Piping Isometric Drawings from 3D Pipework Designs

M4 ISO is a flexible solution for the completely automated generation of piping isometrics. The flexible architecture of the software allows it to be either integrated into other software packages or used alongside them. As an integrated module, M4 ISO extracts data directly from the 3D pipework, such as with M4 PLANT or Creo Piping. When used alongside a software package, a PCF file is imported by M4ISO to generate the piping isometrics and associated parts lists.

We support you

Our team supports you as a partner and offers you a comprehensive service with a hotline for your daily questions.

The fastest way to create piping isometrics

It is not without reason that piping isometrics (ISOs) are the most important design drawing used in pipework construction today. Piping ISOs are an integral part of the multi-stage design process. They accurately and clearly document the pipework design and contain all the information necessary for fabrication. Due to their unscaled nature, very long and complex pipe runs can be depicted using a single piping ISO drawing. They also permit an unobstructed view of all piping components and ensure that even the smallest components can be clearly seen, even on very long pipe runs. Individual piping components are represented by familiar, standardized isometric symbols. This ensures that piping ISOs are universally recognised and understood by pipework fabricators throughout industry, which in turn leads to higher quality and fewer manufacturing errors.

Accurate parts lists

M4 ISO uses 3D pipework data to automatically create unscaled piping ISOs together with parts lists and other associated documents. The documents are produced in seconds, ready for production use, and styled to suit company drawing standards. The automated production of piping ISOs offers tremendous advantages over manually drawn 2D or isometric drawings, which in comparison are time-consuming to produce, highly prone to human error, and therefore inferior and much more expensive. With M4 ISO, project costs are always under control, even if the design undergoes numerous revisions before manufacture.

Pipework designs documented in line with production requirements

Through the use of industry-standard piping symbols and unscaled isometric representation, M4 ISO delivers production-ready piping ISOs at the push of a button. Piping ISOs are universally understood by pipework fabricators and clearly specify how individual pipe spools are to be manufactured and assembled. All piping components and pipes are automatically fully dimensioned and annotated. Detailed parts and cutting lists specify precisely the quantity and type of materials required. Machine-ready pipe bending tables also accelerate the fabrication process. Even welding lists are generated automatically to support downstream process at the construction site and beyond.

  • PCF = Piping Component File.
  • A PCF file is generated by piping design systems from 3D pipework models.
  • The PCF file fully describes the 3D pipework and is a standard file format.
  • M4 ISO generates a fully dimensioned piping isometric drawing from the PCF file, together with a parts list.
