CHANTILLY, Va. - An updated CADD version of the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association's (SMACNA's) Architectural Sheet Metal Manual is now available. The new CD provides users with illustrations from the sixth edition of the manual for use in design specifications.

The CADD Version 2.0 CD contains 169 figures in DXF format that illustrate the best practices in architectural sheet metal work, says SMACNA. Architects and designers are encouraged to use this resource to ensure that their specifications are consistent with the SMACNA design details.
