Engineering Bureau

1. Organization of Digital Files


1.1.
Shared Files
All DES-Engineering Bureau project files shall be located in their
appropriate folder on the shared drive under Q:\Data\.
Keeping files on the shared drive will allow design teams to collaborate more easily on
projects, and will provide access to the files for others within the Bureau when the
original designer is sick or on leave. Files on the shared drive are also backed up daily,
whereas files on individuals hard drives are not and may therefore be lost in the event of
a computer hard drive failure.

1.2.

Directory Structure
The standard directory structure for the
Engineering Bureau shall be as shown on
the left.
The following are descriptions of the
folders:
Design: This folder contains all of the files,
including CADD Drawings that are created
by the Engineers and Admins.
Survey:
This folder contains all of the files, including
CADD Drawings that are created by the
Survey Section.
Docs:
Any documentation that pertains to the
project.
Drawings: All AutoCAD Drawings are
stored in this folder.
Photos: Photos that were taken of the
project.
Scans: Scanned items are located in this
folder
Utilities: Files such as Miss Utility
Transmittals and files from the Utility
Companies.

-1-

CADD Standards

Arlington County Government DES


Engineering Bureau

The directory structure shown above is a minimum standard. Users are encouraged to
further sort files into subfolders that are located within these standard folders. Names of
folders should be logical and descriptive of the contents of the folder. Abbreviated folder
names should be avoided, unless the abbreviation will be universally understood.

In order to maintain a neatly organized file, no additional folders should


be created in the Q:\Data\ directory. Such folders may be deleted.
Additional folders should only be placed within the standard folders
shown above.
1.3.

File Naming Standards

Project files shall be named first with the Work Order # for Surveys and
Acct # for Engineers, and then a description of the file. The following are
some examples of standard file names for CADD drawings:
Table 1.1:

Examples of Standard File Names

File Name

Description of File

(WO#) - 3D.dwg
(WO#) - COGO.dwg
(WO#) - TOPO.dwg
(WO#) - Survey Base.dwg

3D Plan includes all Civil 3D Objects


Cogo Plan includes Property Information.
Topography Plan includes all Field Located features.
Base Plan includes 3D Plan, Cogo Plan and Topo Plan.
(This is the Final product from Surveys)
Cover Sheet.
Existing Conditions Plan.
Demolition Plan.
Proposed Plan.

(Acct#) - Cover.dwg
(Acct#) - XPlan.dwg
(Acct#) - DPlan.dwg
(Acct#) - PPlan.dwg

File names for files that are not shown in the above examples should always be logical
and allow another user to immediately tell what is in the file without opening it.
Abbreviated file names should be avoided, unless the abbreviation will be universally
understood.
Users should avoid adding their name to the file. This is a bad practice and should not
be used. Any files with a users name within the filename will be considered as
temporary files and will be deleted.

1.4.

Archiving Files

Files no longer being used should be moved to the _Archive folder within
the Drawings folder for archiving.

- 16 -

CADD Standards

1.5.

Arlington County Government DES


Engineering Bureau

Previous Versions of CADD Files

Users may wish to keep an archive of previous versions of files for potential later use.

Previous versions of files should be kept in a folder named _Archive that


is within the Drawings folder, and should have the date of the file added
to the file name.
Table 1.2: Example of Standard Previous Version File Name
File Name

Description of File

(Acct#) - PPlan 05-15-10.dwg Previous version of the Proposed Plan, dated 05-15-10.
Note: Use dashes between month-day-year. Slashes cannot be part of a file name in
Windows.

1.6.

Deleting Files

Computer users shall be responsible for their own project files.


Users are expected to keep the folders that they create clean and to delete outdated
material.

Computer users shall not delete files that have been created by others
without first checking with the person who created them.
Every effort shall be made to locate the creator of a file prior to deleting it. The CADD
Standards and Guidelines shall not be used by anyone as a basis to arbitrarily delete
files.

If 95% or more of available server space is used up, the CADD


Administrator shall initiate a unit-wide effort to delete unnecessary files.
The CADD Administrator will send an e-mail to all staff asking them to clean out their
files. When such a notice goes out, Staff should delete all outdated files, and move
personal files off the server and on to their individual hard drive. If 5% of server space
has not been freed by two days after the notification, files may have to be deleted
without the creators consent to maintain the availability of the file server.

Files that are accidentally deleted may be recovered from backup by


contacting the CADD Administrator at x3654.

2. CADD Drawing Setup and Organization


2.1.

CADD Drawing Organization

CADD Drawings shall be set up in a layered manner using XREF files.


This helps to keep files small and manageable, and to prevent accidental changes to
survey base information.

Figure 2.1:
Diagram of XREF layers in a typical drawing

(WO#) COGO.dwg
(WO#) TOPO.dwg

To create a construction drawing file, first insert the underlying layers using the XREF
command.
Note: To do an XREFOVERLAY, select the Overlay radio button when the External
Reference dialog box appears. The reason for doing an overlay is so that if, for
example, you wish to insert the Survey Base information into your layout plan, the Base
file wont be pulled along with it, which would result in a circular reference error.

XREF files should be inserted at the coordinates 0,0,0 using the World
coordinate system.
For more information about coordinate systems, see section 3.5.

2.2.

CADD Drawing Setup (Templates)

Standard template files have been created in order to speed the process
of setting up a drawing.
These files already contain the standard, layers, line types, blocks, dimension styles,
text styles, title block, page setup, and plot styles. They are designed to allow the user
to immediately begin drawing and plotting without having to worry about creating text
and dimension styles and setting up sheets.

To get started, use the NEW command and select one of the following
templates:

3. CADD Drafting
3.1.

Units

Drawings shall be created using Decimal units:


If a standard template was used, this has already been done for you.

Decimal units:

One AutoCAD drawing unit equals One foot.

All dimensions shall be in Decimal units (feet) regardless of how the


drawing was created.
This is already accounted for if the standard template and dimension style are used.
The standard dimension style for decimal drawings includes a measurement scale factor
of 12 to correct the difference in units.
To insert a block that was created in Architectural units into a Decimal drawing, use an
insertion scale of 1/12.
To insert a block that was created in Decimal units into an Architectural drawing, use an
insertion scale of 12.

3.2.

Accuracy

All CADD drawings shall be drawn to be dimensionally accurate, which


means that the same measurement can be obtained by reading a
dimension or scaling the printed drawing.
Using keyboard coordinate entry, as well as commands like OFFSET, and object snaps,
will help to ensure that drawings are dimensionally accurate and precise.
Even though the drawings are supposed to be accurate, it is still important to note to
contractors that written dimensions prevail and that they should not be scaling the
drawings.

3.3.

Dimensions

Dimensions should be drawn with the appropriate standard dimension


style set current.
The dimension style should already be present if a standard drawing template is used.

Table 3.1:
ROW
EOP
Plats

Standard Dimension Styles


Standard dimstyle for Right of Way
Standard dimstyle fro Edge of Pavement
Standard dimstyle for Plats.

-6-

CADD Standards

Arlington County Government DES


Engineering Bureau

The DIMSCALE value, or overall scale for dimension features, should be


set to the scale of the drawing.
See the following table for the correct DIMSCALE value to use:

Table 3.2:

DIMSCALE Values

If the drawing was created in Decimal (1 unit=1 foot) units:


Desired Drawing Scale

DIMSCALE Value

1=100
1=60
1=50
1=40
1=30
1=25
1=20

100
60
50
40
30
25
20

The correct DIMSCALE value is already set in the standard drawing templates.

3.4.

Model Space vs. Paper Space

All CADD line work shall be drawn in Model Space at a scale of 1:1.
Dimensions and labels shall also be in Model Space, with the text sized
appropriately to plot at the correct test style. (see section 6.2).
Title blocks, notes, and details shall be inserted into Paper Space.
A paper space view port can be created in the title block to let the model show through.
The Model Space drawing can then be reduced or enlarged to the appropriate scale by
doing the following:
(1) Double-click in the viewport to make it active.
(2) Type ZOOM (enter) and then the appropriate scale factor (see table 3.3).
(3) Double_click on Model at the bottom of the screen to return to paper space

Scale Factor

1=100
1=60
1=50
1=40
1=30
1=25
1=20
1/16 = 1-0
1/8 = 1-0
3/16 = 1-0
1/4" = 1-0

1/100xp
1/60xp
1/50xp
1/40xp
1/30xp
1/25xp
1/20xp
1/16xp
1/8xp
3/16xp
1/4xp

If the drawing view needs to be rotated, double-click inside the view port and enter the
command DVIEW, then TW for twist. Then specify the angle to rotate the drawing.
This will rotate the drawing view without changing the underlying coordinate system.

3.5.

Coordinate Systems (UCS)

The UCS command allows users to alter the coordinate systems of drawings. The
original coordinate system of a drawing is known as the World coordinate system.

Where practicable, the coordinate system of a drawing should remain set


to World coordinates.
Keeping the coordinate system set to World will ensure that XREFs inserted at the
0,0,0 coordinates appear in the correct place. If it becomes necessary to alter or rotate
the coordinate system of a drawing, please remember to save the new coordinate
system and give it anew name. Always set the coordinate system back to World
before inserting an XREF.

Proposed elements should appear as solid lines, except when they are
underground.
See Appendix A for a chart of line types and the objects they represent.
4.2.

Symbols

See Appendix B for a chart of symbols and the objects they represent.
4.3.

Hatches

See Appendix C for a chart of hatches and the types of materials they
represent.
Complex hatches should be drawn on a layer that is set to color 1 (red),
the thinnest line weight.
4.4.
Layers
See Appendix D for a chart of Layers and the objects they represent.
4.5.

Plot Styles

See Appendix E for a chart of Plot Styles and the objects they represent.

5. Layers
5.1.

Proper Use of Layers

A separate layer should be created for each distinct type of object in a


drawing.
In addition, text and hatches should be on layers that are different from
the objects they are associated with.
The use of separate layers gives the user maximum flexibility to turn them on and off, or
freeze and thaw, thereby making it easier for the user to control the look of their
drawings.

5.2.

Drawing Objects By Layer

All objects shall be drawn with the color, line type, and Plot Style set to
By Layer.
The only exceptions are the Storm lines, Sanitary lines and Water lines because of the
different pipe sizes..

5.3.

Layer Names and Categories

Layers shall be named as shown in the following figure:

5.4.

Layers and XREFs

Layer -XREF should be used for each XREF that is inserted into a
drawing.
5.5.

Layer 0

The layer 0 should only be used when creating blocks (symbols), so that
the blocks will take on the properties of the active layer when they are
inserted into a drawing.
The layer 0 appears in all drawings, and cannot be deleted. The layer 0 also
behaves differently from other layers, because if the layer 0 is used in a block or xref, it
will take on the properties (color, line type, etc) of the layer that the block or xref is
inserted on. For example, a block that has all of its elements drawn on the layer 0 is
inserted on the layer XD-CONC. If XD-CONC is set to the color cyan and DASHED2
line type, the block will become cyan with a DASHED2 line type. If the color associated
with the XD-CONC layer is changed later, the color of the block will change accordingly.

The layer 0 should not be used, except for the above-described


purpose.
See Appendix D for a chart of Layers and the objects they represent.

6. Text
6.1.

Text Style

The standard text style, for construction plans, shall use the TrueType
Font Tahoma.
The standard text style, for plats, shall use the TrueType Font Technic.
Note: For plats, the TrueType font 8Pin Matrix is used for adjacent parcels information.

6.2.

Text Height

The standard text height for all construction drawings shall be 0.1 plotted
inches.
Text sizes less than 0.08 plotted inches are not readable when reduced.
Larger text sizes can be used for labels that require special emphasis.

8. Using Multiple Layout Tabs


8.1.
Using multiple layout tabs is a useful way to include multiple
drawing sheets in one AutoCAD file.
This is especially useful when doing a construction plan, for example, that needs
multiple sheets to cover an area. All of the construction plan sheets can be created in
one file, and then be plotted together without having to open a bunch of other files.
Once you have set up the first layout tab the way you want it, just right-click on the
layout tab and select Move or Copy. Make sure the Create a copy box is checked,
select where you want the new layout tab to be placed, and click OK. An identical
layout is created. You can then change the attribute information, pan the view port to
cover a different area, and zoom the view port in and out.
Layout tabs can also be renamed by right-clicking on the tab and selecting Rename.
The standard name for a layout tab shall be the sheet description (example: Existing
Conditions Plan).
To freeze a layer in one layout tab, but keep it active in other layout tabs, go to the
layout and double-click on the view port to make it active. Then, either open the layer
properties manager and click the Freeze in View Port icon next to the layers you wish
to freeze, or use the LAYFRZ command from the express tools to pick the layers and
freeze them. The layers will then remain active in the other layout tabs.
Freezing and thawing, or turning off and on, layers while working in the model affects all
of the layout tabs in the drawing.

9. Plotting
Standardization of templates, title blocks, printer names, and plot style
tables will make plotting much simpler. The standard settings for plotting
drawings to the Xerox 6279 plotter should appear automatically as
defaults in the plot dialog box.
