What is a hsb project

The function of this document is to provide information on the hsb project structure.
Every time you start a new drawing the drawing has to be in its own separate folder otherwise you will mix up element information from one drawing with information of an another drawing.

What files are contained in the project folder

The files that can be found in a project folder are dwg, dwl, ini, lst, dxa, dxi, dxm.

What is in these files

DwgThis is the AutoCAD drawing file.
DwlIs the AutoCAD drawing lock file (should only exist while someone has the dwg file open).

LstThis is a list file that contains a list of elements within the project.
