RE: Dynamic Analysis Sofware

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I admit that I went with VA because it was significantly less expensive than RISA-3D, but with 3D capabilities.

Since then, they have added a boat-load of capabilities, and yet have stayed at approximately the same price-point.
I believe that VA "does" Canadian codes.
Does the $1,800 include the Design module? If so, I would think that would be a no-brainer. Oh, and I assume that $1,800 is CANADIAN, so that might be for VA only.
In the end, though, I think you really need a well-established package for doing the sort of analysis you're contemplating.

I already contacted IES about Visual Analysis and it looks
good- about $1800.  A company that does bigger stuff than
me uses RISA 3D but it is about another $1000.
