Features Allplan Architecture 2020
Creation of columns optimized
With the optimized column tool, you can now create fillets and chamfers directly without having to define your own cross-section beforehand. In addition to saving time and ease of use, the subsequent adjustment of the columns has now also been simplified.
Great time savings due to offset planes
An offset plane is linked to another plane. When the reference plane is changed, the offset plane automatically adjusts itself and with all elements linked to it. This even works for several floors simultaneously.
New Modeler for Steel Structures
You no longer need a separate steel solution to model simple steel structures without connections (LOD 300). Supports and beams can be created and modified using a modern user interface based on property palettes and handles.
With the Real Time Renderer in Allplan 2020, you can now define different light temperatures. You can use tone mapping to achieve a warmer, neutral or cold appearance. White balance corrects the color temperature of natural light sources such as sky and sun. And thanks to the two-point perspective, distortions can be eliminated in no time at all.
More flexibility when labeling grids
You can now label the grids in Allplan 2020 exactly as you need them. Labeling is done using a palette or directly in the model.
Working even more productively with the staircase modeler
New features have been added to the staircase modeler introduced with the Allplan 2019 version to further simplify operation and increase productivity. For example, there are now new offset profiles with which passage heights and widths can be visually checked. The latter is particularly advantageous when working with complex geometries. Operation is via a modern user interface based on property palettes and handles.
Improvements in handling attributes
In order to make the handling of attributes even more comfortable and consistent, numerous extensions and improvements have been made to attribute management. Among other things, the attributes can now also be exported as formatted Excel files. In addition, the object palette has been extended so that objects can now be filtered by attribute. The filtered objects can be highlighted in color for better visual control. The model itself can be displayed transparently. In this way, incorrectly assigned attributes can be identified more quickly.
Always correct values with associative dimensioning
With Allplan 2020 you always keep your dimensioning up to date. Linear dimension lines remain connected to the objects. When you make a change, the dimensioning automatically adjusts itself.
More stability, more performance, more usability. These are the results of the comprehensively optimized Allplan tools for cross-team collaboration, the Allplan Workgroup Manager and Allplan Share. In addition to a project backup, the amount of data to be transferred over the network was reduced, which has a noticeable effect on response times.
Further development of interfaces
The IFC interface is continuously being further developed. The full support of NURBS bodies during import has improved the exchange of free-form geometry. In addition, different attributes can be assigned correctly during import and export. The SketchUp interface now supports the 2018 format, the CPIXML export has been updated to version 1.7.
