Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Tagging the devices, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- The funny thing about devices…when they come in the AutoCAD MEP…is they're kind of dumb until you tag them.…It's true.…Once you tag a device, not only do you add text,…but you're also adding what is called…a property set definition.…These property set definitions bring along…all of the device's electrical data.…The objective of this video is…to go to the tool palette.…Then we're going to click the device tag…and tag all of our devices.…We will then compare a dumb device…to a smart device that has been tagged.…
Jump into our tagging drawing.…Let's make sure that our workspace…is set for electrical.…What I'd like to do now is go…to the tag and schedule tab.…I'm going to grab device tag right from the top.…I'm going to scroll into my pull station…and select it.…It gives me a tag with some default text.…I'm going to put it right outside of the pull station.…Now here's our property set definitions.…We'll see now it adds our voltage,…our phases, our frequency.…
Let's scroll down to where it says…mark abbreviation, mark number.…
