The layer templates can be accessed through the Drawing Setup Dialog Box. ArchSymb's original layer templates are based on the A.I.A. CAD Layering Guidelines. There is also the a list of the Long and Short format of the A.I.A. CAD Layering Guidelines. The Default layer Template is based on the NCS (National Cad Standards) which is now the same as AIA Long format. The layer templates can be for new, existing, demo or future drawings. Included in all fourĀ of the template groups are Layers for the following categories:

  • Floor Plans
  • Ceiling Plans
  • Roof Plans
  • Site Plans
  • Elevations
  • Sections
  • Details
  • Schedules
  • Sheet Files

All of the symbols are also based on these same layers, making ArchSymb compatible with most standard drawing conventions. The layer templates are saved in ArchSymb's LAT file format, making them simple to modify and edit with the Layer Template Editor.
