AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Modeling Gas Network - Constant Cover Pipe Rules

Feb 22, 2011

I'm attempting to model a gas network using the pipe tools (Civil 3D 2011). The problems I'm having:

1) The pipes are coming in at all depths (mostly too deep), rather than at the constant 3' cover I would like.

2) Pipes all have zero slope and "stairstep" at null structures, instead of sloping with the surface.

My pipe rule set is:

Cover only, min/max 3'

Match pipe-to-pipe, inv 0'

I tried adding a slope rule, it dropped pipes lower.

For structure rules, I have tried both 0' drop across structure, and no rules (hoping pipe match would take over). All are null structures.

I do have the surface referenced, and it is being recognized (structure rims insert at grade).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Minimum Pipe Cover

Mar 25, 2013

I am using a Pipe Network for all my drainage culverts on a large industrial site.  I have created all my pipes from "Create Pipes from Object", which were all feature lines.  While generating the pipes, I told it to use the object as my pipe invert.

I have set up my pipe rules (i.e. minimum/maximum slope and cover) to what I want.  Also when creating my pipes I assigned my design (top of sub grade) surface to them.  But I noticed that it's calculating my pipe cover from the middle of my pipes.

My pipes all have the right wall thickness, etc...set in the style.  Is there a setting I'm missing telling the pipe to calculate it from the top of the pipe...instead of the middle of the pipe?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Adjust Invert Elevations Of Pipe Based On Cover Depth

Dec 20, 2012

Simple program that will adjust invert elevations of a pipe based on the cover depth.

I have a existing uitility maps that only label the the cover depths. I have to show these utility crossings in my profile views. I have different rules set up for various depths when laying out my crossing pipes in plan, but I need the ability to to edit the various cover depths  more quickly. I am using Civil 3d 2012 only.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Dynamically Linked Vertically Offset Design Profile

Dec 6, 2012

I have a design profile and now I want to create one that's linked to it but have it 0.5m lower than the profile I just laid out. Is there a way to do this? I'd like to keep them dynamically linked so when i manipulate the 1st profile it will drop the 0.5m lower profile. In theory this would be a great feature to have in CIvil 3D.

At this point I will likely need to copy the profile and drop it 0.5m in elevation with edit geometry. Not ideal considering when I adjust the main profile I'll need to redo that process to show the profile 0.5m lower than my main design profile. (used as a side slope target).

Trying to make some changes to improve reading. The pipes are going to center of structure and would like to change the appearance but maintain the lenght to the center or in last case to the structure wall.  

The image explains the 'problem'. Red line should be the correct appearance

There is a way to correct the position?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Creating Profile Of A Pipe?

Jan 6, 2014

I'm trying to create a profile of a pipe.  I have elevation data for the pipe and natural ground I've created a surface from the natural ground then I created and alignment.  Next I created a profile when the profile was completed I  got broken lines and spikes for my pipe not a polyline that followed the natural ground.  I'm at a loss as to how I could fix this and I'm very new to AutoCADD I'm a GIS person.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Network Won't Show Up In Profile?

May 15, 2012

I am using civil 3d 2012. 

I have a network that I showed in a profile view and, to creat my proposed pipes network I simply copied the pipes and structures and used network split.

Now I have two networks, but when I project those pipes and structures into a profile they are not visible. 

If I check the profile view properties and look at the pipe networks tab, all the pipes are shown as drawn.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Diameter In Profile View

Feb 4, 2013

As it stands, if you view a pipe network in a profile view with no vertical exaggeration, you expect to see what is essentially an accurate long section in all directions.  However, rather than being applied perpendicularly from the center line (or arguably the invert), diameter is applied strictly vertically.

Now, this made sense in the days of hand drafting when it was far easier in a vertically exaggerated profile view to simply measure the dimension vertically rather than determining how the exaggeration affects the perpendicular distance.  But with the computer doing the measurements, is this really a problem anymore?  I've debated that to some degree it's strange to consider that the crown of the pipe may be at a (slightly) different station than the invert, but this is simply fact in the field.  And I've also thought that it's nice to be able simply measure vertically in an exaggerated profile, but I can't remember the last time I dug my scale out of the drawer.

All the theory aside, the real problem appears when you try to profile a vertical, or even a near-vertical, pipe.  The fact that the diameter is applied vertically means that the vertical centerline is shifted the length of the pipe radius downward and upward.  In other words, rather than seeing the invert and crown of the pipe, you just see one line, though it's really two lines on top of each other.

I wrote this off for the last 4 years of basic Pipe Networks because I acknowledge that storm/sanitary outside the building is rarely designed vertically, but with 2013's release of the Pressure Pipe Network, I really expected Autodesk to change the way the profile views represented pipes.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Perpendicular Pipe In Structure Profile

Jan 28, 2013

I have a pipe network and a profile for it.  Some of the structures have 2 inlet pipes.  The pipe system more of less goes down a road, so every now and then there is a cross pipe into a structure.  I have masking turned on under the structure style->profile setting.  I want to see the cross pipe, so I found on here that all I need to do is under structure style->view direction (profile)->make Structure Pipe Outlines visible.  I did that and still no cross pipe shows up.  If I turn the masking off it is there.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Network Profile Views

Mar 12, 2012

I am using C3D 2012.

I have a storm water pipe network and a sanitary pipe network. In the profile view I am displaying both networks. My question is in the profile view the storm pipes are in "front/foreground" of the sanitary pipes. Is there a way to "trim" out the sanitary pipe profile lines where they pass behind the storm sewer.

Kind of like a display order so looking at the profile I can tell which pipe and in foreground and which are in the back ground.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Masked Crossing Pipe On Profile?

Nov 7, 2007

Problems with masked crossing pipe in the profile view? So basically I want to show a manhole with three pipes attached in the profile view and I use style override for pipes in a profile view to show crossing pipe, but crossing pipe gets masked with "Enable part masking" option in the Structure style. So I either can show crossing pipe and projected pipes drafted to center of the structure, or I can see only projected pipes drafted to the structure outer walls, but cannot see crossing pipe.

I would like to see projected (incoming) pipes drafted to the structure outer wall, and crossing pipes. Is that possible? See figure attached.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Perpendicular Pipe In Profile View?

Dec 9, 2013

I have my alignment running up the page, it is the red line. I can show the profile of the  pipes and structures that run with the alignment but I want to she the elevations of the crossing pipes, not just the circle in the structures where they cross but the elevation of the crossing structures and pipes, (str 102-103 and 104-105). Almost like a profile that is cut and looks north (up) instead of the cut looking east west.Can I turn my profile view or take a view at a certain station or do I need to make alignments that run east west to do this? I have included a pedicure for reference.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe Ends Inside Of DI In Profile

Jan 8, 2014

I'm working in Civil 3D 2012 and I have an alignment going through 3 DI's and a MH. When I say to draw this in profile view the pipes end inside the DI sometimes. Not at the middle but inside it even though my DI has a near 0 wall and floor thickness. The place where the pipe ends is where the edge of the DI should be but it is being shown outside that for some reason. What can I do? I inserted an image. The piece that I drew that is supposed to be a DI in profile view is rotated wrong.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pipe In Profile Going In Wrong Direction?

Nov 9, 2012

I have a pipe network (data shortcut) showing in the profile.

The pipe network was designed from station 98+65 to 100+00.

But the first pipe (from station 98+65 to 99+30) is shown going from station 99+30 to 102+60.

The pipe has a lenght of about 65' and some how it is being projected incorrectly.

The profile is shown going from right to left.
