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.
SpaceClaim is a solid modeling CAD application that runs on Microsoft Windows. It is developed by SpaceClaim Corporation, but now owned by ANSYS.
SpaceClaim’s 3D direct modeling technology is expressed by the following tools: pull, move, fill, and combine.
Pull contains most creation features which can be found in traditional CAD systems. For instance, using the Pull tool on a face by default offsets the face, but using the Pull tool on an edge rounds it.
Move relocates components and geometry, and can also be used to create patterns (often called arrays).
Fill primarily removes geometry from a part by extending geometry to fill in the surrounding area. It is commonly used for deleting rounds and holes from a model.
Combine merges parts and subtracts parts from each other.
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
