Background Layers for Including Modifications

Tips & Tricks

Plan changes, even at an advanced stage of planning, or modifications of existing buildings are part of the daily routine of many structural engineers.

The background layer created from an architectural drawing can be inserted at any location in RFEM. In this way, it is possible to quickly include additional or modified openings in ceilings and walls, for example. Background layers can be managed in the Project Navigator. Moreover, you can use several background layers and display or hide them individually.
