Tekla Structures

Note: To see a video (narrated in English) of the recommended ARCHICAD-Tekla Structures workflow and its options, based on a real example, go to:
http://www.graphisoft.com/archicad/open_bim/structural_workflows/
Hint: Although this chapter focuses on IFC models, you can also enhance the IFC connection between ARCHICAD and Tekla by using the BCF collaboration workflow, which is supported by both programs.
However, you should not use this filter when importing a model from Tekla Structures (the “All elements” setting is recommended instead), because Tekla Structures does not differentiate between load-bearing and non-load bearing elements when exporting them.
Note: You should not filter elements by “Structural Function” when importing a model from Tekla Structures, because Tekla Structures does not differentiate between load-bearing and non-load bearing elements in its model export; it does not support the “Load-Bearing” IFC property. Thus, the “All elements” option is the recommended and default Model Element Filter setting of the “Data Exchange with Tekla Structures” translator.
