ALLPLAN has Released an Update to their BIM Product
By Aarti Dhapte, 29 November, 2022
ALLPLAN, a provider of BIM solutions for the AEC industry, has published the Allplan 2023 version of its BIM software. Allplan 2023, as a linking platform for interdisciplinary collaboration among architects, engineers, precast plants, and construction firms, provides efficient coordination and collaborative workflows. The multi-material solution incorporates masonry, cast-in-place concrete, steel, wood construction, and precast concrete for the first time.
The ability to combine several materials and construction methods in a single model enables architects to address the economic and ecological use of building materials earlier and in accordance with environmental regulations. Engineers and construction firms can use the architects' design as the foundation for structural analysis and detailing, MEP engineering, prefabrication, and construction. Allplan 2023 facilitates workflows from concept to completion, providing time, cost, and material savings.
Allplan 2023 offers a comprehensive platform for effective coordination and interdisciplinary collaboration throughout the design and construction process, from basic design to site and precast design execution planning. Quick and straightforward modeling is critical for efficiency in building design. The properties palette has been changed to allow creating and adjusting apertures in walls and slabs to be easier, more flexible, and faster. As a result of increasingly complicated construction projects and the move toward ever more precise planning, data volumes are continually expanding. Terrain surveys or point clouds with millions of points present a unique set of challenges. Allplan 2023 processes such data directly on the graphics card. Thus, large amounts of data can be securely processed without time delays or memory limits. Designing and detailing reinforcement is also faster than ever. Allplan's automated reinforcement modeling is a significant aspect. It is now even more effective in Allplan 2023, with the option to simultaneously strengthen numerous similar walls and columns. The reinforcement assignment has been completely changed in response to the expanding number of needs in BIM projects. Allplan 2023 offers several new features that enable positioning reinforcements in the modeled structure quicker, faster, and more intuitive than ever before. The newly integrated precast design and finishing characteristics characterize Allplan 2023. As a result, engineering firms and precast facilities can manufacture even the most complex precast components on a single platform with a user-friendly interface. This simplifies project coordination while also allowing for new, more efficient workflows.
