Is it possible to import CAD drawings to RFEM and to convert the drawing into an RFEM model?


Importing DXF files, for example, From AutoCAD is possible.

Lines of the DXF file are also generated as lines in RFEM. Thus, the geometry can be created completely by the import. The imported lines can then be used for modeling as surface boundaries or member axes.

There is also the option of a direct import. The descriptions of the interfaces with Tekla Structures and Autodesk AutoCAD Revit are available in the manuals under the Interfaces. A list of Supported Interfaces/Program Versions is listed in the update reports for each version. For this, it is always necessary to check the update report of the first version (for ex RFEM 5-20- 01 ).

A detailed overview of the interfaces and the BIM-oriented planning is available on our website Building Information Modeling (BIM) .

In addition, there are already numerous webinars about BIM that you can watch on our website as video.
