PLAXIS Customization

Every professional, every business, is unique. They all work in different environments and face various challenges. They all use PLAXIS in a specific way. To better respond to these individual needs, we created PLAXIS Customization. This professional service aims at the development of fit-for-purpose solutions to particular user requirements. Customization may involve additional features in PLAXIS, or new functionalities built around it using the PLAXIS Remote Scripting API, to make it more suitable or efficient for particular applications, or to integrate it with the user’s work environment.

Customization can expand the frontier of what is possible within PLAXIS:

  • Optimise your design by easily simulating thousands of scenarios in probabilistic and sensitivity analyses
  • Estimate material qualities and conditions from laboratory or field results with inverse analysis
  • Import geometric or soil data from a spreadsheet or cloud database; have your full product catalogue imported to PLAXIS
  • Combine results in automated reports or export them to other types of software.

Possibilities are virtually unlimited, and we will be glad to discuss them with you.

With Customization, PLAXIS can blend perfectly into your environment. Let us show you how it can be even more essential for you.

Maximize your returns from PLAXIS

Almost every PLAXIS user can benefit from Customization in different ways.

Customization can help you tackle cumbersome activities more efficiently, boosting your
productivity by reducing the time you spend modelling and increasing your ratio of useful work. This is particularly sensible if your workflow involves routine tasks or sequences, or if you find yourself creating the same geometry repeatedly.

Customization can also expand the frontier of what is possible within PLAXIS. If you belong to an innovative organisation, developing experimental products or techniques, you may be facing challenges that only you and your team know about. You may need a deeper analysis than current finite element packages allow or a new object that models your problem more easily and accurately. We too are a company of researchers and innovators, and we would love supporting you in achieving your goals. Possibilities are virtually unlimited, and we will be glad to discuss them with you.

Personalized solutions

Every Customization is undertaken as a unique project. Before starting the process, Plaxis engineers will take responsibility for fully understanding your problem and will work together with you to propose a best-fit solution.

If you accept our proposal, your Customization project will be integrated into Plaxis’ release schedule. A project team will be appointed, with clearly defined responsibilities and roles, who will develop, test and validate the Customization according to your requirements. As we want you to be 100% satisfied with the final result, you will be welcome to get involved in the process.

Tailored to PLAXIS quality standards

PLAXIS software is known for its robustness, user-friendliness and high quality. All new developments are thoroughly tested and validated following a world-class chain of quality assurance processes. Every Customization is executed consistently with these high standards.


Examples of possible Customizations are:

  • Import of data for soil and structures from databases or product catalogues
  • Fast creation of models for standard or custom applications (foundations, excavations, embankments, pile arrays) based on user-defined templates
  • Implementation of specific constitutive models as user-defined soil models
  • Automation of repetitive tasks
  • Easy simulation of multiple scenarios for sensitivity analysis, probabilistic analysis, parameter optimisation or inverse analysis
  • Export of specific data and results, automated reports and/or coupling with other types of software (e.g. structural analysis, CFD, BIM)
  • Setting automatic checks, verifications, notifications and warnings
  • Implementation of bespoke design tools or modules
  • Many other applications. Tell us what you need!
