Software for 3D factory design and 2D layout

As a factory design software, M4 PLANT represents an innovative approach to 3D installation design and 2D layout of entire factories, across all design disciplines. The solution enables the design of entire buildings and production facilities, irrespective of their size. The factory design software combines space management and the visualisation capabilities of 3D factory design software with the effective 2D layout possibilities of a professional CAD solution. This makes it possible to design complete production plants with the software in a short space of time, directly in 3D or 2D.

Terrain, buildings and factory layouts

The M4 PLANT Factory Layout software allows extremely rapid creation of 3D terrain and building models from 2D layouts together with height information. The positioning of factory equipment can be performed either directly in 3D or by placing symbols in a 2D layout. The corresponding models are automatically loaded into the required place in the 3D environment. The 2D layout and 3D design are automatically synchronised to ensure consistency.

M4 FACTORY - Tolle Visualisierung der Daten in 3D

Extensive conveyor catalogues and auto-loading

M4 PLANT enables you to manually or automatically layout your conveyor systems. You can manually select and connect single components, or you can use a pre-defined path to auto-load equipment. The system automatically determines the required conveyors based on user-specified criteria, and then auto-loads them along the path. Accurate part lists, construction drawings, and consistency and interference checking are available as standard. Designers with the factory layout module can work interactively in a 2D or 3D environment, with automatic updates between the two.
