Automatically Creating Intersections
Tips & Tricks
If you want to model two intersecting surfaces, RFEM offers you the possibility to create the section line automatically. In the program, this function is referred to as intersection. When generating an intersection, the modeled surface is split into components. This has the advantage that the components can be taken into account in the determination of the internal forces or deactivated.
A further help for modeling is that the automatically generated lines in the surface can be converted to ‘real’ lines. This approach helps, for example, to model elliptical openings in a surface.
