New structural BIM software solutions

Trimble recently introduced the latest versions of its Tekla software solutions for advanced Building Information Modeling (BIM) and structural engineering —Tekla Structures 2020 and Tekla Structural Designer 2020. Tekla software is at the heart of design and construction workflows building on the free flow of information, constructible models and improved collaboration. Tekla Structures supports the Constructible Process to transform the entire design, build and operate lifecycle.

Tekla Structures 2020 delivers enhancements, improvements and new features that enable efficient workflows for better productivity, increased mobility and collaboration across project teams, including: Easier modeling of complex shapes with geometry improvements; better usability, control and productivity with concrete rebar detailing enhancements; quick and easy formworks modeling and improved hollowcore concrete detailing; enhanced drawing tools that provide speed with confidence.

Tekla Structures 2020 Maintenance now includes Trimble Connect™ collaboration platform, a cloud-based solution that allows stakeholders to share, review, coordinate and comment on data-rich building models, drawings, schedules and other project information in real-time across the project lifecycle, from a laptop, desktop or mobile device.

Direct link to modeling plugin Grasshopper

With Trimble Connect, constructible BIM data is extended to the field, liberating data and breaking down silos to improve coordination and project management across touchpoints. New functionalities and usability improvements now better support workflows and make it easier to get started with Trimble Connect.

Tekla Structural Designer 2020 structural analysis and design software introduces data-driven design with a new direct link between Tekla Structural Designer and algorithmic modeling plugin Grasshopper, enabling quick and easy exploration of different early-stage design alternatives.

Tekla Tedds 2020 structural analysis and design calculation software offers further integration with Tekla Structures and Tekla Structural Designer for convenient design management across both solutions. With enhanced integration, Tekla Tedds calculation can be automatically associated with a variety of Tekla Structures and Tekla Structural Designer objects. Tekla Structural Design Suite, a new cloud-based product bundle, includes Tekla Tedds and Tekla Structural Designer, providing additional options for taking advantage of new product integrations.
