GEOSLOPE software products are sold as "concurrent use" licenses. The software can be installed on an unlimited number of computers in your office. The number of simultaneous users of the software is restricted by the number of licenses purchased.
A standalone license is installed on an individual desktop or laptop computer, whereas a network license is installed on a computer chosen as the network license server computer, and is thus accessible by all computers on the network.
If a standalone license (also known as a node-locked license) is purchased, the license will require activation. Without activation, the license will not be enabled and the software will not be fully functional. If a license is being shared among several colleagues in an office, the licence can be "returned" (deactivated) from one computer and activated on another up to ten times per month.
A network license (also known as a floating license) is an ideal solution for offices that share software over a Local Area Network (LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN). There is no limit to the number of network licenses that can be purchased; the number can be customized to fit the number of users in your company. For example, purchasing one network license allows one person at a time to run the software from any computer on the network; if five network licenses are purchased, a 5-user license will be issued, enabling up to five people to run the software at any given time.
A network license requires activation on a ‘server computer’ which runs a license server program that monitors the number of users concurrently running the GEOSLOPE software. Utilizing a well-known network license management program called ‘FlexNet™ Publisher’, a software license can be granted to anyone on the network if a license is available.
Network licenses can be ‘detached’, allowing an end-user to check out a license and then disconnect from the corporate network. A detachable license offers flexibility, but may not be suitable for all environments. If you wish to utilize this feature, please contact GEOSLOPE for details.
It is possible to change your license type from standalone to network or vice versa, at any time, though costs may be incurred. Please contact GEOSLOPE for details.
Add SEEP3D to SEEP/W to unlock the power of 3D groundwater flow analysis. Designed for geotechnical engineers who must understand seepage in levees, earth dams, natural slopes, and excavations, SEEP3D has the same intuitive workflow found in our 2D products. SEEP3D provides limited BUILD3D tools to quickly create simple 3D geometry by extrusion, apply materials and boundary conditions to 3D objects, generate a finite element mesh, and solve and interpret 3D results.
BUILD3D is a revolutionary, time-saving tool for constructing 3D analysis-ready geometries. Its powerful, feature-based design allows for quick construction of 3D geotechnical models with complex topography or geology, and sweeping tunnels or rivers. When added to a SEEP3D license, BUILD3D offers a suite of intuitive sketch tools and powerful Boolean operations beyond simple extrusion, including sketch, sweep, cut, merge, and imprint. The BUILD3D license also unlocks the ability to import and export STEP/STL files for use with CAD programs.
