Our detail management system makes it easy to customize, design, save, edit, call out, and organize your details.

Share organized and up-to-date details.

Working with AutoCAD details has never been this simple!


File details into a single master hierarchy. Everyone in your office can access every detail from every project.

It's accessible in CAD.

Your detail library is right where you need it.

• Access your detail library in CAD

• Search functionality

• Organize details how you want

• Check out a preview before you place

Share with your team.

Use the same detail library as everyone else in your office. Stay standardized and connected.

Keep it all together.

We make it easy to keep the details in your library in order. You can move, edit, replace, and even add notes to them.

Content Libraries

With a wealth of hatch patterns and 10,000+ blocks in an ever-growing library, you'll always have ready-to-go content for creating your details. You can even customize our blocks and hatches or create your own from scratch.


Give your plans the exact look you're after, down to the last detail. (Pun intended.) Customize labels, layer and line colors, fonts, title blocks, plotting preferences, and more. Apply your standards to every project, office-wide.


Build exactly what you want, and annotate with complete control.

Detail Enlargement

Quickly create a close-up view of a portion of your detail. Scale it to your liking, and the dimensions will stay the same.


Place details across multiple sheets and keep the scale consistent. Once placed in a detail, blocks will scale automatically while hatches, blocks, callouts, and text remain standardized.


Call out a detail in seconds, adding its number and title to the callout with a single click. Callouts update automatically if you make changes.


Insert a Placeholder where you know you'll need a callout later. Then use our Associate tool when you’re ready. The Placeholder will turn into a callout referencing the detail you select.

Bubble Callouts

Quickly create these space-saving number callouts, and accompanying notes, on the fly while creating a detail. Then place a schedule listing each note. It’s easy to copy Bubble Callouts between details. Save time and avoid repetition.


Assign your preferred look to your detail callouts, down to the arrow style.

Update Callouts

Callouts update automatically if you make changes. Revisions don't have to be painful.
