Pipe and Structure Profile Label Styles

I decided that by sharing I could come up with some decent ideas from the Civil 3D community and who knows, and maybe somebody would learn something new (myself included). This week I’m going to share with you the pipe and structure label styles that we utilize for profile annotation. More after the jump.

Adding & Removing Sheets from DWF

I was utilizing Autodesk Design Review today and removed a sheet from a set that I had, but noticed the way to add a sheet wasn’t exactly the same.

In my case I had a 26 page DWF set, that I needed to remove and replace the last sheet. Removing a sheet with Autodesk Design Review is simple as pie, just right click on it in your thumbnails, and delete. 2009-10-22_0914

After searching I noticed there wasn’t an “add sheet” button, or right-click menu so I had to do some searching on the intrawebs. Apparently it’s about as simple as it comes. I created a one page DWF layout of the sheet I just deleted, and then drag and drop the file from Windows Explorer into the thumbnail view where you would like it to fit. Sometimes it’s the simple things….

Setting up Drainage Area Hydrographs

Last week I talked about the setup of Hydraflow Hydrographs for use when creating and using it for modeling drainages of concern. This week I’m going to talk about how to setup individual hydrographs for watersheds or drainage areas on a project site. Check out the full setup after the jump.

Setting up Hydraflow Hydrographs

Another day, another new poster. Let me know what you think of Josh’s first post on Civil3d. com.

Hydraflow Hydrographs and Hydraflow Storm Sewers are two pieces of hydrology software originally produced by Intelisolve who was acquired by Autodesk to package within Civil 3D. Hydraflow is a dynamic hydrology tool that allows you to complete a watershed analysis for sites large and small. It also allows you to quickly use the common design methods that you require. Take a look at some of the functions in Hydrographs after the jump.
