Requirements

In this course, you will learn how to create an Intelligent Custom Component. The course will show you how to create different type of Custom Component like, custom component pat, custom component detail and custom component connection.

Custom components

You can define customized connections, parts, seams, and details for your project. These are called custom components. You can use custom components in the same way as any Tekla Structures system component. By editing the custom components you can create intelligent, parametric custom components that automatically adjust to changes in the model.

When to use

Define a custom component if you cannot find a predefined system component that meets all your needs. Custom components are useful especially if you need to create a large number of complex model objects and copy them across several projects.

Benefits

Once you define and store a custom component in the Applications & components catalog, you can easily access it from the catalog and use it in another location in the same model. If you must modify the custom component, you only need to make the changes once. When you save the changes, they will be automatically applied to all copies of that custom component in the model. You can also import and export custom components as .uel files between models and share the custom components with your colleagues, or store the custom components in a model template so that they are available with each new model that is based on the used template.
