Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding hose cabinets, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Instructor] We're gonna need some…hoses inside our building as well.…The good things 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 palates.…Let's go to the equipment tab.…Now let's click on mechanical equipment.…
What I wanna do, is I want to come down to…fire protection, I wanna 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 kinda go down through,…and see which ones we want.…Notice the D1 indicates where we can draw our pipe 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 wanna snap it somewhere to this wall.…So shift, right click, let's go to nearest.…I'm gonna pick a point right about here.…
