Preface
The "A/E/C CADD Standard Manual" has
been developed by the CADD/GIS Technology
Center (CGTC) for Facilities, Infrastructure, and
Environment to eliminate redundant ComputerAided Design and Drafting (CADD) standardization efforts within the Department of Defense
(DoD) and the Federal Government. The
manual is part of an initiative to consolidate
existing CADD drafting standards and to
develop data standards that address the entire
life cycle of facilities within the DoD. The
A/E/C CADD Standard Manual is part of a set
of standards being developed by the CGTC.

In 1995, the combined resources of the


CADD/GIS Technology Center, the American
Institute of Architects (AIA), the Construction
Specifications Institute (CSI), the United States
Coast Guard, the Sheet Metal and Air
Conditioning Contractors National Association
(SMACNA), the General Services
Administration (GSA), and the National
Institute of Building Sciences' (NIBS) Facility
Information Council began an effort to develop
a single CADD standard for the United States.
Working together, these organizations agreed to
develop an integrated set of documents that
collectively would represent the United States
National CAD Standard.
The sections of the United States National
CAD Standard were developed as follows:

Layering and model file naming were


developed and published by AIA, with
assistance from CSI and CGTC.

Drawing set organization and sheet file


naming were developed and published by
CSI, assisted by CGTC, and reviewed by
AIA.

Sheet organization was developed and


published by CSI, with assistance from AIA
and CGTC.

Schedules were developed and published by


CSI, assisted by CGTC, and reviewed by
AIA.

Plotting guidelines (colors and line weights)


were developed by CGTC and the United
States Coast Guard, and reviewed by CSI
and AIA.

Drafting conventions including notations,


symbols, diagrams, scales, and line types
were developed by CSI, CGTC, the United
States Coast Guard, and SMACNA; assisted
by AIA; and published by CSI.

The purpose of this manual is to set a basic


CADD standard to ensure consistent electronic
deliverables (products) within the DoD. These
consistent deliverables are part of a comprehensive installation life-cycle management strategy.
This manual sets a CADD standard specifically
for the architectural, engineering, and construction
disciplines of facilities development and civil
works projects. As this manual evolves, it will be
integrated with other standards initiatives by the
CADD/GIS Technology Center (CGTC) for

Chapter 1 Introduction

Facilities, Infrastructure, and Environment such


as Contract Language Guidelines, Spatial Data
Standards, and Facility Management (FM)
Standards.

Background
The immediate benefits of CADD standards
are many: consistent CADD products for customers; uniform requirements for A-E deliverables; sharing of products and expertise; and
collection, manipulation, and exchange of
database information. Recognizing such
potential benefits, each of the DoD agencies
independently initiated efforts to establish
CADD standards in the late 1980's. The Air
Force Logistics Command (1989) released the
"Architectural and Engineering Services for
CADD Implementation Within Air Force
Logistics Command." Headquarters, U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers (1990), published Engineer
Manual 1110-1-1807, "Standards Manual for
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Computer-Aided
Design and Drafting (CADD) Systems." In
1993, the Naval Facilities Engineering Command
distributed its "Policy and Procedures for
Electronic Deliverables of Facilities ComputerAided Design and Drafting (CADD) Systems."
To consolidate these efforts into a single
standard, the CGTC was tasked to develop
standards for the A/E/C disciplines includes Civil
Works. This manual presents the CGTC's effort
at standardizing CADD requirements for A/E/C
design and construction documents. To facilitate
the use of this standard, supplementary software
packages are available that automate the
implementation and use of the standard. This
software allows the operator to select preset
system variables to align with the requirements
of the "A/E/C CADD Standard Manual" to
ensure consistent and easy compliance with the
standard (see Chapter 6, "A/E/C CADD Standard
Implementation Tools").

International System of Units


(SI) Considerations
For this standard manual, the impact of the SI,
more commonly referred to as the metric system,
is addressed on such items as drawing scales,
sheet sizes, and dimensioning. The SI was
established by the General Conference of Weights
and Measures of 1960, as interpreted or modified
from time to time for the United States by the
Secretary of Commerce under the authority of
Public Law 94-168, the Metric Conversion Act of
1975, and the Metric Education Act of 1978. As
of January 1, 1992, in accordance with Public
Laws 94-168 and 100-418, the Omnibus Trade
and Competitiveness Act of 1988, and Executive
Order 12770, "Metric Usage in Federal
Government Programs," July 25, 1991, all new
and revised construction standards and criteria
must be developed using the SI.

Future Technologies
There are several ongoing initiatives to create
a universal language for collaborative work in the
area of building and construction software. This
work stems from the need to automate current
building and construction tasks to become more
efficient and cost effective. One of these initiatives is by the International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI), a nonprofit building industry alliance
comprising architects, engineers, contractors,
software vendors, government agencies, research
laboratories, and universities. The goal of the IAI
is to unite the A/E/C and FM businesses by
specifying Industry Foundation Classes (LFCs) as
a universal language. The concept behind the
DFCs is to create a series of standard intelligent
software objects for the building industry that
allow all process disciplines (i.e., architects,
designers, engineers, builders, facilities managers)
to exchange information. The LAI is developing
LFCs that allow current software packages such as
AutoCAD and MicroStation to share building and
construction data. LFCs would improve the
quality of the life-cycle of a building from

Chapter 1

Introduction

construction through maintenance and ultimately


to demolition. These improvements would result
from reductions in expense and delivery time,
enhanced communications, and an increase in
discipline proficiency.
A prerequisite of this effort is the deployment
of mechanisms capable of retaining knowledge
during the project life cycle. Intelligent Object
Classes (IOCs) can serve this purpose. An IOC
gathers information during the progression of the
project and makes it available to the participants.
Starting from the design phase, IOCs collect
additional data about an object, for example,
"how to design" or "how to construct" that
particular object. The structure of an IOC
contains information about the following:

Generic attributes of common use (e.g.,


identification, material).

Methods to support specialist tasks (e.g.,


volume calculations).

CADD representation information including


geometry and topology.

Interrelationships with other objects.

In tandem with the IAI effort, the CGTC is


developing nongraphic attribute data as part of
the A/E/C CADD Standard.

Interchangeable Terminology
Within the various commercially available
CADD systems, many identical or related
concepts are given different names. To aid users
of this manual, some instances of related or
interchangeable terminology used in
MicroStation and AutoCAD are listed in Table 1.

Target Systems
This manual is not targeted toward any
specific CADD system or software. However, to
ensure successful translations among CADD
Chapter 1

Introduction

applications, certain system-specific


characteristics were considered and the standard
adjusted accordingly. In preparing the standard,
several baseline decisions were made:

The standard must be applicable to the latest


release of commercially available CADD
packages. AutoCAD and MicroStation were
chosen based on their prevalence in the DoD
and their availability through the Installation
Management/Facilities CAD2 contract.

The standard is based on CADD applications


that utilize layer/level names and reference
files.

The standard requires every final plotted


drawing sheet to have its own separate
electronic drawing file.

Since three-dimensional files are not compatible with two-dimensional files, it is recommended that all drawings be created as 3-D
files.

Additions/Revisions
This standard is intended to be neither static
nor all-inclusive and thus will be updated and
enhanced as appropriate. Suggestions for
improvements are strongly encouraged so that
subsequent updates will reflect the input and
needs of CADD users.

Introduction

2 Drawing File Organization


Design Cube
Available drawing area
The two most extensively used CADD
applications within the DoD, AutoCAD and
MicroStation, manage the available drawing area
in an electronic file differently. MicroStation
has a limited drawing area (design cube)
composed of individual points that restrict the
physical size of any drawing (Figure 1).
MicroStation's design cube has
4,294,967,296 points in each axis (x,y,z) of the
design cube. These points are called positional
units (PU). Positional units are grouped into
larger units called subunits (SU), and subunits
are grouped into even larger units called master
units (MU). Together, these groups are called
working units (MU:SU:PU). These groups will
be discussed in more detail in the next section.

MlcroStaon's Finite Design Cube


(Each axis has 4,294,967,296 positional units)

+Z

By defining the values of working .units, the


MicroStation user defines the measurable limits
of the design cube. For example, the working
units for most architectural drawings (feetinches) are 1:12:8000 (MU = feet, SU = inches).
With these working units, a design cube of
44,739 feet per side is created:
AutoCAD's Infinite Drawing Area

4,294,967,296 - (12 inJftx 8000) = 44,739ft


Figure 1. Available drawing size

For an SI (metric) drawing with working


units of 1:1:100 (MU = millimeters, SU = none),
the design cube has a length of 42,949,672
millimeters per side.

Chapter 2 Drawing File Organization

4,294,967,296 + (lmmx 100) = 42,949,672 mm

In contrast, AutoCAD's approach provides


for a drawing area with infinite range in each
positive and negative axis (x,y,z).
Note: The upcoming MicroStation V8 will also
allow for an infinite drawing area.

CADD systems allow the designer to work in


"real world" units. The most common units are
feet and inches, feet and tenths of feet, meters,
and millimeters.
MicroStation's approach to file accuracy
allows the user to set the working units (i.e., real
world units) as the following, introduced in the
previous section:

Master units (MU) = The largest unit that


may be referred to when working in the
design file (e.g., feet, meters).
Subunits (SU) = Subdivisions of master units
in the working unit definition (e.g., inches,
millimeters).
Positional units (PU) = The smallest unit that
may be addressed in the design file. The
number of positional units per subunit
determines the precision of the drawing and
the size of the design cube.

In AutoCAD, the basic drawing unit for any


file is the distance between two fixed Cartesian
coordinates. For example, the distance between
coordinates (1,1,1) and (1,1,2) is one drawing
unit. A drawing unit can correspond to any
measurement (e.g., inch, foot, meter, mile).
AutoCAD users may enter the "Units" display
option to set the desired drawing units.

Drawing units/working units
recommendations
Recommendations for working units in
MicroStation design files are shown in Table 2.
AutoCAD users should choose either the
architectural (feet and inches), engineering (feet
and tenths), or decimal (suitable for meters or
millimeters) options as provided in the "Units"
command screen.
Origin (global origin)
Positioned within every electronic drawing
file is an origin ("global origin" in MicroStation
and "origin" in AutoCAD). The origin of a
drawing file is important because it serves as the
point of reference from which all other elements
are located. Origins are typically defined
(located) in a drawing file by the Cartesian
coordinate system of x, y, and z (Figure 3).

The "Units" command of AutoCAD does not


have a direct metric system setup. For metric
designs, the recommended procedure is to choose
the "Decimal" option in the drawing units
dialogue box (Figure 2). This will allow

MicroStatlon's Global Origin

Drawing File Origin - X,Y,Z

The benefit of standardizing the location of


the origin of a drawing is most notable in the use
of reference files (see section "Reference Files
(XREFs)" in Chapter 4). Also, in certain
disciplines, particularly mapping, the location of
the origin determines the available drawing area
(MicroStation only). A standardized origin is
also helpful when translating files between
CADD applications. Origin recommendations
are given in Table 2 (Note: for AutoCAD users
the recommended global origin will be 0,0,0).
Note: In MicroStation, the location of the global
origin does not affect the size of the design cube,
but does limit the range of the positive and
negative x,y, and z positional units. For
example, a design file with the global origin
located in the center of the design cube limits the
number of positional units in each axis (x, y, and
z) to 2,147,483,648.

Model Files and Sheet Files

AutoCAD's Drawing File Origin

Figure 3. Origins in MicroStation and AutoCAD

Chapter 2 Drawing File Organization

Two distinct types of CADD files are


addressed in this standard: model files and sheet
files.

A model file contains the physical


components of a building (e.g., columns, walls,
windows, ductwork, piping, etc.). Model files
are drawn at full scale and typically represent
plans, elevations, sections, etc.
A sheet file is synonymous with a plotted
CADD drawing file. A sheet file is a selected
view or portion of the model file(s) within a
border sheet. Sheet files are usually plotted at a
particular scale, since the border sheet is scaled
up to fit around the full scale model files. In
other words, a sheet file is a "ready-to-plot"
CADD file.
Figure 4 illustrates how different model files
are referenced to a sheet file (notice that the
border sheet is always a referenced model file).
A sheet file is the combination of referenced
model files with sheet-specific text/symbols to
create a final "ready-to-plot" CADD file. A
useful American Institute of Architects (ALA.)
rule of thumb states: "Model files are always
referenced by other files, while sheet files are
never referenced by other files." See Chapter 4
for additional information.

Electronic Drawing File


Naming Conventions
Naming conventions for electronic drawing
files (both model files and sheet files) allow
CADD users to determine the contents of a
drawing without actually displaying the file.
They also provide a convenient and clear
structure for organizing drawing files within
project directories.

Model file naming convention


The model file naming convention (Figure 5)
has one optional field, followed by three
mandatory fields. While the first field is optional
and may be omitted, the remaining fields must be
used and in the correct sequence.
The first field is entirely optional and can be
used for a 0 to 20-character Project Code.
Project codes are developed by the user or the
system administrator and are not standardized
within this document. The use of Project Codes
in file names is highly recommended, because it
prevents the same file name from existing in
different directories. Following the optional

Model File: Border Sheet


(referenced file)
Model File: Enlorged Floor Plon
(referenced file)
Model File: Plumbing Piping Plan

Sheet File: Plumbing Piping Plan
(active file)

Project Code, the first two-character field


represents the Discipline Designator. The
allowable characters for the first character in the
Discipline Designator are listed in Table 3. The
second character of the Discipline Designator
field is always a hyphen "-". The next twocharacter field represents the Model File Type
(Table 4). The final four-character field is userdefinable.
Note: If the Workspace and Checker are being
implemented, all eight of the mandatory
characters in the model file name must be used
and in the correct sequence. If all of the User
Definable characters are not needed,
placeholders must be usedfor the Workspace to
function properly.
Example: The model file name for a project
at Engineer Research and Development Center
(ERDC), Building 8000, 1st floor, Architectural
Floor Plan could be:
ERDC8000A-FPFlXX.dgn/dwg
where ERDC8000 is the Project Code, A- is the
Discipline Designator, FP is the Model File
Type (Floor Plan), and Fl is a user-definable set
of characters for Floor 1. Since all the user
definable characters were not used, the
characters XX were used as placeholders.

* = Not in NCS 2.0

These revisions would not be made on existing


as-built model files, but on copies to ensure the
original as-builts are not modified.
A new model file type, Existing/Demolition
(XD*, where * means this type is not in NCS
2.0), has been added to the standard to allow
users to make revisions to as-built files. This
model file type is used to aid users in separating
existing to remain items from items that will be
demolished (for more information on the
demolition levels/layers, see Chapter 4,
"Demolition levels/layers").
Example: An Architect has an existing asbuilt Floor Plan model file for Building 1000,
2nd floor. For the current project, walls will be
demolished and new walls constructed on the 2nd
floor. First, a copy would be made of the
original as-built file (B1000AFPF2XX.dgn/dwg) , which would be renamed to
B1000RENA-XDF2XX.dgn/dwg (B1000REN is
the Project Code, A- is the Discipline
Designator, XD is the Model File Type
(Existing/Demolition), and F2XX are user
definable characters (F2=Floor 2)). The
architect would open this file and move all
demolition items to the first demolition

12

level/layer at that level/layer's correct


symbology (if phased demolition is involved,
the other levels/layers would be used). When
the new items are drawn, the architect would
open a new model file called something like
B 1000RENA-FPF2XX.dgn/dwg
(B1000REN is the Project Code, A- is the
Discipline Designator, FP is the Model File
Type (Floor Plan), and F2XX are user definable
characters (F2=Floor 2)). The file
B1000RENA-XDF2XX.dgn/dwg
would be referenced in with the Demolition
levels/layers turned off. The architect would
then use the Floor Plan active levels/layers to
construct the new items for that project.
Sheet file naming convention
The sheet file naming convention (Figure 6)
has one optional field, followed by four
mandatory fields. Similar to the format for
model file naming, the first field is optional,
while the remaining fields must be used and in
the correct sequence.
The first field is entirely optional and can be
used for a 0 to 20-character Project Code (see
"Model File naming convention"). The next two
characters are the Discipline Designator with
Level 2 Designator (see Table 5). The next
character is the Sheet Type Designator (see
Table 6) followed by a two-character Sheet
Sequence Number (01-99). The remaining three
characters are user-definable.

further subdivide the discipline (see Table 5).

Note: Occasionally, more than one Sheet Type


(e.g., plan, elevation, detail) will be represented
in one sheetfile. If this is the case, the
dominant sheet type determines the Sheet Type
Designator.

where ERDC8000 is the Project Code, A- is the


Discipline Designator, 1 is the Sheet Type

Coordination Between Sheet


File Name and Sheet Identifier
In assigning a sheet identifier (for use in the
sheet identification block, reference bubbles,
etc.), the user should coordinate with the name
assigned to the electronic sheet file. The sheet
identifier should consist of the discipline
designator, sheet type designator, and the sheet
sequence number (Figure 7).

As far as the sequence of the discipline


designators in a drawing set, the National CAD
Standard mandates that the disciplines follow
the order as shown in Table 3.

3 Graphic Concepts
in Table 7, with the optional 1.00 mm, 1.40 mm,
and 2.00 mm lines, are considered sufficient and
should not be expanded unless an appreciable
improvement in drawing clarity or contrast can
be realized. The following are typical usages for
the line widths shown in Table 7:

Presentation Graphics
The first step in establishing an effective
CADD standard is the development of a uniform
approach to presentation graphics. Presentation
graphics typically consist of drawing elements
such as lines, arcs, shapes, text, and their
attributes (line color, line width, and line style).
This chapter presents brief overviews of the
characteristics of presentation graphics and the
philosophy used to standardize them.

Fine (0.18 mm). Fine lines should be used


sparingly, mostly for poche/patterning (this
line thickness typically does not reproduce
well in blue-line format and/or in
photocopies).

Line widths

Thin (0.25 mm). Thin lines should be used


for depicting dimension lines, dimension
leader/witness lines, note leader lines, line
terminators (arrowheads, dots, slashes),
phantom lines, hidden lines, center lines,
long break lines, schedule grid lines, and
object lines seen at a distance.

Although "monotone" line work is not


contractually improper, varied line widths
substantially improve readability. Most
commercial CADD systems provide an extensive
variety of line widths. However, for the majority
of A/E/C drawings, the five line widths defined

Option 2 (1.40 mm). This line weight should


be used for border sheet outlines and cover
sheet line work, and as an option for the
designer as required.

Medium (0.35 mm). Medium lines should


be used for depicting minor object lines,
dimension text, text for notes/callouts, and
schedule text.
Wide (0.50 mm). Wide lines should be used
for major object lines, cut lines, section
cutting plane lines, and titles.
Extra wide (0.70 mm). Extra wide lines
should be used for minor title underlining,
schedule outlines, large titles, and object
lines requiring special emphasis. For very
large scale details drawn at 3 in. = 1 ft-0 in.
or larger, the extra wide width should be
used for the object lines. Extra wide widths
are also appropriate for use as an elevation
grade line, building footprint, or top of
grade lines on section/foundation details.
Option 1 (1.00 mm). This line weight should
be used for major title underlining and
separating portions of drawings.

Option 3 (2.00 mm). This line weight should


be used for border sheet outlines and cover
sheet line work and as an option for the
designer as required.

Line types/styles
The line types/styles selected for this
standard are listed in Table 8. Only line IDs 0,
2, 7 and 11 are included in ISO 128 (ISO 1982).
The CGTC has created line style files for
MicroStation and AutoCAD (called tsaec.rsc
and tsaec.lin, respectively) which include the
line styles in Table 9, as well as additional
discipline line styles. Appendix D contains
additional line styles utilized in the standard.
These files are available on the Release 2.0 CD,
as well as on the CGTC's Internet site at

Chapter 3

Graphic Concepts

Line color

Screening

The primary reason to use color in CADD


drawings is to improve the clarity of the drawing
on a computer monitor. The variety of colors
available in a CADD application depends on the
capabilities of the computer monitor and its
video card. Today, most systems are capable of
displaying from 16 to 256 colors. Based on the
limitations of monitor color display capabilities
and differing CADD system plotting methods,
this manual recommends that all A/E/C
drawings be created using the basic colors
presented in Table 9 whenever possible.

Screened images are created through a process in which the density and pattern of black
and white dots are varied to simulate different
shades of gray. Varying the intensity of gray
scales allows users to distinguish different
aspects of a drawing when it is plotted. For
example, an area on a site designated for
demolition can be assigned a color that has been
assigned a screening percentage. When plotted,
the area will be shown at a lighter shade compared with other elements in the drawing. This
will allow the contractor to immediately identify
the demolition area on the drawing.

Note: The recommended colors are best viewed


on a monitor with a black background.

Table 10 lists colors recommended to be


used for screening along with a recommended
screening percentage. Using Table 10, MicroStation users can edit a plotter driver, using a
text editor, to assign a screening percentage to
the specific colors (see the MicroStation user's
manuals for information on working with
plotter/printer drivers).

Appendix C contains a 256-color map for


the AutoCAD and MicroStation color palettes.
The table maps AutoCAD's default color palette
to MicroStation's default color palette. The
color table is provided for those users who
require more colors than the eight recommended
by this standard.

Graphic Concepts

AutoCAD users must specify requirements


for screening according to the output device
used. Due to the number of output devices
AutoCAD supports, users should consult the
help documentation provided within AutoCAD
for information on assigning recommended
screening percentages.
Text styles/fonts
Contrasting text styles (or fonts) are used
within a drawing to delineate types of information. In most A/E/C drawings, the five fonts
shown in Table 11 should be sufficient.

Monotext font. This font creates text characters that are evenly spaced. Monotext font
should be used where text fields need to be
aligned such as in schedules or, in some
cases, title blocks. In AutoCAD, use the
monotxt font and in MicroStation use
Font #3.
Proportional font. This font creates text
where the characters are proportionally
spaced. It is appropriate for general notes,
labels, or title blocks. In AutoCAD, use the
romans (Roman Simplex) font with a width
factor of 0.8. In MicroStation use Font #1.
Slanted font. A slanted font is used where
text needs to be easily distinguished from
other text. This font can be created in
AutoCAD by using the romans font with the
Obliquing Angle set to 21.8 deg to achieve
the American Standard slope of 2 in 5
(68.2 deg). In MicroStation use Font #23.
Filled font. Filled fonts are used primarily
for titles and on cover sheets. For AutoCAD,
the recommended font is the swiss
TrueType font (Note: The TEXTFILL
system variable needs to be set to "1" ).
MicroStation users should use Font #43 (the
Microsoft arialbd.ttf font file can be used as
an alternate text style for the filled font).

Chapter 3

Graphic Concepts

Outline font. When a pen plotter is used for


final output, the outline font is used as a
substitute for filled fonts for major titles
such as cover sheet information to save
plotting time. For AutoCAD, the
recommended font is the sasb (Sans Serifbold) PostScript font. For MicroStation, use
Font #42.

Plotting
Printers and plotters are controlled by files
called pen tables or feature tables. These files
(tables) convert thicknesses and/or color in an
electronic file to line thicknesses on a paper
drawing.
This manual standardizes presentation
graphics as they relate to electronic drawing
files (screen display) and not the final printed or
plotted paper drawing. By employing pen
tables, each agency can ensure that consistent
drawings are produced from an electronic file
regardless of the type of printer or plotter used.
It is the responsibility of each field activity to
develop pen tables based on the printer/plotter
used at that activity.

Border Sheets
Sheet sizes
Typical A/E/C projects (contract documents) will be prepared on Al sheets in accordance with the ISO sheet size shown in Table 12,
which also shows American National Standards
Institute (ANSI) equivalents (American Society
of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Y14.1
(1995)).
The ISO A0 sheet is recommended for large
maps (i.e., installation master plans and
drawings for civil works projects).

Note: Users plotting Al size drawings on ANSI


D-size paper should reduce the width of the Al
border from 594 mm (23.39 in.) to 559 mm
(22.0 in.). The length can remain the same.
This revised border will fit on an ANSI D-size
sheet (22 by 34 in.) and can be reproduced on
standard office photocopiers.
Title block
The CGTC recommends the use of a vertical title block placed in the right-hand margin of
the border sheet as shown in Figure 8. Use of
the vertical title block provides the most usable
drawing space on a sheet. The vertical title
block also ensures that the most prevalent and
pertinent information remains at the bottom
right of the sheet. In compliance with the
Uniform Drawing System (CSI2001), title block
data will include the following:
Designer identification block
Issue block
Management block
Project identification block/sheet title block
Sheet identification block

Chapter 3

Graphic Concepts

Note: Local standards may modify the content


of the title block but should not alter its size or
configuration if possible. See the Uniform
Drawing System for additional
recommendations.
Designer identification block. The
designer identification block (Figure 9) contains
the logo or name of the agency that designed the
sheet. This space could also be expanded (by
reducing the size of the issue block) to
accommodate professional seals when required.
Issue block. The issue block (Figure 10)
contains a history of revisions, addenda, and/or
clarifications to the sheet. The first entry should
be placed on the lower left-hand line of the issue
block and subsequent entries should be made
above it.
Management block. The management
block (Figure 11) contains information about the
designer, reviewer, and submitter. This block
can also be used to maintain filing information
about the drawing, such as the file name, plot
scale, and drawing code (this information is
sometimes plotted outside the drawing sheet cut
line). If an A-E has developed the drawings,
there is room for information about the firm in
the lower left portion of the block.

Project identification block/sheet title


block. The project identification block/sheet
title block (Figure 12) contains two sets of
information. First, the project name is identified, possibly with the location or phase of the
project identified. If small enough, a project
logo can be presented in this block. The second
set of information contains a description of the
content of the sheet (e.g., Architectural Floor
Plan). If more than one type of information is
presented on the sheet (i.e., plans, schedules,
details), the most important information is
identified.
Sheet identification block. The sheet
identification block (Figure 13) contains the
sheet identifier. This sheet identifier is composed of the discipline designator, the sheet type
designator, and the sheet sequence number
described in the section, "Electronic Drawing
File Naming Conventions" (Chapter 2). The
"number of sheets" listing is optional and can
contain either the total number of sheets for the
entire project drawing set or the number of
sheets for that particular discipline designator.

Drawing Scales

The A/E/C CADD Standard recommends


text heights for these scales in accordance with
Leroy lettering sizes. Table 14 lists
recommended text sizes using inch-pound
scales. Table 15 lists recommended text sizes
using metric scales.

Dimensioning in Metric (SI)


Methodologies for dimensioning metric (SI)
drawings are based upon the recommendations
of the Construction Metrication Council of the
National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS),
Washington, DC. These recommendations
comply with the American Society for Testing
and Materials (ASTM) E 621-94, "Standard
Practice for the Use of Metric (SI) Units in
Building Design and Construction" (ASTM
1999).
Millimeters

The preferred unit of measure for most


A/E/C work is millimeters. Unit notations are
unnecessary and should not be used. The
dimension is provided as a whole number as
shown in Figure 14. Also, a note should be
added to the drawing stating, "All dimensions
and/or dimensions shown in callouts/notes are in
millimeters unless otherwise noted."

Typical drawing scales for both SI and inchpound measurements are indicated in Table 13.

Note: In circumstances where very small


dimensions are used (e.g., machine details), it is
permissible to use real numbers for millimeter
dimensions. A note should be placed on the
detail regarding this fact.

The Unit Separation toggle under the Unit


Format setting for Dimension Settings can be
used to add a space after the thousands place in
a value (Figure 17). Since toggling this value on
and off for drawing files containing varying
dimension values would be tedious, recommend
toggling Unit Separation "on" for files containing any dimension values over 5 digits and
"off for files containing dimension values with
only 4 or fewer digits.

Meters

For site plans or other drawings drawn to


scales over 1:200, the unit of measure is
typically meters. Where greater accuracy is
required, show dimensions to three decimal
places (Figure 15). A note should be added to
the drawing stating, "All dimensions and/or
dimensions shown in callouts/notes are in
meters unless otherwise noted."

Note: The automatic dimensioning features of


AutoCAD do not allow users to replace commas
with spaces in dimension text. The dimension
text will presently have to be edited to provide
the spacing required by ASTME 621-94 (ASTM
1999).
Dual units
To avoid confusion, dual units (both inchpound and metric) should not be used. As stated
in Construction Metrication Council (1998), use

32

of dual units "increases dimensioning time,


doubles the chance for errors, makes drawings
more confusing, and only postpones the (metric)
learning process."
Exceptions to this include certain "standard
building designs" where dual dimensions ensure
that the design can be used in either SI or inchpound projects and in situations where
products/components used in an SI project are
available only as inch-pound products.

The types of information represented by


individual levels/layers can be grouped into two
primary types: model-specific information and
sheet-specific information (Figure 19).

Model-specific information represents the


physical form of a site, a building, or objects

composing a building. This information is


often shared between drawings. Examples
include walls, doors, light fixtures, and room
numbers. Model-specific information may
be either literal (e.g., walls) or symbolic
(e.g., electrical outlets).

SHEET INFORMATION

Chapter 4

Level/Layer Assignments

Sheet-specific information may include


notes, annotative symbols, and titles. This
type of information is usually not shared
between drawings.

To use and manipulate model-specific and


sheet-specific information effectively, every
level/layer must be defined (standardized) by its
name and its use.
Level/layer naming convention
The reuse, not duplication, of graphic
information reduces drawing time and improves
project coordination. The level/layer is the basic
tool used in CADD for managing graphic
information. The levels/layers defined within
these standards are based on the recommendations set forth in "AIA CAD Layer Guidelines"
(AIA2001).
Level/layer names consist of a two-character
Discipline Designator (e.g., "A-" for
Architectural, "M-" for Mechanical), followed by
a four-character Major Group (e.g., "DOOR" for
Doors, "LITE" for Lighting Fixtures), followed
by four-character Minor Group (e.g., A-WALLFULL-EXTR for exterior full height walls versus
A-WALL-FULL-INTR for interior full height
walls) (Figure 20).

Figure 20. Level/layer naming format

ISO format
ISO 13567-2 (ISO 1998) presents an
international method for level/layer naming
(Figure 21). This method consists of 10
mandatory alphanumeric characters, followed by
10 optional alphanumeric characters. The first
two-character field, Agent Responsible,
Chapter 4

Level/Layer Assignments

correlates to the AIA's Discipline Designator.


The following six-character field, Element, can
map to a shortened version of the AIA's Major
and Minor Groups (e.g., DOOR-FULL becomes
DOORFU, DOOR-PRHT becomes DOORPR).
The final two-character field in the mandatory
level/layer name, Presentation, designates
whether the level/layer information is Model
information (i.e., model-specific information) or
Page/Paper information (i.e., sheet-specific
information). Appendix A gives a corresponding
ISO Format level/layer name for each AIA
Format level/layer name.

Model Files
As mentioned in Chapter 2, model files
represent full-size drawings of building elements,
systems, or information (e.g., the mechanical
HVAC system, the architectural floor plan,
details, sections) and sheet files represent final
plotted sheets. Model files are used as
components in creating plotted sheet files. The
information contained within a model file for a
discipline may be referenced by other disciplines
to create the particular model files or sheet files
for that discipline.
A model file can be considered a "work in
progress." For instance, a mechanical engineer
may reference the architect's floor plan model
file to begin development of the HVAC
ductwork layout model file. Meanwhile, the
architect can continue developing the floor plan
to meet new requirements. Any changes to the
floor plan would be immediately accessible to
the mechanical engineer. The viewing of realtime updates eliminates a great deal of frustration
for other disciplines because it allows for
on-the-spot rather than after-the-fact
modifications.

These levels/layers should only be used
when an Existing/Demolition model file is being
created (see Chapter 2, "Model File naming
convention"). For instance, the architect or
engineer will sometimes have existing as-built
model files, such as Site Plans and Floor Plans
from a previous project. A copy of the as-built
file will be made for use in the current project.
This copy is renamed to be the Existing/
Demolition Plan model file for that discipline. In
order to distinguish items to be demolished from
existing items that will remain, those items
should be moved to the Demolition levels/layers
(if the demolition is not phased, all items should
be moved to the **STAT-DEMO-PHSl level/
layer). When the Existing/Demolition Plan
model file is referenced into a new file to create
the New construction items, the Demolition
levels/layers would be turned off.

Chapter 4

Level/Layer Assignments

M/5

Border sheets
As mentioned before, a model file contains
information that can be referenced by other
disciplines to create other model files or final
sheet files. A border sheet model file contains
border sheet linework, the title block, and
project-specific symbols and text. Typically,
each discipline will use the same border sheet
and fill in sheet-specific information within the
title block or revision block prior to printing the
final sheet file (e.g., sheet number, designer
names).
Reference files (XREFs)
Reference files (external references or
XREFs) enable designers to share drawing
information electronically, eliminating the need
to exchange hard copy drawings between the
design disciplines. With the use of reference
files, the structural engineer need not wait for the
architect to complete the architectural floor plans
before beginning the structural framing plan
model file. Nor does the engineer have to redraw
the architect's structural walls on the structural
framing plan model file.
37

G/2

Referencing electronic drawing information


makes any future changes made by the architect
apparent to the structural designer. This
real-time access to the work of others ensures
accuracy and consistency within a set of
drawings and helps promote concurrent design
efforts. No longer does one discipline have to
wait until another discipline is nearly finished
before they begin their drawings.
The use of reference files is a key component
in the successful use of the level/layer
assignments. To create either a model file or a
final sheet file, multiple referenced model files
may be required. Figure 23 shows how a simple
Plumbing Piping Plan model file is developed
using levels/layers referenced from the Enlarged
Floor Plan model file. These referenced
levels/layers show the current locations of walls,
toilets, and sinks placed by the architect. The
engineer uses this information to design the
piping system required to service the plumbing
fixtures. The architectural floor plan would then
be detached and the Plumbing Piping Plan would
be saved as a separate model file.

Sheet Files
Sheet files are the final project sheets that
are ready to be plotted. A sheet file is an
assembly of referenced model files plus
additional sheet-specific information (e.g., north
arrows, scales, section cuts, title block
information).

The user opens the sheet file type from Appendix
B that is appropriate to his/her discipline then
references existing model files.
As an example, in order to create a final
Plumbing Plan sheet file (Figure 25), the engineer would first open/create a new sheet file.

Figure 25. Using multiple referenced model files to build a sheet file without redundant effort
The engineer would reference various model
files, such as the Architectural Floor Plan and the
Plumbing Piping Plan. The engineer would have
to "turn off" levels/layers within each referenced
model file to achieve the desired sheet file. Then
the Border Sheet model file would be referenced
and scaled up to fit around the other referenced
model files. Finally, the ten sheet file levels/
layers such as P-ANNO-TEXT would be used to
fill in sheet-specific information (e.g., sheet
number, designer name). Once the final sheet
file is achieved, the resulting file is saved (with
all reference files attached).

5 Standard Symbology
Introduction
A "cell" in MicroStation and a "block" in
AutoCAD are groups of graphical elements that
can be manipulated as a single entity. Examples
of typical cells/blocks are windows, doors,
graphic scale keys, furniture, etc. The use of
such symbology enhances CADD productivity
and provides an excellent opportunity for CADD
standardization.

Electronic Version of the


Symbology/Elements
Deliverables
Within the electronic deliverables available
as part of the A/E/C CADD Standard, the
following symbology is provided (Figure 26):

MicroStation cells contained in cell libraries


(.eel) and custom line styles contained in
resource files (.rsc).
AutoCAD blocks, each in an individual
drawing (.dwg) file, patterns in a pattern
library file (.pat), multilines in a multiline
library file (.mln), and custom line styles in a
line type library file (.lin).

Line styles
Line style definitions determine the
particular dash-dot sequence and relative length

Chapter 5

Standard Symbology

of dashes, blank spaces, and the characteristics of


any included text or shapes. Working with line
styles provides a means of distinguishing the
purpose of one line from another.
AutoCAD and MicroStation both provide a
set of standard line styles, as well as allowing the
user to define custom line styles. In AutoCAD
these custom line styles are defined in a line type
library file (.lin) and a multiline library file
(.mln). In MicroStation, custom line styles are
contained in resource files (.rsc) (see Chapter 3
"Line Types/Styles" for more information.
Note: Custom line styles do not readily translate
between systems; therefore users should
anticipate that translated custom line styles may
revert into their primitive graphics.

Tabulated Version of the


Sym bology/Elements
Graphical presentations of the entire
symbology library are shown in Appendix D
"A/E/C CADD Symbology."
The symbology library contains four types of
elements: Lines, Patterns, Symbols, and Objects.
Lines are defined as a graphical representation of
linear drawing features (e.g., utility lines, fence
lines, contours). Patterns are defined as repeated
drawing elements (e.g., lines, dots, circles)
within a defined area. Symbols are defined as
MicroStation cells or AutoCAD blocks that are

representative of objects (e.g., electrical outlets,


smoke detectors). Objects are defined as
MicroStation cells or AutoCAD blocks that
retain their actual size no matter the scale of the
drawing (e.g., 30- by 50-in. desk, 3'-0" door).
Examples of the four element types are
shown in Figures 27-30 and include the
following information:

Name - The name of the line type, pattern,


symbol, or object. This is the name used
when accessing the element with AutoCAD
or MicroStation.

6 A/E/C CADD Standard


Implementation Tools
CADD users throughout the DoD have
indicated a need for customized shortcuts or
utilities to facilitate efficient production of
architectural and engineering CADD documents. Since the distribution of Release 1.4 of
the A/E/C CADD Standard, users have been
requesting tools to implement this detailed
standard.
To meet this demand, the CADD/GIS
Technology Center has developed applications
for both AutoCAD and MicroStation that help
in implementing the CADD Standard (i.e., the
user will rarely have to refer to the standard
document when developing CADD files).
The MicroStation-based tool (called
Workspace) is distributed in three components:
the Workspace generator, the Workspace itself,
and a standard compliance checker. The
generator creates the workspace tools (palettes,
icons, etc.) using a Microsoft Access database
that contains all the information within the
model file tables in the CADD Standard. Using
a "generator" gives system administrators the
ability to edit the Access database and rerun the
generator to create a Workspace that meets sitespecific needs. The Workspace (Figure 31)
allows the user to select the type of model or
sheet file he/she wants to create (e.g.,
Architectural Floor Plan), and a palette of the
various items that can be placed in that type of
file is generated (e.g., doors, windows). The
user then selects the specific type of item
required (e.g., full height doors, partial height
44

doors, door symbols) and the workspace sets the


proper level settings (e.g., level number, color,
line weight, line style).
The final part of the workspace is the
checker (Figure 32). The checker can evaluate
individual model files to determine if they are in
compliance with the A/E/C CADD Standard.
The checker records which elements are not in
compliance and can locate those elements for
the user within the file.
The AutoCAD counterpart to the
MicroStation A/E/C Workspace is also
available. Using the same Access database as
the MicroStation version, the AutoCAD A/E/C
Workspace also assists the user in setting the
correct drawing layer properties (Figure 33).
The symbology in the A/E/C CADD Standard is
also available for placement.
The Coast Guard is also adapting their
CE-CADD software, which runs in AutoCAD,
to follow the A/E/C CADD Standard. This
product will be completed in the latter half of
FY2001.
Further information on these implementation tools can be obtained from the CADD/GIS
Technology Center web site at
http://tsc. wes. army. mil.

14. ABSTRACT

The "A/E/C CADD Standard Manual" has been developed by the CADD/GIS Technology Center (CGTC) to reduce redundant
CADD standardization efforts within the Army, Navy, and Air Force. The manual is part of an initiative to consolidate existing CADD
drafting standards and to develop data standards that address the entire life-cycle of facilities within the Department of Defense
Tri-Service.
The CADD drafting standards addressed in the "A/E/C CADD Standard Manual" include presentation graphics, level/layer
assignments, metric/English scales, electronic file naming, and standard symbology. As the manual evolves, it will also include
nongraphic database standards that address issues such as cost engineering and specification generation. The CGTC's primary goal is to
develop a CADD standard that is generic enough to operate under various CADD software packages (such as Intergraph's MicroStation
and Autodesk's AutoCAD) and incorporate existing industry standards when possible.
