When you start Tekla Structures , you are asked to choose your Tekla Structures setup. The setup consists of an environment, role, and configuration.
Environment means region-specific settings and information. It defines which profiles, material grades, default values, connections, wizards, variables, reports, and templates you have available.
Role is a user group profile that limits the availability of files and settings in an environment. The user interface has been customized for each role.
Configuration consists of a set of features that the user is entitled to based on the license agreement. Each configuration is meant for a specific user group, to suit the various players in the construction industry.
