RISA-3D 12.0.2

An efficient and comprehensive software solution functioning as a complete 3D model creator for structural engineers or students in the field
RISA-3D is professional tool functioning as a multi-purpose 3D designer for various structural models, that can prove particularly useful for construction engineers.

The application allows you to both create new designs and import existing ones that you can then modify to suit your needs. You can add various elements, draw grids, assign boundaries and insert joins, all with just one click.

The 'Member Grid Generator' component enables you to enter the geometrical data of a structure you want to create, specifying the necessary coordinates, then automatically generate your design. You can choose which materials to work with, such as wood, concrete, aluminum or masonry and select the exact kind you need from the available list.

The 'Dynamic View Controls' function allows you to visualize the generated structure from multiple angles, spinning it on either of the three axes (X, Y, Z) or zoom in and out of the image using the mouse scroll.

The 'Global Parameters' enables you to set various preferences concerning the construction, such as the 'Hot Rolled Steel', 'Wood Temperature', 'Concrete' or 'Seismic Code', depending on the characteristics of the region you intend to build it in.

The shapes that you can use in your design include 'Continuous Multi Span Beams', 'Circular' or 'Parabolic Arcs', '3D Grid for Members', 'Cone with Plates' or 'Rectangular tanks with Stiffeners'.

Using the 'Units Selection' feature, you can customize every length, dimension, density and temperature unit to meet your needs, or you can simply select between the Standard Imperial and Metric systems.

RISA-3D is an advanced and comprehensive application, whose multiple functions are sure to satisfy your every engineering need. Using this powerful tool, you can successfully design buildings, tanks, crane rails, stadiums, arenas, and many other industrial and commercial constructions.
