Hotfix Allplan 2021-0-6

Release notes


We edited and corrected various messages of Quality Reporter. As a result, Allplan is more stable and reliable.

Allplan runs faster due to various means.


This hotfix updates WIBU licensing.

Basic features

You can change properties of elements in certain projects without problems.


Allplan Share

The layouts of an Allplan Share project are visible in Attribute Manager without you having to open the layout structure beforehand by using “Open on a project-specific basis: layouts”.

You can use Allplan Exchange to export data as often as you want even if a layout is loaded in an Allplan Share project.

You can save user-defined layout attributes in Attribute Manager in an Allplan Share project.

You can use “Delete entire layout structure” to completely delete a layout structure from an Allplan Share project again.


When you uploaded an Allplan model directly to Bimplus, earlier versions created only a reduced set of BaseQuantities for rooms. When you exported Allplan data to IFC, earlier versions already mapped “calculated” quantitative attributes to IFC Quantities. Allplan now considers these calculated attributes and maps them to Bimplus Quantities when you upload data to Bimplus.

IFC interface

When you import IFC data, Allplan automatically creates 2D door swings even if they are not part of IFC.

The new interface correctly exports recesses to IFC, even if you insert these recesses with slopes created by means of “Reference Surface” into slabs and these recesses intersect edges of the slopes.

IFC export correctly handles multilayer walls where one construction layer is not visible because its layer is hidden, even if the “Suppress grouping” option is selected in addition to the “Split multilayer components” option in the “Settings”.

IFC export correctly handles formula attributes of multilayer walls, finish specifications, and roof surfaces, even if the “Split multilayer components” option is selected in the “Settings”.

You can export data with certain smart symbols to IFC again.

Allplan downloads all selected drawing files from an Allplan Share project and exports them to IFC, even if you have not yet opened them.


Pattern lines

“Zoom All” works correctly with certain pattern lines and a large reference scale.



When you draw a wall, the first construction layer is marked with the number 1 at the crosshairs. The size of this number no longer changes with the selected reference scale.

When you update a facing created by means of the “Facing” tool, Allplan no longer changes the dimensions.


Label styles with formula attributes correctly analyze components.

The “Room group (UA) 1:50/1:100” label style (“6 Room labels” subfolder) correctly analyzes room groups again.


User-defined attributes saved in a project-specific manner are visible in the “Attribute Selection” dialog box, even if the XML file contains duplicate attribute names.

Views and sections

Allplan always considers the existing section object for displaying the view border. Consequently, the clipping path is visible when you hide and show the section object.

Clipping paths that you show in views and sections after their creation remain unchanged when you switch between drawing files. In addition, Allplan correctly selects these clipping paths for modifications.

You can use the “Modify Offset” tool to edit design entities within surface elements in sections that do not update automatically.

Allplan correctly considers the visibility settings of layers defined in the layer filter of views and sections when these layers are assigned to elements within SmartParts.

Allplan correctly displays linear fixtures in views and sections when the “Representation - as a wireframe model” option is selected in Options - Views - Representation - Fixtures.

The “Move Linked” tool works correctly when you select this tool on the shortcut menu of the view border.

Allplan runs faster because we deleted duplicates that were created together with views and sections based on model data from Allplan Bridge.

Allplan correctly modifies sections from earlier versions that you import to the current version.

Clipping paths created by means of “Show Clipping Path” in earlier versions remain unchanged when you import them to the current version.


Bar reinforcement

The “Modify Mark” tool displays the reinforcement of the selected mark in detection color again.

You can modify reinforcement in views and sections by means of the “Stretch Entities” tool without problems.

When you place a dimension line with dimension-line text, Allplan immediately updates the relevant placement, displaying it correctly.

The “Convert, Match Elements” tool correctly matches existing bar shapes.

Allplan no longer creates the schema label far from the schema.

Schemas and bending shapes of longitudinal bars created by means of the “Extrude Bars Along Path” or “Sweep Bars Along Path” tool and the “Straight delivery” option output the single lengths.

The “Sweep Bars Along Path” tool creates correct polygonal placements.

When you create longitudinal reinforcement with splices by using the “Extrude Bars Along Path” or “Sweep Bars Along Path” tool, the entire reinforcement remains connected with the path and can be modified correctly.

Allplan correctly outputs the number of pieces in the dimension-line text for 2D placements with the “Ignore number of pieces” setting.

In the case of 2D placements, you can switch between “Ignore number of pieces” and “Add number of pieces” multiple times without problems.

The “Reinforcement schedule - British Standard” report outputs spiral reinforcement as “Shape Code 77” again.

Reinforcement views

Allplan correctly displays reinforcement views from earlier versions that you import to the current version.

DT reinforcement

DT placement comes with more and enhanced functions.


You can correctly edit fixtures again. For example, you can move or rotate them.

Structural framing

After you have moved structural framing objects in the z-direction, Allplan correctly displays them in plan view.



Animation correctly displays surfaces of vertical finish specifications again.


Rendered images correctly display textures with certain transparency settings when the computer is connected via remote access and OpenGL is thus not available for all viewports.


The predefined “OpenStirrupWithArc.pyp” example (in the “Examples\PythonParts\ReinforcementExamples” folder) works correctly.

Allplan Bridge

We updated the Allplan Bridge plug-in. Details

Visual scripting

We enhanced the user interface and program in various places.

Allplan International


We adjusted the scope and transfer of parameters for Soule Export.
