Hotfix Allplan 2021-1-5

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.

Basic features

Copies from the clipboard are immediately visible after you have pasted them. You no longer need to select the Esc key.

Data conversion

You can convert data from Allplan 2021-1-3 with associative views and sections to versions 2019 and 2020 without problems.

You created a straight dimension line in feet and saved this setting as a project favorite in an earlier version. After you have converted the data of the entire project, you can use this favorite in the current Allplan version.


Allplan computes SmartParts in XRefs inserted multiple times even if the drawing file with the model data, which is used as the reference, is closed.


You can use the “Stretch Entities” tool without problems even if you select all objects in the drawing file by using Ctrl+A and enter a value.


The selected drawing type also applies to the representation of library elements in the Library palette.


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


  • We enhanced the placement of main reinforcement.
  • We enhanced the placement of lateral longitudinal reinforcement.
  • Some values appeared in meters instead of imperial units. We solved this problem.

You can save a copied PythonPart as a 3D model without problems.

User-defined objects


When you create another linear fixture by using the right mouse button to double-click a linear fixture previously moved, Allplan places the new fixture in the correct position.

You can create fixture groups from elements with views and sections.


DWG interface

Since Allplan 2021 you have been able to use a room stamp to place the base point within a room. Rooms (including stamps) will be detected by CAFM programs such as waveware. To exchange data with waveware, you can use the new “room stamp FM” label style, which analyzes the name, function, and base area of the room. You can find the “room stamp FM” in the “Select label style” dialog box - Default folder - “1 Room stamp” subfolder.

IFC interface

IFC export includes structural framing objects in advanced XRefs.

“IfcMaterialLayerSet” gets the name that you assigned by means of the “code text” attribute to the entire component or the first layer of multilayer components. Various other programs use this name when processing the data.



Elevation lines in floor-area calculations placed in a drawing file have specific format properties and can thus be filtered.


When using the “Mount 3D Model in Image” tool, you can enter the reference line in the bitmap again.

Views and sections

Views and sections do not disappear when you use area detection to create surface elements in views and sections and automatically reload drawing files.


Bar reinforcement

After you have moved the entire contents of the drawing file by using a selection rectangle or Ctrl+A, the positions of placements created by means of the “Extrude Bars Along Path” tool do not change even if you modify these placements.

After you have undone a move, you can copy schemas without problems.

You can use the rebar filter to delete the entire reinforcement without problems.

You can delete reinforcement from PythonParts saved as 3D models without problems.

The full schema and partial schema appear in the selection color when you modify a bar by using the “Modify Mark” tool.

After you have used the “Modify Placement” tool to modify a single placement in views and sections, Allplan correctly displays this single placement.

After you have used the “Modify Number Off Factors” tool to modify a placement in views and sections, Allplan correctly displays this placement.

To modify the placement display mode, you can also reselect the placements in isometric views that automatically update themselves.

You can change the position of the placement relative to the placing line without problems.

Allplan no longer selects the entire placement when you select some bars of the placement.

You can split bars along a polyline with an overlap without problems.

When you select the “Check number of pieces for partial schemas and full schemas” option of the “Element Information” tool and the check is successful, the relevant placements are no longer visible in the views and sections.


The mesh label remains unchanged when you modify a mesh placement by means of the “Modify Mark” tool. The settings in the “Label” tool no longer apply.

The preview of the mesh label is correct when you rotate a mesh placement in views and sections.


You can create couplers for bars with circular segments without problems.

Standard couplers and position couplers of the “Dextra - Fortec” manufacturer for bar diameter 25 are in the correct position.

When you create polygonal placements by means of the “Split bars and create coupler connection” tool, the bending pins that are different from the default setting remain unchanged and the schema table outputs the correct bar lengths.

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 also create slab elements as architectural objects.
