Show parts, components, or assemblies in a selected view angle
In some cases it is useful to examine parts, components, or assemblies in a selected view angle. For example, when you reinforce concrete elements, you can easily check the distances between the reinforcing bars.
The View angle option is not available for:
detail system components
detail custom components
- Select an object.
- Click View angle on the contextual toolbar.
Select a top, back, right, bottom, front, or left view.
Tekla Structures displays the object in the selected view angle. Note that the full object is not always displayed.
For parts, the view angle is based on the selected object's coordinate system, so that the top view is looking to the negative z-direction. For example, if you select the top view, Tekla Structures sets the current view angle from up to down in the coordinate system.
For assemblies and components, the view angle is based on the assembly main part's coordinate system. Because of that, the object may not always appear as expected in the selected view angle.
- To return to the original 3D view, click the button in the middle of the view angle options.
Tekla Structures shows the object in the current view, which is the view where your mouse has last been. If the contextual toolbar is located, for example, on top of two views, the object is shown in the view where your mouse has last been and not in the view where the object was selected.
