Work offline with a Tekla Structures subscription

You can keep your Tekla Structures subscription license seat reserved if you want to use Tekla Structures offline.

Note: It is not possible to use Tekla Structures simultaneously on different computers with the same subscription.

You can use Tekla Structures offline for a maximum of 3 days. At the end of the offline time, you can no longer use Tekla Structures offline. If you have a model open, you can save it before closing Tekla Structures.

Note:

If you use an on-premises license server to access your Diamond, Graphite, or Carbon subscription without an internet connection, you cannot borrow your license for offline use.

Use Tekla Structures offline

  1. Start Tekla Structures, then open a model.
  2. Close Tekla Structures.
  3. In the closing confirmation message dialog box, ensure that Keep this license reserved on this device is selected.
Your Tekla Structures subscription license seat is reserved on your computer. You can use Tekla Structures offline for a maximum of 3 days.

Release your Tekla Structures subscription license seat

If your subscription license seat is reserved, you must release the subscription license seat before you can use Tekla Structures on a different computer.

Note:

If you use more than one version of Tekla Structures, you must release your subscription license seat in all versions where it is reserved.

If you frequently use Tekla Structures on different computers, we recommend that you use the XS_DEFAULT_​KEEP​_ONLINE​_LICENSE​_CHECKBOX advanced option to set the Keep this license reserved on this device checkbox to never be selected by default.

  1. Start Tekla Structures, then open a model.
  2. Release your subscription license seat in one of these ways, depending on the Tekla Structures version:
    • In version 2021 or newer, close Tekla Structures and clear the Keep this license reserved on this device checkbox in the closing confirmation message dialog box.
    • In versions older than 2021, click your user name, clear the Stay signed in checkbox, then close Tekla Structures.

If the connection to the Tekla subscription service is lost

If the connection to the Tekla subscription service is lost, a notification is shown. Tekla Structures continues to function in offline mode for the amount of time shown in the notification.

The maximum offline time is 3 days.

The possible cause might be one of the following:

  • No internet connection is available, or there are other connectivity problems in your network.

  • Tekla subscription service is experiencing a disruption. For more information, check the status page.

  • Trimble Identity service is experiencing a disruption. For more information, check the status page.

Tekla Structures tries to reconnect automatically. You can also try to reconnect manually by clicking Try reconnecting now. If the button is dimmed, it is not possible to reconnect at the moment.

  • The button might be dimmed if your subscription license seat is reserved. Release your subscription license seat and start Tekla Structures again.

  • Otherwise, wait until the button is available and try again.
