Hotfix Allplan 2021-1-4

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.



When you apply the “Rotate” tool to text, you can use the end point of existing text as the base point and direction point for the rotation.


When you use the “Copy and Paste, Rotate” tool, you can switch the rotation point or change the direction of the element.


The “Combine Lines to Make Polylines” tool also combines lines having symbols at the start or end without displaying a message.


AutoCAD interface

You can use “Exchange favorite 1” to transfer any layout to DWG.

Allplan Share, Bimplus

The name of the current Allplan Share project no longer gets the temporary “(BIMPLUS)” suffix each time you switch between the “Workgroup” and “Recent projects” tabs in the “New Project, Open Project” dialog box.

Allplan Share

After you have edited and changed layout data, Allplan Share correctly updates the layout when you open it on another computer.

IFC interface

IFC 4 import considers “IfcCivilElement” objects.

IFC export handles profile walls in the same way as straight walls, including the surfaces of profile walls.

If the “Split multilayer components...” - “Wall” option is selected on the “Advanced options” tab in the “IFC Export, Import Settings”, IFC 4 export handles the attributes of a profile wall or freeform wall in the same way as the attributes of a split, straight wall.

IFC export correctly transfers project attributes defined in “Project Settings” - “Assign attributes” - “Custom Classification”.



Allplan 2021-1-0 came with new PythonParts for automated reinforcement. We enhanced the user interface and functionality of these PythonParts in various places. We implemented the following enhancements for the individual components:


  • We removed the routine that checks for clearance between the bottom bars.
  • We enhanced the hook length calculation for main rebar.
  • We enhanced the placement of longitudinal side rebar.


  • Bars generated around openings no longer have bending pin values of 0.
  • We added additional messages to notify the user of special rebar placement conditions, related to the general rebar parameters.
  • We solved a problem that led to an error in Allplan Quality Manager.



You can change the layer setting of a slab in the “Properties” palette, even if the slab has the “Surface spread of flame” attribute.


The optimized “Collision Check” tool checks many objects much faster.

Views and sections

You can copy neither clipping paths nor views and sections from a wizard into the drawing file. A message tells you that this is not possible.

Sections correctly display rotated components whose hatching is defined with the “Hatching in component direction” option.

When you select the clipping path together with the section object by opening a selection rectangle, Allplan correctly selects all enclosed and intersected elements.

You can modify the section object by means of the “Modify Offset” tool without problems.

The gridlines of an axis grid are visible in views and sections even after you have exported and imported drawing files with resources.

Structural framing

Allplan correctly handles structural framing objects inserted in an XRef when you move or rotate the XRef or export IFC data.


Bar reinforcement

When you use the “Stretch Entities” tool to modify bars placed per meter in views and sections, Allplan correctly displays the bars immediately after the modification.

The formwork is still visible even if you modify bar lengths in views and sections by means of the “Stretch Entities” tool multiple times.

When you modify the spacing of a placement created by means of the “Extrude Bars Along Path” tool, Allplan no longer mirrors this placement along the placement path.

When you define the location of area reinforcement in space, the layer depth, which appears as a construction line, is visible across the entire placing region.

When you move individual views and sections, Allplan no longer moves the reinforcement model of area reinforcement in these views and sections.

When you apply the “Rotate” tool to labels, you can use the existing label as the reference line.

The “Reinforcement schedule - bending shapes” report lists the correct number of pieces for 2D bar shapes placed in polygon.


You can mirror mesh placements with visible overlap values without problems.


When you modify the parameters of couplers in the article editor of coupler manufacturers that offer several languages, the drop-down menu for language selection no longer includes additional blank lines.

Couplers are visible in schemas of bars placed in polygon.


You can copy fixtures in the “Edit Element” tool without problems.

Element plan

You can use the “Stretch Entities” tool to change several secondary bars in a single operation in the element plan.

Allplan Bridge

We updated the Allplan Bridge plug-in. Details

Visual scripting

We enhanced the user interface and program as well as warped slabs (”Warped Slabs” task area) in various places.

You can create architectural beams in addition to architectural walls and architectural columns.

Allplan International


The label in the US direction symbol is correct when you apply the “Rotate” and “Copy and Rotate” tools to clipping lines in US standard style and enter an angle.

The “Soule Export” tool transfers the “Ifc ID” attribute to uniquely identify elements.

If a drawing file contains elements with different “Release IDs”, you can run the “Soule Export” tool multiple times to export the elements with the different values.
