Tekla, HGG to Unveil Tekla Structures 15 for
Mar 17, 2009 - Tekla and HGG started cooperation on developing a
standardized software solution for the steel tube industry in the fall of 2007.
As a result, Tekla Structures 15, scheduled for release in the end of March
2009, will introduce a solution for producing required control data for CNC
(Computer Numerical Control) machinery in standard open XML format. Tekla
Structures is the only solution on the market to cover all 3D tubular structures
from design and detailing to automatic fabrication.
Up until today, data transfer with tubular sections has been possible but
it has required several manual operations and editing of data to complete
the process. By completing the 3D building information model (BIM) with a
wide range of tubular connections it is now possible to export information
to tube profiling machines by using open XML as the new industry standard.
Tekla and HGG integrated solution for modeling and manufacturing tubular
steel structures includes: full range of components in Tekla Structures to cover
the needs for modeling tubular structures; the new component types are offshore
saddle (AWS) and offshore chamfer, saddle and hole, mitre and hole, chamfer and
slotted hole integrated export of complete manufacturing information from the
model directly to 3D tube profiling production XML format-based industry
standard for transferring data that is open to any tube profiling machine
company or design software supplier visualization module for 3D representations
of cutting shapes on tubular structures
All information about tubular sections can now be managed and kept up-to-date
in the 3D building information model so that all data for fabrication can be
extracted from one source. This does not require any manual input or editing
anymore. Even complex tubular connections can be handled automatically.
In more detail, the objective has been to enable input of required
parameters, such as root opening, shrinkage, bevel, and profile type, into Tekla
Structures. The new NC application creates the required control data file in XML
format from these parameters, and HGG calculation module generates contour
information from this file which will be used as input when visualizing weld
