A curved pane cannot be designed in RF‑GLASS. Why?


When modeling a glass pane, especially an insulating glass pane, it is necessary in RFEM to pay special attention to the boundary lines that must consist of four lines only.
If possible, you should avoid the division of lines since the calculation cannot be performed anymore. In that case, the corresponding warning message will be displayed before the calculation.
If special intermediate nodes are required on the line, make sure that they do not divide the original line when creating them.
However, if the line is divided anyhow the structure can be restored by using the "Delete Node and Merge Joined Members" command.
In exceptional cases, you can deactivate using the layered mesh in the details of the composition. This option has been specifically implemented for double-curved panes.
