    I like that you two put a small manual together and see that there some different in style. I feel I'm new at autocad and trying to some on my own at home. Have some standards to reveiw will help be a better drafter. Can not wait for the updates down the road. Thank you both for taking the time to do it.

    Good stuff guys. I have actually used ideas that I got from your manuals while creating mine. Mine is going to be a little more in depth because we use a 3rd party duct drafting software and we do a lot of Army Corp jobs so I want to "duplicate" a lot of the standards they use. I'll post as soon I can get a little further along.

    Hope this thread keeps going.

    This one is less CAD specific, and more of a drafting/engineering standard that covers a broader range, but I found it to be interesting and useful. My old job had to follow it for doing a project for NASA.

    We initially didn't know about the requirements, (thanks to a sales team that didn't care, and just enjoyed commission, figuring we'd handle all that) and I just sent them our normal drawing sets, and LET ME TELL YOU.. the redlined prints we got back were staggering. I'd never had a client tell me my notes were in the wrong place?!, and they drew new titleblocks all over several pages and required us to use new naming conventions and all sorts of stuff.

    It was two resubmissions before they even started looking at the design I'd come-up with:
