VisualAnalysis Levels

Changing Feature-Level

VisualAnalysis comes in three feature-levels.  You may change to a higher level at any time after your initial purchase. You will get a new license ID. To use it, deactivate your existing license and then activate the new license. You will then pay the higher maintenance fee for the higher level product.

Simple Professional (Design) Advanced
Analysis Only Adds design checks for steel, wood, concrete, cold-formed, aluminum Adds, automatic plate meshing, rigid links, time history, moving loads, cable elements, and more...

This is Not Maintenance

A level-change is not normal maintenance, even though it appears in the Renewals and Upgrades section of the shopping system. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact sales before making this purchase.
