What is interoperability?
Interoperability is often seen as the missing link between different software systems. It
allows best-of-breed applications to share common objects, geometry and properties
between applications. Interoperability is a process, which allows diverse systems and
organizations to work together. This allows common 3D models to be built or information
and geometry defined in one system to be used in another. An example of this would be a 3D
structural frame from a modeling application being transferred and used by an Analysis &
Design system. Another example would be an Architectural model being used within a
structural modeling system.

Industry standards
There are many industry standard file transfer formats. The principle ones supported by Tekla
Structures are IFC, CIS/2, DSTV, SDNF, DGN, DXF, DWG, IGES, and STEP. Older formats are also
included. For a tighter integration, you can link to Tekla Structures using the Tekla Open API
technology.
The file name extension normally informs the user which format it is based upon. If you do
not know what format it is, or the file does not import, then you will need to open the file in
a text editor to look at the header information, where the file type and the authoring
application is usually noted. With CIS/2 files the authoring application and version number is
sometimes written at the end of the file.
