Release: August 2019

PLAXIS 3D CONNECT Edition V20 (20.00.00) contains the following improvements and updates compared to PLAXIS 3D 2018.01:

New and improved features

Subscription Entitlement Service (SES) Licensing

The new PLAXIS releases use the same licensing system as the rest of the applications in your Bentley Playbook. SES Licensing provides a unique ID throughout all Bentley applications, removing the need for dongle keys and manual license version management. Additionally, access personal learning material, paths and history, timely product related news, automatic product updates, and notifications.

Learn more about the new PLAXIS licenses, transitioning to SES, and combining CONNECT Edition and legacy versions in the PLAXIS Wiki section of Bentley Communities.

Scripting Reference manual as a Jupyter notebook

Easily learn Python-based remote scripting in PLAXIS with the new Scripting Reference manual. Sample scripts for each of the commands in PLAXIS 2D and 3D are offered in a Jupyter notebook. These samples can be run live in the software to see and understand what happens. You can also edit and rerun the samples and see the effect of your changes, offering a great way of learning-by-doing.
