Tips & Tricks



Until the program version of RFEM 5.06.1103, it was only possible to export the results on surfaces in the form of isolines into a DXF file. As of the program version 5.06.3039, it is now also possible to export the results in the Isobands display option.

The DXF export with the Isobands display option is the same as the Isolines display option. You only need to set the display option for results on surfaces. The display in a DXF file is then realized with hatchings. Each range of values previously defined in RFEM has its own layer here so it is possible to hide the individual ranges, if necessary.

This expanded export function allows you to export the surface reinforcement previously determined in the RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces add‑on module in a DXF file and display it colored in a better way, for example. This function is especially useful in connection with the function of manual definition of reinforcement areas in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces, released in program version 5.06.1103 (see the figure displaying the manually defined surface reinforcement applied in SLS design).
