Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding sloped sprinkler piping, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Instructor] From time to time we need…to add slope to pipes.…Well, we can do that, it's just gonna…take a little more patience.…The objective of this video is to draw some pipe of course,…but this time we're gonna specify the slope.…It's gonna be 1/8 inch equals a foot.…Then we're gonna slope it in the other direction…by using negative 1/8 inch equals a foot.…Then we're gonna check out the fitting…that AutoCAD puts in automatically.…So to get started, let's jump into AutoCAD.…
I'm gonna come in here and I'm just gonna select…these pipes that we have drawn.…I'm gonna pick this one three-inch pipe,…I'm gonna right-click, I'm gonna Add Selected.…What I'm gonna do now is under my Routing,…for my Slope, I'm gonna type in 1/8 inch, and hit Enter.…Notice that the Slope format is…Fractional Rise inches run.…We specified that earlier.…So what I'm gonna 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 gonna pick a spot like right about here,…and we're gonna make a real long run out of this.…
