According to the aforementioned press release, Tekla Structures 21 will improve “industrial and commercial construction project workflows across construction disciplines”.
Risto Raty, Executive Vice President of Tekla commented on the new release, stating: “After a decade in use, Tekla Structures continues to further the evolution of BIM from an experimental to an essential part of designing, engineering and building all types of buildings and structures.
“Tekla Structures 21 reduces the time between concept and construction by enabling more advanced project team collaboration and productivity – enabling free flowing communication between all project stakeholders for more efficient design and building processes.”
Improved connectivity with other popular BIM software brands such as Autodesk Revit is also a key enhancement of the latest version: “By providing tight integration with other popular BIM software – as well as our own analysis and design software Tekla Structural Designer – and incorporating deep support for IFC, Tekla Structures 21 allows project team members from all disciplines to work together to address potential problems during the modeling stage, when they can be inexpensively and expediently addressed,” explained Raty.
“These process improvements pave the way for successful projects where everyone wins.”
Concurrently to the release of Structure 21, two new Tekla services have also been announced. Tekla Model Sharing will allow “project team members to work on the same project from any location or time zone” meaning work can completed quicker due to addition flexibility. Tekla Warehouse is another new release, and is a free-to-access online library filled with modelling tools, intelligent parts and templates compatible with Tekla Structures.
