CAD standards are a bone of contention for every CAD manager. For me, CAD standards are all about a single thing-productivity. It's all about decision making. I don't want you spending time deciding what font to use or what lineweight to draw with. Those tasks don't increase the project's value. I want you to be able to focus on creating drawings that sell ideas to a client or help make manufacturing quicker and easier. You shouldn't need to worry about CAD standards. In this lab, we'll go through the exact steps that I use to create a comprehensive set of tool palettes that deploy our company CAD standards. I'll show you how to deploy your tool palettes on the network, and how to update them from a central file. We'll push as hard as we can into deploying scripts and macros from tool palettes, and cover some of the tips and hacks of tool palettes that you won't find in the help file.
