Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the tool pallets, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Instructor] How do we get our objects into our drawings?…There are quite a few different ways to do this.…The objective of this video…is to create a brand-new drawing.…This drawing will serve as a basic menu for our objects.…We will then use our palette to drag in a sprinkler.…Then we're gonna create a brand-new palette…and add the sprinkler to our new custom palette.…So to begin with, let's jump into AutoCAD MEP.…In the Get Started area, under Start Drawing,…let's go to the Templates panel.…
Click the little dropdown here to the right of the templates…and let's go down to Aecb Model US Imperial Ctb.…Now that we're in here, let's find our tool palettes.…To do that, let's go to our Home tab.…Notice that we have Tools right here.…Go ahead and click on Tools.…With our Tool palette open, what I want to do first…is save the blank drawing that we're in.…So simply click the Save button…and save this drawing somewhere that makes sense to you.…
I'm gonna call mine Palettes.…Now I'm gonna hit Save.…The next thing I want to do is…
