Layout marking

Advanced Scribing for Tekla - ConstruSteelTo reduce failure costs, improve quality, and speed up production, ConstruSteel provides Advanced Scribing software for steel fabricators, steel suppliers and steel service centres. Advanced Scribing is a unique Tekla Structures plug-in for scribing / layout marking steel for the structural steel industry. By adding your own defined scribing / layout marking on selected or all steel profiles in your 3D BIM model, the production data (.nc1 files) for CNC-machines is updated automatically.

The steel marking (partial or full contour marking of steel beams, bars etc.) will be engraved by a scribing or layout-marking tool on the machine. A drilling machine can also be used to place pop-marks to indicate the position of parts that need to be welded on to the scribed steel profile.
