Once you’ve accessed the Remote Desktop Connection, you can begin working on Samsung’s Production drawings.

Drawing Locations

Production Drawings
Test fit drawings, blocks, lisps, and standard documentation can be found at the following location:
:*X:\60. Compiled Drawing\Updated Drawings\Standards

Drawing format

AutoCAD drawings should always be saved down to version 2010.
To default this setting go to your “Options” within AutoCAD
:1. Options (quick command OP)
:2. Select the “Open and Save” tab
:3. Under “File Save”
::a. Save as: pulldown to AutoCAD 2010/LT2010 Drawing (*.dwg)
:4. Since you’re here, you can also set your automatic save to 5 or 10 minutes
:Click apply and OK
If you receive a drawing that is newer than the version of AutoCAD you are running, you will need to download AutoDesk True View, to convert the drawing to version 2010. You may need to go to IT to download this onto your machine.

Drawing naming convention

Drawings shall be consistent with the following naming convention.
:* FMUSSJ3655-F05
::* FM – Facility Management
:::* Can also be:
::::* AB – Architectural background
::::* IB – Interior (furniture) background
::* US
:::* Country code for building location
::* SJ
:::* City code for this building location
::* 3655
:::* Building address for this location
::* –F05
:::* Floor number for this specific building location


Samsung follows RSC’s Standard layering system


Polylines must be used to create a space/record in Smart Client. There are two ways to create a polyline from scratch in AutoCAD.
:1. Polyline (quick command PL)
::a. When using this command, be sure to use auto snap within AutoCAD, if you do not, you could end up with remaining space for the floor, and this will be an issue down the road.
::b. Also, when using this command, always remember to “close” the polyline when you’re done creating the area. This will ensure that the space is complete and Archibus can use it.
:2. Bpoly (quick command BPO)
::a. This is the simplest way to create a polyline for a specific space. You must outline the area by either using lines or construction lines
:::i. When using this command, it is easier to turn any external references off prior to using BPO
:::ii. This command will always create a closed polyline within the space boundaries you’ve created
:::iii. If it does not create a space, it is possible you have an issue with the surrounding lines you’ve created, or the surrounding polylines.
Polylines are to follow BOMA 2017 standards.
There are 4 desk types that are currently standard for Samsung. These desks are to be polylined, outlining the attached panels of the entire workstation (as shown in red below). Polylines are to be split down the middle of the panels when desks are side by side.
Workstation A1

Workstation A2

Workstation B1

Workstation B2

Room numbering

Room numbers should be created with expansion in mind. This will prevent issues down the road where there are no remaining numbers for new spaces. This is a current issue, hopefully to be resolved later. For larger buildings, like USSJ3655, using the North, West, South, and East directions helps users and WayFinding navigate throughout the building quickly.
Floor number should also be used to distinguish location when searching for a room.
:* 02N170
::* 02 – Signifies floor number
::* N – shows location within building, in this instance, North
::* 170 – location number, this should be 3-4 digits
Numbering service space types.
:* Circulation (C)
:* Vertical Penetration, shafts, interior encroachment spaces (V)
:* Stairs (S)
:* Elevators (E)
::* C400, V400, S400, E400
:::* C – circulation space, V – Vertical Penetration, S – Stairs, E – Elevators
:::* 4 – specifies floor number
:::* 00 – this is the location number, can also be 3 digits
::::* If the building is large, it is highly recommended to use 3 digits to prevent running out of space/numbers
Existing buildings are not always numbered in the above manner. Going forward, new buildings should follow this room numbering style. For existing buildings, please follow the numbering system used for that specific floor. If an existing building or floor is getting completely refreshed, please follow this standard room number practice.

Assigning a space

Once all polylining is completed in a drawing, you can now begin to assign room numbers, and space classes.
The easiest way to do this is to start with the number (quick command “NM”) command. This allows you to number in sequential order, and multiple spaces. After all spaces have been numbered, you can use the edit multiple (quick command “EM”) command to edit several spaces that have the same space class type (e.g. – all workstations).
You can also edit spaces one at a time with the edit (quick command “ED”) command. With this command, a dialog box appears, where you will need to enter a room number, and space information.

Remaining Area

At RSC, we need to be sure the remaining area is <1.00 sq ft, after all polylines have been cataloged. In order to find this, you must log in to Smart Client and open up the floors (fl) table. If the “Remaining Area ft2”, you can add it through the “Fields” button. Calculating remaining area :* Remaining Area ft2 = Int. Gross Area ft2 – Total Room Area ft2 ::* Interior Gross = the interior polyline in the floor plan drawing ::* Total Room Area = the total square footage of RM polylines When the Total Room Area is a negative number, this generally means that you have more RM polyline space than the amount of Interior Gross polyline space. This could be because you have polylines outside of the Gros pline, or you have overlapping RM polylines in some areas. When the Total Room Area is a positive number, this shows that your RM polylines have gaps in between them, or the total square footage of RM polylines is not completely :

Publishing to SpaceView

Once the drawing is complete, all records have been cataloged, and the building/floor is in the system, you are ready to publish the drawing to SpaceView. Save and close the FM drawing to ensure all changes you’ve created or made are to be uploaded.
CADNow 3.1 is only accessible via the remote server.
When the program is opened, you will receive this error warning, just say “Yes”
In the CADNow program:
:* Click “Open” to open the drawing you want to publish.
:* Select drawing and say open or double click to open
::* Production drawings are at:
:* Once you’ve opened the drawing, be sure:
::* No text is visible
::* All furniture is showing
::* AB drawing is visible
:::* If it is missing, you may have attached the xref on the wrong layer
::* There are no anomalies in the layout
:::* Out of place items
:::* Something looks funky
:* You can now select “Generate Tiles”

SpaceView pictures

You can add pictures of spaces in SpaceView. This is mainly used for conference rooms, offices, and exterior courtyard areas.
To add a picture, you need to login to SpaceView with admin access.
Once logged in, you can navigate the system to add a picture to a specific location.
Under the rooms tab, type in the room number that you’re adding a photo to. If needed, you can also type in the building location, as well.
Select the room number you need, if more than one. On the pull down tab, select “Room Edit”.
In the “Edit Room Information” area, you can now select the “Upload Image” button.
If a photo is too large, you’ll get an error.
If you get this error, you’ll need to use a program to resize the photo. Microsoft Paint works well, with the resize tool.
When you finally get the correct photo size, you’ll get the notification that the picture has been uploaded.
Remember to refresh SpaceView, and check the floor plan to verify that the picture has been uploaded and is in the correct room/space.
When updating the IB drawing, in AutoCAD, with the appropriate furniture to an existing picture in SpaceView, you may need to access a larger picture. You can do this by finding the original file at the following location*.
You must be logged in to the Samsung Remote Desktop Connection to access this drive/folder.
You can also find the correct picture of that specific space by locating the room in the RM table of Smart Client. You will need to add the field “Room Image”. This field will give you the name of the picture
