This section contains information on the use of steel and concrete system components that ship with Tekla Structures.
Components are tools that you can use to connect parts in the model. Components automate tasks and group objects so that Tekla Structures treats them as a single unit. You can save the properties of a component and use them in other projects. Tekla Structures contains a wide range of predefined system components by default.
Components adapt to changes in the model, which means that Tekla Structures automatically modifies a component if you modify the parts it connects.
All components are stored in the Applications & components catalog. Click the Applications & components button in the side pane to open the Applications & components catalog.
