SUB_ID_WITH_LETTERS and SUB_ID_WITH_LETTERS_LAST
You can now use SUB_ID_WITH_LETTERS and SUB_ID_WITH_LETTERS_LAST as template attributes when you report tapered bar groups created by rebar sets.
This improvement was already introduced in Tekla Structures 2020 SP3.
CROSS_SECTION_AREA and WEIGHT_PER_UNIT_LENGTH
The existing template attributes
CROSS_SECTION_AREA and WEIGHT_PER_UNIT_LENGTH are now available for reinforcement on the
SINGLE REBAR rows.
