I have inherited a set of templates for creating drawings for solar panel projects. Each set is about 12 pages and only 2-4 pages are different between projects. Several pages are actually just embedded PDF cutsheets of the equipment used.
The person that created the template has everything in one drawing - all of the PDF, several different versions of one line and three line drawings that might be used, blocks of language, etc are all scattered about the model space.
There are layouts for each page that have a view port zoomed into the content for that page.
is this a standard practice? I feel like it's a disorganized mess and am looking for a better way to do it. My thought was to split things out into individual drawings, and used sheet sets or a template to reference everything.
is using a combination of sheet sets and a template for new projects the way to go here?
Should I have an individual drawing for each PDF? Or maybe a cut sheet drawing that contains all of them?
Looking for some guidance on how this is typically done. I'm very new to autocad and am not sure how a set of drawings is organized.
