Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding the conduit, part of Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems with AutoCAD.
- Adding conduit is pretty easy in AutoCAD, that's for sure.…There is a nice sized menu on the tool pallet…and we can add conduit in any place, at any elevation.…This video has us adding conduit.…We will first add conduit automatically…from our control panel.…Then we'll go and run conduit from other locations…in the building, just to give you the feel for it…and to select some different systems.…To get started, let's jump into our Conduit drawing.…Let's scroll in on the electrical room.…Let's select our control panel M-1.…
What I want to do is click on the…little plus button, right here, Add Conduit.…Under Dimensions for Routing preferences,…let's click the drop down.…I'd like to go EMT Compression.…Nominal size will be 1/2"…because that's the connector that we're using.…From my elevation, I'm going to go 4' and hit Enter.…I'm going to go straight up the wall this way.…I'm going to change my elevation to 12'.…
Notice that it pushes it way down this way…because it's putting a fitting in.…I'm going to pick a point right about here in the hall way.…
