Hello Miguel,

In order to export a 3D model from TEKLA Structures to Advance Steel:

- within TEKLA Structures, select all the 3D model (included bolts), then File > Export > CIMSteel > "Design/manufacturing model", then choose "Manufacturing" as "CIS/2 Model Type" and press "Create"

- within Advance Steel, press "Import CIS/2 from TEKLA Structures" icon, select the CIS/2 file to import, then select "XSteel" as Application

Nota: it might happen that a conversion dialog opens - if some sections are not recognized automatically - when you import the 3D model in Advance Steel => just select the corresponding Advance Steel section in the "Section conversion" dialog (it will be saved in a database for later import)

Regards / Philippe
