Allplan Architecture


Allplan Architecture is the ultimate BIM solution for Architects providing complete creativity and project control. The software is tailored to produce detailed design drawings, enabling unparalleled information quality.
Be more successful:

  • Define physical and functional properties
  • Professional drawings and visualizations
  • Reliable and traceable quantities and costs


Allplan offers a full range of options and maximum freedom for your planning

From the initial draft to work and detailed planning through to construction cost planning, a CAD software program with an abundance of the most diverse planning and visualization tools awaits you.

Alternating between 2D and 3D is also possible without any problems: This means you can work the way you want depending on the work phase and project. This provides optimal support for the BIM working method in particular.

Learn more about Building Information Modeling.


Allplan stands for reliable analyses and reports

Plan with cost reliability? Generate a quantity structure directly from the model? The architecture software Allplan enables you to prepare analyses for cost calculation, bidding and awarding and to derive sections and views quite comfortably from an intelligent building model. In addition, Allplan enables you to create diverse light and shadow effects for vivid and photo-realistic visualization.

Incidentally: the VOB-compliant quantity takeoff has TÜV certification in Germany.


Allplan is an open architecture software program that can be easily integrated

Allplan as an interdisciplinary platform: Data exchange in Allplan is possible in more than 50 file formats. Furthermore, plans can be comfortably distributed in various formats to planning partners via a web solution.

The simple reuse and editing of models in different Allplan solutions is greatly appreciated by architects, engineers, cost managers and facility managers. The 3D PDF-based documentation enables clear visualization and presentation.

A direct connection to Cinema 4D and Rhino enables the exchange of model and surface data and supports professional visualization.


Allplan uses the latest technology

Even projects with large data volumes are no trouble for Allplan: thanks to an excellent graphic engine, our architecture software optimally exploits the high computing power of modern graphic cards. This also accelerates the composition and editing of images.

The latest web service technologies such as the Allplan Connect service portal or Allplan Exchange support an efficient working method. This is in addition to the calculation of hidden lines in the model, which enable architects to navigate in real time in the hidden line view of their virtual building.


Allplan offers you a graphically appealing user concept

Experience an architecture software program with an intuitively understandable and graphically appealing interface. Allplan was created by designers for designers. Thanks to uniform coloring and the system-wide use of a symbolic language, functions and features can be better understood and selected in a targeted manner.


Allplan provides you with comprehensive and competent support

As a member of our Allplan Serviceplus network, you always work with an up-to-date software system and also efficiently exploit all the options that your software offers. Whether administrators, architects, office managers or managing directors: the trained architects in our support team will answer your questions quickly, extensively and reliably. Our international Allplan Connect service portal enables you to use the know-how of the world-wide Allplan community.

New Features

From the first sketch to quality cost controlling. Stronger than ever in visualization. Reliable as always in implementation planning.

Allplan 2020, now available in an attractive 30 Year Edition Bundle with high quality object and surface libraries. Integrated CineRender from Maxon. Interactive visualizations even at the design stage - thanks to the Real Time Renderer.


BIM solution Allplan 2020

Get ahead of the competition with Allplan 2020

We aim to develop an Allplan version that provides you with the best possible tools for your success. In accordance with the principles of Building Information Modeling, we help you to improve project quality, react flexibly to changes and generally work more efficiently.

Win competitions – acquire building clients

With Allplan 2020, we offer a solution that supports architects particularly in the early planning phases and in the design phase. You can now create professional, photo-realistic presentations for competitions and customer acquisitions directly from Allplan – even without in-depth expert knowledge.


Objects and Materials

Allplan 30 Year Edition offers new, top quality objects and materials for architects.

• Materials for visualization (textures including bump maps)
• Backgrounds for animation and rendering (HDRI skies)
• A wide range of new objects for finish (windows, doors, roof accessories, cranes, rows of lights and domed roof-lights as SmartParts)
• Objects for drawings, animation and rendering (trees, persons and cars as low-poly smart symbols)


Real Time Renderer

Create realistic animations in just a few seconds. Find out here how you can use the Real Time Renderer to create a realistic, interactive animation of the building model in just a few seconds. This provides you with immediate visual feedback and you can check various views, camera settings and materials to obtain the best possible scene setup.



Powerful render engine CineRender directly in Allplan. This video shows how you can generate high-resolution renderings with the help of the extremely powerful CINEMA 4D render engine (CineRender). With this, you no longer have to spend time synchronizing the models in Allplan and CINEMA 4D.


Creation of Materials

Create materials with ease using the optimized "material editor". Here, find out how you can use Allplan 2020 to create materials with the revised material editor. The video explains the use of textures, bump maps, reflections etc.


Light Setup

Reach your goal more quickly with the new light setup tool. This film explains how you can use Allplan 2020 to set the position of the sun using the "Define Surroundings" palette.


Sketch Renderer

Generate sketches directly from the 3D model. The new visualization mode "Sketch" in Allplan 2020 is ideal to derive an abstract picture of your ideas in the early design stages and thus preserve mental flexibility regarding the choice of materials for the builder. You create sketch representations in plan view, elevation view and perspective view. Of course, the design parameters can be customized in various ways.


Domed Roof-Light Object Modeler

A new object modeler makes it easier to create domed roof-lights. With the "Domed Roof-Light" object modeler, you can insert domed roof-lights in horizontal ceiling openings or roof openings at a fraction of the time it used to take.


Folding Shutter Object Modeler

Parametric modeling of folding shutters with Allplan 2020. The "Folding Shutter" object modeler enables the parametric modeling of folding shutters and provides a selection of fills; the objects can be evaluated in reports.


More than 5 Construction Layers

Define up to 20 construction layers for walls with Allplan 2020. With the new Allplan version 2020, you can now define up to 20 construction layers for walls – from the masonry, insulation, and ventilation level through to the facade panels or plaster.

For unlimited use of all new features of Allplan 2020 an graphics card with a minimum of 1 GB RAM needs to be available.
In addition Allplan 2020 will only be available for Windows 64 Bit.
