AIA 256 Color

It there some kind of list for use with this layer standard, such as:
What color (number) is used with which layer
All layers available with this standard
All colors not used by this standard so I can use them how I want to. I
have changed the lineweight of a color I thought I could use for my
own purposes and then found out it was being used by
some other layer numerous times
Maybe it's better not to plot according to color....?

Thanks

Hi Josh

Yes. First you must open Windows Explorer and search in:
Program Files
AutoCad Architect2
Content
Layers
AIA (256) Scale 48
AIA (256) Scale 96
Then you must print these documents and you will find that for each AIA
standard layer there is a lineweight recommended.

Unfortunately these settings apply only in the Imperial system. I tried to
convert them to the metric system but the result was not very convincing.

Pedro:

The AIA files you mentioned show line weights and colors
but not, not layers. As for metric, what difference does it make. The
AIA48 settings would work for the metric scale eqiuvalent to our 1/4"=1'-0"
scale.
