Is it possible to consider the loads on a glass pane from the structure in the RF‑GLASS design?


Loads from the whole structure are automatically considered for the design in RF‑GLASS if you select the global calculation type and the corresponding load case.
In the case of the 'local' calculation type, the structural system is considered separately and thus the loads directly acting on the surface are only taken into account.
Therefore, it is necessary to manually enter the loads from the supporting system in the case of this calculation type.
