Floor Analysis as Detached 2D Structure
Using the Building Model add-on, you can view all flooes of a 3D building as a separate 2D structural system. To do this, you define floor sets.
The support forces are transferred to the underlying walls and columns for load transfer.

How to Work Effectively with the Building Model Add-on in RFEM 6
Building Model is one of the special solution add-ons in RFEM 6. It is an advantageous tool for modeling, with which building stories can be created and manipulated easily. Building Model can be activated at the beginning of the modeling process and afterwards.

- I received an error message “Surface of incompatible type... (Surface in upper plane of building story must be of ‘Load transfer’ type)” when running the calculation. What is the reason?
- How do I create a splice connection in the Steel Joints add-on?
- Can I exclude bolt threads from the shear planes according to AISC 360-16 in the Steel Joints Add-on?
The structural analysis program RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM 6 is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program can also design combined structures as well as solid and contact elements.
The RFEM Building Model add-on allows you to define and manipulate a building by means of stories. The stories can be adjusted in many ways afterwards. Information about the stories and the entire model (center of gravity) is displayed in tables and graphics.
