AEC (UK) Layer Protocol v4.0 is here!

For all of you asking when the AEC (UK) will release an update incorporating Uniclass 2015… it is now available from the Documents page.

Version 4.0 incorporates Uniclass 2015 into the layer naming conventions, and also adds best practice guidance to help you understand how to implement the various Uniclass tables. We have also included an updated and expanded version of our Table Zz (for non-physical or “CAD” elements). This is expanded from the original AEC (UK) table which has since been made available from the NBS website and includes items requested by our users across the UK.

      • Hi,
        Thanks for the reply to my last question. I have been working on our acad layers based on v4-0-2. My issue is that as an architects practice, we have tried and tested office printing standards that are defined via line colour and therefore line weight. I simply need to add more defined layers for example:-

        A-Ss_25_30_95_26-M-ExternalWindow

        is a defined layer, but that leaves me one colour and line weight to use. I don’t want our planning team individually making their own separate colour and weight decisions for glass, the frame or the cill.

        So can I add in more defined numbers like below to cover these elements?

        A-Ss_25_30_95_27-M-ExternalWindow-Glass
        A-Ss_25_30_95_28-M-ExternalWindow-Frame
        A-Ss_25_30_95_29-M-ExternalWindow-Cill

        Any help would be much appreciated.

        Regards

        Andrew
