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 the data you want to download.

You can use the data of the objects downloaded (geometry and attributes) as the basis for specialist design in your planning tool. This helps you create as collision-free a specialist model as possible, which you can integrate easily into the overall building model.

To download specialist models to Allplan

When you do your specialist design in Allplan, you can download specialist models straight from Allplan.

Allplan places the data downloaded on the BIMPL_REF layer. When you upload your specialist model to the Bimplus project, all objects on this layer will be ignored 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 have used your Allplan workstation to sign in to Bimplus 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“.
