AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Use Pressure Pipes For Force Main

Aug 27, 2013

I am wanting to use pressure pipes for force main. If you do how do you add an air release manhole?  I tried to use an appurtenance part as an air release manhole. If I set the plan display to use a block it skews the block. For the appurtenance part I do not see that the pipe inverts are available for the pipe label. I thought pressure pipes would be for water mains and force mains. So, I am wondering what others do for Force main Pipes?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Add Pressure Pipes

Apr 17, 2013

I've been able to publish and then import valves, flange adaptors etc. with no problem, but if I create a flanged (metric) pipe using the Content Catalog Editor and then draw the pipe in C3D it shows blank ends, no flanges. I've split the pipe in the drawing to see if that forces flanges to appear, but nothing.

Do I need to create the flanges seperately and then add them to the end of pipes?

I'm using Civil 3D 2013

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Model A Force Main With Several Vertical And Horizontal Bends?

Sep 5, 2012

I am trying to model a force main with several vertical and horizontal bends.  Getting the network set up and drawing in the pipe segments with the styles is a sinch, what I am having trouble with is modelling the horiz and vert bends to show up both in plan and profile view.  I have done many sany and storm profiles but this is a first time with a force main.  Does Civil 3d have the capability of modelling these or is this more of an MEP type task?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pressure Pipes Follow A Surface

Aug 22, 2013

I am trying to create a pressure pipe network (right now I have 2 pipes) and have it follow a surface. When I click to follow surface it lowers the vertices but does not add any additional vertices to make the entire pipe network 5' below surface. My pipe lengths are set to 18' and the surface I want to use is set in my network properties.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pressure Pipes Compass - Only Giving Three Angles

Apr 21, 2012

I have tried a thousand different scenarios with the new pressure pipes.  When I create a new parts list and try to draw a water line, the compass only gives me 3 angles.  This is using the "out of the box" templates.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Force Refresh Is Not Working?

Dec 10, 2011

I am trying  to make a simple app using .NET classes.

I made a simple Windows.Form in which are check boxes (on for each layer of the CAD drawing).

Just to set the visibility of each layer. Everything is working fine, but I have a little problem with refreshing a drawing.

Changes of visibility settings are applied  after a form is closed.

I need the drawing to be refreshed after every check box check change.

 I enclose a method with handles check boxes changes. 

private void LayerCheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
CheckBox s = sender as CheckBox;

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Inner Diameter Of Pipes In SSA

Sep 30, 2013

I am modelling a sewer pipe network in SSA. At some stages we use varies pipe materials with different wall thicknesses. So I want to know how can I assign inner diameter of pipes in SSA so I just deduct wall thickness from pipe diameter and then assign it to the pipe. Or is there any possibility to make a pipe list with specific properties like part builder in civil3d?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Force Grading Object To Polyline Boundary?

Mar 4, 2013

I am working on a complex industrial site.  And I would like a constant grade of 3.00% from my road intersections to the edge of curves.  I know if I used a corridor, I'd be able to tell the grading to project ot the edge of the road/curve. 

I'm just wondering if I can tell a grading object to project to a polyline or feature line along a intersection curve?  There are many reasons as to why I'm not using corridors for this project, but I don't want to get into that.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multi Barrel Pipes

Nov 24, 2013

What the best way to draw multiple parallel pipes that cross a corridor.  In my example I have a track with 4 pipes crossing the track corridor on slightly different alignments (from perpendicular to skewed).  I have drawn the pipes on as individual pipes under the same network.

However I cannot get them all to display on the profile.  I have tried "Draw Parts in Profile" but it seems to bring up only 1 pipe. managing multiple pipes.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Crossing Pipes In Profile?

Mar 12, 2012

I have two pipe networks and two profile views, one for storm and another for sanitary.  I would like to show the crossing pipes on each of the profile views.  When I select the profile view, add a pipe and change the style to crossing the style is change to crossing on the other profile view (ex. on sanitary profile view I set storm pipe 3 to crossing style, on the storm profile pipe 3 changes to crossing style and does not display).  Isn't there a way to display the styles for pipes different in each profile view?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Drawing Pipes In Profile

Sep 17, 2013

How to do profiles in Civil3D and I have created a profile from the surface utilizing a miscellaneous alignment. I have also taken one 12"RCP and made it part of a network along with the catch basin and manhole at its start and end. When I click "draw parts in profile" it places both structures and the pipe, but in reality only a portion of the pipe crosses the alignment. I'd like to only display portions of pipes that cross the alignment at a fixed width form that alignment, say 2' to each side of it.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Existing Vs Proposed Pipes

Jun 3, 2013

I'm a bit of a Civil 3D newbie.  I've got a project that involves addition of storm drain to existing storm pipes.  I'd like to be able to use Civil 3D to include existing and proposed pipes in the networks, but be able to show existing pipes differently than proposed pipes on plans and profiles, i.e. screened. I can't seem to figure out a way to do this--I can effect changes to all networks, but not invididual pipes.

I also get the same result when I go to annotation, pipe label.   This only happenes to certain pipes or structure, others in the same network label fine.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Label Pipes / Polylines

Aug 23, 2013

I received some dwg files to show existing utilities from a local municipality. I thought the files would come as shp files, but they are dwg files. The drawings/dwg files show the layout of pipes, but the pipes are polylines. The polylines have data attached to them. The properties show material, size, length, slope, etc. I am trying to label the pipes/polylines and I can't figure out how to get the information from the polylines.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Optional Properties For Pipes

Jul 8, 2013

Back in 2010, I created several optional properties in pipes for labeling purposes.

The file I modified is: AeccPartParamCfg.xml

I have migrated this file to 2011, 2012, 2013 without any issue. In 2014, I am getting a run time error for one of the optional properties and therefore that option is no longer working.

Created optional properties and run into problems in 2014? Works fine in all my previous releases of Civil 3D using the same parameter file. 

Attached is the Parameter file and error at start up.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Force Corridor Rebuild Even If It Thinks It Is Current - 2014

Oct 23, 2013

How can you force the rebuild of a corridor in C3D 2014 even if the corridor thinks it is up to date? (no yellow exclamation shield icon).

We have .NET subassemblies that react to changes in the location of objects in XRef'd files.

In C3D 2012 when we changed the XRef'd objects position, we would right click the corridor and select rebuild and the subassemblies would rerun (no matter what).

In C3D 2014 if you select rebuild, the corridor does nothing if it thinks nothing has changed.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Profile Data Bands For Pipes?

May 15, 2012

In order to have a data band at the bottom of my profile label the station and invert of my sewer pipe I just created a profile along the pipe and then have a data band in my profile that labels that profile.  I have that profile style set to not plot so this way I can leave it on all the time.  This is all fine and well.  I have labels every 100' that label the station and invert elevation but at times I want to label miscellaneous locations along my pipe such as a bend or something.  How do I add an addition data band label to achieve this?  Everything I have found only lets me have these labels at a specified increment set in the band style.
