Q1: Are we using paper anymore?
A1: Record drawings are required in full size paper sets.  Elevator manuals and drawings are also required in paper (see Facility Standards, Division 14 – Conveying Equipment).  F&S Capital Project Managers and Campus Clients may also request paper copies based on their own needs.

Q2: What version of AutoCAD is being accepted now?  Why are we never using the most recent version?
A2: 2019 or earlier, necessary because the files need to be compatible with software F&S uses to track data. Updates to these data tracking systems need to be tested and bugs worked out before the next version is considered ready to use, making the AutoCAD version we can use slightly behind the most recent versions available.
