Custom 3D Parametric Catalog Component Design
The 3D Component Designer in M4 PLANT is an add-on module for creating and animating custom parametric 3D catalog components. It provides an easy to use dialog, which allows you to create and animate a simplified but very realistic 3D representation of components, machines or equipment. Equipment models (such as project-specific machinery) are designed in the same way as components. The end user, however, assigns the required dimensions at the time of placing the equipment, rather than choosing from a database table (which is the typical method for selecting in-line catalog components).
