Allplan 2023

Allplan 2023 (10/12/2022)
Your AEC platform to Design and Build together

The Multi-Material Solution for ultimate Buildability

Allplan 2023 is the connecting platform for interdisciplinary collaboration between architects, engineers, precast plants and construction companies that delivers numerous innovations and improvements. As a multi-material solution, Allplan covers everything from masonry, cast-in-place concrete to steel and timber construction and - for the first time - precast concrete. The ability to coordinate different materials and construction methods in one common model enables architects to better consider the economical and sustainable use of building materials, earlier, and in accordance with environmental requirements. Engineers and construction companies can build directly on the architects' design and use it as the basis for structural analysis and detailing, MEP engineering, prefabrication and construction. Allplan supports workflows across the entire process from the initial idea to the completed project, enabling time, cost, and material savings.

  • You can create views also via a plane or freely.
  • Multimodification for the 'Remove/Add elements' tool.
  • Multimodification for the 'Show Clipping Path’ tool. 
  • For each view/ section, you can now individually configure the representation of fixtures as a wireframe model.
  • Match properties, manage favorites, and reset to default settings in the representation's sub-palettes.
  • Improved edit tools.
  • Option for passive representation of basic reinforcement in precast elements.


  • Reinforcement views has been replaced by views and sections.
  • Tools 'Extrude Bars Along Path' and 'Sweep Bars Along Path' available for PythonPart development.
  • 'Join bars' also possible for polygonal placements.
  • Switzerland: Reinforcing steel processing guideline.
  • U.S.: New default settings.
