We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the main programs RFEM and RSTAB.
Can I plot directly from the RSTAB program?
Yes, you can plot directly from RSTAB or RFEM. You can do this by sending the image directly to a network plotter or to a local plotter, provided that this plotter is installed as Windows printer.
Select the graphic that you want to plot and click [Print]. Specify the following in the "Graphic Printout" dialog box: In the "Graphic Picture" section of the "Graphic" tab, select the "Directly to a printer" option. In the same tab, select in the "Graphic Size" section the "Window filling" option.
By clicking [OK], you open the "Print" dialog box, where you can set the installed printer or plotter. In the properties of the driver, you can specify the paper size.
Alternatively, you can plot from a file. To do this, select in the "Print" dialog box the "Print to file" check box. A .prn file is created. If you rename the file format to .hgl, you can import it in an image editor and send it to a plotter.
