Import / Export & BIM RFEM RSTAB

I have imported an stp file to RSTAB. Now, the cross-section properties of the L- and Z-sections are exchanged. What can I do to avoid this?

Answer

In the detail settings for the DSTV interface you can specify that cross-sections of the L- and Z-type are mirrored. Clear the check box for the export here (see picture).

Select "Import" on the "File" menu, and then open the tab "DSTV Interface (*.stp)" in the "Import" dialog box.
