  • OOTB Checker selectionOOTB Checker review per CAD standardsWhat can we use?*

  • Custom Checks NeededAfter selecting the OOTB checks we want to use, determine what custom checks need to be created to fill the gaps in checking the things we want to checkCreate the custom checksSome Examples;*

  • Profile CreationCreate profiles for modeling and drafting files with the combination of OOTB and custom coded checks*
