AutoCAD’s layers allow us to categorize objects and organize them into groups. We can take this concept and use it on a larger scale by utilizing Layer States.

Instead of associating objects with each other, we can group layers together into Layer States. Thus, we can switch between different states that have specific layers turned off and/or frozen. Certain phases can be emulated, such as “New Construction”, “Existing”, “Demo”, and layers for different disciplines.

Layer States contain groups of layers and save us time when turning them on and off with a few clicks. For more information, please contact us at
