RF-LINK Import *.step, *.iges, *.sat

With the RF-LINK add-on module (not contained in RFEM), it is possible to import data in the STEP, IGES, or ACIS formats. These file formats are mainly used in mechanical engineering, allowing for a transfer of model geometry in the form of boundary lines and surfaces.

To import model files available in one of the mentioned formats, use the menu option

    • File → Import.
