Steel member autodesign
The design mode for each member is specified in its properties.
- When Autodesign is not selected (i.e. check mode), you assign your desired section size to the member and Tekla Structural Designer determines if the section is sufficient.
- When Autodesign is selected the section type to be used is specified from a Design
Section Order and Tekla Structural Designer attempts to automatically determine a suitable section.
The following controls can be applied to further limit the sections considered:
Note: If a member type has been set to be designed using Design groups, then if at least one member of the group is set to autodesign, the whole group will be automatically designed.
