Create and modify shop setups
If your company has multiple shops, you can create additional labor databases, called shop setups, in Tekla PowerFab. We also recommend that you create an additional test shop if you are still learning to use Tekla PowerFab, so that you do not accidentally make changes to the original shop.
- Click the Maintenance ribbon tab.
On the menu, select
- To create a new shop setup, in the Shop Setup Maintenance dialog box, click New.
- In the Description field, type a name for the shop setup.
- If you want to use an existing shop setup as the base of the new setup, select it in the Copy From Shop Setup list.
- Click Add.
The new shop setup is added to the list. You can now customize all the shop settings according to your needs.
To modify the name of an existing shop setup, select the shop setup, rename it, and click Edit.
