Powerful and Capable Software

“I think the software is so powerful and capable that people will really value its power when they get properly introduced to it.”

Customizable GUI for Individual Adjustment

A model is created in the graphical user interface characteristic for CAD programs, using tables, or in combination of both ways. Extensive context menus facilitate data input. Since the structural model is photorealistically visualised, you can directly check the data entered.

  1. Shortcut menu in Navigator for entering a new surface

    Intuitive Graphical User-Interface

    A structure is created in the graphical user interface typical for CAD programs or by using tables. Right-clicking on graphical or navigator objects activates the shortcut menu, which facilitates creating or editing such objects. The user interface is operated intuitively so the structure and loading objects can be created in a minimal amount of time.

  2. Office 2007 Black Style

    Multilingual Program Operation

    It is possible to operate the program in the following languages: English, German, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

    The user‑interface design of RFEM/RSTAB can be customized with any of the nine different styles of graphical user interface (for example Office 2007 Blue, Silver, Aqua, or Black).

  3. New Project Navigator - Views

    Project Navigator - Views

    Project Navigator - Views allows you to easily generate various views in a few simple steps. Moreover, you can save and open them again at any time.

  4. Configuration Manager

    User-Defined Configurations

    Menus and toolbars are freely configurable. Thus, a user-defined arrangement of frequently used functions is possible. Default settings of the program can be restored with a mouse click. Tables, navigators, and toolbars can also be arranged in any order and docked as well.

    In addition, the configuration manager provides the option of creating user-defined display properties and toolbars, which can be saved as a separate configuration.

  5. Setting display properties

    Photorealistic Visualization

    The photorealistic visualization of a model in 3D rendering provides a direct check of the input data. Display colors can be freely adjusted and saved separately for the screen and printout.

  6. Display of object colors sorted by cross-sections

    Display Properties

    It is possible to assign different colors to various objects of a structure in order to make the rendering display of the structure more clearly arranged.

    The following categories are available: Materials, Cross‑Sections, Member Types, Member Hinges, Surface Types - Geometry, Surface Types - Stiffness, Surface Thickness, Solid Types, Surface Sides, and User‑Defined Visibilities.

  7. Guidelines (axes) and dimensions

    Displaying and Hiding Objects

    It is possible to specifically display or hide various objects such as nodes, members, supports, and others. The model can be dimensioned by using lines, arcs, inclinations, or height elevations. Freely created guidelines, sections, and comments facilitate the input and evaluation. You can also display or hide guide objects individually.

  8. Adjusting units and decimal places

    Global Unit Settings

    A global dialog box manages the units of input data, loads, and results in RFEM/RSTAB as well as in all add‑on modules.

    It is possible to save the settings and import it again later. That way you can use different sections in steel and reinforced concrete structures, for example.
