Learn how to convert OBJ to Tekla with CAD Exchanger
OBJ is a geometry definition file format (.obj extension) first developed by Wavefront Technologies for its Advanced Visualizer animation package.
The OBJ file format is a simple data-format that represents 3D geometry alone — namely, the position of each vertex, the UV position of each texture coordinate vertex, vertex normals, and the faces that make each polygon defined as a list of vertices, and texture vertices.
Vertices are stored in a counter-clockwise order by default, making explicit declaration of face normals unnecessary. OBJ coordinates have no units, but OBJ files can contain scale information in a human readable comment line.
Tekla, owned by Trimble is a software product family that consists of programs for analysis and design. Tekla software includes several applications.
Tekla Structures is 3D BIM software widely used in the building and construction industries. The software allows users to create and operate 3D structural models in concrete or steel and leads them through the process from concept to fabrication.
Tekla Structural Designer is a software app for analysis and construction design. It is used by structural engineers.
Tekla Tedds is a software solution for automating repetitive calculations. It is used in engineering for creating output such as calculations, sketches and notes.
Tekla BIMsight is an application for building information model-based construction project collaboration.
Need to work with CAD files in numerous formats? No worries.
From OBJ to Tekla, CAD Exchanger gets you covered.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
