Tekla Structures: How to Import CAD file of DXF Format || Importing Gridlines

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 a detailing software like Tekla Structures, it is very useful we can import the plan or the gridline of the beam column plane directly, as it helps us to assign the elements of the structure which we are going to make in Tekla Structures. In this blog, we are going to discuss how we can import CAD files saved in DXF format in Tekla Structures. So let's start the step by step procedure.

Step 1: Go to files and Select Import
Step 2: Choose dwg/dxf

Step 3: Browse the dxf file in your computer and click on import

Step 4: Reference lines of your architectural plan will be imported

Step 5: Move the architectural plan and overlap it with the origin of grid lines

Step 6: After a little modification in grid lines you can start modelling in Tekla Structures.
