DXF Export of Connection Geometry
Tips & Tricks
Since the last update of RFEM/RSTAB, you can export the entire connection geometry in the DXF file format from RF‑/JOINTS. This is possible for all connection groups, both steel and timber. You can start the export in the “Results - Graphic” window by clicking the new button below the graphics window.
Basically, only all visible components and dimensions will be exported. So it is possible to create individual graphics. You can select the components to be displayed in the navigator as usual. The wireframe model or the outlines are always exported; the solid model is exported only if it is visible. The wireframe and solid model as well as dimensions are arranged in different layers, which is helpful for further processing.
