PERIMETER

This is a template attribute. Template attributes can be used in filtering, or to retrieve data from the model to use in drawings and reports. For example, when you create a report, Tekla Structures replaces the attributes added in the report template with the corresponding object property values.

The template attribute PERIMETER gives the perimeter of concrete slabs or polygon plates. In Template Editor, the content type of this template attribute is PART.PERIMETER. It can be used both in textual templates and in graphical templates.

PERIMETER can also be used for calculating formwork area, for take-offs, and in filtering.

In filtering, you can use PERIMETER to distinguish beam plates from polygon (contour) plates. If you create a filter with a row "Template - PERIMETER - Does not equal - 0", you can catch plates that are created using the contour plate command instead of the steel beam command.
