Add a thumbnail image to your plug-in

Updated: 31 Oct 2017

Usually thumbnail images in the Applications & components catalog show you a typical situation where the component can be used.

To add a thumbnail for the plug-in:

  1. Create an image.
  2. Name it et_element_<pluginname>.
  3. Save it in .bmp format to ProgramData\Tekla Structures\<version>\bitmaps folder.

Note: If you are using an older version of Tekla Structures, the bitmaps folder may be located at Program Files\Tekla Structures\<version>\nt.
