With ‘M4 ISO Isometrics for PTC Creo® Piping’, CAD Schroer is unveiling a new solution for the creation of pipeline isometrics, which is integrated into Creo.
M4 ISO is a software programme that has been developed specially for pipework fabrication. It facilitates the automatic creation of unscaled piping isometric drawings from Creo 3D geometric data. M4 ISO is now available as a solution that is fully integrated into PTC Creo Piping.
Unscaled Piping Isometrics
‘M4 ISO Isometrics for PTC Creo® Piping’ uses pipeline data from Creo to automatically create unscaled piping isometric drawings, including dimensions, notes and parts lists. “The unscaled approach is of paramount importance”, says Mark Simpson, Product Line Manager at CAD Schroer, “because it enables us to depict pipe spools of all sizes, lengths and complexities on a single sheet. This cannot be achieved with a normal drawing or 3D model. They are the Lingua franca of the pipe design and manufacturing industries.”
Piping Isometric Software for Creo Piping Users
“The advantage of our solution is that the Creo Piping user can, at the touch of a button, immediately obtain complete and detailed piping isometric drawings for either all, or a selection, of the pipelines”, explains Mark Simpson. “Although one does not see a lot of M4 ISO, it delivers excellent results. All of the drawings, bills of materials, tube cutting lists etc. are made available in the blink of an eye, and they can then be passed on to the production domain.”
Isometric Software Functionality
M4 ISO provides a totally automated solution for Creo user. Once the options are selected, the drawings are fully created with one click. Thanks to the open format, the software is highly flexible, which in turn ensures that it can quickly be adapted to company-specific or project-specific requirements. The style of the piping isometric drawings produced can be modified, as can the drawing templates supplied with M4 ISO. Furthermore, the software creates fully dimensioned, unscaled drawing of pipe spools, complete with parts lists, ready for fabrication use. ‘M4 ISO Isometrics for PTC Creo Piping’ is available now.
