I have imported a SHAPE-THIN cross-section into RSTAB/RFEM. How is it possible to update the cross-section in RSTAB/RFEM if the cross-section has been changed in the SHAPE-THIN program?


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