RE: Autocad Layering Standards for Structural Engineering

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mark,
I went to the site, but was not able to download the proposed standards.
Layer standards appear to have been created for Microstation but the
download link for Autocad does not work at this time.
If you have the proposed layer standards for structural, would you please
send me a copy so that I can review them.
Thanks
Dennis
