Through a variety of adjustments, a fundamental acceleration of various work processes was achieved, which significantly improves the handling of large, complex and detailed projects with many associations:
Allplan 2021 provides functions for subsequent splitting and reconnecting of rebars, for example, for inserting or moving openings or for considering concrete pours. In addition, the functionality for placing reinforcement along one and more paths has been optimized: Negative concrete covers, negative projections, and offsetting to edges with several path elements are now also possible.
As a result, the arrangement of reinforcement in challenging situations can be controlled even more precisely. For area reinforcement and polygonal layouts, you can add additional fold lines at a later date and efficiently reuse complete reinforcement layouts via the clipboard or via the library.
Allplan 2021 extends the analysis of BRep geometries and openings during IFC import. As a result, more native Allplan building components such as walls, ceilings, columns, and, if necessary, with the corresponding openings can be created. This significantly improves the quality of the imported IFC models. When exporting IFC, you can also choose whether objects are exported as before as – optionally with support for free geometry (NURBS) – or as BRep geometry.
For the first time, the direct import of Revit files is possible within the scope of a Technical Preview. This means that Revit models can be imported into Allplan and used without first converting them to IFC format. During import, native Allplan objects such as walls, columns, ceilings, beams, windows, doors and roofs are created.
In conjunction with Allplan Bimplus, a new model converter, SCIA AutoConverter Light, is available (Serviceplus or subscription contract of Allplan 2021 or Allplan Engineering Building 2021 required) that can intelligently convert building models into analytical models.
Using the new Structural Analysis Format (SAF), the analytical model can be transferred to various structural analysis systems. This enables openBIM and a much better collaboration between architects, structural engineers and designers.
Integrated, digital workflows are the key to overcoming the challenges in the construction industry. With open, flexible software tools, interdisciplinary cooperation with project partners reaches a new level. Change processes are fundamentally simplified through flexible working with models and drawings. The solution from ALLPLAN enables…
Seamless design process: Allplan supports the entire design process in a single system – from the initial draft right through to the final general arrangement and reinforcement drawings.
Reinforcement at the highest level: An integrated 3D model, complete with reinforcement, fixtures, and if necessary tendons, provides the highest possible design reliability and clarity.
Impressive design documents: The powerful layout and design tools enable you to create high-quality design documents that make the value of your work clearly visible.
While 2D documentation is currently the expected deliverable from the rebar detailing process, digitalization is changing this. Reinforcement detailing software like Allplan Engineering can already transfer reinforcement data directly from the model to rebar bending machines, welding systems, and manufacturing execution software. Not only does this save time, but it also reduces errors from manual input.
