New Features Allplan Architecture 2018

Always having the right tools at hand

With the new actionbar in Allplan Architecture 2018, you will find the tools you need for your particular tasks via a series of ribbons. The actionbar is structured according to different roles and tasks so that function groups, such as modeling, drafting or visualization, are available to you. As in a clearly arranged toolbox, you will find all of the appropriate Allplan functions in the respective group and can get to the task at hand straight away.

The right representation for every screen

No matter what the end device or monitor format you are working with, Allplan Architecture 2018 automatically adapts its user interface to the screen size and resolution. The automatic scalability gives you more flexibility when choosing your work device and provides a consistent and convenient user experience.

Advanced data export of BIM data with IFC4

With Allplan Architecture 2018, you can share all kinds of BIM model data, including freeform geometry, to your design partner without any losses. This improves the quality and precision of your BIM model data significantly. Furthermore, IFC4 enables better control across the BIM project and makes the decision making processes easier with all of the key stakeholders involved in the construction project.

Improvements in the area of sections and views

The new labeling function in Allplan Architecture 2018 ensures consistent and correct labeling of objects within sections and views. Since the labeling is linked with the information in the BIM model, all changes are automatically updated in all of the sections and views linked with the model.

Efficient Information Management

With the combination of Allplan Architecture 2018 and the BIM platform Allplan Bimplus, you can easily handle the exchange of thousands of pieces of information in BIM projects. You can use Allplan Bimplus to centrally define information and then use it in different systems and disciplines throughout the entire life cycle of a building. This makes you more flexible in dealing with information and improves the data exchange via IFC and Allplan Bimplus.

3D Modeling without Compromise

Enhanced development in the area of 3D modeling in Allplan Architecture 2018 allows you to implement your visions without compromise and with the highest level of precision. The new features allow for intelligent and enhanced creation and manipulation of freeform 3D objects thus enabling more flexibilty for the modeling of complex curved shapes.

Visualizations are now even more realistic

Developments in the area of visualization increases and improves the quality of visualization. The CineRender from MAXON, now integrated in Allplan Architecture 2018, allows for the use of physical rendering to achieve even more realistic results. The representation quality of the animation window is also significantly improved.

New option: Simplified collaboration via Allplan Share

With the option of Allplan Share and Allplan Architecture 2018, you benefit from a direct collaboration with design partners around the world with the same Allplan data. Allplan Share is based on the BIM platform Allplan Bimplus and offers you additional functions, such as the Model Viewer, Task Board and Revision control. With Allplan Share, you reduce your administrative effort and save additional costs associated with a local server. Allplan Share
