Modeling | Loading RFEM RSTAB

Why are wind and snow load generator greyed out in my RFEM/RSTAB file?


The prerequisite for using both generators for wind and snow load are that you are working with the 3D model type because when working with a 2D model type, the program does not have the corresponding geomtrical parameters.
The model type has to be set in the "Edit Model - General Data" dialog box. The dialog is opened by right-clicking "Model Data", "General Data" in the Project Navigator - Data. The modeling may have to be adapted.
