Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up routing preferences, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Narrator] Let's talk about part routing preferences.…Part routing preferences actually define…what the physical pipe and the associated fittings…are gonna be.…Unlike the system definitions that define the…graphics such as symbology and layering,…with the part routing preferences we actually tell…AutoCAD what the specific pipe and fittings are gonna be.…What I'd like to do in this video…is open the style manager.…From there we're gonna drill down the piping objects…then the part routing preferences.…
From there we'll create a new routing preference…called threaded and change some of the pieces parts.…Let's just jump into AutoCAD MEP 15,…into our routing preferences file.…Let's go to the manage tab,…on the style and display panel…let's go to the style manager.…In the style manager, let's drill in the piping objects.…Now let's drill in the pipe part routing preferences.…Notice that we have a ton of different…part routing preferences.…
If we minimize this and go to pipe system definitions,…remember this is more of a home made kinda of an affair.…
