Automatically Generating Surfaces from Members
Tips & Tricks
RFEM allows you to automatically generate surfaces from modeled members. This has the advantage that the surfaces thicknesses of, for example, a steel section are automatically generated.
Furthermore, extended settings allow you to apply an FE mesh refinement to generated surfaces or generate additional surfaces at the face of a member. This automatic function allows you to quickly model cross‑sections as FEM model.
