Industry-standard symbols for Visio

FreeTools PSL (Professional Symbol Library) 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.

FreeTools PSL is initially available with three Symbol Libraries – Audio-Video-Control, Security, and Custom. The AVC (Audio-Video-Control) stencils are a residential version based on the J-STD-710 symbols created by a joint committee from CEDIA, CEA, and InfoComm. The Security stencils are based on the SIA Architectural Graphic Standard, and the Custom stencils contain useful symbols such as wire, text call out, and a Universal dimension shape.

FreeTools ships with a pre-defined set of drawing templates based on metric and imperial unit drawing sizes. Once the FreeTools software is registered, all drawings will feature your company information, logo and project information for a professional look.

Future versions of FreeTools symbols will include NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) stencils based on the NFPA 170 Standard for Fire Safety and Emergency Symbols, as well as ECD (Electrical Construction Drawings) based on the NECA-1002606 standards. The FreeTools PSL 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. All FreeTools standard symbols are based on actual industry standards.
