Question:

How can I output a test plot with different data types used in Allplan?



Solution:

Allplan comes with drawing files containing test data that can be used for this purpose.

If necessary, create a new project and copy the drawing files with the test data to this new project.

Open ProjectPilot: Allplan -> File -> ProjectPilot - Admin.

Set the external path to the '..\New\Testplot' folder, which is a subfolder of the local Allplan program folder.
Click 'External path' with the right mouse button and, on the shortcut menu, choose 'Select external path'.
Select the '..\New\Testplot' folder, which is a subfolder of the local Allplan program folder: c:\Programs\Nemetschek\Allplan\New\Testplot, for example.

The following layouts and drawing files are available:

  • Layout 1 - Test Plot Allplan Testbild / Allplan Test Layout
  • Layout 2 - Test Plot Muster & Schaffur / Patterns & Hatching
  • Layout 3 - Test Plot Allplan Testbild / Allplan Test Layout
  • Drawing file 25 - Füllflächen + Stifte / Fills + Pens
  • Drawing file 26 - Muster / Patterns (Version 2006 and later)
  • Drawing file 27 - Schraffuren / Hatching (Version 2006 and later)
  • Drawing file 100 - Allplan Test Drawing File (Version 2008 and later)


Copy these layouts and drawing files to the new project.
Select the relevant drawing files with the right mouse button and choose 'Copy to ...' on the shortcut menu.
Select the new project.

If necessary, create a layout, place the drawing files in this layout, specify an output device and and print the layout.

Note:

Make the following settings to ensure that the data is output correctly:

  • Select "white" for the background color.
  • Turn off "Color stands for pen" in "Show/Hide".
  • Turn off "Surface elements in background of each document" on the "Selection" tab of "Plot Layouts".
  • Use Windows drivers for printing.
  • For HP plotters, select the "Avoid out of memory condition" or "Output as a bitmap" option in the plotter properties.
  • For optimum color output with sRGB values, apply the settings described in the FAQ entitled Color adjustment - Windows drivers and Nemetschek vector drivers.

Notes:

Colors in printouts can vary depending on several factors such as

  • Output device used
  • Paper used
  • Ink used
  • Driver type used (Windows or Nemetschek drivers)

In particular, colors can differ regarding

  • Color display
  • Brightness


Colors in printouts can even vary if you use the same output device but different Windows drivers.
On-screen display can be influenced by various factors such as different settings for contrast and color temperature.

As the possible settings are so widespread, you can see that it is essential to print out test data in advance.

Question:

How can I move NemSLock License Server to a new server?



Answer:

If you want to run NemSLock 2006 Server on a different or new server, you first need to render the license ineffective. For this, you still require the old server. After this, you need to contact Nemetschek Allplan Systems GmbH in order to activate the license for the new server.

As soon as you return the license, the status of the existing license is set to trial for 48 hours; then it will expire.

Note:Transfer the license to the new server while the old server is still available.

Do the following:

  • At the new server:install NemSLock 2006 Server with the temporary license files provided with the program.
  • At the clients:Exit Allplan on all workstations.
  • At the old server:return the license(s). Open NemSLock 2006 Server Console, click "Stop server", switch to "Modules" and click "Transfer license permanently". Then select "Next" and "Create". Click the "Send" button to send the .hwchs file you just created to "register@nemetschek.de" (provided an email program is installed and configured on this server). Otherwise, click "Browse" to open the folder with the .hwchs file in Windows Explorer. Now you can use any computer to send this file to the address mentioned above.
    Finally, click "Start server". The existing licenses are valid for two more days.
  • At the clients:for the time being the clients can continue to work with the old license server.
  • At the new server:After a few minutes, our server will send you an email confirming that the licenses have been returned. Now you can generate registration requests for all licenses. Next, install the licenses.
  • At the clients:Now you can switch the clients one after the other to the new server. To do this, open the License Manager by clicking Start -> (All) Programs -> Nemetschek -> Nemetschek Softlock 2006 -> License Manager.




Tip:

To transfer the existing users to the new server, back up the Users.mcf file, which you can find in the program folder of NemSLock 2006 Server, and copy this file to the new server after the installation. Prior to copying the file, stop the "NemSLock Server 2006" Windows service, copy the file to the program folder and start this service again.

I want to update the operating system of my computer. As far as I know, I have to return the license. How should I proceed?


Answer:

    The program creates and saves the COMPUTERNAME.hrdwchgfile. Then Windows Explorerstarts and the folder with the hardware change file opens. You can now use all the options provided by Windows Explorer: for example, you can attach the file to an email, copy it to a computer having Internet access and so on. Email this file to register@nemetschek.de.


Note:
After you have created this file, the Allplan license of your old computer will still be valid for two more days.
As soon as we have removed the registration, we will send you a confirmation by email.


You can now switch to the new operating system.
After having done this, you need to register the license for the new system.

  • To register the license, select
    Start -> (All) Programs -> Nemetschek -> Nemetschek SoftLock 2006 -> License Manager
    (Services application -> Utilities -> License -> License Manager (NemSLock)).
  • Select the license entry for your seat and click "Request license". Follow the instructions
    displayed on screen.
  • Create a new registration request (register.txt) and email this file to register@nemetschek.de.



You will promptly receive the final license.
Finally, install this license file to complete the switch.
