Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding sloped sprinkler piping, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems (2015).
- From time to time, we need to add sloped pipes.…Well, we can do that, it's just going to…take a little more patience.…The objective of this video,…is to draw some pipe, of course,…but this time, we're going to specify the slope.…It's going to be one-eighth inch equals a foot.…Now we're going to slope it in the other direction…by using negative one-eighth inch equals a foot.…Then we're going to check out the fitting…that AutoCAD puts in automatically.…So to get started, let's jump into AutoCAD.…
I'm going to come in here and I'm just going to select…these pipes that we have drawn.…I'm going to pick this one three-inch pipe,…I'm gonna right-click and I'm gonna add selected.…What I'm going to do now is, under my routing for my slope,…I'm going to type in one-eighth inch and hit Enter.…Notice that the slope format is fractional rise inches run.…We specified that earlier.…So what I'm going to do is allow my bend method,…we can have it be an elbow or an offset.…
Let's make sure we keep it as an elbow.…So I'm going to pick a spot like right about here,…
