CAD Guidelines and StandardsTable of ContentsBritish ColumbiaMinistry of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’ ServicesShared Services BCReal Property DivisionCAD STANDARDSReal Property Division (RPD), Ministry of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’Services , Shared Service BC of the Province of British Columbia; ComputerAided Drafting (CAD) Standards are an integral component in the overall use andreuse of CAD files. Efficiencies occur to both RPD and future Consultant workwhen these standards are adhered to and are in the best interest and benefit ofall parties to comply with these standards.Efforts have been invested to make these standards as simplified as possible,giving liberties to the user and yet still provide RPD a critical means ofstandardisation which meets future archival values. These standards have beendeveloped and modeled after the Public Works and Government ServicesCanada (PWGSC) Cad Standards. If during project work certain standards forlayer naming convention etc. are required additional information and standardscan be obtained from the RPD Drawing Technologist.While striving to maintain the consistency necessary for life cycle maintainability,the RPD (Shared Services) CAD Standards are to be considered a dynamicdocument from which increased experience, technological advancement, andindustry wide standardization will provide future direction.Shared Services RPD CAD Standards RevE.docxFeb 04, 2014 Original Release March 2008Page 6 of 49

CAD Guidelines and StandardsQuality Assurance of CAD DataBritish ColumbiaMinistry of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’ ServicesShared Services BCReal Property Division3. Quality Assurance of CAD DataRPD (Shared Services) conducts a Quality Control Assessment of all deliveredCAD data files and printed drawing plans. This includes but is not limited to;drawing content, Title Block layout and font usage continuity throughout adrawing set and adherence to this CAD Standard Document.All hardcopy drawings or PDF submissions must match the submitted AutoCADfiles and be completed to the satisfaction of the RPD representative.Note that the content of the digital CAD data file is just as important as theprinted content and no drawing will be accepted as final until all issues areresolved. Delivered work that fails to meet any requirement in any of these areaswill result in the work being deemed unacceptable. The Consultant/DraftingService will be required to correct the problem(s) at their cost. Furthermore, RPDwill exercise its option to withhold payment of the contracted work as set out inthe contract terms until the work is made right. Alternatively, RPD may, if theConsultant/Drafting Service refuses to correct the problem, make the correctionsto the CAD data files and printed drawing plans and deduct the cost thereof fromthe Consultant/Drafting Service's fee. The Consultant/Drafting Service grants toRPD an irrevocable license to make such corrections and use the corrected CADdata files and printed drawing plans as it sees fit. Furthermore, RPD reserves theright to make use of the printed drawing plans resulting from the CAD data fileswith no obligation for payment until the CAD data files are corrected.3.1. Digital File ReviewThe following items will be reviewed to assure adherence to the CAD Standards.In all AutoCAD 2004 versions and later the AutoCAD Standards Checker will beused. On all other drawings done using previous versions of AutoCAD 2004 thefollowing will be checked manuallyCOLOUR ASSIGNMENTRPD Colour/Line Weight assignment must be used.LAYER STANDARDa) Only Standard Layer Names and/or RPD Layer names must be used.b) Entities must be on correct layers.TEXTSTYLE STANDARDOnly Standard AutoCAD SHX fonts or TTF fonts can be used.LINETYPE STANDARDa) Only Standard AutoCAD and/or RPD linetypes can be used.b) Linetype display variables must be used correctlyShared Services RPD CAD Standards RevE.docxFeb 04, 2014 Original Release March 2008Page 7 of 49

Drawing File FormatRPD requires all files to be generated with Microsoft Windows OperatingSystems. The CAD drawing format required for drawings is the AutoCAD nativeformat DWG file, Release 2000 to 2004. Drawing files submitted in Adobe PDF,Autodesk DWF or any other simplified formats is unacceptable. Any drawing filescreated in a foreign CAD program and converted to DWG must be fullycompatible with AutoCAD release 2004. Any problems arising from documentincompatibility will be the Consultant/Drafting Service responsibility.3.2.1. External references (XREF)The use of the external references (xrefs) will be conditionally authorized whenused in conjunction with the "Sheet Set Manager" to support the transmission ofdrawing files in a compressed format.In all the other cases, external references must be converted into blocks (Do notBIND XREFs, instead use BIND INSERT). In no circumstance shall a drawingcontain referenced symbols; they must be inserted as blocks.3.2.2. Raster imagesWhen separate raster images are included in a drawing, they must be positionedcorrectly. The raster images must be provided with the drawing along with anyspecific instructions needed to position them. (Coordinate, rotation, scaling)In the case of orthophotos attached to a drawing, a TFW file must be provided.Shared Services RPD CAD Standards RevE.docxFeb 04, 2014 Original Release March 2008Page 8 of 49

Vertical productsWhere AutoCAD objects are used in vertical products such as AutodeskArchitectural Desktop, Autodesk Building Systems, Autodesk Map or AutodeskLand Desktop, appropriate 'object enablers' must be provided to view andmanipulate the objects.3.2.4. File submissionSubmission and transfer of drawing files will be through E-mail where possible. Ifusing Windows file compression (ZIP) to assist with file transfer the fileextension must be changed as provincial servers will strip out any zip files i.e.:Change Draw.Zip to Draw.Tif. Where file size exceeds the limit of E-mail, or ifthe above submission process is not available, compact disks (CD's) may bedelivered to the designated contact person.When using email for the drawings please provide the following information: Project LocationProject NameRPD Project NumberFile Name(s)RPD Building NumberShared Services RPD CAD Standards RevE.docxFeb 04, 2014 Original Release March 2008Page 9 of 49
