Cambridge, UK and Pittsford, NY – 17 November 2021: M4 ISO FX generates piping isometrics, parts lists and other important documentation in a matter of seconds, completely standalone from your CAD system. The process is fully automated which means manual effort is no longer required.
The importance of piping isometrics in pipework design
Piping isometric drawings are a very important document in pipework design. They accurately detail pipework in simplified isometric form. Together with the associated parts lists, the isometrics form the basis for the fabrication and documentation of pipework. The isometrics are often also used to support the operation of bending machines and other downstream manufacturing processes. The new M4 ISO FX piping isometric software offers the possibility to generate piping isometrics completely automatically from a 3D pipework model. The common PCF format is used as the data exchange format.
PCF, the common data exchange format for pipework
PCF is a common format supported by most professional 3D pipework design systems. The PCF formal enables pipework design data to be accurately exchanged between different systems. M4 ISO FX imports pipework design data from PCF files and uses it to automatically generate fully dimensioned piping isometric drawings. The layout of the generated isometrics is determined by highly-configurable style templates which can be adapted to meet specific company requirements.
Generating piping isometrics simply and quickly
M4 ISO FX is the easiest and fastest way to create piping isometric drawings. Isometrics, together with parts lists and other types of listing can be generated in the required style in seconds, at the push of a button. Piping isometrics are production-ready documents that can be used directly for pipework fabrication and documentation purposes without delay. M4 ISO FX is a standalone software package that is installed independently of other CAD systems. M4ISO FX fully automates the piping isometric generation process, making it a great asset for any company looking to maximise efficiency while minimising costs.
2D CAD functionality for further annotation
With M4 ISO FX, the generated piping isometrics can, if required, be further annotated with additional information thanks to the included 2D CAD functionality. For example, notes, tables or other items can be manually added to the generated isometrics. This functionality is also highly beneficial because it enables the editing of regular 2D CAD drawings as an added bonus. The integrated DWG/DXF interface also ensures a smooth exchange of 2D data with customers and suppliers.
