    Default Civil Standards

    I work for a small Civil Engineering and am starting to set up drafting standards. I would appreciate any help or sugestions on where to start.

    Create a template (.dwt) with all your stuff in it; layers, styles, etc. Also create your border/t-block and have that in there in a layout as your standard sheet. You may even create separate layouts for your respective sheets with viewport layering set up properly.

    The first thing to do is to check with the public entities in your business area, and see what standards they may require. Pretty much everything you do will need to pass through their hands for review.

    The American Public Works Association, (APWA), has been working on a set of standards for layers, and standard symbols. Many municipalities and counties have adopted the draft standards, which they have available online.

    Adding on to what has already been stated, it is important that you specify that the template you have created is used whenever a new drawing is started. This is done by specifying the Template Settings on the Files tab of the Options dialog box. That way, each new drawing will have the standard layers already defined.

    Additionally, if these items have been purged from a specific drawing, they can always be brought back by simply inserting this template into a drawing again. Note, however, that if changes have been made to layer colors and linetypes, simply inserting the template will not restore them to the original defined settings.
