Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding section lines, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Instructor] Suppose we wanna add a section marker…along with that intersection.…We can do that, it's simple.…The objective of this video is to add a section line.…What a section line is, it's basically a section marker.…We will then place a section off to the side…and go back and edit the attribute in the section marker…that comes along with the section we just placed.…So to get started, let's jump into…our MEP Mechanical drawing.…I'm gonna zoom back in on this area…'cause there's a lot of stuff here.…
In plan, it's very difficult to see what's going on.…We have no idea how high some of these elements are,…especially over in here.…We're gonna cut a section line…and we're gonna encompass this whole area.…To do that, let's go to the Home tab.…This time let's grab this buttn here, called Section Line.…Go ahead and select that.…And we're gonna pick two spots.…I'm gonna pick a spot right here.…I'm gonna come straight down and I'm gonna zoom in…and I'm gonna pick a spot right here.…
