Stardraw Libraries Pass 600 Manufacturer Milestone
Posted on Thursday, June 16, 2011

Multi award-winning software provider has announced a significant milestone for their Symbols Libraries, which now number over 600 manufacturers in total and a staggering 54,000 symbols.'s Symbols Libraries have been under continual development since their inauguration almost two decades ago in 1992. Representing over fifty man years of work, each symbol is painstakingly drawn by in-house professional CAD draughtsmen to create the highest quality, most comprehensive libraries available anywhere. guarantees no duplicates and a consistent qualitative standard throughout.

Since the very beginning, this invaluable service has been provided free of charge to manufacturers — all they have to do is provide the relevant product information in the form of 2D DWG or DXF drawing files, and will do the rest. Symbols are prioritized on the basis of user requests from registered users holding a current subscription via's online Symbols Request service. All that is required are the manufacturer details and the model number of the product required, and — as for the manufacturers — will do the rest.

Symbol updates are published almost daily, so registered users may synchronise their libraries whenever they wish. Users with a current subscription to Stardraw Audio and Stardraw AV have access to Online Libraries so any new symbol is available to them immediately, without prior download.

"The Symbols Libraries are a core activity for us at Stardraw, and key to the intrinsic value of our Design products," noted marketing director Rob Robinson. "In addition to being the only software provider who offers such a comprehensive symbols service, we can guarantee that our libraries are the most up-to-date and relevant on the market because they are entirely user-led, hence market-driven. We do get the odd request from people who haven't entirely thought things through — a request for "ALL Sony products" springs to mind - but by and large our users are incredibly helpful and allow us to provide an excellent — and unique — service."
