Allplan 2021 - Various innovations for all types of structures

  • Maximum performance for large and complex projects
  • Powerful cloud technology for interdisciplinary collaboration
  • Integrated openBIM workflows for structural engineers

Allplan 2021 offers the construction industry innovative technology, faster workflows and higher performance. Architects, civil and structural engineers are supported with key success criteria: on-time delivery, collaboration and design quality. Regardless of the size, complexity or level of detail of the construction project.

Construction to the highest level

Allplan 2021 offers the construction industry innovative technology, faster workflows and higher performance. Architects, structural and civil engineers are supported with key success criteria: on-time delivery, collaboration and design quality. Regardless of the size, complexity or level of detail of the construction project.

  • Models, working drawings and detailed reinforcement with a single software solution
  • Open BIM platform for efficient cooperation across all disciplines
  • Up-to-date documents and professional visualizations
  • Options for terrain and cross-team collaboration

Saving time in many areas

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:

  • opening a project and editing drawing files
  • modeling of free-form geometry
  • the processing speed of complex components
  • working with rooms and finishes
  • reinforcement objects
  • views and sections
  • update legends
  • reports

Various innovations of reinforcement

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.

Optimizations in IFC exchange

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.

Technical Preview: Direct import of Revit files

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.

Transformation of structural models into analytical models

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.

The open BIM solutions for Structural Engineers

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…

  • Integrated working in digital teams
  • Design in 2D or 3D according to your needs
  • Time savings and increased design quality

Advantages of Allplan at a glance

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.
