CI4785-V: Efficient Pipe Designs

  • Save to my AU Saved

Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Generate pipes from feature lines
  • Place data into a construction plan set
  • Modify the pipe catalog
  • Use alignments, vertical profiles, and intersection tools to aid in pipe design

Description

Description

This class will show you how to manipulate and generate pipe parts lists and networks to efficiently design complex pipe networks using alignments, profiles, intersections, and pipes. You will see a 3-staged approach to design and output for creating a custom pipe fittings library, for generating multiple complex pipe networks and merging them together into 1 interactive network, and then moving this data to constructable plan sets. The class will contain instructions on how to add structure fittings and blocks to the existing pipe catalog and then assign styles to those fittings to represent the item graphically. We move on with a basic layout using alignments, then produce a profile of the center of our pipe. From this we will use intersections to tie the branches of our network together and then extract the feature line to create the pipe. Finally we will produce constructable documents using this data with labeling and math.

Bryan Thomasy

I have been an AutoCAD users since 1985. I have 17 years of civil experience ranging from Commercial / Residential site grading and utility design to large diameter pipe line and booster station design to Mining and Dam design. I began using Softdesk, then moved up through Land Desktop, to LDT and now into Civil 3D. I have been using Civil 3D since 2007 in producing constructible documentation. My current position is CAD Manager and I am the Civil Focus lead for Tetra Tech EAS.
