If you are having difficulties using any part of the detail library we are here to help!
Firstly, we have put together some of the most frequently asked questions we have received from our members.
Please check them out and see if your question is covered.
Open File Explorer and find the zipped folder.
To unzip the entire folder, right-click to select Extract All, and then follow the instructions.

Locate the Zip archive file in the Finder of the Mac.
Double-click the .zip archive file to begin extracting the zip archive *
When finished, the unzipped contents will appear in the same folder as the original .zip archive.
CAD Printing and Plotstyle
If you would like to print your CAD drawings so that they are in the same style as the drawings you see on the Detail Library you can download the .ctb plotstyle from the Resources section of the library.
One you have downloaded the plotstyle you can load it into your CAD. Open a CAD drawing and type PLOTSTYLE and press enter. Click on the drop down menu and select import. Then navigate to where you have saved the Detail Library plotstyle and select.
When you go to print, type PLOT and select the new .ctb plotstyle from the drop down list next to Plot Style.
Your drawings should now be printed in the same style as Detail Library.

We have put together a guidance document that explains the process of bringing in Detail Library details to an existing Revit project document. You can download the guide here.
