Tekla - SAP2000

I’m trying to export Tekla elements and importing into SAP.

I have a Tekla Model with Imperial units (ft-in) and exporting using Tekla connector and after importing in SAP - I’m not getting correct units and Tekla profiles as well.

Is there something to look or which I can refer regarding Units and profiles in Tekla and SAP using Speckle connectors?

This is definitely something for us to look at. Our current initiative is across the structural connectors generally to support workflows but this appears to be a bug.

What are you seeing happen with profiles?

SAP is assigning loaded profile sections to random members and not the required & correct from Tekla.

Thanks we’ll take a look!

Unit System -

I tried exporting elements using different units but it looks like the connector is set to export for mm unit only.
If you export in ft or inches - It is multiplying with the mm conversion factor and making super long geometries.

Profile -

Tekla connector is reading the profiles correct in Speckle viewer but when exporting in SAP, its assigning the available frame section in SAP to all the elements - Looks like some profile mapping bug.

Other than these issues, I think everything looks pretty good :slight_smile:
