I performed an export from RSTAB or RFEM to the IFC format. When importing the IFC file to the CAD software, however, nothing is displayed. What could be the reason?
The IFC interface is structured in different areas, the so-called Views. The export from RSTAB/RFEM is performed in StructuralAnalysisView. At the same time, it is possible to transfer the structural model with member elements, concentrated line and member loads, supports as well as support conditions, load cases, etc. Importing an IFC file generated from RSTAB/RFEM is only possible in the third-party software if it also supports StructuralAnalysisView.
IFC, StructuralAnalysisView, CoordinationView
The structural engineering software for design of frame, beam and truss structures, performing linear and nonlinear calculations of internal forces, deformations, and support reactions
Structural engineering software for finite element analysis (FEA) of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, members (beams), solids and contact elements
