The Linetype Resources in InstantOn
An overview of the NCS and other Linetype resources and tools provided with AutoCAD Civil 3D InstantOn and other Framework products
Reviews Release 7-5 in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018-2012 for NCS 4.0 and NCS 5.0
Updated linetype resources are supplied in the Release 7 InstantOn package download.
A Linetype AddOn is available for Release 6 and below. The update details are listed here.
Important Linetype Details
Example Linetype drawings are provided in the desktop package
NCS linetypes included employ civil units 0.1 height for text not 0.125 by default
Search and replace in the linetype file may easily change this.
Prototype linetypes for single, double, and triple character linetype are provided at the bottom of both NCS 4.0 and NCS 5.0 .LIN files.
Text based Linetypes include references to Existing and Proposed textstyles. You will received linetype load errors if these two textstyles are not present in the drawing or template.
InstantOn templates intentionally do not include linetype references which should be employed in publishing templates whenever possible. Search blog posts on "Linetype" for detailed explanations
Alignment Group Label Styles
Both InstantOn and Jump Kit Style libraries include multiple Alignment Labels Styles that can completely replace many traditional linetypes with either or both text and symbols.
