Category in Advanced options dialog box: Numbering

Use to base assembly numbers on drawing numbers. Use the following switches to define the contents of assembly marks. Use as many switches as you need, and enclose each one in percent symbols (%).

The available switches are:




Multidrawing name.


Position of the assembly drawing inside the multidrawing.


Assembly prefix in the model.


Assembly position number in the model.

Template fields

Enter TPL: followed by the name of any relevant template field. Enclose each name in percent symbols (%). For example, %TPL:PROJECT.NUMBER%

NOTE: No template fields starting with DRAWING work for this advanced option, for example, DRAWING.TITLE1. If you use them in the value, Tekla Structures will replace the whole value string with the default value.

User-defined attributes that are defined in the objects.inp file

Enter UDA: followed by the name of any relevant user-defined attribute, exactly as it appears in the objects.inp file. For example, %UDA:MY_INFO_1%

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options database.


To put the assembly multinumbers in the format multidrawing name + part prefix + position on multidrawing, set the advanced option as follows:


This will create the assembly mark 10B1, where:

  • 10 is the drawing number

  • B is the assembly prefix

  • 1 designates that it is the first assembly on the sheet.
