Modeling | Structure RFEM RSTAB

After importing a CAD model, I encounter some geometrical problems: some nodes are at a very small distance to each other, so that the connection is missing at some locations. How can I unify these nodes?

Answer

To unify close lying nodes, select on the menu "Tools" -> "Regenerate Model". Specify the geometrical tolerance and regenerate the model.
