You can upload planning data to Bimplus from different planning tools and in various ways.
The easiest way to upload data to Bimplus is to upload the data straight from Allplan. As Allplan is directly connected to Bimplus, you do not need to export or convert the data to an appropriate format first.
However, you can also export data from other (specialist) planning tools and choose an appropriate data format (usually IFC, but SketchUp files are also possible). You can then upload the exported data to Bimplus. Using Bimplus API (application programming interface), you can even program a service for this purpose. In any case, the data format you use must comply with IFC standards.
After import the data must be in the correct position so that the various specialist models can be placed exactly on one another. The only way to ensure this is to define the origin of the common coordinate system in advance so that all planning partners involved in the project can use this coordinate system for their planning. Otherwise, you have to move the models manually later, thus making sure they are congruent (see "Moving specialist models “).
