About

Dimensions.Guide is a comprehensive reference database of dimensioned drawings documenting the standard measurements and sizes of the everyday objects and spaces that make up our world. We offer our resources to professional designers, students, and the public alike as a way to enhance our global collective awareness of the parameters and dimensions of the things around us.

Design

Dimensions.Guide is a proactive public research project founded by architect Bryan Maddock and developed through the architecture practice Fantastic Offense.

Development

We are working tirelessly in an effort to expand our resources as quickly as possible without sacrificing the quality of the drawings or the accuracy of the information. Needless to say, this is a long-term effort to support architects, interior architects/designers, artists, graphic designers, illustrators, game designers, UX designers, and anyone generally curious about the world, and will naturally take years to be as comprehensive as we would like. If you have specific requests for content that you are actively searching for, please submit your requests to us using our Request Form.

CAD Blocks

As an online platform for better communicating spatial information, our drawings are available to download in .dwg, .svg, and .jpg formats. We are designers ourselves and know the importance of having high quality and useful drawing resources when approaching a design project. CAD blocks (.dwgs) have been an industry standard since they were introduced decades ago, but CAD downloads across the internet are typically unreliable in scale, quality, and scope. To address this problem, all of our .dwg CAD blocks and drawings have been researched and drawn in-house for quality control and include Imperial and Metric scales that can be measured to confirm that any imported drawings are scaled correctly when used.

Donations

If you love the work and ambitions of Dimensions.Guide and want to support our efforts, we gladly accept donations through Paypal. Every little bit helps us to continue developing this essential public resource. More support = more content for everyone. All donations are greatly appreciated and go directly to expanding our team and creating the best version of Dimensions.Guide that we can. Every small $5 donation is another free public drawing that better illustrates our world.
