How can I import curved members from the cadwork program or other CAD programs?


Curved members are described in the cadwork program and many other CAD programs by the outer envelopes. Therefore, a direct import via members is not possible.

Therefore, you have to import the member from the CAD program first in .sat format (Standard Acis Text Format) or .ifc as a surface in RFEM and then reimport it to a member.
When using the .sat format, you should select Version 7.0 in cadwork.

The attached video shows both options for the program cadwork.
