Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Methods of measurement, part of AutoCAD Facilities Management: Areas.
- [Voiceover] We're in a new section now,…a new chapter in our AutoCAD…Facilities Management 101 Areas course,…and what we're going to look at…in a bit more detail now is…defining areas in our AutoCAD…facilities management drawings.…Now, you'll notice we have a new drawing open.…It's zero zero ground FM…define dot dwg, and you'll find that drawing in…your lynda.com exercise files.…You'll also notice that it's got the GEA polyline.…
It's also got the gross internal polyline…as well, the purple one that we created…in previous videos in the previous chapter.…You will also need to link you GA,…your structural plan, to this particular drawing…before you start working through following the videos.…So if I go to the insert tab on the ribbon…and click on the little arrow here…on the reference panel, you can see…there is the FP reference file.…If I hover over that, it's the zero zero…ground GA define dot dwg file…that you'll find in the lynda.com…exercise files for this chapter.…
So make sure that you bring it in…as a reference file by using the attach command like normal.…
