Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding fire alarm devices, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- Let's add some fire alarm devices.…To begin with, the devices we're gonna bring in…are actually 2D, but the devices are still MEP parts,…so they're smart.…The objective of this video is to go into the tool pallet…and find some fire alarm devices.…We're gonna first add some plain round smoke detectors,…then we'll add some fire alarm strobes,…and fire alarm pull boxes to the walls.…So to begin with,…I'm gonna jump into my devices file in AutoCAD MEP.…
Let's start by switching our workspace.…So for workspace switching,…let's click the flyout,…let's go to Electrical.…This brings us into our electrical workspace.…Let's go into our Comm-Fire Device panel,…and down here we have some fire protection items.…The first I'm gonna do is grab Plain Round Smoke Detector.…As we can see, our properties show up.…For the style, let's click where it says…Plain Round Smoke Detector.…
Notice that we have a plethora of different items…we can select from that have to do with smoke detection.…We're gonna use this one for now.…So I'm gonna come into my model.…
