File Size

Hi there,
I am doing network work for a property development firm that is
bringing 2-3 designers in house to do work in AutoCAD. I am planning
their new network infrastructure (and file server space), however I
don't know the average file size of an AutoCAD drawing. Can someone
give me a rough guestimate?
Thanks!
Evan

File size can vary greatly, but I don't suppose it would be unreasonable to estimate 750Kb to 1Mb per drawing file.

That's more in line with my practice. Each sheet is always well over 2M with typical 8-10 sheets (residential plans only).

The OP said something about site development not buildings. I have several site development drawings (given to me by civil engineers) that are in the 1.0 - 1.5 Mb range. Remember, the OP asked for an "average" file size.

Hi all,
Thank you for each of your responses! I needed a basic, average range, which is what I got.
Thank you again!

The truth is that the question hard to answer with the details given.
