    Anyone recognize what was used to create this domestic (internal) sewage schematics?

    Hello everyone
    I found this old drawing of sewage that was created by someone who doesn't work here anymore, and no one has his contact. It looks to me like this aren't just "plane" blocks, but rather some software was used to generate it. Everything is very neatly done, and I know this guy wasn't the best drafter.
    Maybe someone can recognize what was used. Btw. everything is exploded, no way to help with block names, and layers are renamed to some random names in my language.

    Thanks in advance!

    when you select an object does it tell you what it is? we create drawings like that all the time with simple 3d blocks that we downloaded as a library from the internet. If they are aec objects, it is possible the person used some vertical, I would think you could narrow it down based on what software you have licenses for.

    No, unfortunately everything is exploded, just lines. And this was created almost 10 years ago, whatever he used we no longer have that licensed.

    Could you share a link where you got it. I also tried searching for such library, but couldn't find anything in standardized form, one manufacturer has a couple of blocks, another has couple... Nothing comprehensive and usable. I could hack it from this drawing that I have, but I'd rather use something that is properly created.

    They are all over, it depends on what type of pipe it is. I did a search on Google for "schedule 80 pvc autocad piping" and the first link is here:

    It has been a few years since we downloaded the blocks, we keep them in a palette. there are also a lot of sites that if you sign up for free you can download their blocks.
