3D Planning According to BIM
Structural analysis programs by Dlubal Software support planning according to the method of Building Information Modeling (BIM).
This is primarily achieved through the numerous interfaces for data exchange in RSTAB and RFEM.
Microsoft Excel / OpenOffice.org Calc
This interface provides options for data exchange with the following spreadsheet programs:
- Microsoft Excel
- OpenOffice.org Calc
- Applications supporting the CSV file format
Values in tables of the Excel or Calc spreadsheet can be imported to RFEM/RSTAB either individually or all at once. Furthermore, it is possible to transfer formulas prepared for the parameterizable input to RFEM/RSTAB.
All RFEM/RSTAB tables including results can be exported directly to an Excel or Calc spreadsheet or in a CSV file, either individually or all at once. The following export options are available:
- with table headers
- only marked cells
- only selected objects
- only filled rows
- only filled tables
In this way, you can clearly arrange the data to be exported. It is possible to export the formulas used in the program directly as the parameters or in a separate table.

Exporting Multiple Tables
RFEM and RSTAB provide the export interface (‘File’ → ‘Export’) to export model and load data as well as results to Excel or OpenOffice.org Calc in one step. You can select the tables to be exported in the ‘Export of Tables’ section. The ‘Only selected tables’ option allows you to export only a specific selection of tables. Use the [Select Load Cases and Tables for Export] button to open the corresponding dialog box.
Exporting Results of Selected Objects
In RFEM and RSTAB, it is possible to export the calculation results to an Excel document.
