||CAD Components is a Swedish research and development project, which wasfinished 1994. It has resulted in a recommendation for how suppliers and othercompanies shall formalise the digital description of their products. Instead ofusing CAD system drawings to distribute components the CAD Components aredefined in a neutral ASCII file. The components can have both graphics andalphanumeric information. In addition to a 30 description there are isometric 20views fined to store a number of levels of detailing, to be used in differentdrawing scales. To make it possible to use components from the early designphase all the way to the use of the completed building, the components can beeasily replaced by more precise supplier specific versions. For this reason eachclass of components has to have definition points and default rotation. Theclassification of the CAD Components is based upon the Swedish BSAB system.
