The Detail Library provides hundreds of construction details for you to download and use adjust for your own projects. The details are available in 2D Revit, CAD dwg, and 3D SketchUp. You can start downloading straight away and build your own detail reference library. Not like other BIM libraries, the Detail Library contains fully resolved details rather than individual components.
