Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating sections, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Narrator] This part is what makes drafting in…3D all worth the while.…The ability to cut a section,…and immediately see the results.…For too long, when we want a section of a plan,…what did we do?…We actually sketched construction lines vertically,…then horizontally, and started drafting our section.…Wow, that was horrible.…Then when the designs changed, we did it all over again,…growing more and more agitated by the nirvana,…that was on the radio.…In this video, we will open a mechanical drawing,…then cut a section.…
We'll place a section off to the side of our plan.…Then we'll make some modifications to the plan,…and refresh the section updating it instantly.…So to get started lets jump into our MEP mechanical drawing.…I'm gonna come up to this area right here.…I'm gonna go to my home tab.…And what I'm gonna do, is I'm gonna actually create a…vertical section, on my section and elevation tab.…Go ahead and click vertical section.…
Now it's a two pick process, so what I'm gonna do,…is I'm gonna pick a point right about here.…
