Civil engineering is one of the oldest engineering disciplines, but also a very challenging one.
Engineers for years have trouble planning complex geometries, like buildings and other heavy civil projects with accurate workflows and professional 3D models.
But with Allplan BIM software, these issues are now a thing of the past.
Allplan has developed effective BIM solutions for the civil engineering industry that engineers can use to efficiently model and reinforce concrete structures with the highest accuracy possible.
Allplan offers a variety of innovative solutions to help civil engineers design infrastructure projects more easily, in a timely fashion, and within budget.
Today we will discuss some of these BIM solutions and Allplan’s best features to make an engineer’s life easier.
Let’s take a look at the top features that Allplan has to offer for 2022.
Thanks to the improved work processes, the latest version of the Allplan software is more efficient than ever before.
This software for civil engineers comes with brand-new adjustments that accelerate many work processes, essential for handling any complex civil project without waiting for lengthy calculations or re-rendering your designs.
So with the new Allplan’s improved performance, you can easily:
– Process complex components
– Open and edit drawing files
– Reinforce structural objects
– Model free-form geometry
– Make detailed reports
The new functions in the Allplan software for civil engineering allow you to work with BIM 3D models much faster than ever before. You can easily upload your 3D model and have complete control over the design quality of any building model.
Also, to make the coordination and decision-making process more effortless, the Allplan software offers a feature for inviting multiple users with view-only privileges.
Thanks to the automated reinforcement rules, every engineer can significantly speed up the reinforcement design process of walls, columns, and beams.
The civil engineers will be able to precisely specify all reinforcement rules that apply to the spacing, offsets, reinforcement ratio and more, in a most convenient way with accurate views and sections.
In return, this will save them a lot of time and reduce any errors from an easy stage of the reinforcement design.
The improved Allplan’s Teamwork Sharing allows you to share your project designs and data files with other team members in a fast and secure way.
This feature allows you to collaborate with multiple users on the same projects, significantly speeding up the design processes (and reducing the waiting time).
The new teamwork sharing feature also includes an intelligent caching mechanism that enables productive work even with a limited Internet connection.
This BIM software also offers all the information you need in one place, thanks to its accurate attributes.
The system supports consistent data input and retrieval of attributes, which ensures that engineers get precise project-related information at all times. So with Allplan now, inconsistent information is a thing of the past.
The new attributes can also be assigned with an “undefined” status and can contain formulas for fast and easy calculations.
Allplan software has introduced new nodes for easier Visual Scripting that will allow you to design, model, and edit your project designs or structural objects more efficiently.
The new nodes significantly speed up the creation of the scripts, because they can be inserted directly on the working canvas with a double click.
The new nodes give engineers the ability to create large-scale models with thousands of detailed components while providing maximum performance without compromising on model quality no matter how complex your projects are.
In addition, there are new filter functions that allow you to manage the attributes more easily, so you can modify, assign or remove attributes with just a few clicks.
The new Allplan’s AutoConverter can successfully convert building models to analytical in a smart and convenient way.
The analytical model can contribute to better synchronization between engineers and architects who can collaborate seamlessly from different entry points to the data which is conveniently stored on the cloud.
This makes analytical data accessible to all people working on the project (instead of being stuck on a single computer).
The import feature is significantly improved and allows any native Allplan objects such as walls, windows, doors, columns, ceilings, or roofs to be easily created during the import.
The best part is that you can now directly import the Revit models into Allplan without the need to convert them to IFC format.
The exporting of the IFC models is also improved, so now you can choose whether objects are exported the way you want.
Allplan software is the world’s most powerful BIM solution because of its unique features that enable civil engineers to efficiently model, detail, and reinforce concrete structures with complex geometry.
Breon has been a proud customer of Allplan for many years now, because we believe in investing in high-quality software that gives us a competitive advantage and allows us to stay relevant in the market.
Since our goal is to provide only the best BIM solutions on the market, we train our civil engineers from the very beginning with Allplan’s latest features.
