About municipal libraries
Some Municipalities have uploaded a selection of completed models. You can change between the municipal libraries and the supplier library as you wish. This can be done by changing the path.
Important to know:
Municipal libraries contain several assemblies. The models are big, so give the program some time to load products.
This is sample drawings and are not to be used for further drawing or to generate bill of materials (BOM).
The meaning with these drawings is to better visualize desired solution/standardization.
Reservations are made if there are any geometrical or project errors. Contact the municipality for any questions or clarifications.
It is referred to local water and sewer norms and other rules/standards.
If you are experiencing lag, make sure your computer fulfils the minimum requirements and uses the correct graphic card.
