In this video, Jim demonstrates the use of details to provide additional information on connections, reinforcing, or anything that benefits from providing a close-up look at a particular area of the drawings. Jim explains how details are called out, and shows examples of construction details.
- [Instructor] In construction,…lots of things come down to the details.…I can look at the plan view and get information…on things like how many wooden studs I need to build a wall…by just getting the length of the wall…and finding the note about stud spacing.…But if I want to see how the studs…connect to the floor,…I'm going to need to look somewhere else for the detail…and we saw that in the wall detail page earlier.…We also saw examples when we discussed…the structural drawings of jumping…to the structural detail page to find…more information about…the footings and foundation walls.…
Let's go ahead and take a look at that again…and see where that leads us.…So we'll go back to the foundation plan…and zoom in to that detail note that we saw before.…And again all the information that we saw in the plan view…is that this is a two foot wide concrete footing…and for more information,…we need to go to detail one…on sheet A506.…So let's click there again and go back to that page.…And again, remember,…that jumped us to the foundation detail page…
