ProdLib with AutoCAD

Free AutoCAD content to boost your workflow.

ProdLib is a simple add-in for AutoCAD that helps architects and structural engineers to manage, configure and use AutoCAD blocks in an easy way.

The ProdLib platform consists of product libraries containing free BIM and CAD models, product information and other files. The user can browse the libraries and modify the available properties of each product. After finding and configuring the perfect solution, the user can add the product directly to the desired AutoCAD project.

ProdLib content can also be used in other CAD software.

The products in libraries are clearly organised into categories, so that browsing and finding solutions is as easy as possible. Each item has all the essential information, and most of them have adjustable parameters. After finding the right product and setting properties, click “insert” and the product will open in your AutoCAD project.

Content easily added to your AutoCAD project with just one click from ProdLib

When used with other CAD software, the inserting is done simply by dragging and dropping the files into the desired project.

content inserted from ProdLib to autocad

The content in ProdLib is created natively for the target software based on requirements of manufacturers. Most of the AutoCAD libraries are manufacturer-specific. However, there is also some generic content available, e.g. typical beams and columns of Steel, Concrete and Timber in ProdLib Structural library.

In addition to product libraries, there are helpful tools for designers in ProdLib: MyLib and BuildUp.

ProdLib My Library is a tool for creating your own library. Our program can organize the required CAD files into an easy-to-use library that can be used within AutoCAD software. More information about MyLib can be found here.

In turn, ProdLib BuildUp is a tool for creating and managing your own structure types of walls, floors and roofs. In BuildUp, there are actual and validated materials as well as pre-defined structures from several manufacturers. More information about BuildUp can be found here.

Content management

With ProdLib you can be sure that you have always the latest product data and content available. When connected to the internet, the background functionality checks regularly that the latest version of the content is in use. All the available updates are always clearly indicated to the user.

Once the required content has been downloaded, the libraries can be used even in the offline mode.

If the installation requires administrative rights, single users can still manage existing libraries or download new ones.
