CAMBRIDGE, UK and PITTSFORD, NY, USA, Jan 6, 2021 – CAD Schroer is pleased to announce the release of M4 ISO Isometrics version 4.0. The M4 ISO isometrics software is specifically developed for use in plant design and construction. It is used to automatically generate unscaled piping isometrics from PTC Creo Piping models or PCF files.
Automatically generate piping isometrics from pipework designs
M4 ISO uses existing 3D pipework design data to automatically create fully-dimensioned piping isometric drawings, complete with parts lists, cut-length lists, bend tables and much more. The style and content of the isometric drawings are highly configurable, enabling M4 ISO to deliver fabrication-ready documentation, even for long and complex pipe runs.
Generate piping isometrics directly from Creo Piping
M4 ISO is available for use directly with PTC Creo Piping. The software is fully integrated into the Creo Piping user interface to provide a very simple and intuitive user experience. Piping isometrics are generated for selected Creo pipe assemblies at the push of a button. The user can easily specify the desired isometric style and other settings to suit their specific requirements. Of course, M4 ISO can also be used as an integrated solution within a PTC Windchill product life-cycle.
Convert PCF files into piping isometrics with M4 ISO
A separate M4 ISO package is available for processing pipework data from third-party plant and piping design systems. This package offers the fully-automated conversion of PCF files into piping isometrics. PCF is a commonly-used data exchange format in which pipework is described in great detail. M4 ISO can also be integrated with existing processes so that the generation of piping isometrics via the PCF format becomes completely automated.
Even more flexibility for individual adjustments
Version 4.0 of M4 ISO offers even more flexibility in the layout of isometrics. For example, the distances between individual lines of text in parts lists and note blocks can be pre-defined to ensure optimal legibility. Similarly, additional options have been provided to control the grouping and sorting of parts lists. This enables even closer configuration of the software to meet company-specific requirements.
M4 ISO Version 4.0 is available now and includes an impressive range of new features. To purchase or to download a trial version, click here.
