Autocad and Home Designer Pro

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased Home Designer Pro. I also have a AutoCAD Library of thousands of pre-drawn residential details that would be to cumbersome to redraw in Home Designer. I like the floor plan benefits and 3D portion of Home Designer Pro but would like to be able to insert my AutoCAD predrawn details into Home Designer's layout sheet. Is this possible? Right now I have created a template in autocad that matches a Home Designer Layout sheet in order to include these details in my plan sets.

Thanks for your response.

You should be able to export those details from AutoCAD as .dxf files that you could then import into HD Pro then "Block" them and as blocks, one by one, add them to your library browser or if not just create a plan in HD Pro called perhaps, "CAD Blocks.plan" and then store the imported CAD detials into the plan view of that plan where they could then be "copy-pasted" into other plans as you choose.
