How It Works

It is important to note that external references (X – Refs) must be bound within each DWG file in order for us to apply CAD File Management to the files.

  • We review any available table of contents to ensure that everything is included in the submission.
  • We add the Discipline, Drawing Number, Title, Issue Date and Floor* to each CAD “DWG” File. * when Document ID is active
  • Files are organized in the correct order according to the table of contents.
  • We inform the submitter of any issues prior to publishing and make any necessary corrections before publishing. After publishing the files, we send a file update message to selected project team members to notify them of the update.
  • We update the master conformed set folder of CAD Files and maintain an updated version history.
