Is it possible in the RSTAB printout report to display only the internal forces of the start and end nodes in the results table 4.1 "Members – Internal Forces"? For constructing connections, the results of the maximum or minimum internal forces of the member starts and ends would be quite sufficient.

Answer

If you only want to display the internal forces from the start and end node in the results table Members - Internal Forces, you can do so by selecting it in the printout report.

Use the menu item "Edit" to open the "Selection." Here you can, for example, For example, select the "LC/CO Results" tab and open the details for the internal forces related to the member. In it, you can specify that only the "node values" should be displayed (see Figure 1). In the preview, only the rows of the start and end nodes are then displayed for the load case and load combination results.

For result combinations, you can do the same in the RC Results tab.

Basically, the output depends on the settings in RSTAB or RFEM.

An output to intermediate locations of the members depends on the definition of a member division. If, for example, For example, a member can be defined in the window that appears. Internal forces are also displayed at these locations (see Figure 2).

Please note, however, that you have selected the "All Values" check box in the Display navigator under "Results" → "Members" because this is deactivated by default. (see Figure 3)

You can also export the data to an RTF file and then further simplify the data. The RTF export is available in the printout report via the File menu item.
