Release notes: Tekla Structural Designer 2021 SP4.1

Note: This release fixes a couple of issues that were inadvertently introduced in 2021 SP4. As SP4.1 also includes all the fixes and enhancements released in SP4, the latter has now been withdrawn. Please read the Service Pack 4 release notes for fixes and enhancements included but not documented here.

This release will update your Tekla Structural Designer installation to version number 21.4.1.2 and should be installed to ensure optimum function of the program. It includes two issue resolutions for recent issues as detailed below.

If you are upgrading from a version earlier than the immediately prior release 2021 SP4 (version 21.4.0.72 released Dec 2021), you can find details of requirements, enhancements and fixes for all previous releases in Tekla User Assistance (TUA) and Tekla Downloads via the links below:

    • Autodesk Revit© - the Tekla Structural Designer Integrator for Autodesk Revit© 2022 (version 8.0) was released in June 2021. For more information about this see the Tekla Structural Designer Integrator June 2021 updates page. The installation for this is available in Tekla Downloads. If you are using Autodesk Revit© 2022, you can install this to perform BIM integration with Tekla Structural Designer.
      • Fixes and enhancements included in the Integrator for Revit© 2022 were also included in updates for the Integrators specific to the other currently supported Revit© versions which are 2019 (update version 5.04), 2020 (update version 6.03) and 2021 (update version 7.02). For more information see the Tekla Structural Designer Integrator June 2021 updates page. If you are performing BIM integration with any of these Revit© versions, we recommend you update to the latest version of the associated Integrator.
        • Please note that the Integrator for Revit© 2018 is no longer supported and so there is no update for this.

  • Previous Versions and file compatibility - files from all previous versions can be opened in this release, however note that, once saved, they cannot then be opened in a previous release. If you wish to retain this option we therefore recommend using the File > Save As… option to save a copy of the file in the previous release and retain the original.

Design - General

  • [TSD-10946] - Slab & Patch Design - reversal of context menu Check/ Design procedures

Design - Head Code Eurocode

  • [TSD-10932] - Steel column design - incorrect axial force in Combined Buckling Check
