Results from a survey undertaken with our customers showed that Tekla is a well-used software and is a popular choice for designers in the construction industry.
Macalloy has been working closely with Trimble to develop BIM models for our tension rod and compression strut range for use with Tekla software.
This is a great development for our customers, as Macalloy BIM models offer enhanced functionality enabling engineers and designers to incorporate additional components into their building designs.
These products include the Macalloy cross-coupler, that allows two tension rods to pass within the same plane, and the Macalloy standard compression strut and architectural compression strut.
These are new developments within the Tekla softaware, another example of Macalloy’s innovative approach offering products and services that our competitors don’t currently offer.
There are many advantages of this increased functionality, but a primary one, is engineers and designers now have the ability to specify the material type for both the tension rod and compression strut range, from the start of the design, providing the estimated weight in the product report.
