> Create your design in 2D or 3D, whatever you like.
Planbar is a 3D CAD tool that was created with the goal of bringing precast design and detailing to a new degree of efficiency and accuracy. Walls, slabs, and structural precast elements like stairs may now be designed faster and more precisely than ever before. Many automation capabilities, such as 1-click reinforcement, import of architectural models and fixtures, fully automated development of shop drawings, and arbitrary switching between 2D and 3D working techniques with 100% consistency every second, allow you to handle a bigger workload.
Planbar enables you to model all types of precast elements, including walls, slabs, and structural precast elements like stairs and columns, with ease.
With a single click, you can create shop drawings that include reinforcing, fixtures, and dimensions. Take use of intelligent templates. You will automatically receive your personalized plan layout for each precast element type.
Planbar automatically generates the basic reinforcement for all types of walls and slabs. The Slabs, Walls, and Assets packages all have this time-saving feature.
Planbar allows you to work both model- and plan-oriented! Our exclusive Elementplan-Technology combines the clarity of a 3D model with the simplicity of a 2D plan to give you the best of both worlds. Technically, shop drawings are views of the model, therefore the model and shop drawings are 100% consistent at all times.
Planbar has the tools you need for any situation: Parametric input is the most efficient way to create’mass tailored’ staircases or columns. You can easily model unique structural precast pieces, giving you unrestricted versatility.
Planbar is built for efficiency: you can quickly import architectural models and MEP elements and use them for precast design with our assistance.
The BIM-Booster add-on module was created with huge projects in mind. Allow your planners to work on the same project in parallel to cut down on lead time. With the help of intelligent links and automated processes, you may increase efficiency while dealing with identical and similar elements.
Collaborate with coworkers and partners across systems with ease. Open standards (openBIM), cutting-edge interface formats like IFC4precast, and a direct link to Bimplus are all available with Planbar.
It is sufficient to make the necessary adjustments either in the model OR in the plan, thanks to Elementplan-Technology. Every second, Planbar guarantees that the model and all shop drawings are consistent.
In order to generate production data, including reinforcement, you must rely on absolute precision. Optionally, our work preparation solution Tim assists you with the Tim Quality-Manager in controlling all quality and safety issues relevant to you – via a mobile app if desired.
Create your own favorites for different projects or clients to save time. This ensures that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel every time and that you always reflect your clients’ specifications and wishes.
Anyone familiar with 3D CAD software will be able to navigate Planbar with ease. Planbar provides you with logical workflows, a clean user interface, and the Allplan-style user experience. Planbar can also be tailored to your specific working style, including workflows, quality rules, favorites and precast catalogs.
You can easily and quickly design any precast element with the Essentials Package, including slabs, walls, and structural precast parts like stairs. The Essentials Package combines the speed of plan-oriented work with the quality and clarity of 3D. The ability to transfer architectural components, 3D parts, and PythonParts ensures maximum flexibility. With several clever capabilities, you can create shop drawings at the touch of a button and save time.
The Slabs Package adds to the Essentials Package’s capability by allowing you to use automated slab detailing workflows. A simple 2D polygon can be used to create incline planes, ramps, and balconies. Assembly items such as lifting anchors and automatic base reinforcement are included in the design and detailing range. Based on your manufacturing capabilities, the Slabs Package divides the building into precast slabs for production.
The Walls Package includes all of the Essentials Package’s features as well as automated detailing workflows for all wall types. Select the wall and change the properties directly in the dialog box to modify elements and objects in the properties palette. With a single click, Planbar constructs the basic reinforcement and calculates fixtures such as lifting anchors for you. Planbar also divides the building into precast walls for production based on your manufacturing capabilities.
The Assets Package is the total of all packages and, as a result, our solution for efficient, intelligent, and automated detailing of all sorts of precast elements. Switch between the Essentials, Walls, and Slabs programs quickly and effortlessly. In one project, combine all precast pieces and navigate through the model to evaluate connections and reinforcing.
In medium and large design and construction offices, Workgroup-Manager provides substantial synergy. This extra feature allows you to manage your project data and users’ access rights from a single location. Thanks to the Workgroup-Manager, data access throughout the entire network is also transparent.
With MES-Connect, you can connect Planbar to your production systems directly. Save time and money by avoiding time-consuming manual steps and costly mix-ups or transmission errors. ULB (Unitechnik), PXML (Progress), BVBS, and IFC are all compatible formats.
ERP-Connect allows your commercial system to interface with Planbar and Tim directly. You may easily and without errors synchronize project-related data such as master data, delivery dates, and billing data. ADS-XML, PXML-Delegate, or KST are all compatible formats.
Our MWS technology provides cost-effective just-in-time reinforcement production. Using parameters in Planbar, you can quickly configure the capabilities and constraints of your mesh welding system. When Planbar creates the reinforcement, it takes these criteria into consideration automatically. The end result is error-free and efficient reinforcement production.
Planbar’s Sales-Manager enables the development of impressive 3D models and quantity computations without any CAD experience at all, making life easier not only for your designers, but also for your sales colleagues. You can significantly speed up and enhance your quoting processes with Sales-Manager.
Formbau generates 3D formwork models for complex concrete constructions automatically. The formwork is derived straight from Planbar by the tool, saving you time. Position plans, parts lists, substructures, exploded views, and data for the milling machine are all available at the touch of a button. At any stage, you can make changes to details like joints and miter cuts.
Precast manufacturers require solutions for all processes downstream of CAD planning, from stacking to billing, in addition to CAD software.
ALLPLAN provides you with realistic 3D work preparation, immediate access to all project information, and sophisticated quality assurance with Tim|work.
Are you looking for complete digitalization and, as a result, maximum productivity? Tim|flow automates and speeds up data transfers between ERP, CAD, MES, and BIM systems. You can access your data from anywhere with the aid of the mobile app. We provide a full service portfolio in addition to our software solutions.
