Ive just started a freelance job in a IT Company.
Im looking for a ISO or 3d dwg of 'Plastic Skirting and Dado Trunking'
Does anyone have this dwg? or knows where i can get it.

I'd think you would have to go directly to a manufacturer's website in hopes of finding drawings of these items. Have you tried that yet? Or, go out and buy one of each and measure/draw them up yourself.

Thanks for replying to my post. The thing is the company has a drawing of the trunking, that was done by the cad person before me, and all they have is a paper copy of it. The Cad person drew the trunking in ISO, i havent had that much time using ISO in my drawings and just wondered if anyone had one, because the company are pushing me for a deadline.

Do you have access to a digitizer? The paper copy is taped to the digitizer then the digitizer is calibrated. The drawing is electronically traced using the digitizer's puck.
Do you have the manufacturer's name?

i dont have a digitizer :(
I have no manufacturer's information, just a Isometric drawing that the last cad guy did

I've tried a search re: "plastic skirting" and "dado trunking" but have yet to come across a website that has an actual drawing available for download. I was hoping for a 2D section at the very least. I didn't even bother looking for a 3D drawing.
No possibility you have an example in house or can rip one off the wall? Just kidding.
Can you scan and post the drawing you do have?

Tin: You're stretching me to the limit here but I think I found something that might be of interest.
The company is called Dietzel Univolt.
Click on the link below. You'll be taken to the home page of the company.
Next, click on Support.
Under Support, click on Download-Center.
Under Download-Center click on Catalogues.
In the list of catalogues you want: General Catalogue: 8. Cable Trunking.
Download the 2150KB pdf file 08_cabletrunkings_low.pdf.
The file has 22 pages starting with page number 112. Page through the file. You'll not only find photographs and pertinent data but every so often you'll come across some sections with minimal dimensions.
Hope this gets you started. Good luck.

Your welcomed, Tin.
Wish I had just come across the information a little bit earlier in the search. But, as they say, "all's well that ends well." Glad to be of some small service.
