An overview of Allplan and LiveSync

ALLPLAN is a global provider of BIM design software for the AEC industry with architectural solutions for achieving precise design and construction drawings. Allplan 2022-1 includes a Technical Preview of a LiveSync interface, which is intended to elevate data transmission between Allplan and Lumion to new heights. Traditionally, design development takes time. It is a feedback and revision, test, and exploration procedure. By building a real-time connection between your Allplan model and Lumion’s rendering solution, you can considerably shorten this timescale and experience your designs more immersively with the inclusion of Lumion’s LiveSync capabilities.

This feature allows you to model in Allplan and render the outcome in Lumion at the same time, saving you time as you study your design and material choices and visualize different solutions in an easy-to-control environment. 

The following section provides an overview of four ways that the LiveSync speeds up Allplan design workflows and makes it simple to bring your projects to life.

Four ways to boost your design Allplan workflows with Lumion LiveSync

1. LiveSync helps visualize design choices immediately

With the LiveSync, you will be able to visualize your design choices in Lumion’s photorealistic world right away. Any action you take in your Allplan will be visualized in Lumion’s fully detailed, lifelike project editor.

When you change the height of the walls in your Allplan model, Lumion will immediately update. This allows you to see the impact of your choices surrounded by genuine trees and flora, strikingly accurate natural and artificial lighting, real-life settings, and other urban or rural background. This level of real-time interaction is also helpful when exploring material options. While assigning materials in your Allplan, you’ll see how your choices will look, right away, with an incredible level of detail.

Dimension. Scale. Geometry. No matter how you design or 3D in Allplan. This real-time compatibility tool supports your design workflows with a stunning level of beauty and detail.

2. LiveSync helps gain insight into the life of your design

Every building has a deep relationship with its surroundings, community, and history. The technical preview for LiveSync brings this tie to life instantly. By establishing a real-time rendering connection, you’re opening a window into the eventual reality of the project’s building. Lumion’s fully immersive editor allows you to view your design choices in stunningly accurate lighting and atmospheric circumstances, such as a bright and sunny day, a gorgeous sunset, or a comforting rainfall.

You will be able to virtually experience all of the texture and tactile properties of your building materials, as well as how light and shadow effect them. Using the library’s greatest range of furniture, decorations, people, cars, and other materials, you can reveal your personality and unique design style. LiveSync for Allplan plugin allows you to be creative at any level with any design ideas.

3. LiveSync fasters the speed allowing doing more with more

The Lumion LiveSync turns 3D modeling and rendering into a simultaneous, side-by-side experience. After adjusting the model in Allplan, you can instantly surround it with a richly detailed, biodiverse forest in less than a minute, using several landscape design tools and a vast library of animated nature items.

Because of Lumion’s lightning-fast rendering capabilities, you can immediately generate dozens of pictures and share them with your team after each design change. This enables more immersive collaboration and contributes to faster, more confident design decisions.

4. LiveSync allows you to involve your clients in the process

Because of LiveSync compatibility, you can now include clients in the design creation process like never before. When you incorporate their feedback in real-time, you may work in Allplan and instantly show the client the high-quality, stunningly detailed output in Lumion.

You can also involve your clients in the design by instantly producing a 360-degree panorama in Lumion and then viewing it with a VR headset like the Oculus Go or the Samsung Gear VR. If they want to see how larger ceilings would look, for example, simply alter the model using the LiveSync technical preview, render out a new 360 panorama, and let your client look around. The technical preview shortens the feedback loop, breaking the cycle of trial and revision. As a result, it allows you and your client to collaborate to establish a shared vision with the ease and simplicity of a friendly discussion.
