Import / Export & BIM RFEM RSTAB

Is it possible to save an RFEM file as an RSTAB file?

Answer

RFEM files can not be saved as RSTAB files. However, RFEM files can be opened directly in RSTAB.

In RSTAB, the file type must be set to "RFEM" in the "Open" dialog. The relevant RFEM file can then be selected and opened (see Figure 1).

Furthermore, the RFEM file can be opened via the project manager. To do this, open the "RFEM" tab and select the corresponding project. The relevant file can then be opened in RSTAB by selecting the command "Open with -> RSTAB X.XX" from the context menu (see Figure 2).

Please note that not all functions of RFEM are available in RSTAB (eg element type ARC, SPLINE, etc.). A message box informs you of these elements.
