As we considered last week, it is the little things that sometimes can make our day and before long we wondered how we lived without some of these little tweaks. This week we are going to look at another little addition to Civil3D.
Pipe Networks and Hydraulics are still separate. However, in 2010 there are coordinated much better. For example, you can import/export to STM files. There have been additional properties added to structures and pipes. Let’s look at structure properties. Do you see what I see?
What about pipe properties?
There is now a whole section for setting certain hydraulic properties for a structure or pipe. Of course, we could set the manning’s for our pipes for awhile. What good does that really do?
In your Pipe Style>Display>Profile are two new components that you can display. EGL and HGL! When you draw your network in profile view, the HGL’s and EGL’s (which can be entered manually or come over from the imported STM file) will be drawn also.
