Modeling | Loading RFEM 5.xx

Why are loads not updated automatically after importing them using the "Import Loads from Support Reactions" function, when I change the connection structure?

Answer

Importing loads from support reactions means a temporary creation of loads, so you can select only surfaces that are really available. Subsequent modification of the structure have no effect on the import of loads anymore and thus the loading is not updated automatically. It is not possible to change this. Therefore, we recommend to model the entire structure first and then to import loads from other models.
