Civil 3D: Clean Pipe to Pipe Connections

March 1, 2024 Leo Lavayen

Gravity Pipe to Pipe connection should clean up, but it may end up looking like 2 pipes running into each other.

First, the Pipe Style(s) must have the Clean up pipe to pipe connections enabled from the Plan tab.

Next, there must be a NULL type structure in between the 2 pipes.

Then, create a "null" style and set to a NO PLOT layer or simply turn the components off.  The blending from pipe to pipe should be automatic.

Just a couple of simple things that can help make  drawing look better.  If configuration is something that you are struggling with, IMAGINiT can help.
