Current Sample CD set for residential home


Can someone point me to a sample Construction Document set of a residential home developed and published in AC?  Thanks


I can share one but my template is completely custom. So not sure if that's what you are looking for.

Thanks.  My goal is to compare what is possible in the different software I am trialing.  I already have a pdf set prepared in Revit want to compare it against AC and VW.  Most pdf samples I’ve seen have been schematic level packages.  

"What is possible" in any of AC, Revit and VW is limited by the user and the end goals. Seeing random PDF output from each really won't tell you anything about the software, but more about the skills of the person who created the set... and what level of detail they needed for a particular project.


One of the forum moderators   •   AC 25 USA and earlier   •   MacOS 11.6.6, iMac Pro some degree. I just want to see final output alongside trialing the software.  Many colleagues are claiming their drawings are "looking" much better in AC or VW...vs Revit.  I'd like to see what "better" is for myself.

"Better" is in the eye of the beholder.  I can give you two sets, each from someone who thinks they're outstanding.  You may hate lineweights etc on one and love the other.  Again, you have 100% control over what your drawings will look like and can match whatever style your office has chosen.  Now, if you want to get specific and share an image of part of what you consider an unacceptable drawing...and part of the same drawing in a way that you consider 'much better'... then folks here would be happy to chip in and say "yeah that's easy you go", or "oh, that's hard to do in AC", etc.

If you go to the 'Let's get started' articles ...

You will find the first article is a 'Welcome' with a link to documenting in Archicad and the second is a variety of sample files you can download and open with a trial version of Archicad (assuming you don't actually own Archicad yet).

I have never really looked at them so not sure how set up they are for producing the final documentation - but they might be worth a look.

This was 12 years ago.

I received a bunch of very impresive sets, from several users, which I keep. Dave Sanders explicitly said I could share one of his here, but re-reading that thread I notice he keeps some online on his web page,

wow, going back to these old posts brings back memories! I remember these forum members. Dave a had a great framing tool  for doing quantity takeoffs.


Is Dwight still around I wonder...?

Oh no 😔. Thank you for sharing the link. He was such an important and witty part of the Archicad forum.
