Basic Training


Discover the BIM solution for Structural Engineering Design at the Allplan courses. Seize the opportunity to become more efficient by learning to use the highly precise and reliable Allplan BIM planning software for structural engineering students and graduates.




All the courses in the Basic Training series are introductory and do not require any previous knowledge of a CAD or BIM software. In order to become a proficient user of Allplan, we strongly recommend that you use what you learn in a personal project, either on your own or by joining an Advanced Training course. The main purpose of the Engineering Basic course is to get participants acquainted with BIM workflow.


The basic training will cover the entire workflow from initial 2D drawings to 3D reinforcement and bill of material.

By the end of the training session, each student will be able to:


 Create and modify 2D elements

 Create and modify basic 3D elements

 Completely define all the basic architectural elements

 Create a building structure model

 Build a 3D model for a multistory building

 Generate associative views, sections and bills of quantities from the 3D model

 Reinforce the 3D structural elements (beams, columns, slabs, staircases, etc.)

 Create Formwork Drawings

 Create reinforcement drawings and bending schedules

 Import / export from and to various formats.
