Initialization files (.ini files)
Initialization files are used for defining Tekla Structures start-up parameters and default settings. They contain advanced options that are used for configuring Tekla Structures for different standards, and for your or your company’s style of working.
Tekla Structures automatically creates the necessary initialization files during installation. The number of initialization files it creates depends on how many Tekla Structures environments you have installed.
You can also define switches for advanced
options in .ini files. In this case, you need to
use double percent signs around the switch %%xxx%%. When you define a switch in the
Advanced options dialog box, you only use single percent signs around the switch %xxx% . For
%%BOLT_NUMBER%%*D%%HOLE.DIAMETER%% for the advanced option
XS_BOLT_MARK_STRING_FOR_SIZE when you define it in an .ini file.
