If other planning partners have already saved model data (ideally, data of the architectural model) in a Bimplus project, you can download this data from Bimplus. In doing so, you can choose to download the data completely or just parts thereof.

You can use the data of the objects downloaded (geometry and attributes) as the basis for doing the specialist planning with your planning tool. This helps you create as clash-free a specialist model as possible. As a result, you can easily integrate this specialist model into the overall building model after you have uploaded it to the Bimplus project.

Downloading specialist models to Allplan

When you do the specialist planning in Allplan, you can download specialist models directly from Allplan.

Allplan places the data downloaded on the BIMPL_REF layer. When you upload your own specialist model to the Bimplus project, all objects on this layer will be ignored even if they are visible. This protects the original model data of the other planning partners from being changed or overwritten.

You can download a reference model only if you signed in to Bimplus from Allplan and you have appropriate rights for the Bimplus project.

Note: You can find further information in the Allplan Help; see “Downloading a reference model from Bimplus“.
