Create Surfaces from Cells
Tips & Tricks
If you have imported a DXF file in RFEM or you need to add a membrane to an existing member structure, you can use the function “Tools” → “Generate Model - Surfaces” → “Surfaces from Cells,” and thus quickly create planar surfaces.
The program automatically detects closed outlines by straight lines and provides the option to supply them with surfaces separately or using the selection box.
For surfaces with many corner points, you should increase the maximum number of cell nodes in the detail settings.
