New Features Allplan Engineering 2018

Always having the right tools at hand

With the new actionbar in Allplan Engineering 2018, you will quickly find exactly the tools you need for your particular tasks. The menu bar is structured according to different roles (architecture, engineering,...) and tasks so that function groups, such as for modeling, reinforcement or plan creation, are available to you. As in a clearly arranged toolbox, you will find all of the appropriate Allplan functions in the respective group and can get to business straight away.


The right representation for every screen12Bildschrim-Darstellung

No matter the end device or monitor format you are working with, Allplan Engineering 2018 automatically adapts its user interface to the screen size and resolution. The automatic scalability gives you more flexibility when choosing your work device and provides for consistent convenient operation of the program.

Advanced data export of BIM data with IFC4

With Allplan Engineering 2018, you can send all kinds of BIM model data, including freeform geometry and reinforcement, to your planning partner completely and without any losses. This improves the quality and precision of your BIM model significantly. Using IFC4 also leads to better control across the BIM project and supports the decision-making processes with all of the those people involved in the structure.

Data exchange with SCIA Engineer at the push of a button

With the Allplan Engineering 2018 version, data transfer is done in one step at the push of a button with the structural analysis software SCIA Engineer. There is no more any export and import of supporting structure models. The direct connection to SCIA Engineer simplifies the interaction between the construction and structural analysis considerably, thus simplifying the collaboration in the engineering office.

Efficient information management

With the combination of Allplan Engineering 2018 and the BIM platform Allplan Bimplus, you can easily handle the exchange of thousands of pieces of information in BIM projects. You can use Allplan Bimplus to centrally define information and then use it in different systems and disciplines throughout the entire life cycle of a structure. This makes you more flexible in dealing with information and improves the data exchange via IFC and Allplan Bimplus.

Intuitive workflows with general arrangement drawings

The associative views in Allplan Engineering 2018 allow you to make changes to the general arrangement drawings at any appropriate position – whether in the model, a certain section or a view. All other plans and models associated with this are updated immediately without the files being blocked for other users in the process. This increases the productivity in the general arrangement drawings through simplified working and consistent documents.


3D modeling without compromising

A multitude of optimizations in the area of 3D modeling in Allplan Engineering 2018 allow you to implement your visions without compromising: very simple, very flexible and with the highest level of precision. The new features include the multiple modification of the format properties for free-formed 3D objects, the shell tool and "B-spline" curves for the simpler and more flexible creation of curved shapes.


Reinforcement of complex supporting structures in 3D

With Allplan Engineering 2018, you can now conveniently generate a 3D model of the reinforcement of double-curved supporting structures with varying cross-sections, such as for bridge structures, within the shortest of times and BIM-compliant. The reinforcement is defined in different cross sections and the transitions between the cross sections are described with different paths. In addition, various rules can be stored, such as how the reinforcement impacts are to be designed. Using this information, the software generates the reinforcement model automatically.

Creating your own parametric objects, with PythonParts, is a few steps away with Allplan Engineering 2018. Combine basic elements from the predefined building sets and join them together visually and completely individually according to their respective requirements. Among others, you will find columns, girders, downstand beams, foundations and stairs in the building sets.

New option: Simplified collaboration via Allplan Shareallplan-share

With the Option Allplan Share and Allplan Engineering 2018, you benefit from a direct collaboration with planning partners around the world with one and the same Allplan data. Allplan Share is based on the BIM platform Allplan Bimplus and offers you additional functions, such as the Model Viewer, Task Board or Revision control. With Allplan Share, you reduce your administrative effort and save additional costs for the acquisition and maintenance of a local server.
