Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding hose cabinets, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems (2015).
- We're going to need some hoses…inside our building as well.…The good thing is, AutoCAD allows this to happen.…The objective of this video is to go find a hose reel…that we can place into our drawing.…We will then add some piping to supply it with water.…To get started, let's jump into AutoCAD…into our hose drawing.…Let's make sure that our workspace is set to Piping.…Let's go over to our tool palettes,…and let's go to the Equipment tab.…Now let's click on Mechanical Equipment.…
What I want to do is I want to come down to Fire Protection.…I want to find hose cabinets.…Let's drill into here.…Let's select the top one.…AutoCAD gives us a pretty good picture of it.…So we can kind of go down through…and see which ones we want.…Notice the D one indicates where we can…draw our pipes from.…Let's go down to the very bottom one.…Now, once that's selected, let's click into our drawing,…and zoom into our corridor.…
I want to snap it somewhere to this wall,…so shift, right click.…Let's go to nearest.…I'm going to pick a point right about here.…
