Libraries - Python Parts

There are various improvements in the way you program and use Python Parts (for example, circular reinforcement, import of DWG data).

Bimplus interface

Bimplus imports the ‘quantity’ attribute (201) correctly.

PDF interface

Allplan exports leaders of dimension lines to PDF format.


Walls, Openings, Components

When you modify elements with label styles in the same way as you create the elements, Allplan updates the label styles correctly without increasing the drawing file data unnecessarily.

Stretching entities or joining multilayer walls layer by layer works better. Allplan now behaves in the same way as in earlier versions (2017-1-2 and earlier).


Bar Reinforcement

You can undo changes in reinforcement on several layers without any problems.

The 'Bending Machine' tool transfers spacers correctly to BVBS files.

Associative legends display all marks correctly.

Views and Sections

Associative views and sections update automatically when you add components such as railings, facade elements or foundations to the original. You no longer need to update the data manually by pressing CTRL+F5.

Bridge and Civil Engineering

You can edit data with several sections along curves more quickly.


Exchanging fixtures works better.
