You can export Tekla Structures models as .skp files to be used in Trimble SketchUp.

Trimble SketchUp is a modeling software used in architecture, construction, engineering, and landscape architecture, for example. 3D Warehouse contains lots of SketchUp models that you can import as reference models to Tekla Structures.

You can insert Sketchup files as reference models to Tekla Structures. For more information about inserting reference models, see Insert a reference model.

Tekla Structures supports SketchUp version 2021 and earlier in export and reference model insert.

Export a model to SketchUp

  1. Select the model objects to export.

  5. On the Advanced tab, select the objects that you want to export.
    You can export:

  6. Click Create selected.

    If have not selected any model objects, and want to export everything, click Create all.
