DXF Interface

The DXF file format is the most commonly used exchange program in computer-aided design (CAD). The following overview shows the exchange options using DXF, which are applicable for RFEM/RSTAB.

  1. Import

    Lines can be imported as lines (RFEM) or as members. The names of layers are transferred as cross-section descriptions and the first material is assigned from the predefined materials. However, if the program recognizes a material or cross-section listed in the Dlubal database according to the layer name, these will be transferred as well.

  2. Export

    Members are exported from RFEM/RSTAB as lines. The line layers include information concerning the cross-sections and materials used in the program. In addition to the entire model including FE mesh, it is possible to export the numbering managed by the navigator.

  3. Detail settings for isolines


    Another exchange option is to transfer the RFEM/RSTAB results as isolines in a DXF file. For this, you can directly select various elements such as isolines, FE mesh, values, and more.
