What is a DWS file?

Drawing verification file used by AutoCAD, a 3D design and engineering CAD application; contains properties that must be conformed to in another drawing; used for defining drawing standards and for detecting violations during the checking process; can be used to specify standards for layer properties, dimension styles, linetypes, and text styles.

More Information

Multiple DWS files can be applied to a single drawing. Additionally, AutoCAD's Batch Standards Checker, which uses .CHX files, can be used for defining automated batch processes that check drawings against standards defined in DWS files.

Drawing standards files can be saved in the same manner as any other drawing. You can create new drawing, define its properties, and then select Save As → AutoCAD Drawing Standards.
