Allplan Bimplus for interdisciplinary cooperation on bim projects
With Allplan Bimplus, you can merge submodels from the different disciplines and then analyze them. The Task Board ensures efficient task management and easy access to Allplan Bimplus via mobile devices enables location independent working. Allplan Bimplus provides optimum support for BIM working methods.
- Open to any construction industry software.
- Access your projects anywhere, anytime.
- Supports BIM working methods.
Manage building projects efficiently with Allplan Bimplus
Allplan Bimplus allows you to implement building projects faster, more cost effectively and with improved quality. Faster thanks to simultaneous, location independent access for all stakeholders to the current planning status and defined tasks. More costeffective and improved quality, because planning discrepancies can be detected before construction starts and be eliminated in time.
- FASTER: Compliance with deadlines with quick, clear coordination processes
- BETTER: Increased planning quality through early detection of errors and troubleshooting
- MORE COST EFFECTIVE Greater cost security through avoidance of expensive planning mistakes
Control bim projects efficiently
Using BIM working methods, bim+ allows you to control and monitor building projects over a building‘s entire life cycle. As a BIM Manager, you run an efficient project management. You are kept up to date and always able to track open and closed tasks.
Integrate data from various systems
The decisive advantage of bim+ is that you can incorporate data from any construction industry software via the API interface in Allplan Bimplus. The information contained is merged with a central coordination model and represented visually. This forms the basis for successful project management.
Communicate tasks clearly
The central coordination model forms the basis for cross-disciplinary collaboration: Here, all relevant information flows together and discrepancies are immediately visible to all. In this way, Allplan Bimplus helps with collision detection. Discrepancies identified in this way now need to be cleared up. You can use the Task Board in Allplan Bimplus to quickly and clearly coordinate the tasks with all project stakeholders. The important thing here is that the individual planners maintain full control over their own sub-models.
Access project data anywhere and anytime
What if an issue occurs when you are not at the office? No problem: You can access Allplan Bimplus at any time and from anywhere, and with any end device. You can visualize, share and process data via a browser or an app. bim+ is wherever you need it.
This is what Allplan Bimplus contains:
Allplan Bimplus is getting even more comfortable and mobile
To meet the wide variety of requirements in the building industry, the functional scope of Allplan Bimplus is regularly optimized and new applications are constantly being developed. The latest innovation is the iPad app for Allplan Bimplus. The Task Board, the section function in the Allplan Bimplus Viewer and the touch functionality have been further improved.
New iPad app for Allplan Bimplus
There is now an app specifically for the iPad, with which the operation of bim+ becomes even more comfortable. The iPad App covers the same functions as the desktop version. By means of this app you have access to your projects at all time and from anywhere.
Better overview and planning reliability in the Task Board
You use the Task Board to manage tasks and communicate efficiently with planning partners. The coordination model in Allplan Bimplus forms the basis for working with the Task Board. Together, you discuss the tasks and anchor them directly in the model, define responsibilities, priorities and due dates, and communicate them in real time.
To facilitate the use of the Task Board, the task details are now displayed more clearly and the number of work steps has been significantly reduced. In addition, the processing of tasks is now governed by role-based access rights. The task creator can open and close a task, the task processor can only assign status “Processed” to the task. This produces clear responsibilities and thus supports reliable planning.
Enhanced section function for better model control
You use the Viewer function in Allplan Bimplus to view the building model. The model can be rotated, moved, or zoomed, and you can use sections to represent certain viewing levels. The improved section function now enables you to generate section levels parallel to any existing area.
By clicking on an object in the model – such as a wall, pillar or ceiling – you define the position of the section area in the space. This section area can now be moved forward or back, which enables you to better analyze and control the model in the three-dimensional space.
Allplan Bimplus optimized for touch screens
Access to Allplan Bimplus using mobile devices with touch-screen functionality makes it easier to work independently of location, and therefore helps save time in project management with Allplan Bimplus. The optimized touch functionality convinces with larger operating elements and the option of navigating in the building model with multi-touch gestures. As a result, the use of bim+ out of the office is more user-friendly than ever before.
More comfort and flexibility by connection to MS Excel
The Add-on for the direct connection of Allplan Bimplus to MS Excel offers many benefits, especially for editing properties of building components. You import the alphanumeric information such as material, fireproof classification, weight or prices from the coordination model directly to MS Excel. There you edit properties comfortably with the well known Excel functions. The changes will be updated in Allplan Bimplus coordination model via the bidirectional connection. The content of the Excel file can also be transferred to other Excel files, third-party applications or local databases where they can be further processed.
AX3000 Virtual Reality
The add-on allows architects, engineers, planners, builders, and others involved in the construction to see a building close to reality before the groundbreaking has begun. This requires a digital building model on the Allplan Bimplus platform and an OCULUS Rift® VR lens (not included in the price). Once the VR model has been generated, the building model can be viewed immediately without editing the data. The building can be visualized in different environmental scenarios. A simulation of the sun's course is possible as well as adaptation of textures. Movement in the building can be done either via the keyboard or via an optional gamepad. This also applies to all other functions.
