M3 Framework is the software platform for creating BIM applications for land surveying, infrastructure design and construction.

M3 Framework is a powerful, flexible and stable platform on which to build products and services.

User Interface

Beautiful and functional

User Interface: Beautiful and functional
The ergonomic and refined Interface is focused on the user’s experience. The result is a simple and effective Interface with a wider graphic area and the access to features is natural and more intuitive.

Graphic engine

Extraordinarily fast

Graphic engine: Extraordinarily fast
A special flexible and very high-performance 3D graphic engine.
Based on this graphic engine, the CAD is extremely fast and convenient, even with huge quantities of vector data and images.

Database

A stable base for your projects

Database: A stable base for your projects
M3 Framework includes a powerful, stable and high-performance database, with an excellent level of data compression, in order to minimize the used space.
The security data is ensured by the backup function and SmartSave, which avoid the loss of information in case of unexpected stop of the software (for example a blackout).

Memory manager

Everything you need without waste

Memory manager: Everything you need without waste
M3 Framework can use all the available memory on the system (2GB for Windows 32bit and 64GB for Windows 64bit).
It has an optimized management, which uses just the necessary memory and free memory as soon as possible. The memory management is automatic and smart, in order to make the most of the resources of the computer.

Data exchange

Fast and accurate data access

The M3 Framework platform through the data exchange features can directly read and write CAD data (DXG and DXF) and data of other formats such as GIS, TXT without any dependence on other software.
Data exchange recognizes the entities present in various files and transforms them into its internal entities by reproducing their information.

International

Work without boundaries

International: Work without boundaries
M3 Framework is international by nature and manages different languages and several units of measure.
The unicode character management allows the use of all currently used writing systems including Japanese, Chinese, Hindi, Arabic, etc..
You can choose different languages among interface, project data and printouts. So you can work in your favourite language and deliver your work in the language that your client wants.

Multi Multi Multi

Multiply your workspace

Multi Multi Multi: Multiply your workspace
Expand the space in which you can manage your projects.
Split your work between multiple windows, pages, or monitors.
All data and views are synchronized in real time.
Begin a drawing in one window and continue it in another on a separate monitor.
Discover a new dimension for working.

Parametric engine

Automate the impossible

M3 Framework allows you to parameterize complex calculation flows in order to make the management of complex processing operations simple and intuitive.

Dynamic engine

The results in real time

M3 Framework is equipped with a dynamic processing engine, which combined with the parametric engine allows you to obtain complex results in real time and facilitate all design and modeling activities.

Stereoscopic engine

Improve accuracy with stereoscopic viewing

Easy handle one or more point clouds of any size.
Stereoscopy visualization is integrated into the M3 Framework CAD system.
Hardware interfaces are managed such as: NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards, NVIDIA 3D Vision Steroscopic Glasses, or 3DpluraView stereoscopic stations.

Point clouds

Upload and manage point clouds in a very simple way

Easy handle one or more point clouds of any size.
Loading and display are really fast, drawing and extraction functions occur in real time.
A special tool “SierraSoft Mass Data Convertes” allows to convert LAS, XYZ, PTS and XCF files so that you can manage them easily.

Help

Learning by doing

Help: Learning by doing
Learning tools are included in the M3 Framework.
The Smarthelp guides the user while working with the software by providing context-sensitive information.
The user guide of the product is integrated in the Interface through retractable control panels and always available.

BIM Software Platform

Modeling, sharing, checking

M3 Framework is a powerful software platform that allows you to integrate land surveying work, infrastructure design and construction within the processes, guidelines and tools used for BIM.
The BIM sharing and the BIM modeling take place through the BIM Exchange and BIM Modeling functionalities, which are part of the M3 Framework software platform.
SierraSoft M3 Framework complies with UNI 11337.
