How Tekla Structures applies drawing properties in drawing creation

Tekla Structures generates drawings according to the properties defined for each drawing type. You define the desired properties before you create the drawings. The way Tekla Structures connects the properties to the drawing you create depends on the method you select for creating the drawing.

  • If you create the drawings in the Master Drawing Catalog using saved settings, Tekla Structures uses the properties defined in the saved settings file you select. Saved settings file in the Master Drawing Catalog is the same thing as the drawing properties file you save in various drawing properties dialog boxes.

  • If you create the drawings in the Master Drawing Catalog using a rule set, Tekla Structures creates the drawing according to the properties defined in the saved settings file or cloning template file used in the rule set.

  • If you create the drawings in the Master Drawing Catalog using cloning templates, Tekla Structures creates the drawing using the properties that you have defined for the drawing used as a cloning template together with the manual modifications that you have made in the drawing.

  • If you create drawings through Drawings & reports tab using the Create drawings menu button commands,Tekla Structures uses the current drawing properties to create the drawings.
