[Resolved Issue] Editing Civil 3D Pipe Networks in Storm and Sanitary Analysis
One of my clients recently ran into an interesting issue when attempting to edit a pipe network in Storm and Sanitary Analysis. When we selected a pipe network element and selected Edit in Storm and Sanitary Analysis in the contextual ribbon, Storm and Sanitary Analysis should open and import the selected pipe network. However, we have noticed that Storm and Sanitary Analysis will open, but no data will be brought in.
For a demonstration of this issue, and Autodesk’s suggested workaround, watch the video to the right.
When researching this import issue, I discovered a solution that will make Storm and Sanitary Analysis import the pipe network correctly without any unnecessary workarounds with Civil 3D Object Enablers.
Watch the video to the right to see how I was able to solve the import issue for Civil 3D 2016, 2017, and 2018.
