This page contains detail
files for use with the Shopdrawing tool in v14.1 of the GDS
Be prepared for a long download if you have a
dialup connection. DWG files don't compress very much and there
are lots of files for each vendor. Take note of the file size to
get an idea of how long the download might take.
You need to be a licensed user of the v14.1 program in order to
install any of these details. Contact us by phone or email if
you would like to purchase this version of the program, or if
you have any questions.
Be sure to watch the Training Videos on the v14.1 CD-ROM and/or
read the Shopdrawing Program help inside the Help menu in the
GDS program. There are several little tricks that you will not
discover unless you spend the time to review the provided help.

sure you select the latest v14.1 vendor that matches the details
you are installing, otherwise the drawings won't be associated
to the proper framing systems.
