Oh, I don’t doubt that for one minute…


I must confess, when we get our hands on a set of drawings from another engineering

Firm, I LOVE to go through it and see if there are things we can learn or detail better…



This is FAR different from importing someone’s CAD file and including it in my set.


At least in my scenario, I have to spend my time and money making changes or improvements to my details

That I have already spent $$$$$ developing….



The other guy just copies a file.

Although I agree on the subject of emailing *.dwg files (I don't email those willy-nilly either) - just because someone DOESN'T have a copy of your *.dwg files DOESN'T mean they aren't copying the details from your drawings.
