4M Software Solutions consist of powerful BIM Verticals, all designed according to a state-of-the-art building modeling technology, high-performance CAD engines seamlessly embedded and full compatibility as far as the CAD functionalities and file formats (DWG and IFC) are considered. You should compare 4M solutions with the top brands of their category in order to realise directly the simplicity on their philosophy, the easiness in learning and use, and above all the efficiency in obtaining reliable results for high quality case studies. As shown below, 4M Solutions meet the needs of the entire range of the Building Design Industry, including Professional CAD, Architectural Design, Structural Analysis & Design, Building Services Design (HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing, Gas) and many others.
FINE is the Building Services Design Suite, covering the mechanical, electrical and plumbing design needs of any building construction. FINE has a unique advantage the fact that “thinks”, “suggests” and performs drawings and calculations fully automatically, producing the complete project printout along with the final drawings. FINE Suite includes the following Verticals:
- FineHVAC: Heating-Ventilation-Air-Conditioning
- FineSANI: Water Supply and Sewerage Design
- FineELEC: Electrical Installations Design
- FineFIRE: Fire Fighting Design
- FineGAS: Gas Design
- FineLIFT: Elevator Design
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 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.
