  1. Download the symbols by clicking on the link.
  2. Extract the symbols in the folder where ProfiCAD Library is installed. The path can be determined in program settings (F12) – Paths.
  3. There are great many symbols. Therefore, we recommend to use the symbol search function, when inserting into the drawing.

ProfiCAD viewer lets you view drawings created in Proficad on Android devices.

For now, the viewer has several limitations (for example, it does not show cross-references).

How to open a drawing in ProfiCAD Viewer?

To transfer a drawing into your tablet or cellphone, use one of the cloud storage services (e.g., Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive etc.). Click on the drawing that you wish to view. A menu of programs will open. Select ProfiCAD Viewer from the menu.

It is also possible to open drawings directly from email (tested with Gmail).
