AbstractCanadian Standards Association Committee B78.5 has developed a Canadian standard which applies to the computer-aided preparation and reproduction of construction drawings. In general context, it establishes the detailed recommendations on symbology and drafting techniques for computer-aided design/drafting in the construction industry. This paper introduces the standard, which will be published in summer 1986, and outlines the history of the standard, the requirement for standardization of computer-aided design/ drafting, the goals of the standard, and the potential benefits for the construction industry.
