Download Drawings

Also available on     


To download drawings with or without markups using Procore's Drawings tool.


When you download drawings from the Drawings tool, it gives you the original, unflattened drawing, maintaining any vector layers or elements. If you choose to download a drawing with markups, it will include any markup and linked items (e.g. RFIs, submittals, documents, punch items, observations, inspections, sketches, drawings, and photos). The tag for each item, such as "RFI 7," will show as a hyperlink that will direct you to the item in Procore.
