Select assemblies, cast units, and nested objects

You can select either assemblies or cast units, or single objects in nested assemblies or nested components.

Select assemblies and cast units

Use the Select assemblies selection switch to select assemblies and cast units.

  1. Ensure that the Select assemblies selection switch is active.
  2. Select a part.

    Tekla Structures selects the entire cast unit or assembly that contains the selected part.

Alternatively, to select an entire assembly or cast unit, hold down the Alt key and select one of the parts in the assembly or cast unit. Tekla Structures selects the entire cast unit or assembly that contains the selected part.

The number of objects in the assembly or in the cast unit is shown at the bottom right corner of the status bar.

Select nested objects

You can select nested assemblies and components. The active selection switch defines on which level you start and toward which direction you move in the component or assembly hierarchy. The status bar shows the steps you take in the hierarchy.

  1. Ensure that the correct selection switch is active.
    • : to start from the assemblies on the highest level, move to their sub-assemblies, and finally select single parts, bolts, and so on

    • : to start from single objects and move to higher levels of nested assemblies

    • : to start from the components on the highest level, move to their sub-components, and finally select single parts, bolts, and so on

    • : to start from single objects and move to higher levels of nested components

  2. Place the mouse pointer on any part in the assembly or in the component.
  3. Hold down the Shift key.
  4. Scroll with the mouse wheel.

    The blue highlighting box indicates the assembly or the component that you can select.
