Allplan presents the BIM solution Allplan 2017-1: More time for the essentials

Numerous enhancements for maximum ease in task management and 3D modeling.
Optimized data exchange via IFC4.
- Wide selection of threaded joint systems

Allplan presents new improvements and advances in its BIM Allplan 2017 solution for architects and engineers. The current version makes collaboration through all the disciplines of a BIM project of maximum efficiency.

For users, this is reflected in greater transparency, more time savings and greater quality in the project.

Allplan 2017-1 offers powerful tools for establishing seamless collaboration among all partners in a BIM project. For example, the new "Taskbar" palette, which is directly connected to the open solution based on the bim + cloud, allows the tasks to be assigned in a specific way, managed easily and can be tracked. In this version, the Taskbar is even easier to use. Planning errors can be identified and corrected in the early stages.

Efficient working processes for modeling in 3D

At present, there are no longer limits in the modeling and modification of solids, free forms and components. 3D solids can be accurately modeled without prior polygonalisation. When working with user-defined freeform elements, users now have a lot more flexibility.

Improved IFC4 export

Allplan 2017-1 makes it easy to export BIM models to IFC4 format for the first time. Interaction with other BIM solutions has been significantly improved, information losses and inaccuracies have been reduced considerably. With Allplan 2017-1, finishing specifications, 2D elements and legends can now be exported through the IFC4 interface - which helps improve the quality of planning.

New catalogs of threaded joints

Threaded joints are essential for placing reinforcing bars in confined spaces. If they are not stored in the system, they must be processed manually. With Allplan 2017-1, the Ancotech BARON-C and SAH SAS 670 / 800 catalogs have been incorporated into existing joins in the system. With the current and updated selection of threaded joints, users will save time and improve the quality of their drawings.
