Selected Tekla Open API classes
This guide includes notes for some of the most commonly used Tekla Open API classes.
The beam's StartPoint and EndPoint properties return values in the current work plane coordinate system.
Offset.Dx is defined using the object's coordinate system. Offset.Dy and Offset.Dz are defined using the current work plane coordinate system.
Before trying to use the offset values it is important to make sure what the current work plane is since these values can be changed depending on the current work plane.
The Picker.PickFace returns the face vertices in the global coordinate system.
The Picker.PickLine returns the points in the current workplane coordinate system.
When using the Solid.intersect method, Solid.Intersect(LineSegment), the line segment must be at least 3.2mm long.
