Release notes (01/19/2022)
We edited and corrected various messages of Quality Reporter. As a result, Allplan is more stable and reliable.
An error message is displayed if the original setup is not available for adjustments to the installation.
Upgrade scenarios in which a previous version application was not terminated were intercepted.
Transfer of user data during installation with data copy has been optimized.
The 'Scalypso’ plugin has been updated.
The 'Road’ plugin has been updated. In the new task 'Connections' you will now find the task areas 'Sewer system' and 'Line construction'.
After selecting the menu item 'Import Revit Data' the correct dialog opens.
If openings and finishing surfaces are located on different drawing files, the finishing surfaces are now cut out correctly during export.
Different trades of finishing surfaces are now exported correctly.
Importing certain files caused the program to crash; this is now fixed.
Importing IFC4 files from certain programs is now possible again without restrictions.
Upload of linked objects in Bimplus has been improved.
By double-clicking on a drawing file, several drawing files are now unlocked or locked in one step.
Upload behavior for changes in layout attributes has been improved for shared projects.
During DWG import, the data transfer of a certain surface caused problems; this has now been fixed.
The lower attributes in the palette can be modified again.
Project attributes in user groups are now also taken into account during the upgrade.
When changing the attributes of a room in the palette, the label style could merge with the room; this has been fixed.
When generating reports in XRefs, living spaces are calculated correctly again.
The Extended Tooltip is now displayed in the correct position for all standard configurations.
We added a new syntax to prepare the version for a conversion of Allplan 2023.
In certain cases, loading text format favorites caused the program to crash; this is now fixed.
In the layout editor, the contents of detailing windows are now displayed again even if the detailing window and the model data are located in different drawing files.
When using the Vulkan mode, slanted lines are now displayed correctly. In particular, parallel lines are also displayed as such.
When modifying openings with direct object modification, the reference points of the associative dimensioning now remain unchanged.
In Vulkan mode, displaying a detailing window without loaded model data caused the program to crash; this is now fixed.
Loading large models in the animation window is now also possible in Vulkan mode.
When lowering the 'Speed / Quality' of the hardware acceleration in Vulkan mode, the 'Physical Sky' background is displayed correctly again.
The PythonPart opened with the 'Connection Toolbox' function has been extended and improved.
When replacing drawing files in the building structure, structural framing objects from previous versions are now converted correctly.
Views and Sections
Activating the reference drawing files via the shortcut menu in the building structure took a very long time when the dialog with the used reference drawing files was open; this has now been fixed.
In certain cases, the axes in the y-direction were not displayed for sections in the z-direction; this has now been fixed.
When creating additional views and sections, the existing views and sections are now no longer recalculated. This has accelerated the generation process considerably.
Point modification of grid lines of rotated axis grids in views and sections in z-direction has been improved.
When copying a section object with the clipboard, the section identifier is now changed as with all other copy functions.
When subsequently changing the resizing factors, the reinforcement included in the views and sections is now also resized correctly.
The generation of views and sections was accelerated when intersecting B-Reps with an axis grid.
The snapping of general 3D objects in views and sections has been improved.
The modification of parts in views and sections without loaded model data has been improved.
Allplan Quality Manager can now better detect problems when working with views and sections on NDW files and the 'Undo' function.
The 'Fixed pen and color for junction, division lines' option is now displayed correctly even if the 'Pen/color from layer' setting is used for the components.
When setting the transparency in the 'Objects' palette, the existing object color is now lightened again.
The geometric adjustment of niches, recesses, slits and openings is now possible again even if they have been placed in beams, columns or foundations.
The height adjustment of a recess with the view shape 'Any opening with outline saved as symbol' when using reference planes has been improved.
When starting the computer back from hibernation, creating a wall caused the program to crash; this is now fixed.
Formula attributes of finishing surfaces now evaluate all layers correctly again.
The filter for room groups works correctly again.
In the 'Objects' palette, color coding can now also be applied to stairs created with the 'Stair Modeler'.
The IFC object subtype for stairs is now written in the documentation as in the BuildingSmart definition.
Running the 'Converting data to current version' function in the Services application caused a crash for certain data with reinforcement; this is now fixed.
For 2D reinforcement, the modification of the 'Add number of pieces' parameter via the 'Place Bar Shape' entry in the Properties palette was not possible; this has now been fixed.
In the IFC export, the transfer of the geometry with the quantity data for bar reinforcement has been improved.
Modifying bent-up meshes via the properties palette has been improved.
The reference point for the coordinates of the bar list is now always in the unwinding direction on the left, even when using secondary reinforcement.
We have updated the ‘Allplan Bridge’ plug-in. DETAILS
We have enhanced the user interface and program in various places.
Interpreting bending shapes with the Shape Code Manager has been improved.
