Tekla Structures System Requirements

Tekla Structures is a building information modeling (BIM) software application used for structural engineering and detailing. The system requirements for Tekla Structures vary depending on the version you are using and the complexity of your projects.

Best Laptops for Tekla Structures

Here are the minimum and recommended system requirements for Tekla Structures:

Minimum requirements:

  • Operating system: Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i5 CPU 2.5 GHz or AMD equivalent
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Hard disk: 200 GB, HDD
  • Graphics card: Nvidia Quadro P2000 or AMD Radeon Pro WX 3100 or equivalent
  • Display resolution: 1920 x 1080

Recommended requirements:

  • Operating system: Windows 11 or Windows 10 (64-bit)
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 3 GHz or higher, or equivalent AMD
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM or more
  • Hard disk: 1 TB, SSD
  • Graphics card: Nvidia Quadro RTX 3070 or AMD Radeon Pro W6800 or equivalent
  • Display resolution: 3840 x 2160

Additional notes:

  • Tekla Structures requires a 64-bit operating system.
  • An SSD is highly recommended for improved performance.
  • The graphics card requirements are for running Tekla Structures with the Tekla Bimsight viewer. If you do not need to use the Bimsight viewer, you can use a less powerful graphics card.
  • Tekla Structures supports multi-core processors. More cores will improve performance.

Tekla Structures system requirements windows 11

To run Tekla Structures on Windows 11, you need:

  • A decent computer: Aim for an Intel Core i7 processor, 16+ GB RAM, and a 1 TB SSD.
  • Good graphics: A dedicated graphics card with 4+ GB of memory is recommended.
  • Some software: Make sure you have .NET Framework 4.8, Visual C++ 2013/2015-2019 redistributables, and Edge WebView2 Runtime installed.

Remember: This is the minimum. For complex models, consider upgrading your hardware.

Bonus: Ensure your computer is 64-bit and you have admin privileges to install Tekla Structures. An internet connection is also needed for activation and licensing.

Tekla Structures system requirements windows 10


  • Windows 10 64-bit (latest update)
  • 16+ GB RAM
  • 1 TB hard drive (SSD preferred)
  • Intel i7 3 GHz CPU (or similar AMD)
  • Graphics card like NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060

Bonus for smooth performance:

  • 32+ GB RAM for complex models
  • Two monitors

Additional notes:

  • Keep Windows and drivers updated.
  • Close other programs while using Tekla.
  • Dedicated graphics card recommended.

Tekla Structures 2024 system requirements

Operating system:

  • Windows 11
  • Windows 10 (64-bit)


  • Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 3 GHz or higher, or equivalent AMD


  • 16 GB or more

Hard disk:

  • 1 TB SSD

Graphics card:

  • Two monitor support, such as NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060/3070

Tekla Structures 2023 system requirements

Operating system:

  • Windows 11
  • Windows 10 (64-bit)


  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 CPU 3 GHz or higher, or equivalent AMD
  • Memory: 16 GB or more
  • Hard disk: 1 TB, SSD recommended
  • Graphics card: Two monitor support, such as NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060/3070

Other requirements:

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x64) 12.0.40664
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable (x64) 14.32.31326
  • Microsoft Edge WebView2 Runtime Redistributable (x64) 106.0.1370.42

Please note that these are the minimum requirements. For optimal performance, Tekla recommends using a computer that exceeds these requirements.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • Tekla Structures is a resource-intensive application. If you are planning on working with large or complex models, you will need a computer with more powerful hardware.
  • Tekla Structures supports both DirectX and OpenGL rendering. DirectX rendering mode is generally recommended for better performance, but OpenGL may be required for some older graphics cards.
  • Tekla Structures requires a high-speed internet connection for some features, such as online collaboration and BIMobject Browser.
