The “Cylindrical plate” tool allows drawing curved cylindrical
You can access the tool at the “Plate” drop-down menu. Let’s
examine it, by creating two standard plates and uniting them into one employing
Present Tekla Structures version is not available on the “Create
cylindrical bent plate” tool
Create a plate with dimensions of 1000x1000mm. Choose an arbitrary profile
Rotate the view in the way to copy the plate vertically by the Z-axis:
select the initial plate, press Ctrl+C and drag it at 400mm vertically.
Make sure the orthogonal regime is switched on.
Select the “Create cylindrical bent plate” tool.
In the dialog window appeared, indicate the snapping type “By Faces”,
If all operations have been carried out correctly, then you have got an
Note that initially, we had two plates as two separate objects.
After using the “Create cylindrical bent plate” tool, the
Let’s exercise using the tool by activating the “By Parts”
Allocate the second plate perpendicularly to the initial one.
To create the second plate, select the top points of the initial object
As a result you will get two perpendicular not intersecting with each
Go to the “Plate” tool drop-down menu and select the “Create
cylindrical bent plate” option, activate the “By parts”
snapping type, and set the radius value of 50 mm into the adjacent box.
If you carried out all the operations correctly, then your results are
In practice, this manipulation is substituted with the M-beam profiles.
The object’s parameters are similar to standard plate variables.
