Is it possible to upgrade RSTAB to RFEM?


Yes, that is possible in principle. However, there are some things that have to be taken into account.

  • It may be useful to keep RSTAB as a license so that you can easily edit the old projects in the future.
  • RFEM can open the RSTAB models. The structural and load data are transferred apart from a few exceptional situations. For add-on modules, it may be necessary to rework or enter the data due to the different data formats (in comparison to RSTAB, RFEM additionally requires surface and solid elements).
  • It is also necessary to convert possible active service contracts.
  • As there are various product families, there is no standard price for the upgrade. We can provide you with a price information after having evaluated the relevant case. For this, simply contact our sales department.
