RF-LINK Import *.step, *.iges, *.sat
With the RF-LINK add-on module (not contained in RFEM), it is possible to import data in the STEP, IGES, or ACIS formats. These file formats are mainly used in mechanical engineering, allowing for a transfer of model geometry in the form of boundary lines and surfaces.
To import model files available in one of the mentioned formats, use the menu option
- File → Import.
In the Extra Formats dialog section, you can define the relevant file format:
- Standard for the Exchange of Product Model Data (*.stp, *.step)
- Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (*.iges)
- Standard Acis Text Format (*.sat)
In the Import (*.sat, *.step, *.iges) dialog tab, you can specify more detailed settings.
The export of RFEM files into the STEP, IGES, or SAT formats is currently not available.
