In today’s webcast, Scott Kent (Autodesk pipes guru) showed everyone how to control their structure sump depth. Great, it’s about time. Right now, it assigns an arbitrary “2 point something” depth to every structure. Also, there’s no way to group change that value – you have to edit every structure via the structure properties. A royal pain, to say the least. We’ve been screaming for this to be fixed for a while now.
My issue with this is that the functionality was being shown in the webcast with NO MENTION that you can’t do it RIGHT NOW. It’s scheduled to be fixed in a future service pack, but YOU CANNOT CONTROL YOUR SUMP DEPTH WITH CIVIL 3D SP1 or SP1A
So, before you start asking all over the place “I saw this on the webcast, but can’t find it in my program”, let me say “you can’t yet. Maybe in the future, but not now.”
I felt like that German Kid in the video on YouTube watching this one….
