One source of upsets between clients and contractors is the apparent failure of the contractor to follow an established CAD standard. Many times this occurs because some of the base files provided by the client were created using an old or non-existent CAD standard. Often, contractors add to these older files and include them as part of a submittal. The problem is: How do you verify that only the new work, added by the contractor in the current project, meets the CAD standard when all the older data, which they didn’t add and which doesn’t necessarily follow the current CAD standard, exists in the same file?
Now you can easily verify that any element created after a specific date meets your CAD standards using SpecChecker. SpecChecker can solve this dilemma for MicroStation V8, V8i and V10 design files. Axiom’s CAD standards verification software allows users to accept or reject elements based on the modification date stored in every element in a design file.
