Useful Program Features
Dlubal Software programs and add-on modules include a wide range of powerful features.
Since our software is subject to continuous development, we are constantly adding new features. In doing so, we also take account of our customers' wishes.
Why Dlubal Software?
The direct interface with Revit allows you to update the Revit model according to the changes you have made in RFEM or RSTAB. Depending on the modification, the Revit objects may have to be regenerated (deleting the object and subsequent regeneration). The regeneration is performed on the basis of the RFEM/RSTAB model.
If you want to avoid this regeneration, activate the option "Update only materials, thicknesses, and sections." In this case, only the properties of the objects will be adjusted. Changes differing in material, surface thickness, and section are, however, not considered in this case.
The reinforcement concept from RF-/CONCRETE Members can be exported to Revit. Rectangular and circular cross-sections are possible at the moment. The reinforcement bars can be modified afterwards in Revit.
The member type "Dashpot" can be used for time history analyses in RFEM/RSTAB with the add-on modules RF-/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations and RF-/DYNAM Pro - Nonlinear Time History. This linear viscous damping element considers forces dependent on velocity.
With regard to viscoelasticity, the member type "Dashpot" is similar to the Kelvin-Voigt model which consists of the damping element and an elastic spring (both connected in parallel).
When exchanging data with Advance Steel using *.smlx files, the interface is automatically detected. This means that *.smlx files are possible even if no version of Advance Steel is installed.
The material database in RFEM, RSTAB and SHAPE-THIN contains steels according to the Australian standard AS/NZS 4600:2005.
A structure is created in the graphical user interface typical for CAD programs or by using tables. Right-clicking on graphical or navigator objects activates the shortcut menu, which facilitates creating or editing such objects. The user interface is operated intuitively so the structure and loading objects can be created in a minimal amount of time.
It is possible to operate the program in the following languages: English, German, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
The user‑interface design of RFEM/RSTAB can be customised with any of the nine different styles of graphical user interface (for example Office 2007 Blue, Silver, Aqua, or Black).
Program configuration menus and toolbars can be freely customized. It's possible to setup an arrangement of frequently used functions and tools for quick access. Default settings of the program can be restored at the click of a button. Tables, navigators, and toolbars can also be freely moved and docked.
The Configuration Manager provides the opportunity to define custom graphic display properties (font sizes, font colors, screen color, etc.) and toolbars, which can be saved and accessed at a later time
