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.

EX3

Seamlessly import your RS3 models into EX3 or vice versa. This interoperability allows you to convert your geometry, assign materials, field stress and regions of interest into a model that is ready to compute after loading.

  • Liner Local Coordinates

    Easily define the liner local coordinate system using the tunnel direction and side faces. Effortlessly follow the tunnel shape, and direction, and define the tunnel frame to seamlessly plan an effective excavation.

  • RS2 Import Wizard

    Conveniently import your RS2 projects into RS3 using the new RS2 Import Wizard. This feature helps define the extrusion width of the model, applies restraints for the extruded model, and automatically generates mesh for your model as you import.

  • Tunnel Designer

    This powerful tool is used for defining any tunnel profile and generating sequence-based tunnel models. Easily define tunnel models in various shapes, add supports, and specify excavation stages. Accelerate and advance the tunnel modeling process with RS3’s Tunnel Designer.
