Drawing Setup

Do most people draw on classes or layers or what combination of both. I'm training the office to draw on classes, but it's hard to get people to change.

I have given a few classes to fairly new CAD draftspeople, most coming form an art and PhotoShop background.

My findings(and these might not be accurate) are that VW Classes act most like AutoCAD's Layers. VW Layers don not exist in AutoCAD, but are similar to PhotShop's Layers.

I draw in Layers mainly for the "gray Others" ability, and because I can scale layers differently from eachother.

I had contributed an article on using classes and layers posted on NNA website. It goes through a number of reasons to use layers and if it does not meet one of those 6 criteria, to differentiate by class.
