Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating fire alarm display configurations, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Instructor] It's time to think low-voltage electrical.…We certainly have come a long way from 2D AutoCAD.…The reason I say that is the basic fact…that we can set up AutoCAD MEP…and the display configurations…to include a fire alarm configuration.…This allows us to turn on and off…specific disciplines all in one shot.…This video will include trading a new drawing…and linking in the architectural model.…We will then create a new Fire Alarm display configuration…and add some items you'd like to see.…
So to get started, let's go to the Get Started area.…Underneath Start Drawing,…let's click the Templates drop-down.…Let's grab A-E-C-B Model U-S Imperial C-T-B.…If your External References palette isn't up,…type X+R, then hit Enter.…Click on the attached D-W-G button,…and browse to where you're keeping your architectural file.…Then, click Open.…Let's set our Reference Type for Overlay.…
We don't need a Scale or an Insertion point.…Let's click Okay.…Double click your wheel button to zoom extents.…Now, what I'd like to do is go to the Display Manager.…
