I can't get my members exported from RFEM to TEKLA. What am I doing wrong?


If you are using members with cross-sections, which are not known be the interface, you should use the mapping file for cross-sections. The mapping file can be easily filled with the names of the cross-sections. In the left column of the table write the names of cross-section used in TEKLA and in the right column you write the DLUBAL names or select them from the library.
Please check the attached video.

In TEKLA you have to have loaded the right environment. In the video Chinese cross-sections should be transferred, so the Chinese environment has to be used in TEKLA.
