Need to learn AutoCAD MEP 3D

Recommended Posts

Steve313

I have been using autocad MEP for a long time, I am Electrical. I would like to learn 3D. I don't know were to start. Any learning tools that I can use? I wanted to take a class but much of it would be a waste of time because they start with basics and 2D.

 

Thanks

Can you be more specific? What 3D components are you trying to learn to model and execute? If you are in the electrical trade, I would assume all panels, switchgear, busduct, conduits, cable tray and ductbanks would about sum up the extent of the 3D models you'd need/want to create. Is my assumption correct? If so, AutoCAD MEP can do all of these things with ease and I would be glad to point you in the right direction.

Thanks for your response. You are right, those are exactly the things I would like to learn to model.

Okay, good. Well, as long as you're using the Electrical Workspace, all these options are available to you. They build the 3D Components for you, as you design. Conduit and Cable Tray, for instance. Just initiate the command, begin your routing, change elevations when needed (via the Properties Palette), and when your done, rotate the model around in 3D to see your design. Same goes for all the other options.
