Pipelining equipment and procedures: It majorly establishes fluidity in a pipelined diagram that indicates the relation between processes and equipment used in the facility.

Functionality of industrial equipment: It plays a vital role in portraying the function of all the instrumentation and gears underuse in the industrial facility. It allows the user to have a better understanding and control over these devices.

Mode of information transfer : The p&id software for diagrams is to define general manufacturing. It is essential as a mode of transmitting information as well as important in different stages of production.

Creating P&IDs is a breeze

Ready-to-use templates: EdrawMax has more than 500 ready-to-use templates. They instantly increase productivity and save time for customization.

Extensive symbol library: EdrawMax includes an extensive range of symbol libraries. They are compatible with most of the mechanical and industrial requirements needed in piping, instrumentation, and all the required processes.

Build custom symbol library: EdrawMax allows creating your own symbol library. To add the symbols to your diagram, you can drag them over from the library to the desired position on the board. This is a very professional move that allows easy diagram-making.

Collaborate and share with team on the fly

Import fron Visio: EdrawMax backs users by allowing them to import files. Since the software is a great alternative for MS Visio, it lets you work on existing VSDX and SVG files, which makes sharing easier on different platforms

Easy sharing: Use the export feature to bring existing files to your drawing board. Some supported formats include PDF, PNG, and JPG. By exporting these files to EdrawMax, you can save them to the cloud (or offline) and share them with others instantly.

Save and manage files: EdrawMax comes with a bunch of useful collaboration tools. Using the ‘Group Project’ feature allows you to organize your files in separate folders and allow different team members to work on them remotely. You can alter the sharing permissions to limit access to just your co-workers and group participants.


Present and analyze
with ease

Full screen: The option of the F5 button allows the user to make the switch between pages in the full-screen mode, without exporting files or leaving the software.

Slideshow maker: The auto-create option in EdrawMax helps create slide presentations easily. Users can select, highlight, and show all the slides in a few clicks.

Shape data: On top of providing thousands of different shapes, EdrawMax also allows you to tinker with the finer details and features on the icons to create a specific and tailored appearance. You can add customized touches to the symbols to help the reader understand your diagram better.

One of the best things about EdrawMax is that I can export my diagrams and share them easily with non-EdrawMax users. Diagrams can be exported to PNGs, meaning my colleagues didn’t have to download EdrawMax to view them. This wasn’t a problem, though, as many of them did end up downloading the software after seeing the wonderful things I was able to do with it!

By far, the biggest benefit of using EdrawMax is its usability. It is incredibly easy to use, and you can create high-quality diagrams in a very short amount of time. Linking elements within diagrams is incredibly easy (literally one click!). Be sure to take advantage of all the great templates that the software comes with!

EdrawMax’s versatility is by far and away from its greatest strength. It comes with symbols from a wide range of fields and disciplines. Using their templates to get started is extremely useful, but creating diagrams from scratch is equally easy - and incredibly fun, too! I’ve created P&ID, circuit diagrams, and a variety of other diagrams using EdrawMax.
