CADD Standards and MicroStation Drafting Files
The City of San Diego has approved this set of Computer Aided Design & Drafting (CADD) Standards to be used as a minimum in creating all digital drawings for City Capital Improvement Projects. All CADD users, both City staff and consultants, who are producing CADD drawings, must use these standards for the submittal of CADD drawings at the City. Individual Departments or Divisions may have additional requirements for preparing and submitting CADD drawings. For convenience, certain Department/Division requirements are included later on this page.
These standards are to be used with Bentley Systems' MicroStation V8 product. All CADD drawings submitted to the City oshall be in native MicroStation V8 format. It is not intended that drawings be converted to V8 from other CADD software or formats. If you have any questions about using this standard please contact the CADD Coordinator of the Division or Department.
