Catalog files

Tekla Structures uses ASCII and binary files to manage profile, material, reinforcement, bolt and bolt assembly catalogs.

Each environment has its own folder, where the files related to different catalogs are stored. For example, ..\environments\uk\general\profil\ contains the files for managing catalog files used in the United Kingdom. The exact file location may vary depending on the folder structure of your environment files.

The following table lists files and file types related to catalogs.

File type File name Used for Located in

.inp

profitab.inp

Defines the names that you can use for parametric profiles.

In the \profil folder, under the environment folders, in ..\ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\<environment>\

rebar_database.inp

The rebar catalog.

In the \profil folder, under the environment folders, in ..\ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\<environment>\

mesh_database.inp

The reinforcement mesh catalog.

In the \profil folder, under the environment folders, in ..\ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\<environment>\

You can define the file name while exporting.

Created when you export rebar catalogs.

You can define the folder where to export the files.

.cnv

matexp_<software>.cnv

Contains information to convert material names when transferring model information using links. For example, converts S235JR to FE360B for DSTV.

In the \profil folder, under the environment folders, in ..\ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\<environment>\

prfexp_<software>.cnv

Contains information to convert profile names when transferring model information using links. For example, converts HEA100 to HE100A for DSTV.

In the \profil folder, under the environment folders, in ..\ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\<environment>\

.clb

For example, RU_CF.clb

Contains the definitions of parametric profiles used in profitab.inp.

..\ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\common\inp

.lis

You can define the file name while exporting.

Created when you export bolt, profile and material catalogs.

You can define the folder where to export the files.
