Video Tutorials (Basic Course)


Learn the basic concepts, tools, and functions that you will need to build fully functional programs with the popular programming language, Python.

Build a strong foundation in python and object-oriented programming with this tutorial for beginners.

  • Python Development Kit Installation
  • Types and Operators
  • Object-Oriented Programming (OOP), Classes, and Objects
  • Allplan Software Installation (version 2018 and above)

Learning the fundamentals of Python puts a powerful and very useful tool at your fingertips. Python is free, easy to learn, has excellent documentation, and is the base for all object-oriented programming languages.

Content and Overview

Allplan includes a lot of number of PythonParts that you can use to speed up the job of engineers, efficient and quickly implement in reinforcing rebars.  You will find information and instruction for using standard PythonParts here: Library -> Default -> Pythonparts.

What is possible with Allplan PythonParts?

With Allplan PythonParts, the scripting of reinforcement is far more efficient.

In addition to the script language, Allplan PythonParts offer numerous fundamental improvements. For freeform objects (NURBS), you can use the new Parasolid 3D modeling functions. Interactions between individual PythonParts and between PythonParts and other Allplan objects are also possible. 

Allplan users can add new functions and objects to Allplan and therefore adjust the BIM software to their own working method. In addition to parametric objects and variants, recurring work steps can be automated.

Suitable for beginning programmers, through this course of 10 lectures and 3 hours of content, you’ll learn all of the ALLPLAN PythonParts fundamentals and establish a strong understanding of the concept behind object-oriented programming.

Students completing the course will have the knowledge to create functional and useful ALLPLAN PythonParts programs.

Complete with working files and code samples, you’ll be able to work alongside the author as you work through each concept.
