    Default CAD CTB Standards

    Hello to all, I was curious if anyone has any Standardized CTB files they are willing to share?

    AutoCAD comes with a variety of CTB files that are pretty standard, something to start with.

    CTB files are based on a company's (or institution's) CAD/plotting standards.
    There are also government CTB cad standards you could get by searching the web, ACOE, DVA, USGC etc, most of those are some sort of AIA/NCS standards.

    The CTB (or STB) is really just an implementation of a set of standards and doesn't mean much without the those standards i.e. mapping color value (or style name) to purpose and plot width/color/tone.
    If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
    Some say beauty is in the eye of the Beholder... perhaps so, but I've only seen the disintegration beam.
    Everyone else being wrong is not the same thing as being right.
