Learn How to Use Layers in this Upcoming NCS Webinar

February 2, 2017 - Industry professionals interested in learning how to use layers in the nation’s leading CAD standard should attend the upcoming webinar hosted by the developers of the United States National CAD Standard®(NCS)—The American Institute of Architects (AIA), Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS). This upcoming free, webinar, “CAD Layers: Why Do We Need Them?” will be held Thursday, February 9, 2017, from 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET.

The NCS developers host free webinars to give attendees the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of acquiring NCS Version 6 with its added features, such as the new  module on building information modeling (BIM). The NCS streamlines and simplifies the exchange of building design and construction data from project development throughout the life of a facility. It coordinates the efforts of the entire architecture, engineering and construction (A/E/C) industry by classifying electronic building design data consistently allowing streamlined communication among owners and design and construction project teams. Use of the NCS can reduce costs and produce greater efficiency in the design and construction process.

In this one-hour presentation, speaker Stephen Spangler will answer the following questions:

  • What is a layer?
  • Why do I need layers?
  • What makes up a layer name?
  • What are some recurring questions regarding implementation of layers at a site?

A graduate of Virginia Tech with a degree in mechanical engineering, Spangler began his career at the Naval Facilities Engineering Command. For the past 15 years, he has worked at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) CAD/BIM Technology Center in Vicksburg, Mississippi. He has been involved with the NCS since Version 1, serving on the NCS Steering Committee and various other committees. Spangler is the author of the USACE A/E/C CAD Standard and A/E/C Graphics Standard documents, both of which are based on the NCS, but add additional U.S. Department of Defense requirements.

The webinar will include a question and answer segment. Attendees can submit their specific questions upon registering for the event. They do not need to own the NCS to attend.

To sign up for the webinar, “CAD Layers: Why Do We Need Them?” to be held February 9 from 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET,  register now.
