Why to choose 4M Verticals

The AutoCAD (*) functionality simply means that you already know how to work with the 4M Verticals. Interface appearance and functioning is absolutely familiar to the majority of the CAD users, as all our Verticals completely adopt the industry standard compatibility with AutoCAD commands, AutoCAD Menu, Scripts, Fonts etc.


Innovative BIM Technology

The intelligent BIM structure of the building information ensures an advanced modeling environment free of limitations, as well as impressive CAD performances and speeds (regarding particularly viewing and snapping operations). Additionally it provides a seamless integration between the CAD Component and the calculation Component wherever calculations are involved. All the 4M BIM Verticals are IFC import/export compatible.


DWG compatibility

DWG compatibility means that you keep an open communication with any other CAD user. Our Verticals’ native file format is .DWG, so when you open or save an existing DWG file there's no file conversion and no data loss. 4M is a member of the open design alliance (www.opendwg.com) which is committed to promoting open, industry-standard formats for the exchange of CAD data.

Outstanding Scientific Background

Reliability and validity on methodology and international Standards, are guaranteed by the rich 4M’s scientific activity within the academic world and the engineering associations. In addition, in most cases, the user has also the option to select among alternative techniques, standards and norms.


Unbelievable Affordability

Purchase cost is just 1/3 to 1/5 comparing to the competition. In addition, considering an easy training plus the 3 months free support, 4M solutions manage to reach a really surprising Return of investment (ROI).


Seamless Integration among  Verticals

In case that you are interested in working with more than one 4M Verticals, you will take profit of the added value, which is coming from the seamless integration among the 4M Verticals. Impressive communication and data exchange flows between all the verticals are due to the fact that the Building Model is unique regardless the specific Vertical. For example, the HVAC designer works directly on the idea model taken from the Architect, the structural engineer returns to the Architect the architectural model enhanced by the structural requirements (for a possible iterative optimization approach) and so on.

 

4M New BIM Generation

4M Verticals adopt a new Building Information Technology, which is not simply built on the top of their geometric data model, as is the usual case, but on a real BIM structure, embedding intelligent object entities: Building entities and building installation components are intelligent objects natively defined within the CAD engine, carrying the logical information plus smart algorithms. The advantages of this generation are absolutely visible, permitting the user to get outstanding modeling features in extremely high performances. In particular, we get:

 

  • CAD functions natively applied to objects, leading to a fast and effective Modeling Environment
  • Logical functions speeding up the modeling process.
  • Viewing and snapping operations in extra high speeds
  • Seamless integration between CAD objects and Calculations components
  • Synergistic integration between verticals

All those features are even more visible by comparing them to the existing competitors. So, just make the comparison yourself and see the difference.
