Are you an architect, designer or engineer who is already designing floating solutions or who plans to do so? If yes, then this is the guide for you!
What is ProdLib?
ProdLib is an electronic product catalogue for design professionals, from which you can download thousands of different high quality BIM and CAD models. ProdLib supports ArchiCAD, Revit, AutoCAD, and AutoCAD LT programs.
Best of all – The ProdLib environment is 100% free to use.
Why use ProdLib?
Your life becomes easier and the workflow is smoother, because all the files you need are conveniently in one place and you no longer have to search for suitable materials from different websites.
We have entered all our products in ProdLib, so that the design of floating solutions can go swimmingly right from the start. Our product catalogue contains all the technical data and necessary instructions. We have also included sample packages for each product based on the works carried out.
How to use ProdLib?
ProdLib can be used both as a web based catalogue as well as a computer program, which can be downloaded from here.
