Exchanging Data via ISM File
Tips & Tricks
The ISM file (ISM = Integrated Structural Modeling) in RFEM and RSTAB is an interesting possibility to exchange data. If you export a model to this data format, you can view and analyze it with the free ISM viewer from Bentley.
During export, the exact geometry, cross‑section information, member type and release data is transferred. In the ISM viewer, you can view a rendered 3D model. Moreover, you can call up detailed information about every element.
