Tips & Tricks

The printout reports created in RFEM and RSTAB can be transferred to VCmaster via an interface and further processed there. VCmaster (formerly BauText) is a word processing program for engineers. Calculations, drawings, photos and documents from various sources can be easily compiled, managed and used again with VCmaster.

For a successful export, VCmaster has to be already running in the background. You can start the interface in the printout report using the [Export to VCmaster] button.

Click the button to open the dialog box where you should select the printer “VCmaster t2W Interface.”

Then, define the red area to be transferred. Empty areas or unnecessary pages can be deselected.

Once the page selection has been done, it can be transferred to the program. The printout is then inserted at the cursor position.

In addition to the export of the printout report data, the path of the corresponding RFEM or RSTAB file is also transferred. You can open the corresponding RFEM or RSTAB file by double‑clicking the button shown on the left side of the page.

All documents and calculations created with VCmaster can be retrieved later and used again. Using the template explorer, texts and calculations from the existing templates can be extended, combined, adjusted to your individual requirements and inserted into the document.

User-defined templates can be quickly and easily added via “File” → “Template Management.”

VCmaster automatizes frequently recurring tasks, and thus allows you to quickly implement the changes. Each calculation can be used as a template and utilized later again. Thus, you can save a lot of time when creating structural calculations and other technical documentation.
