Tekla Structural Designer

Tekla Structural Designer is a software that allows you to design reinforced concrete buildings and steel buildings. It works with real physical objects such as beams, columns and slabs. The information transferred is the physical information such as geometry, section sizes and grade as well as attributed data. In Tekla Structures, you can import from and export to Tekla Structural Designer.

Tekla Structural Designer is a code-based modeling tool, which enables structural engineers to establish a code compliance design of the structure, and perform calculations and schema design, for example. All the design/code data is held within Tekla Structural Designer at all times.

Tekla Structural Designer will analyze and design structures to a range of International codes of practice.

The initial model can be started in either Tekla Structures or Tekla Structural Designer, depending on the project needs. You can import and export many times, and make use of the effective change management functionality.

The integration process allows you to pass models between Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Structures, allowing the updates in the model at both ends. As the model is integrated between software applications, the changes are updated, and modifications performed since the last integration operation are maintained within the model.

For the full integration process, including importing reinforcement, you need to have compatible versions of Tekla Structures and Tekla Structural Designer installed on the same computer and access to the original Tekla Structures Designer file (.tsmd). Otherwise Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Structures accept and produce files in the .cxl neutral file format. The .cxl file format is an XML based neutral file format that allows applications to link Tekla Structural Designer.

Tekla Structures supports files created in Tekla Structural Designer 2016 or later.

This section only contains instructions regarding import and re-import from Tekla Structural Designer, and export to Tekla Structural Designer.
