Extensive range of functions for professional use
M4 DRAFTING comes with a modern user interface. Over the years CAD Schroer has been collating and analysing feedback from users. The result is a clearly structured modern user interface with a ribbon menu and a context-sensitive dashboard; providing the user with even faster access to the clearly structured functions. In designing the new user interface, special emphasis was given to making the software intuitive for new users. All dialogue boxes and functions were updated to create an even more easily accessible and user-friendly design.
M4 DRAFTING offers extensive features for easy navigation within a drawing. A wide range of zoom and pan features make it easier to move around and highlight individual areas in order to add more detail. Individual views can also be saved for later use. M4 DRAFTING’s extensive selection features make it simple to select the elements you need at any given time. The multiple selection feature allows you to quickly select elements of the same type and adapt or hide them.
M4 DRAFTING offers a wide range of dimensioning tools for dimensioning a drawing. Dimensioning can take place according to DIN, ISO, BSI, ANSI, JSI or isometrically. In addition, texts can be inserted and freely formatted, or attached to the drawing as notes. Drawings can be translated automatically, using a translation database and a translation tool. You can also create and import tables or derive them automatically from the drawing information, e.g. in the form of bills of materials or drilling charts.
M4 DRAFTING includes many features that can be used to automate repeated tasks or drawings. For instance, symbols and prims can be used to upload individual drawing components. In addition, individual elements can be saved as symbols for later use, or even stored in a catalog. Furthermore, M4 DRAFTING includes a parts library from which you can choose individual screws, nuts and other standard parts, adapt them to the drawing, and place them in the desired view.
In order to improve the quality of a construction drawing and make it easier to adapt, M4 DRAFTING offers a range of options for optimizing the drawing structure. Layers can be used to combine individual components of a drawing into global elements. Groups can be used to group individual components into one drawing. In addition, individual elements of a drawing can be supplemented with attributes, including analyzable information. All of the drawings are structured within a single worksheet set, where all of the sheets for a project can be saved.
