ANSI STANDARDS FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING DRAWINGS PLANS?

ANSI STANDARDS FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING DRAWINGS PLANS?

ANSI STANDARDS FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING DRAWINGS PLANS?

(OP)
anyone knows if there is any standards or normative for civil engineering drawing plans? (ex: structural, architectural, civil drawings)

I heard the ANSI STANDARDS are used for drafting Standards Manual, but i don't know if those are useful for civil engineering drawing. (ex: ASME/ANSI Y14.1M, ASME/ANSI Y14.2M, ASME/ANSI Y14.3M, ASME/ANSI Y14.5M, ASME/ANSI Y14.100.

Please I need your help.

Thank you.

RE: ANSI STANDARDS FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING DRAWINGS PLANS?

You mean the National Cad Standards? or the National Engineering Handbook Link standards? or the USACE A/E/C Cad Standards?
Your company should already have drafting standards that are geared specifically for illustrating plans according to your discipline. Does everyone in your outfit do their own thing and you're looking for a little order & consistency?

(OP)
thank you sacpeEengineer, and yes, I´m looking for an order and also an international normative, specially in drawing plans.

Basically what i´m looking for is that all the drawing plans we do (electrical, civil, architecture and structural plans), anyone can read it worldwide.

An engineer from EEUU recommended me the ANSI (American National Standards Institute), they manage almost all the standards manuals and normative, but I know that only works for EEUU, so I need to Know all the standards for drawing useful for Europe and Asia.

by the way thank you so much for your answer.

RE: ANSI STANDARDS FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING DRAWINGS PLANS?

We use ANSI Y14.100
