How can I install the interface to Rhino and Grasshopper?

Answer

Please make sure that Rhino (version 6.20 or later) is already installed on your computer. Then you can launch the RFEM 5 installation. For this, you need the version 5.21.02 at least. The plug-ins are automatically saved in one of the following directories and also installed.

C:\Program Files\Common Files\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\Plug-ins\
C:\Users\#USER#\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\Plug-ins\

After completing the installation, you can run Rhino and Grasshopper. In both programs, the Dlubal-specific toolbars should be available by now. It is also possible to subsequently attach the Dlubal toolbar for Rhino to the other toolbars (see the video).

If Rhino has been installed later than RFEM, the interface is not available. In this case, it is recommended to reinstall RFEM.
