Markus Baumgärtel Add-on Modules RFEM RSTAB SHAPE-THIN

I would like to use a cross-section, which does not exist in the cross-section library of RSTAB and RFEM. Is there a way to get the cross-section?


With the SHAPE-THIN add-on module (thin-walled cross-sections) and SHAPE-MASSIVE add-on module (thick-walled cross-sections), it is possible to model almost any cross-sections which are entered graphically, in tables, or by importing a DXF file.

For SHAPE-THIN and SHAPE-MASSIVE, there is a possibility to create connection to RFEM and RSTAB. Thus, the cross-sections can be imported into RSTAB and RFEM, calculated, and designed in the add-on modules.
