DIW_HDsupply Posted February 28, 2011 Share Posted February 28, 2011 I am very new to MEP, and was hired to draw shop drawings for pipe. I am currently going through the tutorial book Aubin Academy Master Series AutoCAD MEP 2011. I'm at page 500 of 702. I am trying to plan for the future... and I have a simple question.. When I layout 3d pipe and then tag it I am anticipating creating a schedule for the Bill of Materials. I am hoping to make this as simple as clicking on a pipe in the toolbar- drawing the pipe and then adding a schedule from the toolbar. However I need the schedule to Populate all the information for the order... pipe coatings.. pipe finish... Pipe Supplier Make... Guaged (formula; pipe legnth May even need to specify gaskets and boltsets for flanged fittings. Is it possible to create a tool pallet that will facilitate this, or is it just not that simple? I'm not looing for a yes, no answer.. more over I'm looking for discussion so I can understand how to bend MEP to my will... or at least work within it's rules.
