CAD Library: Discussion Forum

CAD Library email discussion group

A large CAD-focused discussion forum — the CAD Library user group. Members share their experiences using CAD and their working knowledge of techniques and methods. Participation is open to all talented and friendly CAD users who might be interested in the group’s grass-root efforts to establish a repository of reference information in our publicly searchable conversations, and to build-up an open source library of parts and symbols. We strive to make our spam-free forum a popular destination for those seeking answers and for sharing solutions. If you seek kindred spirits to share your interest in CAD and the open source philosophy, you are invited to join the CAD Library email discussion group.


CAD Library is an email discussion group with more than 3000 members. Membership is open to any talented and friendly CAD user who is capable of contributing to our grass-roots initiative. Active participation represents a constructive learning and testing resource. Members share resources and techniques via the group’s online resources. Admittedly ambitious is the goal of establishing an open source parts library, consisting of blueprints, color palettes, documentation, details, hatch patterns, line styles, macros, materials, meshes, models, plugins, profiles, symbols, templates, textures, tutorials, etc. Such resources may be exchanged using the group’s online resources.

Once you join the group, you’ll have immediate access to all the features of the user group – post messages and participate in threaded discussions on the forum, freelance on any commercial projects. You’ll retain full control of your membership; you can change your group membership settings and preferences at any time. Discover how to join by visiting CAD Library at Google Groups…
