Munich, January 19, 2023 – ALLPLAN, the global provider of BIM solutions for the AEC industry, today announced that Solibri Inside will be available from within the Allplan software. The newly developed service offering from Solibri provides design model checking facilities for Allplan users. This newly enabled digital workflow solution enables quality assurance where it matters, at the source of every construction project – during the design phase, for optimum buildability.
“This development represents another important step in enabling more efficient workflows for our different user groups – pushing and raising the level of design to build quality realized through BIM. We are delighted that Allplan is connected to Solibri Inside”, says Dr. Detlef Schneider, CEO of ALLPLAN. “This new integration enables an easy quality assurance entry point for designers and compliments our unique data-based BCF real-time checking and issue management workflow with Solibri Office for BIM managers.”
Ville Kyytsönen, CEO of Solibri, stated: “Today opens the next chapter in ‘better BIM’. Solibri Inside helps Allplan users to identify and process model defects earlier. The controlled cloud-based workflow ensures quality implementation across all design stages, and a single source of truth for all project participants.”
Solibri Inside for Designers
Created as a solution for designers, Solibri Inside can run checks in Allplan models as and when the user wishes – using palette like functionality, from within the BIM Explorer in Allplan. No longer does the designer need to open other software to perform basic model checking. Solibri Inside ensures that every model can be checked upfront before sharing within the workflow to other team members.
The first release of Solibri Inside allows checking of door & window clearances and also checks for determining Level of Information (LOI). The service comes as a standard free package from Solibri and is available from within Allplan. By registering, more features are unlocked, and the Premium paid package allows the customization of rule checks to suit a designer’s specific project need, ensuring everyone in the team works with the same requirements.
Solibri Office for BIM Managers
In addition to Solibri Inside, Allplan’s powerful issue management tools now synchronize with Solibri BCF Live Connector – for a superior workflow to assist BIM Managers and Coordinators, such that issues created in the full Solibri Office version can now be transferred centrally with Allplan and Bimplus in real-time. Here the issues can be validated by the BIM Project Manager or Coordinator, and then assigned to the responsible team members, who then receive the tasks directly in the Allplan BIM authoring solution – right where they require the information. This provides an effective and efficient method for managing changes for better productivity.
Superior Issue Management
The issue management functionality powered by Bimplus is changing the way project quality is delivered. By developing workflows within Allplan clarity and transparency is brought to change management procedures. Issues can be created in either Allplan or Bimplus, assigned to the relevant person in the team, visualized, annotated, assigned a deadline, and signed off, as well as easily tracked throughout the entire process.
ALLPLAN is fully committed to bringing the benefits of cloud technology into all ALLPLAN solutions, to deliver enhanced and integrated workflows, across both cloud and desktop tools. This approach supports the concept of data driven decision making on projects involving substantial amounts of data and multiple stakeholders whilst maintaining a single source of truth through BIM. ALLPLAN’s cloud technology further offers huge value to clients supporting collaboration and full project coordination with both model and non-model data, remote working, multi-user functionality and intelligent sharing of project documentation.
