#53140 Instructions related to accessing the forum

Posted by Rune Backman on 04 February 2015 - 08:19 AM

Tekla Online services use Trimble Identity for identification. In addition to Tekla services, you can use your Trimble Identity with several other Trimble services, such as Trimble Connect and SketchUp 3D Warehouse. Trimble Identity provides single-sign-on access for Tekla Online services. You can sign in one service and then browse to another online service without a need to log in again. Find the services landing page here: http://www.tekla.com/services


If you cannot access the Tekla Discussion forum, please read and follow the instructions below.


Instructions for every forum user:

  1. Make sure that you have created a Trimble Identity for yourself
    1. If you have not created an identity, please do so.
  1. Make sure that your Trimble Identity is verified
    1. When you create a Trimble Identity, you will get an email containg a verification link. Make sure you click the link to activate your identity.
    2. Check your spam settings / spam email folder if you do not receive the email. It is likely your company’s email firewall is stopping emails from arriving. Please contact your IT department and ask them to allow emails from *@trimble.com and *@trimblepaas.com and *@mail.trimblepaas.com.
  2. Make sure that you get appropriate access rights to the Tekla Discussion Forum and all other Tekla Online Services

    For example, if you work for a company having a valid Tekla Structures maintenance contract, you are entitled to login to the Tekla Discussion Forums for Tekla Structures users on maintenance.
    1. Login to https://account.tekla.com and check your profile.
    2. If you do not see the name of your company mentioned in your profile under MY ORGANIZATION, it means that your personal Trimble Identity has not been linked to your organization in the service and you do not have on-maintenance access rights.
    3. Contact the main user in your company. He/she is the organization administrator of your company account.
    4. Ask him/her to invite you the your organization in the Tekla online service.

NOTE! Access rights to Tekla Online Services are granted to Tekla customer organizations and you get your access rights when you join your organization in the Tekla online service.


Instructions for every main user in companies having a valid Tekla maintenance contract:


How do I invite the employees of my company to our organization in the Tekla online service?

  1. Login to the Tekla Online Admin Tool at https://admin.account.tekla.com using your own Trimble Identity.
  2. Open the company page and check the list of employees belonging to your company.
  3. If you cannot see all your employees on the list, invite them by clicking the Invite employees button.
  4. In the Invite employees to organization dialog, add the email addresses of all the employees you want to invite.
  5. Send the invite(s).

    When your employees accept the invitation, they are joining your company in the service and they will get the access rights your company is entitled to.

NOTE! If you cannot access the Tekla Online Admin Tool and you are the main user in your company, please contact your local Tekla Area Office / Tekla Reseller or your Account Manager for more information.

#67675 How do I recognize staff on the Forum?

Posted by Jonna Laitinen on 10 May 2016 - 10:31 AM

In our recent Tekla Discussion Forum user survey we asked how we could improve the Forum, and one of the suggestions that community had was to improve the visibility of the support staff on the Forum by use of avatars or something similar.

We've added now a staff icon under the profile image of all the Forum users who are Forum Moderators, Tekla Resellers, Trimble Solutions or Trimble Regional Office staff.

I hope this makes it easier to spot us out there.

#68697 Trimble is following the US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

Posted by admin on 16 June 2016 - 07:20 AM

Trimble is following the US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, also called US GAAP, adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).


In US GAAP, there are certain principles for revenue recognition.


In practice, the revenue recognition principles mean that employees, working for a company following the US GAAP principles, cannot reveal specified information regarding future plans, ongoing development or upcoming releases, features or launch of new products.


Employees are allowed to inform customers about ongoing fixing of defects related to software features which were working in a previous software release.


Employees are not allowed to discuss development regarding defects found in the latest software release.


If such information is provided to potential/current customers of the company, the revenue of the purchase can be recognized only when all the items have been delivered to the customer including the shared new update/upgrade or functionality.

#97174 How do I find content on the Forum?

Posted by Jonna Laitinen on 23 August 2018 - 02:22 PM

* Search for options and Search limitations

There are multiple search options available for finding content. The Quick Search can be used by typing your keywords into the quick-search bar at the top of any page and pressing the ‘Search’ button. There are some limitations when searching words that are 3 characters or less. For example, to find all topics with the word ‘PDF’ on them, type ‘PDF*’ on the Quick Search box.


Next to the Quick Search bar, you can click the cog icon to access Advanced Search. Advanced search brings you multiple options to define your search

  • Use the ‘Find words’ field to enter the keywords to search for. The same limitation with the word length applies - use wildcards at the end of the word that has three characters or less.

  • ‘Find author’ " field can be used to find content from a specific user. Note that the author’s name has to be exact spelling, and the full username.

  • The ‘Find by date’ option allows you to restrict the results to content added between particular dates. This is particularly useful if you are looking for older content, as the Forum search will only return the first 250 hits that meet your search criteria. By using the ‘Find by date’ you can search for older content that would not otherwise be shown in the search results.

  • ‘Find in forum’ allows you to restrict your results to content within particular forums. You can select multiple options by holding the Ctrl key on your keyboard and clicking on your options.


You may have noticed that when you are viewing a particular topic, or a particular forum, that the search bar changes from ‘Search Forum’ to ‘Search This Topic’ - this Inline Search feature allows you to search through the current topic without getting search results for other areas of the forum. Click on the ‘Search This Topic’ to change the Search section to ‘Forums’ to search from the entire Forum.


The Forum search options, the Quick Search, Advanced Options and Inline Search are all described on the Forum Help, along with other useful information. You can also access Help from the ‘Help’ link at the very bottom of the Forum page.


* Sorting the Search results

Search results are by default sorted according to "Last update time", not according to how many times the keyword was found in the topic. You can also choose to sort the results by:

  • ‘Title’, the keyword is included in title

  • ‘Replies’, sorts the topics by number of replies to the topic,  or

  • ‘Views’, which sorts the topics based on the number of times the post has been viewed

If you still can’t find what you are looking for, post your question on the Forum so that Community can help by answering your question, or by pointing you to relevant topics if there are such available.


* How can I find my own content

Access your Forum profile by clicking on your username at the top right corner, and then click ‘My content’. You can use ‘My content’ to list the posts that you have made. You can also search for your content using the Find author functionality described above


* What if I still haven't found what I’m looking for?

Maybe you're not alone. Let us help you! It’s possible that the forum does not yet contain the information in the format you are trying to find it - or maybe it’s there but you just haven’t found the right keyword. You can ask a question,  follow ongoing discussions, read the forum threads and participate in the discussion. If you post your question, there is probably someone who knows something related to the issue if that information is available on the forum.

#67672 How do I get an award on the Forum?

Posted by Jonna Laitinen on 10 May 2016 - 10:02 AM

In our recent Tekla Discussion Forum user survey we received some great feedback from forum users. One of the suggestions to improve the Forum was for us to give recognition for those forum members who contribute by helping other users by answering to their questions. 


In order to give recognition to the active members of the community, we utilize the built-in 'Suggest Solution' Forum feature. When you ask a question, and receive an answer, you can mark the post that helped you to resolve the problem. Every time you mark a post as best answer, it counts towards the next award level of the person who posted that helpful answer. Our moderator team will give out the awards four times a year, and the first batch of users with most posts marked as answers were given out today.


In addition in the end of the year, the most helpful user will be awarded with the Most Helpful User 2016 award. 


We've also got an award category for those staff members who have provided a solution (posts labeled as 'Suggested Solution') to 50+ questions since the new Forum launched. Those forum members have received the Support Expert award.


You click the link to view all the award categories or navigate to categories page through the Awards tab next to 'Forums' and 'Members', and see who all have been awarded.

#60508 How do I get rid of the ID number in my display name?

Posted by Rune Backman on 03 November 2015 - 09:50 AM

The display name is automatically generated based on your first name + last name in your Tekla Online profile unless you define something else.


If your name is equal to the name of someone else (First name Last name) who has already logged in to the forum, the ID number will automatically be added to your display name on the forum like this First name Lastname (12345).


There are two possible ways to fix this:

  1. If you know that you might have two profiles on the forum (an old one and the current one you are using), forum administrators can merge your profiles on the forum into one. In that case, please contact us using the Contact Us form.
  2. If your display name is equal to the display name of another user on the forum, please go to your Tekla Online profile, enter a different display name into the Display name field and save the changes. Log out from all Tekla Online services and log in again to the forum, your display name on the forum will be updated with the changes you made to your display name in your Tekla Online profile.

#120749 SMPlugin

Posted by Sergey Semenov on 10 March 2020 - 09:21 AM

Объясню про фильтрацию подробнее. Вот у меня в КМ ферма - это ферма. Она конечно разделена стыками, но в чертежах КМ и в логике КМ - это один элемент. Поэтому она цельной сборкой и у отдельных реальных монтажных единиц нет отдельных атрибутов каких-то.


Вот, например, позвонит мне заказчик и попросит через 10 минут дать ему спецификацию на среднюю треть фермы.


1) Что я сделаю в SMPlugin 1.8? Выделю элементы (примерно 2 минуты) и нажму кнопку (примерно 15 секунд), а затем эксельку просто отправлю экселькой. И через 5 минут заказчик получит то, что ему нужно.

2) Что я сделаю в SMPlugin 2.0? Создам чертеж с этой фермой, пойду добавлю нужным элементам какой-нибудь новый пользовательский атрибут, на чертеже создам фильтр для фильтрации по этому атрибуту, создам чертеж, распечатаю его в PDF. Час? Два? Вполне.

по поводу замечаний по вставке на чертеж:

В следующей версии добавим возможность создание excel-отчета по выбранным объектам (а также по фильтрам и по объектам всей модели).


По поводу обновления чертежа при открытии:

вы можете расчленить отчет, в этом случае он не будет ассоциативным и не будет обновляться при открытии, кроме того, отчет можно будет редактировать вручную.

Перечень известных и неизвестых деталей будет в лог-файле в следующих версиях.


Со средой до 2019i версии новая версия плагина не будет работать без дополнительной настройки objects.inp, Плагин версии 1.x остается на warehouse и будет работать с версиями до 2019i. Среда развивается, в ней появляются улучшения и новый функционал, разработка плагина следует за этой тенденцией.


Сварные профили делятся на пластины как и прежде. Добавлись новые типы профилей, которые делятся на пластины и попадают в отчет: HI, PHI, WI.

#110915 Макрос для задания главной детали сборки

Posted by Alexandr Prokopov on 25 June 2019 - 11:28 AM

Добрый день. Периодически из-за невнимательности проектировщиков или работы некоторых компонентов - tekla переопределяет главную деталь. Интересует возможность в выбранных сборках переназначить главную деталь исходя из самой тяжелой детали в этой сборке (данное условие охватит 90% сборок).  Алгоритм должен выглядеть примерно так - пользователь, запускает макрос, выбирает необходимые ему сборки, алгоритм определяет поочередно состав каждой сборки, находится самый тяжелый элемент (или первый, если детали равны по весу) и назначает главной деталью, осуществляется переход на следующую сборку.

Может есть готовый макрос?

Сегодня сортировал 88 строк руками. Познал, так сказать, метод пузырька. 


1) С удивлением обнаружил, что, несмотря на сортировку в окне плагина, таблица на чертеже все равно остается отсортированной по MARK (аттач 1)


2) А еще нажатие на "сохранить" наверху не сохраняет порядок элементов в таблице.


3) Нигде нет ни слова про высоту шрифта. Сам шрифт настроить могу, высоту его - нет.


4) Двустрочные названия как будто собираются перекрывать линии таблицы (аттач 2)


5) Перенос длинных названий на следующие строки как-то вообще странно работает: одно слово переносится на новую строку таблицы, у него отъедается последний символ, на предыдущей строке остается двустрочность (аттачи 3, 4)

5. Я могу получать свойства чертежа, описанные здесь: https://developer.te...com/api/6/10607. Вопрос только в том, как программа поймет, это пользовательский атрибут или свойство чертежа. Придумать какой-то синтаксис? Насколько критичен этот вопрос? Можно ли всё-таки обойтись пользовательскими атрибутами?


Теперь список чертежа можно подстроить под себя, в новых версиях (с 2018i). А раньше можно было только вывести пользовательские атрибуты чертежа. Но это было не удобно, просто потому что они шли в конце и никак нельзя было поменять их со стандартными столбцами местами. Поэтому так исторически сложилось, что 99% используют стандартные поля для всех задач, просто потому что они НА ВИДУ и не нужно скроллить вбок:



Заголовок 1

Заголовок 2

Заголовок 3


Обычно список чертежей выглядит примерно так, сборная солянка под конкретные задачи:



И самое главное ПОИСК. Поиск не работает с атрибутами, которые не выведены в столбцы. Т.е., если я их не вижу, нет такого столбца, а атрибут заполнен, я не найду чертеж. Поправьте меня, если я не прав. А как тогда работать со списком чертежей? Чертежей сотни, постоянно изменения, что-то нужно быстро найти, отфильтровать, отсортировать, массово перебить и изменить. Поэтому и в работе стандартные поля.


Отсюда и главный вопрос, почему не вывести в диспетчер документов эти атрибуты? В новых версиях это бы выглядело логично:



Возможно, что в новых версиях люди решат отказаться от стандартных полей и переделать все свои шаблоны, но я в это мало верю.
