Structures in the DXF format can be imported into RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 as lines from Autodesk AutoCAD.
Different objects (for example, cross-sections) can be exported from RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 to separate layers in Autodesk AutoCAD.
A new file format for structural design, Structural Analysis Format (SAF), is now also supported. Both import and export is possible in RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9. SAF is a file format based on MS Excel, which is intended to facilitate the exchange of structural analysis models between different software applications.

The structural analysis program RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM 6 is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program can also design combined structures as well as solid and contact elements.
The structural frame & truss analysis and design program RSTAB 9 contains a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM, paying special attention to frames and trusses. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for the structural analysis of beam structures consisting of steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and other materials.
