Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding sprinkler piping, part of Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems with AutoCAD.
- With the sprinklers in place,…we can start adding our mains and branch piping.…To do this,…we'll be using the threaded pipe…that is configured and a system that makes sense.…We'll first model our main run…through Office 103.…Then, by using the sprinklers we have modeled in place,…we'll start modeling our branch piping.…To get started, let's jump into AutoCAD MEP.…Let's hit our pipe drawing.…I wanna start by just drawing a main run…right up through here.…We'll come down,…then we'll go up our hallway.…
To do that, let's make sure…that our workspace is set for Piping.…What I'd like to do now is,…on our tool palette,…let's find gravity pipe.…Let's click our Pipe button.…For our system, let's make sure…on Fire Protection, Wet Pipe,…our routing preferences are set for Threaded.…For the nominal size,…let's click the drop-down.…Let's go down to four inches.…For our elevation, let's go up to 12 feet.…
I'm gonna pick a point right here.…I'm gonna come straight down my building.…I'm gonna stop just before my vestibule.…I'm gonna pick a point here.…
