Customize Grid

Customize Grid I think that the power of customizing the module ‘Select’ windows is the most overlooked aspect of the program.  We are so busy with learning to work or working in the program that we completely skip taking a closer look at how customizing a grid may help us out.  As a trainer, I often get questions, like: "How do I get a fabricated weight total report for the AISC?" or "How do I use this program to get a win/loss report in Estimating?".  To answer these questions, I show off the 'Customize Grid' feature while I am working with them, but I thought that it would be helpful here

Reporting in Estimating

I wanted to take this opportunity to discuss Estimating reports.  When I train new Tekla EPM users, viewing and using reports is the best way to gain program trust. Those using Estimating in Tekla EPM for the first time may feel lost and, frankly, a bit fearful.  Using a new system, is not comfortable, ever.  I was one of those who developed my own trusted estimating spreadsheet, back from the time of programs like Lotus 1-2-3 and Symphony, then Excel as soon as it arrived in the market.  I do understand what it takes to make the switch and gain confidence with using this program.  I can tell

Error Message 1062

There are two MySQL error 1062 Messages.  The one I am in reference to here reads:   MySQL error 1062 – “Duplicate entry "12064" for key 1 INSERT INTO UserSessions (UserID, IPAddress, User, ConnectionID, TimeLogOn)VALUES (10, 'localhost', name of user@computer’s IPAddress, 8, date & time stamp")” The solution reads: There are two different MySQL error 1062 messages.  If the error message makes reference to “UserTables” or “UserSessions” then you will need to do the following.  If the user cannot log into the program you have to manually repair the issue.  This action is done on the server

Tekla EPM Plugin

The Tekla EPM Plugin (formerly FabSuite TME) allows for seamless communication between Tekla EPM and Tekla Structures. The Tekla EPM Plugin integrates with Tekla Structures allowing you to: Export the Tekla Structures model into a compressed EPM XML file. This single file contains the Drawings, Revisions, Bill of Materials, User-Defined Attributes, CNC Files, and Drawing Files. Import an EPM XML file into Tekla Structures to update the model with the current status information and colorize the model based on those statuses. Installation The Tekla EPM Plugin supports and is installed with

Using Production Control Jobs with Trimble Connect

Using Production Control Jobs with Trimble Connect Note: It is recommended to start your Production Control job with the EPM Plugin XML export from Tekla Structures. The XML includes GUIDs, unique identifiers that will match those in the IFC model. The EPM plugin (formerly FabSuite TME) will be available for download from the Tekla Warehouse. Production Control can share many statuses with Connect, as seen in the "Status Sharing Setup" section above. For example, whether production has been started or completed: Or status in various stations: Or shipping status: With the Multiple Actions

Adding the IFC Model to Trimble Connect

Adding the IFC Model to Trimble Connect It's recommended to add the IFC in Trimble Connect rather than Tekla EPM for the purpose of managing model versions. As new models are added in Trimble Connect, the latest (with the same name) will always take precedent. If models are added from Tekla EPM they will have different names, and will be seen as different models instead of different versions of the same model in Trimble Connect. In Trimble Connect, if you're in a (blank) model view, click the back arrow to go to the project window. Click the "Add File" icon, then open the IFC model from the
