• ### How can I transfer a field of nodes instead of just a single node via the COM interface in VBA?

To transfer several elements, you have to create a field (array) in VBA first:

Dim nodes(0 to 2) as RFEM5.Node

Then, you can use the method IModelData.SetNodes() to transfer all nodes to the field (here, three elements 0,1,2) at once.

These methods are also available for the following structural elements, for example:

IModelData.SetLines()IModelData.SetMembers()IModelData.SetSurfaces()
• ### Is there an easy way to create a spatial structure from a 2D model, whereby the nodes in columns and lines will be extruded into walls?

For lines, this option is already available directly in the shortcut menu. For extruding nodes into members and lines in surfaces, there is the corresponding option in the detailed settings of Copy/Rotate/Mirror. As soon as at least one copy is generated, the new elements will also be created.
In case this feature is not wanted anymore, it should be deactivated in the detailed settings again.

If not, contact us via our free e-mail, chat, or forum support, or send us your question via the online form.

#### First Steps

We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the main programs RFEM and RSTAB.

#### 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 for the valuable information.

I would like to pay a compliment to your support team. I am always impressed how quickly and professionally the questions are answered. I have used a lot of software with a support contract in the field of structural analysis, but your support is by far the best. ”
