Sonja von Bloh Import / Export & BIM RFEM RSTAB SHAPE-THIN

I have imported a SHAPE-THIN cross-section into RSTAB / RFEM. How can I update the cross-section in RSTAB / RFEM if I have changed the cross-section in the SHAPE-THIN program?

Answer

The modified cross-section must be reimported into RSTAB / RFEM. To do this, click the "Import cross-section from the SHAPE-THIN program" button in the "Edit Cross-Section" dialog box and select the modified SHAPE-THIN cross-section. The query whether the cross-section should be overwritten must be answered with "Yes" (Figure 1).
