Automation IN PRECAST INDUSTRY
PLANBAR 2019 (previously Allplan Precast) is an advanced tool, working in accordance with BIM, dedicated for design of precast structures and automatic exchange of data required for precast machines and production lines.
PLANBAR allows for automatic generation of all drawings from digital model, including formwork and shop drawings. After setting all parameters, defining rules and indicating locations of documentation components by user, program automatically generate elements and place them into the model.
BIM TECHNOLOGY IN PRECAST DESIGN AND MES
PLANBAR allows for data exchange with other programs and systems through many interfaces. The required data can be exported to production lines, operating computers or directly to machines.
The program enable user to import / export models, drawings and data in the most commonly used formats (UNI, IFC, IFC4 PRECAST, DXF, DWG, PDF, 3D-PDF, 3DS, PXML and around 40 other).
AUTOMATIC GENERATION OF DOCUMENTATION
PLANBAR combines the advantages of three-dimensional models with tools dedicated to preparation of documentation drawings. After one-time preparation of documentation template and adaptation of drawings, the documentation of each project will be automatically prepared on the basis of elements created in the 3D environment.
Moreover, changes of descriptive parameters reflects on the geometry of the model. In this way, user can work in accordance with preferable work style.
AUTOMATION OF DESIGN
PLANBAR, basing on both 2D documentation and 3D model, use well-thought-out features and specialized precast automation, at every stage of work. Precast elements can be placed into model in many different ways, it can be done with manual placement of element, either drawing of contour or just by one click inside 2D contour. Elements are immediately inserted and divided according to the parameters set by user.
tools for the design of monolithic structures
PLANBAR is based on the program Allplan, i.e. it contains all the functions included in Allplan, that make program perfectly coordinated with the basic package. Supported Allplan packages:
- Allplan Architecture (Squared, Cubed)
- Allplan Engineering Civil (Squared)
- Allplan Engineering Building (Squared)
- Allplan Engineering
- Allplan Exponential
PLANBAR supports the design process of various precast elements in many aspects. The specific modules are dedicated for different types of precast elements:
- slabs: FILIGREE (with or without filling), HOLLOWCORE (prestressed or non-prestressed), SOLID, TT-PLATE, BUBBLEDECK (Cobiax®, BubbleDeck®), CERAMIC (suspended or fixed)
- walls: SOLID, DOUBLE, INSULATED, SANDWICH
- other precast elements: stairs, balconies, pillars, beams, other
- unique precast elements
Regardless of the module, the way of design of precast elements is analogical, only the functions differ slightly in the context of specific types of elements. The video below presents some aspects and ways of designing of the filigree slabs – one of the most popular types of precast elements supported by PLANBAR. Precast filigree slabs are prepared in accordance with individual project.
