ABSTRACT: This paper describes the development of a demonstrator library of
parameterised standard CAD Details on the Internet. The library (National Standard
Details Library) has been developed as part of a PII project funded by DETR (UK). The
aim of the project has been to develop a framework for the development of standard CAD
details for specific areas within the construction industry and to develop a prototype
electronic library of parametric details that could be accessible from a number of different
CAD applications. The paper discusses the issues arising from the development of such a
system and the impact it could have on standards and best practice in the development
and use of CAD details.
1 INTRODUCTION
Standard details represent those parts of engineering or architectural drawings that are
often re-used. A number of standard details exist in organizations such as local
authorities, supermarket chains, food outlet chains, and other organizations where
