Schroer Group has announced the launch of version 4.0 of its Medusa4 design automation suite, including the MPDS4 Plant Design and Factory Layout system.

Many of the tools and enhancements introduced in this version are said to focus on client collaboration, data integration, and quicker design editing and visualisation.

The new functionality supports the entire design process from tender design to project delivery, with special emphasis on efficient and visually impressive pre-sales configuration, the company said.

Schroer said Medusa4 3D and MPDS4 Plant Design customers will be interested in the MPDS4 Review tool.

MPDS4 now generates compact plant models, which can be e-mailed to partners or clients, who then conduct collaborative reviews or walkthroughs on any machine with the tool installed.

MPDS4 Review also displays Medusa4 3D files for interactive design reviews.

Interoperability with third-party systems and data has also been enhanced.

The release sees enhancements in terms of speed, quality and file size delivered by the Step, IGES and 3D DXF interfaces; a Teamcenter interface; and enhanced open database connectivity for Medusa4 and MPDS4 for integration into diverse data-management architectures.

Support for URLs and searchable text strings in drawings, and the PDFs generated from them, further aids collaboration and data integration.

The MPDS4 Plant Design product suite sees the introduction of intelligent architectural components in the MPDS4 Factory Layout product, and multi-replace and automatic pipe fall tools in the MPDS4 Piping Design application.

On the 2D side, CAD Schroer’s design productivity tools, including Parametrics, Smart Edit, Smart Drafting, and dimensioning have been further enhanced.
