RS2

Improve your FEM analysis with the direct integration with RS2. With a shared materials library, you can easily transition between 2D and 3D. Import RS2 models into RS3 to carry out 3D finite element analysis or use the RS2 section creator to export a cut of the 3D model to quickly analyze critical sections in RS2.

The same geometry and material libraries from RS3 are also in Slide3, making it easier than ever to transition between programs. Import Slide3 models into RS3 to verify slope stability results or take the model one step further with RS3’s stress-strain, groundwater and dynamic tools.

Effortlessly copy your material properties from RSData, our program for analyzing rock and soil strength data, strength envelopes and other physical parameters, and paste them into RS3 for a more streamlined workflow.
