CAD Schroer Releases M4 P&ID FX v6.2

CAMBRIDGE, UK and PITTSFORD, NY, Aug 31, 2017 – The new version of M4 P&ID FX enables process engineers to create intelligent P&IDs to international standards using customizable symbol libraries, and to easily share them easily with clients and colleagues.

Affordable High Quality P&IDs

Mark Simpson, product line manager at CAD Schroer, developer of MCAD, plant and factory design solutions, explains, “We launched M4 P&ID FX in response to the needs of smaller engineering departments and individual consultants, who need to quickly create quality P&IDs in a flexible yet controlled, standards-driven manner. M4 P&ID FX is an excellent value stand-alone system for this type of application.”

New Version Targets Productivity

The new version is focussed on increased productivity, and makes the creation of P&IDs even easier and faster. This was achieved through the optimization of frequently-used tools and the addition of many performance-related enhancements to the software. Particular emphasis was placed on feedback from CAD Schroer’s customers, which is reflected in the new functionality.

Configurable P&ID Symbol Catalogs

M4 P&ID FX is supplied with extensive P&ID symbol catalogs which support the EN ISO, ANSI and ISA standards. Users can also add and edit individual symbols, create new custom symbol catalogs, and configure catalogs for specific projects.

Full Reporting at any Design Stage

Unlike other P&ID systems, configurable P&ID parts lists, line lists and from/to lists can be generated at any stage of the design process – including from multi-sheet designs – to monitor a project’s progress.

Complementary 2D Drafting Tools & DXF/DWG Interface

In addition to a wide range of specialized P&ID layout tools, M4 P&ID FX also provides an extensive collection of 2D drafting tools to facilitate P&ID symbol creation, and a configurable DXF/DWG interface for easy data exchange with customers and suppliers.

“We invite users to watch our M4 P&ID FX software demo video, and download a free trial. The software download is delivered with tutorial videos, and detailed documentation,” Mark concludes.
