Detailer Training Series CD Course v3.0 (2000)
AISC and NISD jointly created a series of 12 detailer training CDs in 2000. These CDs contained MPG instructional videos and PDFs of example drawings covering the basics of the structural steel industry and 2D detailing. As a courtesy to AISC members, the contents of these CDs are available in AISC's ePubs collection.
A 32-bit Windows operating system is required to install the original navigation program. Due to the age of the software, AISC is unable to provide further technical support for installing or operating the original program. Some older troubleshooting FAQs may be found here. Note that the MPG videos and PDFs are viewable manually using contemporary software programs.
