I have two import files (solid structures: ifc file, steel structures: dxf file). Can I merge both files in RFEM and handle them as an entire model?


You can create a new model and import the ifc file (or the dxf file) there. Then, import the other import file as a background layer into the existing model (see the figure).

As an alternative, you can create two separate models and merge them by using Block Manager (see FAQ under Links below).


import dxf import ifc merge models IFC DXF
