Save Time using the New Palette Technology

  • The selection, creation and modification of any element is done using palettes (function, property, wizard and module palettes), which provides a consistent and intuitive method of working.
  • The user finds functions and properties are easier to read and select using palettes. Modifications to ranges of elements are even easier to perform.

Advanced Reinforcement Functions

  • Straightforward reinforcement without intermediate steps thanks to associative views both in shell and reinforcement design.
  • Thanks to the new circular reinforcement, round components such as circular foundations, walls, slabs and even engineering structures like digestion towers and silos are easier to reinforce.
  • Non-colliding reinforcement proposals provide more security for complex reinforcement tasks.

Extensive use of Manufacturer Data

  • Even in earlier versions, Allplan supports work with fixtures from manufacturers Halfen-aeha und Peikko and contains special functions for reinforcement technologies from BAMTEC and Erico-Lenton.
  • For even more practice-oriented design, special functions for Schöck lugs and Anahütte couplers are now available.

Optimized Structural Design

  • Round-Trip Engineering further refined with Allplan BIM 2008 and SCIA.ESA PT 2008.
  • Load-bearing components can now be transferred directly from Allplan and used to automatically generate the structural system in SCIA.ESA PT.

Advanced Data Exchange with 2D and 3D PDF Files

  • Simple, interactive incorporation of e.g. building product details from manufacturers improves design reliability. Regardless of the CAD system used, appearance, scale information and layers remain the same.
  • The ability to incorporate Allplan models directly into a 3D PDF improves and simplifies communication with planning partners. The recipient can view, rotate, create sections and display or hide elements of the model using the free Adobe Reader.

Simplified Project Organization and Changes

  • Every user can set up a project for component-oriented planning with storeys, floors, structure and file splitting with just a few clicks and no need for expert knowledge of the system. Help is provided by the new Building Structure and Storey Manager.

Simplified Quantity Takeoff for Tendering

  • Quantities for steel bars, mesh reinforcement, formwork and fixtures are easier to determine.
  • Allplan analyzes the quantities and costs for the elements in the design and maintains the information in lists. This information can be transferred to any tendering program, if required.
  • This way, quantity calculations can easily be passed on to architects or used for your own tenders.
