CADD Resources

The appropriate Standards and Drawings are to be used as part of the Project Documents related to the CUE project and should be used in conjunction with the other Utilities Design Resources. The drawings are expected to be used as presented. When a special drawing is created, it must not conflict with other requirements in the Standards, other City Utilities’ Engineering (CUE) Standard Drawings, or National CADD Standard V5.0 (NCS) guidelines. The Standards Drawings are available in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document File (PDF) and Autodesk review design filed (DWF) format. The CADD Resources are also references in Book 6 CADD Standards CADD8.02 General.

The following is a list of CADD Resources available for download which have been prepared to aid individuals, professionals and companies in adhering to the requirements of the Design Standards Manual; in particular Book 6: CADD Standards. These resources have been created with the intent of minimizing the time and effort necessary to meet the CADD Standards requirements. It is recommended that all project drawings be created utilizing these templates. Using them should expedite the CADD process and help fulfill expected drawing variables and settings. All CAD files provided are in Autodesk 2020 .dwg format. No warranties are extended or granted, either expressed or implied, with respect to the accuracy and/or performance of any materials or resources provided.

Software-Related Files

CUE Civil - Survey and Design — CAD Template used for creation of drawings of existing and proposed items. Examples of drawings created from this template are Topos, Base Drawings, Plan, Plan and Profile, and Cross Section sheets.

CUE General - Sheet Layouts — CAD Template used as a repository of common Sheet Layouts. Common workflow is to use Autodesk Design Center to drag layouts from this template into another AutoCAD drawing. This template shall not be used to create any Plan Production sheets as it does not have all the necessary settings, layers, styles, etc… necessary to satisfy CADD Standards requirements.

CUE Drawing Standards Files — Zipped file which includes DWS versions of DWT Templates. Files are used to run CADD Standards Checks on Plan Production sheet drawings.

CUE C3D 2020 Pipes Catalog — (Due to it’s large size, this file is available by request only.) Zipped file which includes configuration and drawing files for the AutoCAD Civil 3D Part Catalog containing definitions for storm sewer, sanitary sewer, and other modeled pipe networks that can be inserted into a drawing. All Civil 3D Pipe Networks shall be based on, and utilize this Pipes Catalog. If it is not used, the part parameters (pipe sizes, materials, etc…) will not match when the files are transferred from one computer system to another.
