Collapsible (Hierarchal )Classes – I am a fan of using lots of classes. Layers are where things are, so you tend to have layers for stories of the building or for structuring the file. Classes are what things are. This means that you have classes to differentiate different parts of the design depending on what the objects are.

In a typical architectural project I might end up with 100 classes for all the different parts of the design. I would have classes for existing walls, proposed walls, and demolished walls. The joinery, I might have kitchen, bathroom, built-in, movable joinery, and so on. You end up with a class list is very long and difficult to manage.
