Steel Detailing Using Tekla

In order for a company to be able to make it to the top and stay ahead of the competition, it has to make sure that the brands and organization supporting it are equally on top of their game. This would mean that these companies and brand names should make use of only the latest technologies in order to provide support to their business partners. Such is the case with us here at Elmasry.

One of the many ways by which we make sure that we are ahead of the game is by providing steel detailing using Tekla. Steel shop drawings that are made with the help of high-end technologies care of the said company ensure that engineers and planners are able to easily appreciate the details that need to be taken into consideration when planning and setting up a structure. In the long run, this can help the engineers as well as the building owners to save on costs. Without the steel shop drawings in place, planners face the difficulty of making the needed changes especially when the structure has already been put up. In such occasions, they only have two options – to leave things as is and put everyone at risk, or knock down the incorrect structure and risk having to spend more.

Tekla is a company founded in 1966 that focuses on computer software programming. Located in Finland, the company is primarily known for such products as Tekla Structures, a 3D BIM (Building Information Modelling) computer application currently used by a number of companies in order to provide quality steel detailing service. What makes the Tekla Structures sought after by most of the companies engaged in steel detailing service is the fact that it can help planners and designers come up with and manage 3D models right from the creation of the design concept to the fabrication. What’s more, since steel shop drawings using Tekla are automated, human errors are easily lessened, if not eradicated, leading to a more accurate 3D model. Output are also automatically generated which means clients need not wait for a long time in order to check the 3D model. Any changes that clients want to be done on the 3D images are also automatically incorporated, doing away with lengthy waiting time.

Aside from Tekla Structures, the company also provides Tekla Solutions and TeklaBIMsight. With the Tekla Solutions, models created by other BIM software and applications can easily be transported and tweaked. With the help of TeklaBIMsight, companies can now check spatial coordination. By doing so, problems concerning clashes in the design and constructability can easily be avoided. What’s more the details generated by the TeklaBIMsight can easily shared with other parties who may or may not be doing steel detailing using Tekla. On the other hand, companies engaged in infrastructure and energy industries may benefit more with the help of Tekla Solutions. Both applications were launched in 2011 and is considered to be the latest when it comes to software applications for steel shop drawings.
