I would like to model a threaded rod as a 3D solid in RFEM. Is this possible?

Answer

There is no feature in the program that can create a thread. In such a case, it is necessary to create this geometrically by using nodes and lines. The program provides an option to create the threads by means of trajectory surfaces. However, you can reach your target relatively quickly when using Copy and Rotate.
