12.5.1 Direct Data Exchange
Direct Data Exchange
RFEM provides an interface to software programs developed by the Dlubal company. Input data of all previous RFEM versions can be imported without problems. Files of the framework program RSTAB can also be directly opened in RFEM and surface or solid elements can be added. Conversely, you can also open RFEM 5 files in RSTAB 8.
RFEM has a direct connection to CAD programs from Tekla Structures and AutoCAD (but not for LT versions). With it, you can use the advantages of BIM (Building Information Modeling) with RFEM to exchange data models for digital planning purposes.
To start the direct data exchange, select the menu option
- File → Import or
- File → Export
or use the toolbar buttons shown on the left.
The buttons in the Export/Import toolbar have the following functions:
Direct import from Tekla Structures
Direct export to Tekla Structures
Direct import from AutoCAD
Direct export to AutoCAD
Descriptions of the interfaces with Tekla Structures and Autodesk Revit are available for download on our website (only in German).
