Modeling | Structure RFEM RSTAB 5.xx 8.xx

I am looking for the option to generate special structures automatically or display them as parametrized.

Answer

For relatively common structures, you can select various generators by clicking menu: "Tools" -> "Generate Model - Members (Surfaces)". If you cannot find the required template there, you can look in the block manager. It can be opened by clicking menu: "File" -> "Block Manager" and has a similar structure as the project manager. The corresponding catalogue includes numerous parametrized structures, for example for silos or towers. It is also possible to parametrize already modeled structures and save them as a block.
