Data Exchange with Dietrich's
Import to RFEM/RSTAB
The CAD/BIM model type must be used to import the IFC file to RFEM/RSTAB. The Project Navigator offers further information about the individual IFC objects besides the graphical display of the model.
Conversion of IFC Objects
All objects are saved as "SweptSolid" by the optimized Dietrich's export. This allows the best possible conversion to members as well as surfaces.
The specified thickness of wall objects as well as the cross-section and material of member objects is considered during the conversion. You can download the corresponding conversion file below.
- Reading and writing access to structural data, load case data, load and result combinations, and calculation results
- External control of calculation
- Possibility to open and edit available models or to create new models
- Access to all results such as deformations, internal forces, and support reactions
- Ability to intercept possible errors using error messages
- Access to control elements as well as results of the following programs:
- RF-/STEEL EC3
- RX-TIMBER Glued-Laminated Beam
- RF-/TIMBER Pro
- RF-/DYNAM Pro
- I have imported an IFC file via the CAD/BIM interface. How does the conversion of IFC elements into Members/Surfaces/Solids work?
- Which interfaces are available for export?
- Which programs can I use to calculate and design power plants?
- I am trying to import a model from cadwork. Unfortunately, I cannot correctly transfer the cross-sections from cadwork to RFEM. Do you have any tip?
- When importing a model directly from AutoCAD, the shape of the "spline" is sometimes incorrect.
