3D Systems

tekla_steel_detail1Highly detailed as-built building information models enable the highest level of constructability and production control. Centralizing model and non-model based data into the Tekla model allows for more collaborative and integrated project management and delivery from conceptual design to construction.

tekla_steel_detail3Tekla Structures BIM software provides an accurate, dynamic, and data-rich 3D environment that can be shared by contractors, structural engineers, steel detailers and fabricators, as well as concrete detailers and manufacturers.

The structural steel industry is facing more challenges due to shorter lead times, lack of complete information, problems in revision handling, and a wider need to collaborate with other disciplines. Modeling with Tekla Structures BIM (Building Information Modeling) software is the most advanced and integrated way to detail and fabricate all steel structures, such as commercial buildings, industrial plants, sports stadiums, offshore platforms and jackets including miscellaneous steel work.

tekla_steel_detail2Key benefits of Tekla Structures for the steel industry:

  • Winning more tenders through accurate estimation
  • Effective, high-quality detailing
  • Integration downstream and upstream
  • Easy project follow-up in real time

No other tool on the market supports information management throughout the process; Tekla Structures is a model-based solution to increase productivity through higher automation of fabrication and project management by interfacing with MIS systems and CNC machinery. Tekla Structures enables the most data-rich, highly constructable 3D and 4D structural building information models, and is a significant contrast to current document-based platforms where drawings and reports are distributed and reworked among different organizations.
