“Given its many strengths—including an extensive repertoire of CAD and building modeling capabilities with a large array of options for each tool, comprehensive 3D modeling tools that allow complex organic forms to be created, multi-disciplinary capabilities, integration with the wide set of other Nemetschek tools including Cinema 4D, strong support for IFC and other interoperability initiatives, and add-ons for building cost management/efficiency in some countries—it would be a great pity if Allplan did not emerge as a strong contender when BIM solutions are being evaluated for adoption by AEC firms worldwide”
