Add alternate dimensions
If a dimension in a bill of materials that you want to import has a different description than in Tekla EPM, problems might occur when importing the file. Adding alternate dimensions enables Tekla EPM to cross-reference to the same dimension, and that way, identify the dimension.
- In the shape list in the Shape / Grade / Size Maintenance dialog box, select the shape.
- Open the Dimensions tab.
- In the Dimension list, select a dimension.
- Open the Alternates tab.
- Below the existing alternate dimensions, click Add.
- Type the description that will cross-reference to the selected dimension.
- Click OK.
The new alternate dimension is added to the material database and shown in the Dimension Alternate list.
