Extensive catalogues and comprehensive quality control

In M4 PLANT, 3D pipework design is “spec driven” using project-specific specifications. The system is supplied with extensive piping component catalogues, to support the rapid design of entire pipe systems. Automated consistency and collision checking ensures a high quality, error-free design. The project’s cost effectiveness can be checked at any time by means of reports and parts lists that are automatically generated by the system.

P&ID integration, piping isometrics, and interfaces

As an end-to-end solution, M4 PLANT supports P&ID-based design. This means that P&IDs can be used as the basis for the subsequent 3D design stage. For creating piping isometric diagrams, M4 PLANT utilises M4 ISO, an easy to use, fully integrated program that automatically generates fully dimensioned piping isometric drawings at the press of a button, ready for pipe fabrication. Furthermore, the ROHR2™ interface enables the static and dynamic analysis of complex pipe systems. Additional 3D/2D interfaces enable the quick and easy exchange of data with suppliers and customers.

Industry-specific tools for your success

Adapt the M4 PLANT system to meet the individual requirements of your company. M4 PLANT’s extensive customizability allows you to automate your everyday design tasks to achieve optimum productivity and quality.
