ACI color drawing
« on: February 07, 2013, 10:11:45 AM »

Started creating a drawing to print out to visually see what a .ctb plotstyle looked like for the ACI colors, and still needs some cleaning up but thought some people could maybe modify it to suit their needs.



I copied parts from ColorWheel drawing Autodesk put out so some things on layers that do not make since but could add table with lineweights and annotate different lineweights your company use.


The drawing is attached

Thanks, Jeff.

We used to use one that provided Standard color, and true color numbers, pen weight (it was for CTB) / % screen, and also had some lines/hatch as sample... I'll have to see if I can find the source DWG. Snippet of PDF attached:

Renderman,

That one does look much nicer and would be great to throw in the toolbox.

I'll see if I can track it (the DWG) down... Will post back when I find/recreate.  :lol:

It's funny you should ask... When recreating this (I couldn't locate the source DWG from 2008, when we deployed LDC 2009), I had already added that:

Happy to help... I usually print a PDF of each plot style used, and a have small LISP routine to open the PDF based on the Layout Objects current Plot Style. Very handy when switching between legacy, current, and client standards.

I'll post that next week when I'm back at my computer.

Could you post the associated .ctb file, presumably "WM_STD-02R.ctb"?
