Question:

How can I permanently change the path settings presented for selection in specific tools (save, import)?



Answer:

When you save, import and export elements or files, Allplan automatically proposes a specific folder where the data is saved or taken from.
You can specify which Allplan file type is saved in which folder. These folders are automatically presented in the "Save" dialog box of the relevant file type. However, you can change them at any time.

To set this proposed folder on an individual basis, do the following:
Select the Tools menu ->Options... -> Desktop environment(Allplan 2009 and earlier: Tools -> Options... -> Global Options-> "Settings"tab).

You can click thePAah setting sbutton to the right of Folders for savingto define defaults. You can choose Project, Private, Custom or Last for the path setting:

  • Project: the file type is saved in the current project (not available for NDW and NPL files).
  • Private: the file type is saved in the user's private project.
  • Custom: you can specify any folder for the file type. To select the folder, click the path displayed in the Folder column and enter a new path or click ... in the Browse column and select the path in a dialog box.
  • Last: the file type is saved in the path you selected last.

Task:

You would like to export your Allplan 3D animation model and present it to somebody who does not work with Allplan.



Preparation:

Install a plug-in for Internet Explorer on the computer where you want to view the 3D data. Using this plug-in, you can open VRML files.

Plug-ins of this kind can be found on the Internet. Visit the website of Parallelgraphics, for example.
This plug-in is available for the following browsers:
Internet Explorer 6.0, Netscape Browser 8.0, Mozilla Firefox 1.5, Opera 8.5 or later versions.

http://www.cortona3d.com/Products/Cortona-3D-Viewer.aspx



Solution:

Open an animation window in Allplan.
Select File->Export ->Export to Cinema 4D/VRML/3DS/U3Dand save the data under any name in Windows Explorer.
It is advisable to save the file in an empty folder as the textures used in Allplan are copied together with the VRM fileto this folder.
You can then view the VRML file in Internet Explorer. All you need to do is double-click it. The functions provided for navigating and zooming are similar to those you can use in Allplan's animation window.



Note:

The Export 3D PDFtool is provided on the animation window's shortcut menu in Allplan 2008 and later versions. You can use Adobe Reader Version 2008 and later to view PDF files created in this manner.

Question:

How can I temporarily transfer the NemSLock license of a registered computer to a different computer?
How can I interchange the NemSLock licenses of two registered computers?



Answer:

You can use Nemetschek's Softlock License Manager to transfer the license temporarily (up to 30 days) to a different computer. Of course, you can return the license to the original computer before this time limit expires.

Open the License Manager by selecting the Services application -> Utilities -> License -> License Manager (NemSLock).
Select Export/import - License transfer

You can choose between a transfer that is "Directly on the network" and one that is "Indirectly by transfer file". The direct transfer requires that the source computer and the destination computer are on the same network. As opposed to the indirect transfer, you can also exchange licenses when you opt for the direct transfer.


Direct license transfer
First, set the destination computer to reception mode by selecting Directly on the network -> (Re-)Import license-> Selection.
Now you can transfer the license form the source computer to the destination computer using Directly on the network -> Export license -> Transfer.
Detailed information on this topic is provided in the Help (press F1).

Direct license exchange
You can use this option to exchange the licenses of two computers temporarily. This is very useful if the licenses of these two computers contain different program configurations.
Specify which computer is to be the master and which computer is to serve as the slave.
At the computer that is to serve as the slave, select Directly on the network -> Exchange licenses -> Slave and set it to Reception.
At the computer that is to serve as the master, click Directly on the network-> Exchange licenses -> Master.
Detailed information on this topic is provided in the Help (press F1).

Offline license transfer
You can also transfer the license to a computer that is not on the network.
To do this, select Indirectly by transfer file.
This requires that you create a computer-specific Computer IDof the destination computer. You only need to do this once. The next step is to export the license file for the specific computer ID on the source computer. You can use an USB stick to transfer the exported license to the other computer. You can also send it by email. Finally, install the license on the destination computer.
Detailed information on this topic is provided in the Help (press F1).



Notes:

  • If you have a new computer where you want to use the license permanently, use the Relocate licenses -> Transfer licenses permanently to a computertool .
    In this case, the license is returned to Nemetschek and you receive a registered license for the new computer. Follow this link for detailed instructions: https://connect.allplan.com/de/faqid/0003f5ca.html

Question:

How can I use Allplan to create PDF documents (Portable Document Format) that can be opened and viewed using PDF viewers such as the free Acrobat Reader?



Answer:

You can export PDF files directly from Allplan.
In addition to the design, bitmap areas and text, the direct export tool transfers layers, OLE objects, transparency and gradients.
Of course, you can also use external programs such as Adobe PDF and FreePDF to create PDF files. However, these programs do not provide all the options mentioned above. For example, transparency is not transferred.

Allplan provides the following options for exporting PDF data:

1. using the layout editor:
Create -> Plot Layout -> Export PDF Data

2. using the print preview:
Click the Export PDF Data icon in the toolbar at the top

3. exporting 3D PDF files from the animation window:
You can create a PDF file from the animation window. This file contains the 3D model displayed in the animation window.
This option is not described any further in this FAQ.


General settings:

When exporting PDF data, you specify the file name in a dialog box, where you can also make basic settings for the PDF file:

  • Resolution (in dpi)
  • Document size (paper size (with margin) or printable area (without margin))
  • Entire layout content
  • Archiving format PDF/A 1a
  • Export layers
  • Embed TrueType fonts
  • ...
  • Add to file (first select an existing PDF file in this dialog box and then select this option -> the PDF file is attached as a new page to the existing file)
  • Grayscale (version 2011 and later)
  • Open file with associated application (should be selected. After you have created it, the PDF file automatically opens in this application so that you can check it.)



Note on the page format (new in Allplan 2011):

In Allplan 2011 and later versions, you set up a page in Allplan. The page size should be used as the size for the PDF file.
You need to exactly define the size you require for the page.

To use the page size for exporting the PDF file, select the following options:

  • Select 'Paper size (with margin)'.
  • Clear the 'Entire layout content' check box, if necessary.



Notes on 1. settings in the Plot Layout module:

You can make advanced settings in the "Plot Layouts" dialog box.
The following settings are used for exporting PDF data:

  • Plot elements / options (Selection tab)
  • Paper format and orientation (Output tab); see the above notes on the page format.
  • Resizing: Resizing factor, resize pen thickness and rotation by 90° (Settings tab)
  • Pen and color assignments... (Settings tab)
    -> Line thickness for monochrome output and line colors for color output
    -> Line display in color, black or using shades of gray (can only be changed when you select a color printer beforehand)
    -> Gamma correction
  • No pen optimization/ Use one pen only (number:)
  • Plot profile (Settings tab)




Notes on 2. settings in the print preview:

The PDF file is exported as it is currently displayed on screen.
You can make the settings that are used for the "Print" tool directly in the print preview (Display tab in the Print Preview Options).



Notes:

To export PDF data in color, you need to install a printer driver that supports color and select this driver in the layout before you start exporting the PDF data.
It is advisable to install a printer driver for a large-format color plotter such as an HP DesignJet even if your office is not equipped with a large-format printer/plotter.
[Install as a local printer/ without plug & play, port: FILE, do not share the printer, do not print a test page.]
