When creating a wall, you can match the properties of a single wall layer from a wizard, even if you have already matched the whole wall from the wizard.
While you are drawing walls, the component axis is visible in the preview when “Display component axes” is selected in the “Options” on the “Components and architecture” page.
You no longer need to click the “Undo” tool twice to remove a new wall.
Slabs intersect downstand beams or upstand beams again (element interaction).
You can change the angle of a roof surface that is linked with frame-construction elements.
You apply a fill to a room by means of “Assign Surface Elements to Rooms, Surfaces, Stories”. Allplan detects this room again when you click within the surface element while working with “Reshape Surface Element, Architectural Area”.
Views and sections display “Vertical covering, outside” (for example, exterior plaster) of a story in the area of the ceiling, even if the covering is defined with a condition and the ceiling is in a separate drawing file.
You can apply a roof covering of the “Fully bounded roof planes (dormers) are ignored” input type to dormers without problems.
The carriage can have an “Offset at bottom” that is smaller than the tread thickness. In addition, the support corbel at the half-space landing is correct.
Views and sections
When you import sections created in a previous version to the current version, Allplan correctly displays these sections without you having to change the settings for displaying edges.
When you create and edit section objects, Allplan presents only unassigned numbers for the section identifiers.
When you create or show the clipping path in an existing view or section, Allplan uses the layer selected in the palette.
Allplan correctly hides the clipping path when you do this by using the “Show Clipping Path” and “Modify Section” tools.
When you click “Match” on the shortcut menu of a section displayed in a wizard, Allplan opens the “Clipping Path” tool and matches the section settings from the wizard.
You can “Undo” several sections that you create and place in succession.
The model and the section are in different drawing files. When you save the drawing file with the section as an NDW file, you can now open the NDW file without seeing a message, and the intersected model is still available as an 2D outline.
When you assign a different surface to a color by means of the “Modify View” tool, Allplan immediately updates the view as soon as you confirm by clicking “OK” and “Apply”. This also applies to changes to computed lines. You no longer need to select “Reorganize Drawing Files” or Ctrl+F5.
