The DXF file format is the most commonly used exchange program in computer-aided design (CAD). The following overview shows the exchange options using DXF, which are applicable for RFEM/RSTAB.
Lines can be imported as lines (RFEM) or as members. The names of layers are transferred as cross-section descriptions and the first material is assigned from the predefined materials. However, if the program recognizes a material or cross-section listed in the Dlubal database according to the layer name, these will be transferred as well.
Members are exported from RFEM/RSTAB as lines. The line layers include information concerning the cross-sections and materials used in the program. In addition to the entire model including FE mesh, it is possible to export the numbering managed by the navigator.
- I would like to export a result by using isolines or isobands and import them later again. Is it possible?
- I would like to obtain the reinforcement results (As,-z(top), As,+z(bottom), asw,V,stirrup) for a beam from my RFEM or RSTAB file and import them into AutoCAD. With the "Export" → "DXF" dialog box, I can only read out the geometry. Is there any option for this?
- 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.
