Civil Solutions Applications Expert<br><br>As a professionally licensed civil engineer Randy provides training, process optimization, and technical support in water resource and site designs. His involvements include a wide range of product types including AutoCAD, Civil 3D, Map 3D, Autodesk Storm and Sanitary Analysis, Raster Design, and Infraworks.
See how to expand the Dynamo functionality and fill some holes by including a package called the Civil3DToolkit within Civil 3D.
Have you ever wondered how Civil 3D Pipe Network pipes and structures change their appearance?
In this video, we will showcase a sample bridge design workflow using the latest 2021 versions of both Infraworks and Civil 3D.
Currently, there is no way to convert a Pipe Network into a SWMM model without using an intermediary software. Storm and Sanitary Analysis is just that.
Have you ever tried to insert geolocated data or imagery into either AutoCAD Map 3D or Autodesk Civil 3D only to have it end up miles away from your project area?
Starting with the 2020 release of Storm and Sanitary Analysis, Autodesk has made it possible to alter the Peak Rate Factor (PRF) when using TR-20 or TR-55 hydrology.
What if you are tasked with verifying the connectivity of a storm/sanitary pipe network for an entire community?
The following is a demonstration of the way to assign minimum slopes for a pipe network to each pipe size/material combination automatically for a specific network type.
Creating a template from that document into a different unit of measure is as simple as changing a couple of settings and saving the file as a new template file.
This workflow will show you how to export these network items into the ubiquitous ESRI shapefiles as well as how to map the data within each pipe and structure to the shapefile’s dataset.
A new feature in AutoCAD that has great potential to improve workflows but has not yet seen the adoption rate that it deserves is the Shared Views feature.
Here is an example of a simple storm pipe network in Civil 3D including several catch basins flowing to a trunk line composed of drainage manholes.
When working with a pipe network in Civil 3D, you may have run into an issue where launching the EditinSSA command results in Launching Storm and Sanitary Analysis.
Learn how to convert a sanitary gravity network from Civil 3D directly into a Storm and Sanitary Analysis model.
