Tekla Structures, has went way beyond what I could have ever hoped for when creating this integration. With their development they have made it 100% possible to capture all structural and miscellaneous items in a model, generate a report that will import into the Steel Erection Bid Wizard and give you an erection price in a matter of minutes. And whats most important you have the ability to do 100% customization to what the task are called in the Bid Wizard as well as in the Tekla model. Which puts you in complete control!
This opens a world of possibilities when it comes to getting an erection price for a design build project. You will now be able to know immediately, how changes to structure effects erection cost. It will also allow a fabricator to very quickly check erection prices that they are receiving from erectors with very little effort on there part.
For those Steel Erectors out there that have embraced technology to its fullest they can now use a Tekla model to compile there erection prices and no matter the size of project can generate a price in minutes based on what is in the model.
This video shows the ‘Export To Steel Erection Bid Wizard’ extension which creates a report from Tekla Structures that can be imported into the Steel Erection Bid Wizard software.
The extension is available in the Tekla Warehouse to get it you can CLICK HERE

This new integration is powerful… beyond measure for those who embrace the direction our industry is headed.
