Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding the conduit, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Instructor] Any conduit is pretty easy in AutoCAD,…that's for sure.…There is a nice sized menu on the tool palette…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 then 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 One.…
What I wanna do is click on the little plus button,…right here, add conduit.…Under dimensions for routing preferences,…let's click the drop-down,…under the go EMT Compression,…nominal size'll be half inch,…'cause that's the connector that we're using.…For my elevation, I'm gonna go four feet and head out there.…I'm gonna come straight up the wall this way.…I'm gonna change my elevation to 12 feet.…
Notice that it pushes it way down this way,…because it's putting a fitting in.…I'm gonna pick a point right about here in the hallway,…
