BAD CAD - Beyond the Standards 

There are many areas that fall outside of CAD Standards proper that you may have to keep track of.  Here is my list of what you may need to keep a sharp eye on...   

•Consistent Presentation
•Detail Sheet Layout and presentation
•Level of Detail that is used in Construction Docs
•Title Block text, abbreviations and wording
•Graphic element locations (Key map, North Arrow, Graphic Scale)
•Dates and Names
•Title of the Submittal (Plan Check, Client Review)
•Cross Reference numbers are correct
•Legibility of the drawings
•Nomenclature - callouts
•Project Title Block presentation and layout
