Anyone that could turn this around that quick? PLEASE contact me asap!

    Brayden:


    sorry, but I am booked but here are some threads you can check about doing this yourself, or maybe someone else will have time to do one for you.


    Try a search on "riser" if you need to see more threads, but some of the threads will be about stair risers.


    Good luck

    see post #8 for a traditional riser diagram
    I prefer 3D style

    They're actually called "Plumbing Isometric", try this for an example, and do a google search.

    They are definately called riser diagrams. I've done my fair share of CIVIL design, and all gas and plumbing companies call them riser diagrams.

    Since serving my plumbing apprentiship in 1967, and being a plumber and licensed plumbing contractor and designer for over 40 years, I think I'll still call them "Plumbing Isometrics", thank you very much . The term "riser" as it pertains to plumbing, means a "vertical pipe", that would mean if you are drawing a "plumbing riser" you would be drawing all of the vertical piping, not anything else. The isometric portrays the entire piping system, shown in isometric view with all water, DWV, and fuel piping, with sizing notes and relationship to one another.

    Of course you folks back East are still using those silly little saws with the blade on the wrong side, while we're using real "skillsaws" out here on the left coast , so you can an Isometric, "risers" if you want.

    Residential Details collection has plumbing diagrams included. This collection is done in Chief CAD, 3d. Very easy to copy paste. The problem is finding an available copy as the author retired.

    Perry:

    where are you seeing 211 posts ???

    the post by Brooklyn only had 1 post and that has now been deleted by CA as I reported it as SPAM via the red triangle in the upper right corner.

    Lew sorry, I guess that post has been already deleted before I looked at this thread.

    Perry:

    no problem

    that's why I give the name of the poster
    after the SPAM is deleted it avoids confusion as to who was reported

    Brayden, I trust you were able to find what you were looking for - since this was a post from over the summer months.
