ERDC/ITL TR-19-6 A/E/C Graphics Standard, Release 2.1  


The A/E/C Graphics Standard has been developed by the CAD/BIM Technology Center to document how proper hand-drafting practices can be achieved in Building Information Modeling (BIM), Civil Information Modeling (CIM), and Computer-Aided Design (CAD). It is through the collection and documentation of these practices that consistent models and drawings shall be achieved throughout the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), as well as other federal agencies. In the collection of these practices, various historical USACE District drafting manuals were consulted and compared against practices contained in various industry and national standards. The documentation of these practices will help to achieve both clear and aesthetically pleasing construction documents.
