Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to ...

  • use CAD programs and explain their logic
  • use CAD programs to construct exactly in 2D and explain and apply drawing objects, drawing structure, and layout
  • create plotable plot files
  • explain the structure and content of different plan types (submissiion plan, polishing plan, formwork and reinforcement plan) and to create such plans
  • construct such plan content so accurately that you can translate it into 3D programs (as required for BIM)

Subject of course

Introduction into two popular commercial CAD programs: Nemetschek Allplan and Autodesk AutoCAD in 2 blocks.

  • Draw and accurately construct 2D plan drawings as required in practice as the basis for BIM programs
  • Basic understanding of the various drawing objects and drawing and construction techniques when using CAD
  • Learning skills to create layouts considering layout rules, scale factor, linetypes, line weights, readability, etc. as well as output of a plotable plot file
  • Contents and components of the different building plan types (submission plan, polishing plan, formwork and reinforcement plan) are treated as they always represent the final result of CAD or BIM constructions

Teaching methods

Lectures, exercises during lectures, homework

Mode of examination


Additional information


  • For a positive completion of the entire course, a positive completion of the plan content test as well as the achievement of at least 120 points (out of 200 points) is required in the assessment in Allplan and AutoCAD.

  • There is compulsory attendance at the introductory presentation as well as the, plan content test and the further appointments!
    Missing the introductory presentation or the plan content test will lead to deregistration.
    If you are missing an appointment, you cannot attend the further course but you will be graded.

  • The first half of the term is about Nemetschek Allplan.
    Afterwards will follow the part about Autodesk AutoCAD

  • The seminar is a seminar with continuous performance control:
    All students who participate in the plan content test get a certificate.
    Who then does not participate in the groups, is rated negative.
Please consider the plagiarism guidelines of TU Wien when writing your seminar paper: Directive concerning the handling of plagiarism (PDF)



Examination modalities

Hand-ins and Final Exam

As with any seminar, therefore obligatory attendance

Participation in the plan content test leads to a grading!
