Using the manufacturer's specifications I have created AutoCAD blocks for most 088 and 090 seats.

There is some discrepency when you create combinations (ie when you use Berkline's dimensions for individual seats, then combine those seats, the dimensions do not add up to the published dimensions for that combination).

The good news is, I haven't found a discrepency of more than an inch. I suppose it would grow if you were doing large assemblies like 8 seats in a row.

The drawings depict the 3" needed behind the seats for reclining (dashed line) as well as the final position of the footrest and seating.

The drawing file is in AutoCAD .dwg format (right-click and use "Save As"). I believe you can import these into Visio as well, although I have never used Visio.

If anyone needs a specific format, I can try converting the images-- the best being vector based (EPS, PDF, etc).

I appreciate all the help and advice I have gotten from you guys. I hope some of you find these useful.

The seats included are as follows:

How about a .dxf version so people can haul them into other cad programs as well as older versions of acad? Looks like a useful file - thanks!

I've saved the file down to AutoCAD R12, you can grab it here.

Hope they are useful. If you make any other combinations maybe you could add them to this thread?

I'd be happy to host the files.

Mr. Tim...

The drawings are great! Any reason you went with ACAD 12 as opposed to a newer version?!

Maybe all he has is AutoCad 12 or maybe for backwads compatability with other CAD programs. Either way if you have a newer version, you should be able to open the file. ;)

This is true! But AutoCAD has made some really good advancements in it's compatibility in the recent versions. Exporting out to DXF JPEG and such is much better.

The .dxf drawings were by request. The AUtoCAD 2005 .dwg's are in the original post :)
