Can anybody suggest or refer me to a simplified layer and lineweight standard for preparing AutoCAD drawings for a geotechnical engineering firm? I know that there is an architectural standard for AutoCAD drawing layers, but it is probably way too complicated for our purposes. It has to be simple, because nobody in our office is a draftsman, and I have a heck of a time just trying to get our younger engineers to follow drafting conventions such as not crossing a dimension line, making text size consistent, not exploding dimensions, and my favorite, drawing to true scale. Thank you for your replies
