Import / Export & BIM RFEM RSTAB

Is it possible to export data from RFEM to RSTAB?

Answer

The export is not possible in this direction.

In RFEM, surface elements may be available in addition to member elements. RSTAB is not able to import these surface elments because this would lead to a falsification of the structural system and so to wrong results.
