Scripting Overview

The RS2 Scripting is a powerful API tool to automate modeling workflows and enhance analysis capabilities of RS2.

By leveraging RS2 Scripting, users can access to a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Automate RS2 modeling workflows by streamlining repetitive tasks for users of all levels
  • Develop project-specific statistical analyses, parametric analyses, and other higher-level studies by integrating the API tool with the software
  • Manage database for both model input parameters and computed results by utilizing the import/export to csv or equivalent features
  • Customize scripts for projects of specific needs with the API library as well as other popular Python libraries to boost efficiency and flexibility


Built upon the standard Python programming language, RS2 Scripting serves seamless interaction with our software platform. The RS2 Python API Library contains comprehensive functions and modules to integrate with RS2.

Users can combine the RS2 Python API Library with popular Python libraries such as NumPy, Scikit-learn, TensorFlow, Pandas and Matplotlib to extend the level of data science and machine learning for engineering analysis.

RS2 Python Environment

The RocScript Editor serves as the pre-configured Python editor. The RocScript Editor and the RS2 Python API Library are bundled with the RS2 installation package.

Besides RocScript, users can alternatively use their own python environment. In this case, the RS2 Python API Library needs to be downloaded to their preferred code editor. See more information in Getting Started tutorial.
