Show and Hide Member Types Using Display Navigator

Tips & Tricks

Users of RFEM and RSTAB already know the advantages of various visibilities, which can be used to create user‑defined areas of the structure for further editing.

When working with complex structures, it may be necessary to filter member types in a user‑defined visibility that has been already selected. You might need to evaluate the maximum or minimum tensile force of tension members in this part of the structure. The Display navigator is useful for this: You can easily select and deselect the individual member types under ‘Model’ → ‘Members’ → ‘Member Types’.
