In this paper, three solutions are proposed to simplify the surface texture specification without significant information loss. The first solution is operating additional default values for simplification. The second solution is utilizing simple symbols in CAD systems but affiliated with complete specifications attribute data which can be transferred to other CAx systems or end users for reading and analyzing. The third solution is using both default values and CAD specifications attribute data. After the combination, the shortest specifications can be generated and also can be employed in both paper technical drawings and CAD systems.
