3D modeling in Allplan: more freedom and precision


New possibilities in the field of 3D modeling

As one of the leading software manufacturer in the AEC industry, for years ALLPLAN has been an innovative pioneer in the area of 3D design, from 3D modeling to component-oriented, digital building models as the basis for the BIM design method. 3D design reduces the risk of errors and promotes greater efficiency.

Parasolid® software from Siemens PLM Software enables Allplan to provide completely new options in the field of 3D modeling: greater freedom when creating volume and surface models while increasing precision and performance. In addition to the advanced functionality, you also benefit from increased and accelerated display quality in the animation window and much faster calculations in Boolean operations and other 3D modeling processes. Avoiding polygonization increases precision while also reducing memory requirements.



The Parasolid modeling kernel helps you to deal with large, complex models at the highest level. It will make your file management more consistent and reliable. Data transfer compatibility is guaranteed during the entire planning process. Parasolid XT data files account for up to 45% of all 3D model data saved worldwide. With enhanced functionality, improved performance and increased quality, the Parasolid modeling kernel is an impressive and effective tool in the AEC industry.

"In short, Parasolid has a well-earned reputation as highquality, reliable component software that provides customers with the functionality, flexibility and robustness they require, delivered with frequent updates that enable performance and functionality gains to be implemented as quickly and simply as possible."
