RE: How do you sign DWG files?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Thanks for your standard illuminating reply.

Arizona makes specific reference to preliminary drawings. As long as such
drawings and documents are noted as PRELIMINARY, NOT FOR CONSTRUCTION no
signature is necessary.

As far as California goes, a strict interpretation of the staffers ruling
would make risky the electronic distribution of DWG files. The only way to
legitimately "sign" such a document would, perforce, require that the
document be locked in some way to prevent the receiving party from making
changes. Such technology is available for use in AutoCAD but is not
particularly cheap.

de Toqueville warned us of the rise of the bureaucracy 150 years ago. To bad
no one listened.
