    COM Interface in VBA | Creating a Parts List

    Parts lists give information about which and how many parts are necessary for creating a building. They are the basis for identifying the needs and purchasing the components. Parts lists can be created in the design modules such as RF-/STEEL EC3, RF-/TIMBER Pro and so on. Additionally, a customized parts list can be created with the RF-COM/RS-COM interface.

    Opportunities and Challenges of Structural Engineers When Using BIM

    The bachelor thesis of Daniel Dlubal focuses on presenting and highlighting the chances, advantages and opportunities of BIM when performing structural analysis and design of buildings. The essential information of a structural analysis is shown and the data exchange between CAD and structural engineering software is explained in detail as well.

    COM interface in VBA | 4.2 Frame Optimization

    Part 4.1 of this article series described the connection of the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add‑on module and the members and load combinations to be designed were already defined. This part will focus on the optimization of cross‑sections in the module and the transfer to RFEM. The elements already explained in the previous parts are not described again.

    BIM Workflow: Data Exchange Using IFC Files

    In the BIM workflow, IFC files are frequently used as the basis for data exchange between CAD and structural engineering software. However, there is a fundamental problem with this approach. This article explains various types of IFC files, and provides an overview of the import and export options in the Dlubal Software programs.

    COM Interface in VBA | 4.1 Frame Optimization

    Part 4.1 and 4.2 of this article series describes the optimization of a frame using the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add-on module. The fifth part explains how to link the module and get the relevant members. The elements already explained in the previous parts are not described again.

    Revit Interface: Export

    BIM is often used when it comes to data management in civil engineering. The individual disciplines of architecture, structural design, construction, and structural monitoring are coming closer together. Building Information Modeling makes this possible.

    Dlubal Software provides a wide range of formats for data exchange. The following article explains the details of the interface with Autodesk Revit and, particularly the export settings.

    Building Information Modeling and Structural Analysis Software: Scenarios and Success Factors for Data Exchange

    Building Information Modeling describes one of the most important issues in the construction software industry. This process is not new and it’s a well‑known fact that reliable planning in the early stages of a project has a significant positive effect on the project’s total cost. For more than twenty years, 3D models in the steel construction industry have been utilised so that 2D production documents could be created automatically or the related NC data could be sent directly to automatic production.
