CAD Schroer Releases M4 P&ID FX v7.0 for Piping Schematics

CAMBRIDGE, UK and PITTSFORD, NY, USA, Jun 1, 2020 – CAD Schroer releases the new version 7.0 of its professional P&ID software – optimized for the quick and easy creation of P&IDs. With the new version of M4 P&ID FX, P&IDs can now be created and checked even faster. Many new customization options are also provided to meet customer requirements.

The next level of P&ID software

“With our M4 P&ID FX software, we offer companies the opportunity to elevate their P&ID designs to a professional level for a modest budget,” said Mark Simpson, Product Line Manager at CAD Schroer. “With version 7.0, we have as usual paid particular attention to meeting our customers’ needs and requirements, whilst making the software more user-friendly than ever before”.




The user – always at the forefront

M4 P&ID FX has become more personal. With the new version, many tools have been optimized for user-friendliness and made customization for users. The new version helps users save a lot of time on their daily tasks. In addition to favorites and simplified copying tools, users can now also customize attributes for their own user profile so that their preferred default values are used for a symbol. Favorites display their own default values, making it even easier for users to specify the required attributes. In this way, every user receives a personalized design experience.

Rapid reuse of existing designs

Version 7.0 of the M4 P&ID FX software offers new functionality enabling P&IDs to be created and used even quicker. For example, parts of an existing P&ID can be easily copied for reuse in a new P&ID. Copied symbols are automatically checked for consistency when they are inserted in the new P&ID and their individual symbol tags are adjusted accordingly. This makes it very quick and easy to reuse parts of existing designs.




Create a symbol legend with just one click

With version 7.0, a symbol legend can be quickly added to a P&ID. The symbol legend is automatically generated based on the symbols used in the P&ID. This saves a considerable amount of drafting time for every P&ID created. Accurate symbol legends are now only a click away.




And much more: 2D CAD functionality and a DXF/DWG interface

In addition to intelligent P&ID functionality, M4 P&ID FX offers an extensive range of 2D CAD drawing tools. These tools can also be used to create and edit CAD drawings. The DXF/DWG interface enables drawings to be easily exchanged with customers and suppliers.


M4 P&ID FX version 7.0 is now available for download. The new version is focused on increased productivity and makes the creation of P&IDs even easier and faster. Customers with an active maintenance contract can download the new version directly from the customer portal at no additional charge.
