Cad components

Abstract: CAD Components is a Swedish research and development project, which was finished 1994. It has resulted in a recommendation for how suppliers and other companies shall formalise the digital description of their products. Instead of using CAD system drawings to distribute components the CAD Components are defined in a neutral ASCII file. The components can have both graphics and alphanumeric information. In addition to a 30 description there are isometric 20 views fined to store a number of levels of detailing, to be used in different drawing scales. To make it possible to use components from the early design phase all the way to the use of the completed building, the components can be easily replaced by more precise supplier specific versions. For this reason each class of components has to have definition points and default rotation. The classification of the CAD Components is based upon the Swedish BSAB system.
