Tekla Structures configurations

Tekla Structures online licenses are purchased as a recurring or fixed-term subscription. The license details, including renewal information, can be viewed in the Tekla Online Admin Tool. The licenses unlock the Tekla Structures CarbonTekla Structures Graphite, or Tekla Structures Diamond configurations, which progressively enable more product features. Also special student and developer configurations are available. Note that legacy configurations are still used with on-premises licensing.

  • Tekla Structures Diamond is for detailing & production information.
  • Tekla Structures Graphite is for modeling & design documentation.
  • Tekla Structures Carbon is for viewing & collaboration.

Our documentation covers the content of the Tekla Structures Diamond configuration, so you may not have access to all the described features. If your organization has licenses for different configurations, you can select between them when you start Tekla Structures.
