How to Create a Bolt in Tekla Structures

Tekla Structures is a building information modeling software able to model structures that incorporate different kinds of building materials, including steel, concrete, timber and glass. However it is widely used for the detailing of structural drawing. 

In this Blog, we will describe the stepwise process of creating bolts in Tekla Structures (TS).

Bolts are needed to join two or more plates or surfaces. As we do it in practical, in the same

way we do it in software.

Steps to create bolts:

  1. Go to plate under the steel section

  1. Model at least two plates. 

  1. Go to Bolt under Steel

  1. Select both plates

  1. Find the midpoint of top slab 

  1. Join from one end to other end

  1. Bolt will appear

  1. Define the bolt

  1. Bolts will appear accordingly

  1. Now you can position your bolt

  1. To check you can switch to top view
