Announcement: March 8 2016.

Allplan Architectural Design is a powerful BIM solution that supports the entire process of architectural design in design studios, but is also intended for investors and contractors. Its particular strength lies in consistency starting from the initial idea, through high-quality tender projects to the final detailed design. Depending on the type and stage of the project, one can select the optimum mode: three-dimensional, conventional two-dimensional or hybrid. All standard interfaces are available for sophisticated data exchange (including DWG, DXF, DGN, IFC, PDF). In combination with Allplan BCM and CINEMA 4D, Allplan is an integrated solution for architecture, planning, construction costs and visualization.

Allplan Engineering Design is also a powerful BIM solution that supports the entire process of architectural design in design studios, as well as in construction companies. Special Allplan force Allplan lies in three-dimensional design and specification fittings, which saves time and reduces the risk of errors. Conventional two-dimensional or hybrid methods are also possible. A wide range of today’s industry standards and file formats (including DWG, DXF, DGN, IFC, PDF) are available for sophisticated data exchange. Together with Frilo Statik or Scia Engineering, Allplan Engineering Design offers an integrated solution for CAD and structural analysis from one single source. By designing and specificating the 3D reinforcement, Allplan Engineering Design sets new standards in three-dimensional design and reinforcement lay out. As a continuation of more traditional methods of working with 2D objects, Allplan Engineering Design supports BIM approach where plans ceilings, height, sections, quantities and bending plans are derived from an intelligent structure model. This contributes to the practicality of use and clarity, which helps you avoid mistakes and inaccuracies in documentation. Changes made on the model of the building or on the reinforcement structure are automatically and continuously updated on drafts and plans. Impressive documentation and powerful tools for generating the draft allow you to create project documentation that will distinguish you and set you off from other engineering offices and also allow you a more effective demonstration of the value of your work to the client.
