CAD Controversy: CAD Administrator for Crispell-Snyder contributes his view on the CAD standards debate.

By on

Dear Editor,

Expecting users to adhere to CAD standards implies that they are producing a product that is worthy of the extra attention that standardization requires.

Chris Elvin, CAD Administrator Crispell-Snyder, Incorporated

With MicroStation so easily providing line weights, text styles and color utilization, it is amazing how many firms are content with producing one-weight, monochrome drawings with typewriter fonts. Perhaps if we want users to adhere to standards we should be asking ourselves whether we are giving them a standard that they can be proud of.
