Searching for new CTB File and suggestions


Recommended Posts

I am searching for a CTB file that makes a good variety of line hierarchy. I have recently changed companies and need to set up a new standard for my department. Does anyone have a standard file that they really like and think works well. I am also looking to see if there is a way to print a CTB file that will illustrate all 256 colors and line weights so I can compare.

You could try this online viewer: http://www.xcad.ch/tests/ctbviewer.php


BTW, there's only 255 colours - 0=ByBlock and 256=ByLayer - so they're not "true" colours in themselves.


Concerning our settings: All colours 1 through 9 is set to print as black. The rest is set to Object colour and 0.25mm lineweight. The lineweights for 1-9 are as follows (in order): 0.18, 0.25, 0.35, 0.50, 0.09, 0.13, 0.70, 0.10, 0.13. It really depends on your requirements, we find ours work well for us - but some other consultants like using some of those higher numbered colours set as black as well.
