Version 5 of the MPDS4 3D plant-engineering suite speeds up plant- and factory-layout projects with 3D editing, automatic routing, and enhanced data management, exchange and visualisation options.

The database-driven, multi-user 3D plant design software offers an integrated 2D/3D design environment for project-engineering efficiency.

Version 5 of MPDS4 sees enhanced usability, administration and design productivity.

The latest user interface introduces new colours, icons and optimised dialogues for clarity and efficiency.

’The front-end tool presents the most important plant project data, offering different administration, viewing, editing and reporting options based on a user’s role, including status reports for management,’ said product line manager Mark Simpson.

’Designers benefit from many new, intelligent 3D routing and editing tools that further speed up design changes and the P and ID module has also been significantly overhauled,’ he added.

Enhanced Dynamic 3D Editing MPDS4 now provides enhanced dynamic drag-and-drop editing of routed components, such as pipes, ducts and cables.

Version 5.0 makes it even easier to intelligently adjust the position of individual components, such as tanks or machinery, whereby connections with other components are automatically adjusted to the new position.

A new user-configurable routing tool for all the routing disciplines, such as piping, ducting and cabling, automatically calculates all possible paths, allowing users to choose the preferred route before automatically creating the component.

All affected components in a larger assembly are automatically re-routed.

On top of many functional enhancements, the P and ID module introduces new tools for filtering, grouping, selecting, placing and dynamically moving symbols.

Tight integration with MPDS4 add-on modules means that P and ID diagrams can form the basis of 3D designs, with automatic cross-checks against the 3D world.

Data Exchange and Visualisation MPDS4 version 5 includes many data-exchange enhancements.

New catalogue tools allow users to bulk import geometry, as well as specification data from external sources.

The import and export of 3D models in STEP/IGES and DXF format has also been enhanced.
