To enable incorporation of ASDO tie rod systems in your 3D models - other than Tekla or bocad (you find separately) - we can provide you with the required tie bar files on request as 'step' or 'dwg' files

These files contain all tension rod components for a specific size in a tie bar assembly. The only changes required are to system lengths and hole angles for circular plates. Please consider the limiting tie rod lengths and angles as mentioned in our ASDO tie bar brochure.

Compression rod systems are not currently included in the 3D files but we are happy to provide these on request given the basic data, eg nominal size, working load, tension bar system length (pin to pin) and the tube dimensions.

For questions and suggestions please contact: Carlo.Fritz@anker.de
