New rendering modes for reference models

In Tekla Structures 2022, you can now control the reference model and overlay model visualization separately from parts and components.

With the new rendering options, it is easier to achieve the desired visualization of the model. By separating the reference model rendering from the component rendering, you can now clearly identify which objects are in a reference model and which objects in a component.

There are new ribbon commands for reference model visualization on the View tab:

  • References wireframe

  • References shaded wireframe

  • References grayscale

  • References rendered

  • Show only selected reference

Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+1...5.


References grayscale and Show only selected reference options do not work with the overlay models.
