Tekla 3D BIM Software

Tekla develops model-based software products for the architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) market, for local government use and for power companies. These products provide users with state-of-the-art features and functionality for creating, analyzing, and changing model-based information. Feasible implementation of the products is made possible by Tekla’s own technology platform and architecture.

Tekla applications manage large amounts of complex information. This information has a multi-dimensional geometric or locational component. It is not, however, managed through a drawing or map or 3D visual approach; instead, the information is stored in a data model.

The advantages of a data model approach are obvious: data model evolution, multi-user access, availability in other applications, and other important requirements are easy to fulfill. Since sufficient support for the geometry or location component of the information is not readily available in data model tools, Tekla has gone through a great deal of its own development in this area.
