I would like to use a cross-section that is not included in the cross-section library of RFEM and RSTAB. Is it possible to get the cross-section?


By using the add-on modules SHAPE‑THIN (thin-walled cross-sections) and SHAPE‑MASSIVE (thick-walled cross-sections), it is possible to model almost any cross-section by entering them graphically, in tables, or by importing a DXF file.

For SHAPE‑THIN and SHAPE‑MASSIVE, there are the connection possibilities to RFEM and RSTAB. Thus, the cross-sections can be transferred to RFEM and RSTAB, calculated, and designed in the add-on modules.
