Software Requirements

The details are saved in the following file versions:

 

AutoCAD dwg 2010

 

SketchUp version 2015

 

All core Revit drawings are in version 2019. All new Revit drawings published from Jan 2022 will be in version 2020.

 

Due to the nature of Revit being a subscription service, it is likely new Revit details published to the library will be in more recent versions of Revit. We will always try our best to keep to an older version to ensure our members are able to open the files.

 

Our details are drawn in AutoCAD, Revit and SketchUp. We cannot guarantee compatibility with any other software. While it may be possible to import the files into other softwares, we cannot provide guidance or support in doing so. Purchasing our details for use in any other software than AutoCAD, Revit and SketchUp is at your own risk, and if you find the files are incompatible, we will not be able to provide a refund.
