Tekla Structural Designer configurations

The Tekla Structural Designer configurations that you have access to will depend on your organization's online licenses as follows:

  • A subscription to Tekla Structural Designer unlocks the Tekla Structural Designer Full configuration which can be used for modeling, analysis and design.
  • A subscription to Tedds unlocks the Tekla Structural Designer LT configuration. This configuration can also be used for modeling, analysis and design, but is limited to 200 members and 8000 shells.
  • For students, a special student configuration is also available.

Our documentation covers the content of the Tekla Structural Designer Full configuration, so you may not have access to all the described features. If you have more than one configuration you can select the one you require when you start Tekla Structural Designer.
