    Question Standard line weights and Color Hierarchy

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I am a newbie here in this community. I'm just a beginner in AutoCAD drafting and started only a few months ago. Can someone give me an idea how to use Color hierarchy properly. By the way, I am an aspiring Architect. I am very grateful to see all of your reply.

    Are there no published architectural cad standards in the Philippines similar to the AIA in the United States?

    We use a very simple system using a colour CTB, the 1st seven colours are all set to black and use the ISO pen thickness 1 is thinest 7 thickest think of 0.1 - 0.7, all colours 8 to 256 are set to object colour and a 0.25 line works for us, big fat lines we use plines rather than play with line thickness, example road lines are in one layer and are 100 150 300 600 wide.
