U.S. Coast Guard Naval Engineering Drawing Templates


The drawing template files, with all mandatory and conditional blocks, have been developed in AutoCAD™ format. The templates are intended to provide a consistent drawing format for all naval engineering drawings developed for all U.S. Coast Guard cutters and boats. They are intended to serve as a tool for engineers and draftsmen tasked with new drawing creation. Detailed requirements with regards to drawing format and standards can be found in the U.S.C.G. Naval Engineering Computer Aided Design Standards (COMDTINST M9085.1 series). To download the manual as an Adobe .pdf file, click here.

The templates below are listed by sheet size. There are two files for each template size. To download an AutoCAD™ template, double-click on the template name to open the WinZip folder. Then drag and drop the drawing template from the WinZip folder to your Desktop folder. As a template, each time you open the file a new and separate .dwg file is generated and the template remains intact and unchanged. From the dialogue box, you may also select a folder on your workstation to save to, the default is your desktop. Leave the save as file type "AutoCAD drawing".
