AEC (Architecture Engineering and Construction) standards[

CAD layer standards

Most common: BS-1192, which relies heavily on the Code of Procedure for the Construction Industry AIA Cad Layer Guidelines, 2nd edition (1997), has a great usage in the USA; ISO 13567-1/3, International standard, common in Northern Europe; AEC (UK), an adaptation of BS-1192 based on Uniclass. A/E/C CAD Standard, Tri-service (USACE/Air Force/NAVFAC) CAD standard created/maintained by [1] the CAD/BIM Technology Center for Facilities, Infrastructure, and Environment..] SIA 2014 (1996), Swiss standard for engineers and architects, based on ISO 13567. NORM A 6240-4 (2012), Austrian standard for digital documentation in technical drawings, based on ISO 13567.

Samples of standardised layers: A-B374--E- (ISO13567: agent Architect, element Roof window in SfB, presentation graphic element); A-37420-T2N01B113B23pro (ISO13567: agent Architect, element Roof Window in SfB, presentation Text#2, New part, floor 01, block B1, phase 1, projection 3D, scale 1:5(B), work package 23 and user definition "pro"); A-G25---D-R (ISO13567: agent Architect, element wall in Uniclass, presentation dimensions, status Existing to be removed); A-G251-G-WallExtl-Fwd (AEC(UK): agent Architect, element External Wall in Uniclass, presentation graphic element, user definition "WallExtl" and view Forward); A210_M_ExtWall (BS1192: agent Architect, element External Wall in SfB, presentation model, user definition "ExtWall"); A-E04---E- (ISO13567 SIA 2014: agent Architect, element Stair in SIA classification, presentation graphic element); A-WALL-FULL (AIA: agent Architect, element Wall, Full height).

Thickness for pens and plot: 0,13 mm Gray, 0,18 mm Red, 0,25 mm White, 0,35 mm Yellow, 0,50 mm Magenta, 0,70 mm Blue, 1,00 mm Green. In AutoCAD usually parts to be printed in black are drawn in 1 to 7 basic colors. Color layer: Green-Center, Magenta-Measure of length and BlueHidden.
