AnswerTo display the isobands of the results in a single color, you have to edit the color scale. To do this, simply double-click the color scale or edit the color scale by clicking the right mouse button (see Figure 01). The slider can then be pushed down so far that only one color remains. You can change this by double-clicking the color. Then, the maximum value can be transferred manually to the forelasttext box (see Figure 02). If you want a colorless display, define a very small number for the forelast value. It is also recommended to activate the "Outlines of Deformed Surfaces" option (see Figure 03).
When printing a graphic in the printout report, you can select the position of the color scale in the "Color Scale" tab. Furthermore, you can adjust the size of the color scale in the same dialog box. If deactivating the "No Color Scale" check box (Figure 01), this is displayed in the graphic in the printout report.
If a graphic has already been inserted into the printout report without a color scale, it is possible to display the color scale retroactively. To do this, right-click the picture. Then, select the properties in the shortcut menu (Figure 02) to open the "Color Scale" tab. You can also edit the position and the size of the color scale here.
AnswerIf a user-defined panel has already been created, this color scale is displayed in Display Properties in the "Printout Report" tab under "Results" → "Palette." If you set this as default, the graphics in the printout report are updated automatically.
AnswerIn the ASCII Format DXF (*.dxf) tab of the corresponding dialog box, you can change the settings for the data exchange.It is recommended to check the parameters, especially before the import. You have probably set an incorrect length unit. In this case, check the length units and set the desired length unit.
The first of both reinforcements selected for display are displayed in red and blue by default. To change these and other colors, use the color scale within the panel, following the steps below:
- Double-click one of the reinforcements in the panel.
- The "Edit Isoline Value and Color Scales" dialog box opens: Double-click the color you want to change.
- The "Color" dialog box opens: Select a new color and click OK to confirm.
- Save it.
- The "Save Color Scale" dialog box appears: Enter the name of the new color scale and confirm it by clicking OK; the new color scale is now saved.
- Select the desired color scale and confirm it by clicking OK.

The automatic transfer to all load cases or load combinations is unfortunately not possible. However, you can save the customized settings and import them in other load cases.To do this, it is necessary to open the dialog box for editing the isoband value and color scales and specify the user-defined settings. Then, click "Save..." to save these settings.This isoband value scale is now available in all load cases and combinations and can be selected.
AnswerYou can edit the text size in Image Properties → Color Scale → with Text Factor. The frame size can be adjusted relatively or absolutely. If the frame is larger and covers a part of the image, adjust the edges to move the image.
AnswerThere are two ways to do this. When printing a graphic into the printout report, you can select the position of the color scale in the "Color Scale" tab. Furthermore, you can adjust the size of the color scale in the same dialog box. If the "No Color Scale" check box is deactivated, the color scale is hidden in the graphic in the printout report.However, it is also possible to hide the color scale afterwards, even though the picture is already contained in the printout report. To do this, right-click the picture. In the shortcut menu, select Properties to open the "Color Scale" tab. Here, it is also possible to edit the position and the size of the color scale.
AnswerYes, you can define an area in the panel by clicking the button "options". Here you can define a customized area by moving the slider. In that case the areas with higher or lower stresses have no color.
The panel that appears after the calculation has been performed has a filter for displaying certain elements. Occasionally, elements may be intentionally or unconsciously removed from the results display.
In case that elements are missing unexpectedly in the result display, it is therefore recommended to check the filter of the panel first (see figure).

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.
