CAD Schroer launches professional standalone P&ID software with free trial download

M4 P&ID FX allows process engineers to create intelligent P&IDs to international standards with customisable symbol libraries

Cambridge, UK and Pittsford, NY – 19 March 2014: Engineering software provider CAD Schroer today announced the release of a standalone version of its powerful P&ID software for standards-driven creation of high quality piping and instrumentation designs, with a free 30-trial. 

Affordable High Quality P&IDs

Mark Simpson, Product Line Manager at CAD Schroer, developer of MCAD, plant and factory design solutions, explains, “We’ve launched this product in response to the needs of smaller engineering departments or individual consultants, who need to quickly create quality P&IDs in a flexible yet controlled, standards-driven manner.  M4 P&ID FX is a good value stand-alone system for those not requiring integration with 3D piping or large-scale industrial plant design software.”

M4 P&ID FX free trial:

Configurable P&ID Symbol Libraries

M4 P&ID FX includes symbol catalogs in support of the EN ISO, ANSI and ISA standards. Users can add or edit individual symbols, create new symbol catalogs, and configure catalogs for specific projects.

Dynamic P&ID Creation and Editing

Dynamic tools allow users to place symbols and texts, with automatic alignment. Connections are maintained when moving symbols or entire piping systems. There are tools for adding line cross overs and flow direction arrows; pipe branch, symbol and line bore texts; as well as vendor, responsibility and pipe specification breaks.

P&ID Consistency Checks with Automatic Sheet Verification

An integrated consistency checker provides design quality assurance, with a detailed overview of the components used, as well as their attributes. Mistakes or inconsistencies within the schematic are flagged up in a separate report, as well as highlighted on the diagram itself.

Full Reporting at any Design Stage

In contrast to 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 -and from multiple sheets- to monitor a project’s progress.

Complementary 2D Drafting Tools & DXF/DWG Interface

M4 P&ID FX provides an extensive set of 2D tools in support of 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 to request their free trial licence. The license is delivered with a link to the software download, tutorial videos, and detailed documentation,” Mark concludes.
