Data Exchange

With Allplan, you can save time in the initial planning phase and the project starts successfully, regardless of which software solutions your project partners use. Starting with the simple creation of a 3D model and the import of data with different file formats.

In the BIM age, the model will be available as a master model in IFC format. Of course, models can also be created, supplemented, or modified independently. Allplan supports over 50 file formats so that project data from Revit, Rhino, SketchUp, etc. can be used.

Terrain Survey

Precise documentation of the existing situation is important before any project planning. As-built documents such as cadastral or land registry plans, as PDFs or image files, can be processed within Allplan as a basis for the planning of conversions or new infrastructure models.

To enable fast evaluation times, Scalypso provides a range of tools for site point cloud surveys and allows the reconstructed 3D elements to be transferred to Allplan via a real-time interface.

BIM Coordination

The coordination of tasks with the synchronized Allplan and Bimplus Issue Manager is a real advantage. In the native interface to Allplan, data transfer works efficiently. Bimplus Issue Management is open and can handle IFC and BCF (both OPEN BIM standards).

- All parties involved access the same level of information.
- Important decisions can be made earlier.
-The construction process runs faster and more smoothly.

2 \ Modeling
Free-form Modeling

All types of 3D elements can be created with Allplan, no matter how complicated the project. Any free-form geometries can be modeled and converted so that Allplan recognises them as components and takes them into account in quantity takeoff, for example. The free-form modeler makes it easy to create a wide range of complex shapes. Precise execution planning is possible even for the most complex shapes.

Parametric Modeling

Utilities of the road body, such as manholes and sewer and service lines, can be placed fully parametrically in the situation and adapted according to the course of the road. The line and manhole profiles are selected from a library and can also be easily adapted subsequently.

Visualization

Visualization facilitates cooperation and communication between project participants. All disciplines can analyse the model together for details, improvements, etc. The visual representation of the structural elements also facilitates feedback. Thanks to excellent visualisation quality with Allplan, structural features such as the level of detail of the reinforcement can be checked in real time and discrepancies can be resolved quickly.

3 \ Model Analysis
Variant Studies

A study of different model variations is particularly easy thanks to the drawing file system. The performance in the programme as well as user performance when editing individual model areas is vastly improved by the drawing file system. Allplan is particularly suitable for large, complex projects because of the comprehensible structuring of data.

Construction Site Equipment

With Allplan, you can also plan the construction site layout. Every construction site is different and therefore requires individual, precise planning. To support you in this challenge, Allplan offers objects, such as a tower crane with collision detection as well as simple lift evaluation. These are particularly easy to customise and can also be linked to specific manufacturer data.

The collaboration functionality and powerful tools allow for quick detailing of variants, which allows for effective management of changes and for the rapid creation of accurate site and construction requirements.

Change Management

After the variant study and static structural analysis calculations, it is quite normal that there are changes in the model. Thanks to Bimplus, these changes can be conveniently documented, which facilitates the smooth running of the construction project from start to finish..

With Bimplus, you can easily represent models as variants and revisions that can be compared, adjusted and managed. With the help of easy-to-create slide shows, you have an excellent basis for presentations and for decision-making in construction meetings.

4 \ Deliverables
General Arrangement Drawings

General arrangement drawings provide a complete representation of the structure in one plan. The first step is to analyse the 3D model and the information it contains using appropriate tools. With Allplan's easy-to-use associative views and sections, you can quickly create such a plan and thus visualise the entire structure comprehensively. Subsequently, changes to the model can be easily understood and the position of individual elements can be more clearly recognised in the subsequent project phases.

Structural Drawings

The creation of accurate structural drawings is indispensable for the production of the concrete elements on the construction site. In the first step, the structural drawing should provide an overview of the exact geometry and dimensions of the concrete elements.

With Allplan you can rapidly create detailed structural drawings for reinforced concrete structures. Sections and views can be quickly and easily adapted in their representation. This speeds up the drawing creation enormously.

Reinforcement Drawings

In Allplan, reinforcement is created as a 3D model. As a result, you save time and create a reliable basis for design documents. The positioning is created only once and then automatically adopted in all sections that are derived from it. This makes it particularly easy to either detect collisions visually or to identify them automatically via the collision check. Finally, precise steel lists are derived at the touch of a button via intelligent Allplan reports.

Sections in Allplan are also a particularly helpful tool for placing reinforcement.

Gotthard Base Tunnel

Switzerland

The scheduled commissioning on December 11, 2016, marked the end of the project of the century – the Gotthard Base Tunnel – after nearly 20 years of building time. Its route length of 57 kilometers through the Saint-Gotthard Massif between Erstfeld and Bodio makes the Gotthard Base Tunnel the longest rail tunnel in the world.

Versamertobel Bridge

Graubünden Canton, Switzerland

As an example of steel bridge building at the turn of the century, the structure is of considerable historic value, but it is no longer up to the demands of current times. The bridge has been deemed worthy of preservation and therefore has escaped being torn down and instead continues to serve the traveler as an additional link for slower traffic. Find out how Allplan helped in this challenging project.
