- [Voiceover] So if you think drawing conduit was easy,…drawing cable tray is a snap.…What I'd like to do is jump into…our electrical project 02-12.…Under Electrical, Power,…I'd like to go to Floor Plans, Level 1.…What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna jump into my electrical room,…and I'm gonna draw my cable tray up, over,…and I'm gonna drop it down into my storage room.…I'm gonna need a little help for my section,…but that's fine.…So here's what I'm gonna do.…
I'm gonna zoom in on Electrical,…I'm going to go to my Systems tab,…I'm gonna click on Cable Tray.…Notice that we have a bunch of choices…in our type selector drop-down.…I wanna grab Ladder Cable Tray.…I like it 'cause you can fit your hand up in there,…it's good stuff.…I'm gonna start really low in the electrical room,…like, 50 millimeters.…Basically on the ground.…I'm gonna pick a spot here,…I'm gonna come up to about here,…now I'm gonna alter my offset to 2750.…
Now I'm gonna come up to about here…and it's gonna go straight up for me.…I'm gonna come across here.…
