Tekla Structures is Building Information Modeling (BIM) software that enables the creation and management of accurately detailed, highly constructable 3D structural models regardless of material or structural complexity. Tekla models can be used to cover the entire building process from conceptual design to fabrication, erection and construction management.
Tekla Structures is one product available in different configurations and localized environments that provide specialized set of functionality to suit the segment and culture-specific needs of the construction industry.
With an ambition to multiply its customers’ potential to think and achieve big, Tekla provides a BIM (Building Information Modeling) software environment that can be shared by contractors, structural engineers, steel detailers and fabricators, as well as concrete detailers and manufacturers.
The highly detailed as-built 3D models created, combined and distributed with Tekla software enable the highest level of constructability and production control. Centralizing building information into the model allows for more collaborative and integrated project management and delivery. This translates into increased productivity and elimination of waste, thus making construction and buildings more sustainable.
Tekla BIM software can be used to interface with other existing applications, or solely as a platform to develop a customizable internal solution. It is an open solution that supports interoperability and standardization. Tekla Structures links with various systems through Tekla Open API™ application programming interface that is implemented using Microsoft® .NET technology. Examples of standard formats supported by Tekla are IFC, CIS/2, SDNF and DSTV. Examples of proprietary formats supported by Tekla are DWG, DXF and DGN.
Tekla BIMsight is Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for model-based project cooperation. It is available free of charge for anyone to install and start using from the Internet. This easy-to-access application presents the complete construction project including all necessary building information from different construction disciplines. Tekla BIMsight is much more than a new Tekla viewer: you can communicate using the building information model with anyone, not just Tekla Structures or other BIM software users.
