x_drawer is the program, which itself creates assembly drawings (at Tekla Structures program). Creates all necessary views, cross sections, dimensions, and place it without overlapping. It can work with steel assemblies like beams, columns and braces. The x_drawer produces assembly drawings in several representation styles.
Problem that app solves
Tekla Structures create automatically good assembly drawings only for simple beams / columns / braces. If beam or column will be a little be more complex, Tekla Structures will create wrong assembly drawing (wrong dimensions and not good cross sections)
So, (at my location Russia) it leads to user delete all views (include dimensions and cross section), and create drawing from 'zero' by manually, and of course user will spend a lot of time. This why i made x_drawer.
All drawings has been created automatically without manual editing.
