Is there a database of bare bone venue drawings in any format (.vwx, dwg, etc)? Looking for something like the Chicago theater to build a pre viz suite with. I've done a few festival builds using the pre built SAM stages but would love to build a few rigs to match different venue sizes.

The NYC UG is looking to establish this type of sharing. FWIW, I don't think VWX can officially sanction this kind of sharing, there are likely liability issues.

This has been requested alot in the UK. For previz I think it would ideal, perhaps venues could exist in MVR files. In terms of DWG's I agree with @Kevin Allen

@Brendan Gray@Charlie Winter - Very cool ! Thank you.

I’ve been using (and supporting) Designsmith for a while. It’s definitely come in handy before. 
 

One issue I have encountered with it- which is a risk with this sort of thing in general - is keeping things up to date. I did some studies for a client in a ballroom based on a file from designsmith (it was a smaller hotel that wasn’t able to provide real drawings) and when they did a site survey it was discovered that the hotel had been renovated and some doors, etc had been moved   
 

as with any drawing exchange- buyer beware!

There is no library but if you will work with a venue in Turkey just give me a DM and I'll patch you to the right people.
