First, SMACNA is offering compli-mentary copies of the second edition of the “SMACNA CAD Standard” on its website, According to the association, the standard is designed to encourage consistency by building upon the second edition of the “National CAD Standard” (NCS) published by the National Institute of Building Sciences 2001. SMACNA also says that the standard will enable its contractors to apply CAD effectively to mechanical, fire protection, and plumbing design and construction.
