Tekla Tools

Tekla Tools

StruSoft offers set of free tools that enable direct communication between FEM-Design and Tekla Structures. The two independent tools exchange data through an external file in xml format, called struxml. Both tools can be found in Download tab.

⤷ Tekla StruXML Export

Tekla StruXML Export tool enables direct communication between Tekla and FEM-Design. The direct data transfer is solely based on Tekla Analysis Model export. The exact geometry of selected analysis model can be exported to an external file in xml format (struxml), which can be opened in FEM-Design. The proper sections and materials are assigned to struxml objects in the mapping process performed in the tool.

Characteristics:

  • Export selected Tekla Structure analysis model to FEM-Design.
  • The .struxml file will include the defined material and profile mapping.
  • List of transfered data: geometry of analytical model, mapped cross-section of linear members, mapped material, releases of linear members, rigid links, grids system.

 

⤷ Tekla StruXML Import

Tekla StruXML Import tool enables direct communication between FEM-Design and Tekla . The direct data transfer is based on conversion of FEM-Design analysis model transfer into Tekla native objects. The proper sections and materials are assigned to Tekla native objects in the mapping process performed in the tool.

Characteristics:

  • Import FEM-Design model to create a new Tekla Structures model.
  • Update Tekla Structures model with changes made in FEM-Design model after the initial import.
  • One can import/update: selected element(s), group of elements (e.g. all beams, columns, etc.), all elements.
  • List of transfered data: geometry of FEM-Design analysis model, mapped cross-section of linear members, thickness of plane walls and plane plates, mapped material, analytical element ID of an object.
