Tekla and Hilti together now offer standardized Hilti Anchors and Anchor Channels as custom components in Tekla Structures. This cooperation builds upon the joint venture Intelligent Construction Tools, formed by Trimble and Hilti in 2010.
Tekla, a Trimble company, provides a BIM (building information modeling) software environment that can be shared by contractors, structural engineers, detailers and fabricators of all materials.
“3D design is certainly the long-term tool to improve efficiency and minimize errors in the building process, ‘3D viewing is believing,’” said Oliver Glockner, head of application software and BIM solutions at Hilti. “By providing 3D objects of our industry leading fastening products within Tekla Structures, we continue our commitment to be our customer’s best partner also in the virtual world of BIM.”
Added Risto Raty, executive vice president of Tekla Corporation, “We like the fact that a company like Hilti is introducing BIM to its processes. Joint customers and actions with best-in-class companies such as Hilti give us an even more solid stand in the BIM process and offer increased value for our customers.”
