Check here the Tekla Developer Awards 2020 FAQ

Where can I submit my application for the competition?

You can find the link to a online form here: https://www.tekla.com/bim-awards/developer-awards.

Can I submit an Tekla application I created some time ago?

Yes. We do not check when the application was originally created or if it existed in Tekla Warehouse before the competition.

Of course it is recommended to create something innovative and new to increase the chances that your application impresses the awards jury and will receive more votes.

How many applications I can submit?

There is no limit to how many applications you can submit. Choose your best applications to submit.

Can I submit an Tekla application that is created for a specific environment?

Sure! You can participate Tekla Developer Awards competition with a  tool that uses standards specific to a country or a region.

Which Tekla Software APIs do I have to use?

You will need to use at least one of the Tekla Software APIs available in Tekla Developer Center:

  • Tekla Open API (of Tekla Structures)
  • Tekla EPM Open API
  • Trimble Connect API
  • Tekla Tedds API
  • Tekla Structural Designer Open API

Can I use other than Tekla APIs too?

Sure, it is up to you. You may mix Tekla API with other APIs to create the required outcome.

Where I can publish my app source code?

You can open for example a GitHub account and host your source code there. Alternatively, you can include it in the information package.

Do I have to publish my app in Tekla Warehouse?

It is recommended but not mandatory. You may provide just link to the required information package. Note that if you cannot upload your application to Tekla Warehouse for jury and voters to test, the meaning of high quality video, images and other material is even more emphasized.

Can we participate as a team?

Yes. You can create your Tekla application alone or do it as a team.
