APACAD.org features more than 250 (and counting) CAD details from APA - The Engineered Wood Association's most popular publications. Sorted by product and construction category, CAD (computer-aided design) designs are available in four different formats -- DWG, DWF, DXF and PDF -- that can be quickly downloaded and inserted into your building plans. Just click on a category in the CAD Detail Index (in the left-column menu or below) to access a list of related designs. When you locate the detail you want, click one of the format buttons to download it to your computer.

Because APA has no control over quality of workmanship or the conditions under which engineered wood products are used, it cannot accept responsibility of product performance or designs as actually constructed. Consult your local jurisdiction or design professional to assure compliance with code, construction and performance requirements.
