Is it also possible to create members when importing a DXF file into RFEM?

The lines in the DXF file can be imported as lines or members. The selection is made by selecting the check box 'Create Members' in the tab 'ASCII Format DXF (*.dxf)' within the import dialog box (Figure 1).

When importing members, the names of the layers are transferred as cross-section names, and the first predefined material is assigned. If a cross-section of the Dlubal profile database and a material from the Dlubal material database are recognized from the layer name, they are transferred. The layer name must be specified in the format [Cross-Section Name]$[Material Name] (for example, IPE 300$Structural Steel S 235 JR).

The import of lines/members is shown in the video.
