Tips for updating custom components to a new version

When you start using a new version of Tekla Structures , always check that custom components created in older versions work correctly in the new version.

When you edit custom components created with an older version of Tekla Structures , and the new version contains improvements that require an update, Tekla Structures asks whether you want to update the component. If you do not update the component, it works in the same manner as in the version where it was originally created, but you do not gain the benefits of the new improvements.

If you choose to update the component, you need to check and sometimes recreate dimensions depending on the improvements. When you delete a dimension and create a new one (even with the same name), the equations that contain the dimension also need to be modified, because the dependency created by the equation is lost when a dimension is deleted. You can recreate dimensions and modify equations in the custom component editor.
