The Most Advanced Structural BIM Software


Design, detail, fabricate and erect all structures on time and on budget. Create, manage and share multi-material 3D models of any type of structure regardless of the file size or complexity. The constructable building information is accurate, consistent and always up-to-date.


Working with detailed Tekla Structures models also supports your construction coordination, quantity and cost estimation, scheduling and sequencing.


Tekla software portfolio covers the entire workflow from conceptual planning and engineering design, detailing and fabrication management, all the way to site operations and maintenance.


Light Metal Framing with Tekla Structures


Tekla Structures is ideal for modeling all materials including light steel structures (aka light metal frame / light gauge steel / cold rolled steel / metal studs). Design and plan all building elements within the one model, ensuring that all the data is accurate, up-to-date and easily accessible.


Framing applications and links for machinery are available in the Tekla Warehouse. You can additionally create your own bespoke tools and components on top of Tekla Structures.


  • Achieve considerable time savings and cut costs by
    • precise detailing
    • automated drawing production
    • output to light metal framing machinery
    • enabling efficient, right-first-time installation of elements on-site.


Additionally you can keep all parties informed on the real status of the project with Trimble Connect or Tekla Model Sharing.
