Rebar shape placing tool: The length of the first bar leg with a 90+ degree hook has now been fixed.

TTSD-52340 Reinforcement

Tekla Structures checks for duplicates when a new model object is created. The duplicate detection was fixed so that overlapping rebar set modifiers of different types (for example, a property modifier and an end detail modifier) are not considered to be duplicates even if they have identical geometry.

TTSD-56186 Reinforcement

Previously, when a polygon mesh with the Multiple varying distances spacing method was modified using direct modification, incorrect width and length values were reported for it. This issue has now been fixed.

TTSD-56956 Reinforcement

Copying welds in Batch editor now works better than previously.

TTSD-57470 Modeling

Previously, if an analysis model (.db6) was created of a physical model, the Ctrl+A selection might be affected so that physical model parts with corresponding analysis parts were not selected, even when the analysis model was not active. This issue has now been fixed.

TTSD-57607 Modeling

Bolts: Earlier, bolts inside components were incorrectly positioned when one of the input parts was deformed by shortening. The incorrect positioning occurred when XS_DRAW_BOLTS_3D_IN_BOLT_LAYER was set to TRUE and when the bolts had the Exact representation in model views. This issue has now been fixed.

TTSD-54466 Analysis and design

When changes in the physical model are considered for an analysis model or analysis part (Automatic update set to Yes - Physical model changes are considered), changing the rotation for a physical part now updates the corresponding analysis object.

TTSD-57253 Analysis and design

Tekla Structures 2022 is only compatible with Tekla Structural Designer 2021 or 2022 (all service packs). Previously, if Tekla Structural Designer 2023 was also installed, the direct Import and Export commands tried to use the latest version and then failed without a specific message.
This issue has now been fixed so that Tekla Structures 2022 will use the correct version for direct import and export. For example:

  • If Tekla Structural Designer 2021 and 2022 and 2023 are installed, the direct links will use Tekla Structural Designer 2022.
  • If Tekla Structural Designer 2021 and 2023 are installed, the direct links will use Tekla Structural Designer 2021.
  • If only Tekla Structural Designer 2023 is installed, the direct links will warn the user that there is no compatible version of Tekla Structural Designer.

Please note that Tekla Structures 2023 is only compatible with Tekla Structural Designer 2023 (all service packs).

TTSD-57201 Numbering

Rebar sets: Rebar GUIDs are now shown in the numbering history log in case there are overlapping numbering series for rebar sets.

TTSD-56559 User interface
