Updated: Standard Text Height in Construction Drawings …

10/04/2005 · From Michael A. Gilroy: For the last 25 years, 3/32" text height has been the preferred by every architectural office I’ve worked with. In all the "drawing standards" developed, it always came down to 3/32" text was more compact and reduced the visual clutter of the drawings. A side-effect was tighter sheets that fit on the next size down paper size.

Standard font height and type for engineering drawing …

18/10/2012 · Prior to CAD, our hand lettering standard was 1/8″ text height to remain legible for half-size sets. After CAD was introduced, since the computer-generated, plotted output provided more clarity, we reduced our text height standard to 3/32″ to gain more real-estate in our drawings, which reduced sheet count in the sets, thereby passing more savings to our clients.

AutoCAD Drawing Standards

All drawings are to have a standard text height of 2.5mm, 3.5mm, 5.0mm and 7.0mm and a width no greater than 1 at a scale of 1:1. For example a drawing drawn at 1:100 would have a text height (in Model Space) of 250mm, and the height of the text in Paper Space would be 2.5mm. A text height no less than 1.8mm should be used.
