1. Introduction
1.1.

Summary of amendments to CAD Standards

The following summarises the recent changes to CAD Standards document. Auto-Manager Workflow program has been upgraded to Auto-Manager Meridian 2007 program which the Asset Data Unit utilises for CAD files storage. The definition AMG has been replaced with the new MGA Coordinate System. Asset Data Unit has added a requirement for the consultants to provide an information sheet which includes a drawing transmittal describing documents provided. Asset Data Unit has amended the timeframe for receiving all related Manuals and As-Builts. These are to be provided within two weeks after practical completion has been reached. A new drawing focus has been added for Underground Services. CAD files and all related documents to be provided only on a CD and no longer using the 3.5 floppy disks. A legend must be provided if the drawings received contain any non ADU standard layer names.

1.2.

Background

AutoCAD is used in the maintenance, design and facilities management of buildings and grounds in conjunction with other packages including, AutoCAD Map, MS Access, ARCHIBUS, and Auto Manager Meridian. In this document the requirements for the AS BUILT drawings are outlined to obtain a high quality uniform set of documents that can easily be digitally archived and implemented into the buildings facility management system. All queries relating to the CAD Standards should be directed to the CAD Operator of the Asset Data Unit, Property and Campus Services, The University of Melbourne, Phone: (03) 8344 0937, Fax: (03) 8344 0947.

2. Quick Guide for CAD Draftspersons


This section is a quick guide for draftspersons that edit drawings for the contractor or consultant. It summarises the basic elements that are to be adhered to when submitting the As-Built drawings to the Property and Campus Services. This is not a comprehensive listing but will help in ensuring drawings will be accepted. If drawing files do not meet these basic criteria they will not be accepted. The basic requirements are: The CAD files shall be in AutoCAD 2007 file format or a previous version and have the following conditions met: One drawing unit = one millimetre Use fonts and line type files supplied with standard installation of AutoCAD Plot style table to be supplied. No external references to be used. (all x-refs to be bound) Files shall be purged. There shall be one AutoCAD file per completed drawing (hard copy) identical to the hard copy. Multiple drawings shall not be contained in one AutoCAD file. Drawing entities shall be in model space. Ensure a file information sheet is provided (drawing list), outlining each CAD file number, drawing sheet number and drawing description.

The documentation to be supplied MUST include: BR Number (building request number) as provided by project manager on each title sheet of the drawing. Marked with AS BUILT on each title sheet of the drawing. Marked with correct DATE on each title sheet of the drawing. Marked with correct REVISION Numbers on each title sheet of the drawing.

All computer files shall be provided on a CDROM with hard copy information to the Plan Services Officer of the Asset data unit. Other arrangements can be made with the Plan Services officer if required and can be contacted on (03) 8344 0835.

4. CAD File Format Requirements


4.1. General File Requirements
The consultant/contractor shall ensure that all CAD files conform to the following:

All CAD files are to be recorded on CD for transmittal to the Asset Data Unit in AutoCAD 2007 file format or previous version. There MUST be only one CAD file for each individual drawing; multiple drawings saved to one CAD file will not be accepted. Also one drawing with many CAD files will not be accepted. All files MUST be PURGED prior to being transmitted to the Asset Data Unit. Each CAD file MUST be saved with layer 0 set as the current layer. All CAD files of building floor plans MUST have BASE set to 0, 0, 0 and the floor plans drawn to the same grid coordinates on each CAD file. All entities within the drawing file MUST have the colours and line types set to BYLAYER.

4.2.

Model Space, Layouts and External References

Where the project is too large for the title sheet, the drawing is to be split only for plotting in layout or PAPER SPACE. All CAD drawings MUST be drawn as one continuous and uniform plan in MODEL SPACE. All drawing entities for each drawing are to be contained in one file, without the use of external reference files. If drawings were originally created with external reference files, the AutoCAD BIND command MUST be used to include the external reference file as part of the main file. The BLOCK created by this command shall be EXPLODED. Layer names from external reference drawings shall conform to the layer naming requirements as specified in section 3.3. Any layers that have been inserted to a drawing after an external reference has been bound and exploded MUST be renamed to remove the external reference file name prefix off the layer names. All drawing entities are to be drawn in MODEL SPACE on the CAD files; drawing title sheet information will be accepted. This can include scale bars, north points, general notes.

Asset Data Unit Property and Campus Services

4.3.

Layer Naming

Layer names are to be legible words describing what types of entities are drawn on that layer. Appendix B tables all the standard layer names that shall be used for As-Built drawing files. The consultant/contractor shall endeavour to use these layer names in this table in preference to any other layer names, or MUST provide a legend that clearly defines each layer.

4.4.

Menu Settings

The drawing shall be submitted either with the AutoCAD menu set to the standard acad.mnu file or as supplied by the Asset Data Unit.

4.5.

4.6.

Font Styles

All fonts used in the CAD file MUST be SHX type fonts as supplied by the standard installation of AutoCAD. True type fonts will not be accepted. If text is used to represent an object then the insertion point must be middle center justified.

All elements shall be surveyed in three coordinates (X,Y,Z) using only MGA and AHD. Where available within the campus, a minimum of three benchmarks shall be used and tied to one another to check for any possible variation in the coordinates or RL. Where no guaranteed benchmarks exist in the campus area, the contractor must place at least three control points in the campus area by a qualified surveyor. The coordinates and mapped positions of these control points must be submitted with the final work. The control points must be placed in stable areas where there is little chance of them being destroyed; those areas shall be coordinated with the Asset Data Unit, Property and Campus Services. Contours shall be displayed on all drawings at a suitable contour interval where applicable. Trees of a height of one metre or more shall be surveyed. The position of the tree shall be surveyed as the middle of the trunk, measured at one metre above ground level. All existing features shall be surveyed unless approval in writing is granted by Asset Data Unit, University of Melbourne.
