RSTAB 9

RFEM 6

Can I open my old RFEM 5 models in RFEM 6 without any problems and edit them further?

Answer

It is possible to import files from RFEM 5 into RFEM 6 or RSTAB 8 into RSTAB 9. A backward compatibility of RFEM 6 with RFEM 5 as well as for RSTAB 9 with RSTAB 8 is not provided.


In general, you should save the RFEM 5 or RSTAB 8 model in the latest program version before the import.


Currently, it should be possible to import most of the model data, load cases, and combinations as well as the loads into the new program series.


Unfortunately, this does not apply to the objects, such as releases, connections, entries in the add-on modules, components of intersections, generated wind and snow loads, and the printout report.


In the case of an import, we strongly recommend to check all input data again and to complete them, if necessary.
