CAD Standards – Discipline codes

File names will need to be coded by discipline. I have mentioned splitting things out by discipline and so you will need to define how to do that.   Some do it with abbreviations like Arch, Mech, Struct, etc.  You can also shorten them to just letters.

Here is a quick list – based on the NCS.
