WHAT ARE CAD STANDARDS?
CAD standards help optimize the creation and delivery of CAD drawings made by designers, architects and other engineers. They can be implemented in the working process of all design and engineering professions, such as architecture, construction, land surveying, installations in buildings, etc.
By enabling a more efficient use of CAD software, your company will be a better candidate against the competition!
GENERAL PURPOSE OF CAD STANDARDS
CAD standards strive to implement the next systematizations into the workflow process:

BENEFITS OF CAD STANDARDS
CAD standards bring benefits to all clients involved in the project: project designers (software users), company management and contractors / investors.
BASIC Vs. STANDARDIZED DRAFTING in AutoCAD
We’ve tested how much time we spent on drawing the same floor plan of a building in AutoCAD® software using a classical approach and just basic knowledge or using CAD standards. We’ve divided drawing process into phases where we thought that more organized, automated and standardized approach would speed up our process. Those phases were divided into: Drawing template, Dynamic blocks with attributes, Block libraries, Extract data and Plotting. The time results were as followed:
The time factor difference could in practice reflect in the following situations:
