How to apply OS MasterMap styling to DWGs?


I have been asked by a client to convert OS MasterMap to a DWG, and for the output DWG to be styled in the same way as the layer files which OS provide for styling MasterMap, using descriptive term, descriptive group etc. The only way I can think of doing this would be to manually define the styles using CAD reserved words, eg. line weight, thickness, which would take a long time! I have seen maps/screenshots of styled DWGs being used in CAD software. Does anyone know if there is an easier way of doing this, perhaps in FME?

The OS MasterMap data available for download from Digimap is styled using the tranformer called ‘DWG Styler’ in FME so that the end user does not need to apply any styling.
