Starter Package for Digital Factory Layout

Starter Package for
Digital Factory Layout

Factory layout service + software in one package

In today’s modern factories, production lines are designed to optimise both material flow and the space available. Although the calculations to optimise the design are carefully performed in advance, the actual factory layout is often produced in 2D. For many designers, working in 3D is still a challenge because the factory building and individual machines are often not available as 3D models. In addition, there are usually competing demands for their time on other project work, leaving no time for additional 3D modelling. This is precisely where CAD Schroer’s factory modelling service can help, giving your project the momentum it needs.

A quick start for your 3D factory layout project

Your quick start consists of our factory modelling service together with our MPDS4 factory layout software. We provide you with the 3D models you need, enabling you to focus on laying out your factory. We can provide you with 3D models of individual machines, or complete production lines, or even your entire factory. We prepare the models using your existing 2D drawings, and also by importing existing 3D machinery models from your suppliers where available. If necessary, we can also generate new machinery models where no up-to -date 3D data exists. As a result, you can quickly create your 3D factory layout and then present it to your customer in virtual reality.

Optimised 2D/3D factory layout

With a joint project you receive an intelligent 3D layout of your factory as well as software that can be used productively, dynamically and flexibly for design, visualization and cost calculation. With MPDS4, you can work interactively in both 2D and 3D. For example, you can choose to prepare the initial layout in 2D and then continue with detailed design in 3D. MPDS4’s versatile 2D/3D interfaces also support integration into existing systems for end-to-end data consistency. Tools for 3D walk-throughs and for visualization in virtual reality help you to convincingly present your designs to management or your customers.

Overview of our factory modelling services

Our services are tailored to suit each project. Depending on your project, you can make use of the individual services as and when needed:

  • Importing and processing factory building models
  • Importing, simplifying and reworking 3D machinery models
  • 3D modelling of machinery from 2D drawings or image files
  • Creation of a 3D factory layout based on existing 2D plans
  • Generation of 2D construction drawings from the 3D layout

Targeted Training

After the initial project is complete, you need to be able to update your factory model to accommodate any new requirements. We can offer you targeted training in addition to our software and services. The course topics are tailored to meet your specific needs, ensuring you quickly learn how to adapt and extend your design when necessary. You will also learn how to generate various documents, drawings and parts lists from your factory model.
