Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up sprinkler display configurations, part of Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems with AutoCAD.
AutoCAD has a ton of display options…that we can tweak to make our drawings look right.…Because we're using AutoCAD MEP,…the items we add to our drawings such as pipe and equipment,…who already have a layer assigned to them.…In addition to that miracle,…AutoCAD MEP knows the pipe is a pipe…and the equipment is equipment.…This allows us to manage our display much more efficiently.…This video will have us looking at…the Display Configurations dialogue.…We'll drill into how the architectural items are showing up,…as well as what MEP objects…we want to have visible in our drawing.…
So to get started, let's open up our sprinkler drawing.…I want to navigate over to the "Manage" tab.…We'll see "Style and Display" tab and "Display Manager."…But what I want to do is I want to come down here…and look at where it says "MEP Design."…If you click this dropdown, you'll see we have…a bunch of different items that we can select from.…Go ahead and select "MEP Presentation."…Notice that it completely changes…the configuration of how our drawing looks.…
