Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Using object snaps and centerlines, part of AutoCAD Facilities Management: Areas.
- [Voiceover] We're staying in the drawing 00_GND_FM_DEFINE…or dwg and as per the previous video,…we've got the structural plan, the GA drawing linked in…as a reference file so that we can utilize the snaps on it.…Now this particular video, we're actually gonna talk…about utilizing those object snaps and the center lines…to allow us to define the areas.…Now up until now, we've been using the internal H…of each area and the doorway we've kind of been…splitting it in two.…
So for example, if I zoom in on this small little area here…you can see there's the area polyline there.…And can you see we're going halfway out into the doorway…into the opening and in the other room here…is coming halfway into that opening as well.…Now, you might want to do that slightly differently,…you might want to go to the center line for example…of each wall.…So let's have a look at that method instead.…You might want to use that method instead,…depends on your method of measurement that you use…for your particular FM drawings.…
So I'll zoom out again.…
