Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Using system definitions, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sprinkler and Fire-Alarm Systems.
- [Instructor] In AutoCAD MEP…you have the ability to define a system.…This is important because we need the ability…to tell the difference between the different systems…we may have and also to stand out from the other trades.…The system definitions also controls…the physical graphics of the pipes.…This includes rise, drop symbols as well as layer visibility…and the abbreviation the pipe will be tagged with later on.…What we're gonna do here is jump into the style manager.…
From there we'll drill down the piping objects,…then to piping system definitions.…From there we're gonna create a new system definition…and set the proper graphics.…To begin with let's jump into our system definitions file.…I wanna go to the Manage tab.…Then I wanna jump over to Style Manager right here.…Go ahead and click on Style Manager.…Notice that we have a bunch…of different items we can manage.…Let's drill into Piping Objects.…
First thing I wanna do is look at Pipe Rise Drop Styles.…So let's double click on Pipe Rise Drop Styles,…let's select the top one, Pipe Break Patterned Rise Only.…
