Hotfix Allplan 2020-1-5

Release Notes


We edited and corrected various messages of Quality Reporter. As a result, Allplan is more stable and reliable.

Allplan runs faster due to various means.


When you installed Allplan 2020-1 as a Viewer, all country packages were automatically selected. As a result, installation could take long. We solved this problem.

Note: Workgroup online will no longer be available in Allplan 2021 and later. Instead, you can purchase Allplan Share, which has been available since Allplan 2018.

Basic features

Layout editor

When you use the “Allplan Exchange Layout Distribution” tool to save layouts including resources as ZIP file in the local file storage, a PDF file of the respective plan has been stored in the Allplan program folder, too. We solved this problem.



Dimension line points that you add to an associative dimension line are associative.

Associative dimension lines in a view or section of a model open in edit mode will not be lost when you open the dialog box for selecting drawing files and delete the contents of another drawing file without changing the selection of drawing files.

Allplan automatically updates the associative dimension line of a window opening with a window SmartPart when you change the opening width by means of “Stretch Entities”.


When you modify text in the “Enter Text” dialog box, Allplan no longer matches the text selected beforehand.

After double-clicking a text, you could sometimes not modify it immediately; in particular when the text ended with a blank line. Instead, you had to click in the “Text” dialog box first. We solved this problem.

We enhanced working in the “Enter Text” dialog box.



PythonParts are easier to program and use.


AutoCAD interface

DWG export of rooms with the exchange favorite 8 no longer places the rooms’ reference points on the global point but on the first polygon point of each room boundary. As a result, you can use these rooms in FM programs, for example.

IFC interface

IFC export of 3D objects with an IfcObjectType, such as IfcRamp, no longer changes the IFC ID.


Allplan transfers bar placements with correct numbers of pieces to Bimplus.

When using the "Upload Model to Bimplus" tool, the Bimplus link of the latest uploaded project was not computed correctly, when you first had uploaded an Allplan project with an existing Bimplus project link and then changed to an Allplan project linked to a Bimplus project of another Bimplus team. Now the Bimplus link is recognized correctly.

Allplan Share

When you import data into an Allplan Share project, Allplan creates the building structure and plane model.
Allplan adjusts the locking info when you close a project.

Property manager lists all layout attributes.


You can apply the “Transfer Attributes” tool to reinforcement too.

Views and sections

When you create a new section by double-clicking an existing section with the right mouse button, Allplan no longer matches the section identifier without adjusting it.


Bar reinforcement

Schemas of 2D reinforcement placed in polygon correctly consider the component factor.

When you copy bars placed per meter and then modify the bar length by means of “Stretch Entities”, Allplan no longer copies the other placements onto themselves.

“Extrude Bars Along Path” behaves in an enhanced way when you rotate the profile about the z-axis along a round path.

You can copy area reinforcement multiple times and then modify the placing parameters without problems.

You can move a placement in view.

The “Extrude Bars Along Path” and “Sweep Bars Along Path” tools no longer remove the link between the bars and the placement when you change a placing parameter after having defined the path.

When working with the “Sweep Bars Along Path” tool, you can modify regions and then undo and redo these modifications without problems.

After you have rearranged bars placed per meter, the report outputs the correct number of pieces.
When you use “Convert, Match Elements” to convert a 3D line to a meter bar, the label correctly considers the length factor.

The “Place Bar Shape” tool matches the parameters of another placement.

When you edit already placed bars, you can now choose "Sweep Bars Along Path" in the Property palette and change the value for "Spacing".

Mesh reinforcement

Allplan automatically deletes existing labels when you create mesh labels. You can also delete mesh labels manually without problems.

Urban planning

Drawing symbol regulations

When you double-click a linear drawing symbol in a drawing file, the “Modify Drawing Symbol, Plot” tool shows the correct pattern number.

Allplan Bridge

We updated the Allplan Bridge plug-in. Details

Visual scripting

We enhanced the user interface and program in various places.
