    Blueprints For Takeoffs + Advice [?]

    *fingers crossed I'm in the right area*

    [Helpful]Community,

    For the past two (2) years I've been working in solutions and technical support. Recently I've been taking on more and more knowledge, working into doing takeoffs. At this time I'm simply using 'Cloud Takeoff'. I was wondering if there might be some helpful members out there that may be willing to donate some old or current blueprints. I know some contractors and engineers can be secretive with their prints. But I know some that are open to sharing. I'm looking to do as much as I can. I want to seize this opportunity, learning something like this that is extremely useful. I look forward to some responses- positive and negative. And if anyone has any advise, that would be greatly received as well. Thank you.

    Not sure how much luck you will have. A lot of designs are copy written or the property of the designer. I even know of a casino that was doing an expansion and thought they would the mechanical design on the original building. Nope. They were sued.
    Tracers work both ways.

    Yeah. But I know that some architects and engineers have some throw-aways. Maybe even some students that have projects they don't mind sharing. I'll keep my eyes open.
