CAD Standards need to address all the info that might be in the template files or that need to be set by the users. The Standard Settings and Styles are defined and documented well enough to let people know what they should be using. By defining these in your standard you assist them to verify what is being used.
Why list these or show them in the standard if they are in the template? If they are already set, then there is no need to show them – right?
I think not. By showing the users what the standard settings, styles and more are defined they can verify that they are using the right ones. There are many times when the file they are using may get changed up. When copying from old files or importing info. So I think that the best way to make sure that everything is set correctly is to show everyone what the setting actually are.
Even the most basic things like Document Settings need to be documented. Do you use Decimal or Architectural Units? Do you set the Unit round-off?
Do you use Metric files? Are you using true metric? Real metric? Not the fake US translated from Imperial metric? Do you define the linestyle library to use? What about blocks and cel libraries?
There are so many that need to be documented. This will keep everyone on the same page and outline the exact target to be hit with the critical settings inside CAD.
