7.2 Graphic Printout

In RFEM, you can transfer every image shown in the work window to the printout report. Alternatively, you can send it directly to a printer. Hence, you can also prepare the reinforcements and design criteria shown on the RFEM model for the printout report.

Printing graphics is described in chapter 10.2 of the RFEM manual.

To print the current reinforcement graphic, select on the menu

File → Print Graphic

or use the corresponding button in the toolbar.

The dialog box is described in chapter 10.2 of the RFEM manual.

Use the drag-and-drop function to move a graphic within the report to another position.

To retroactively adjust a graphic in the printout report, right-click it in the report navigator. The Properties option in the shortcut menu opens the Graphic Printout dialog box where you can adjust the settings.

Use the Edit option in the shortcut menu to change the view (angle of view, object and value display, etc.) in the RFEM work window.

The General tab of the Graphic Printout dialog box offers the possibility to save the graphic as a 3D PDF (see Figure 7.5). Thus, the reinforcement representations and results graphics can be displayed interactively even without RFEM.
