More about BIM

What is Allplan BIM 2008?

Allplan BIM 2008 is an object -oriented 3D planning software package for Building Information Modeling (BIM). It covers all commonly used design types, from simple 2D design all the way to virtual building modeling with integrated quantity take-off and cost calculation. Unlike any other CAD software, Allplan BIM 2008 symbolizes interdisciplinary planning by architects, construction engineers, design professionals and facility managers. In addition to traditional exchange formats, Allplan BIM 2008 supports PDF and IFC, the formats of the future, and thus ensures a smooth data exchange process among planning partners.


What is Building Information Modeling (BIM)?

BIM stands for “Building Information Modeling” and describes the seamless process of optimized design, implementation and management of buildings and real estate. All planning partners benefit from up-to-date, high-quality and freely accessible information about the respective design, implementation or current status. The goal is to make the design, construction and management process more accurate and cost-efficient.


How does Allplan BIM 2008 support Building Information Modeling?

Allplan BIM 2008 provides the database for building information modeling. In addition to the creation of architecture models, Allplan BIM 2008 can also be used to determine quantities and costs. Design professionals can supplement the model with data about heating, air-conditioning, sanitation and electrical information. Moreover, the software can also generate structural models that can be converted into analytical models. The calculation results from the analytical model then flow back into the structural model.


Extract from an article in CAD News Magazine 07/08-2007

„… Every building is a unique object which has to be conceived, designed, and constructed. To improve planning efficiency on a sustainable basis demands a solution that integrates the work of architects, engineers, tender issuers, cost assessors and clients: Building Information Modeling represents the Holy Grail.“
