Bastian Kuhn Import / Export & BIM RFEM RSTAB

Is it possible to exchange models bidirectionally between cadwork and RFEM / RSTAB?


You can swap models between cadwork and RFEM / RSTAB in four ways or with three file types.

  1. Exchange via the COM interface. A plugin is created in cadwork with which a direct export from RSTAB is possible (Figure 1).
  2. Exchange via format * .stp as DSTV format. The exchange in both directions (bidirectional) is possible here. Supports can thus also be exchanged in both directions.
  3. Import of Surfaces from cadwork in RFEM.
  4. Import of lines from cadwork into RFEM / RSTAB
This webinar will show you all of these options for exchanging information.

You can use the Export - Modules - Static System function with cadwork to create Complete Structural Orders that you export to the RFEM / RSTAB. This functionality is constantly being expanded in the program.
