Benefits of Drawings Pages
FreeTools is a free D-Tools application designed to provide Microsoft® Visio users with multiple libraries of industry-specific plan view shapes that will help make it both easier to create drawings using universally accepted industry standards and clearly communicate with trade professionals.
Three versions of FreeTools are available. “FreeTools AVC” (Audio-Video-Control) is a residential version based on the J-STD-710 symbols created by a joint committee from CEDIA, CEA and InfoComm. “FreeTools Security” is based on the SIA Architectural Graphic Standard, and “FreeTools FSE” (Fire-Safety-Emergency) is based on the NFPA 170 Standard for Fire Safety and Emergency Symbols. The FreeTools standalone plug-in is compatible with Visio 2007 to Visio 2013 and consists of a set of specific plan view Visio stencils and Visio templates.
