Create drawings in Tekla Structures

Drawing creation is always based on drawing properties, no matter which way you use to create them. Planning and implementing the most suitable drawing settings carefully is very important. You can create drawings one by one, in groups, or you can create all drawings automatically.

Choose the method that suits you the best:

  • The Create fabrication drawing command is an easy way to create single-part, assembly, or cast unit drawings, if you have drawing templates available for use, or if you have saved settings that you want to apply.

  • You can find drawing creation commands on the ribbon, context menu, contextual toolbar, and in Quick Launch.

  • You can also create drawings using the various master drawing types in the Master drawing catalog. Using rule sets is a highly automated process of creating several drawings of different type in one go.

  • You can clone drawings on the basis of cloning templates in the current model or in the cloning template models. You can clone drawings in the Master drawing catalog and in Document manager.

  • You can increase the level of automation even more by applying detailed object level settings to all of the above mentioned methods. When the level of automation increases, the need for manual modifications decreases. We recommend that you put extra effort in making the automated settings as efficient as possible.
