Under Pressure!: Pressure Pipe Tips in Civil 3D
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6 @ 11:00 AM - 11:45 AM PDT
Join Doug Benoit to look at and discuss what is cool, what works well, and what doesn’t when it comes to the pressure pipe tools in Civil 3D. Specifically, we will look at different ways of creating pressure networks and then placing those networks into your profile view. We will look at setting the design bury depth of the pressure pipe in profile. Finally, we will discuss adding a vertical offset to a network to go around other piping.
