    If only this was available the 5 times I moved my shop in the 80s and 90s. Hopefully it will help you out Dan.

    Jason, I've already done 5 floor plans using this. We're considering additional equipment and this makes it so damn easy. I also used it to see if I might find a better lay out for our existing equipment. I'm lovin' it.

    You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

    Great!

    If anyone wants me to "soil" a Mac by installing the software (a Windows program), I'll run through the installation process for them to verify that it works, let me know! [-o<

    You must be a registered member of the M&R Companies Forums to download this program. Registration is free, but requires a valid email address.

    Once you are registered you can download the Shop Floor-Layout Program in either of two versions, .zip (compressed) or .exe (executable installer file).

    Click here to register.


    M&R Shop-Floor-Layout Program HOW TO



    • Draw your production floor outline using the “Wall” tool. Set the appropriate wall thickness.

    • Use the “Place Prefab” tool to properly position support pillars.

    • Import icons of your M&R equipment and place the machine(s) on the shop layout.

    • Move the machinery icons around using the “Select” tool. Try different layouts until you’ve identified the best possible configuration for production flow.

    • Use the “Dimension” tools to measure the distances between equipment, or from equipment to pillars and walls.

    • Use the “Square/Rectangle” and “Circle” tools to draw other types of equipment and add them to the drawing.

    • Use the “Rotate” tool to reorient equipment.

    • Use the “Text” tool to identify items or enter comments.

    • NOTE: M&R equipment drawings automatically include names and pertinent technical information.

    • The adjustable “Grid” makes precise movement of elements simple and accurate.

    • The “Zoom” tool provides close-up viewing for fine adjustments. (The mouse “scroll wheel” can also control the Zoom function)

    • The “Auto-fit” tool adjusts the drawing to display full-screen

    Hi George, welcome aboard! Feel free to download either file near the bottom of the first post on this page. One file is zipped and the other is an executable, take your pick. PM or call me if you need any help.

    Double confirmation here. Running Ubuntu 9.04 and Wine 1.01

    Installs and runs perfect.

    The simple interface is very familiar....what CAD app is this based on if I might ask?

    It may look familiar, but M&R designed/invented "Floor Layout" to help customers be more productive. It's not based on any pre-existing CAD sotware.

    Let me know if you have any questions on its operation.

    Thanks!
