Allplan 2024: Introducing a new Era of Productive, Collaborative and Advanced Workflows

Revolutionizing the landscape of design, prefabrication and construction, ALLPLAN announces its latest version of BIM software that accelerates the design to build process for buildings and transportation infrastructure projects.

Architects demand swift and intuitive tools for building envelope design and experimentation. Allplan's enhanced façade module streamlines the process, utilizing predefined window/door parametric components for quicker façade creation and adjustments. This advancement accelerates incorporation of opening elements into façade design while offering optimized performance and expanded functionality, enabling architects to conceive and adapt façades with enhanced speed, flexibility, and ease.

The new Content Connector in Allplan 2024revolutionizes the process of importing external 3D assets and materials, saving time for architects and consultants. Allplan's web-based workflow integrates with external providers like mtextur and 3D Warehouse, accelerating content import and customization. This enhancement streamlines tasks related to content, boosting productivity for architects and multi-disciplinary consultants.

The new Twinmotion Direct Link simplifies the exchange between Allplan and Twinmotion, allowing real-time synchronization with a click. Architects benefit from Twinmotion's realistic environment display, high-quality assets, and tools for storytelling and VR experiences. This feature empowers dynamic decision-making throughout the design process, enabling architects to visualize their projects efficiently and effectively.

For the first time, Allplan 2024 integrates the robust SDS2 steel connection engine, streamlining the modeling of standardized steel connections. Integrated checks ensure that connections are fabricable and erectable during the design phase. This approach ensures compatibility with connection modeling and design solutions, enabling architects, engineers, consultants, and contractors to provide precise project tenders.

Allplan 2024 enhances fixture administration, crucial for precast designers dealing with a multitude of precast elements requiring specific fixtures. The software streamlines fixture management, simplifying planning, invoicing, and production tasks. Addressing the scarcity of skilled workers in precast production, Allplan 2024 extends automation to mesh welding systems, considering concrete cover in joint profiles for accurate, accelerated, and error-free reinforcement workflows.

In an industry where error-free designs are non-negotiable, clash detection is indispensable. Allplan 2024 introduces seamless, end-to-end clash detection within a single software environment. By categorizing and color-coding collision types – Hard Clash, Soft Clash, Workflow Clash, and No Clash – the software provides an easy-to-use overview for quick, clear, and efficient collision checking and identification.

Allplan 2024 also introduces a Technical Preview of the BIMcollab Plugin, streamlining issue management in BIM projects. Users can now seamlessly connect to their BIMcollab project from Allplan, creating and editing issues directly within the software without the need for BCF import/export. This integration enhances workflow efficiency, saving time and ensuring consistency in the BIM process.

Highlights for transportation infrastructure

In response to the construction industry's evolving demands, Allplan 2024 offers enhanced capabilities for BIM road models. The new version enables segmentation of road models into logical sections, facilitating attribute assignment to roadway elements and preparing the model for export in the OPEN BIM IFC 4.3 format. This ensures uniform model data structure and comprehensive interdisciplinary collaboration, streamlining information exchange with design partners. Furthermore, ALLPLAN's commitment to improved BIM workflows extends to infrastructure projects. The software now supports the import of IFC 4.3 files for bridges, roads, and rails from third-party software.
