Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Specifying pipe layout preferences, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Instructor] Let's set some defaults.…AutoCad allows us to set our pipe layout preferences…such as slope,…what happens when there's an elevation change,…and if we want AutoCad to automatically…label our pipe as we add it.…It even goes so far as to allow us to specify…male and female connection assignments.…Let's go to our Manage tab.…This time I want to go to the Preferences panel…and I wanna click on the Piping button.…So, let's go through our Pipe Layout Preferences.…
Our slope format, I wanna change it to Rise Run…with Fractional Rise Constant Run.…Example, quarter inch equals a foot.…We can leave the rest as a default.…For default labels let's make it automatically label it.…So, for label style, instead of none,…let's click the drop down,…let's select Standard Pipe.…I just happen to know that our Standard Pipe label…is gonna put in the pipe size as we draw it.…
We can go by quantity or by distance.…Meaning if I draw a pipe that's 100 feet long…it's only gonna put in one.…If I go by distance, however,…we can specify that spacing of that three inch increment…
