Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

When you insert a block, the assignment to the block defined in the block manager is lost so that it is not possible to update the already inserted block after changing the block in the block manager. However, in the detail settings of the "Insert Block" dialog box, you can create a named visibility for this block (Figure 1). In this way, it is possible to use the Views project navigator later (Figure 1) to quickly find this block and replace it with the updated block.
AnswerYes, it is possible. If selecting the model or the individual objects, you can copy them using Ctrl+C and paste in another model using Ctrl+V. However, it must be ensured that the loads can only be transferred in a limited way.It is much comfortable to use the export via Block Manager. This allows you to also transfer load cases and loads. More information about Block Manager can be found under the link below.
AnswerSets of members are inserted if the 'Sets of members' check box in Detail Settings is activated (see figure).
If the geometry is only relevant, you can select the desired elements, copy them using Ctrl+C and paste them into the other file using Ctrl+V.
In order to also merge loads, there is Block Manager: save the individual models as blocks. You can then import the blocks including loads into an existing model via Block Manager.
Select the entire model (or the individual components only) and save it (them) as a block (see Figure 01). If you then insert the block to another model, the load cases of the block are appended to the load cases of the model. An automatic integration of load cases into the existing load cases is not yet possible. It is also necessary to make the adjustment manually. The easiest way is to use the function 'Add load cases' (see Figure 02).

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
Your support is by far the best
“Thank you very much for the useful information.
I would like to pay a compliment to your support team. I am always impressed how quickly and professionally the questions are answered. In the industry of structural analysis, I use several software including service contract, but your support is by far the best.”
