Join Josh Modglin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a pipe network to a profile view, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D Essential Training.
- [Man] And now that we've created our pressure pipe network in plan view, let's see how we can add those parts, the fittings and so forth, onto a profile view. And so, we're going to go ahead and click open on our exercise here, 11_03_PPProfile. And we're going to go ahead and select this pipe. Now notice again, we have the ability to create an Alignment from Network, so we can follow the design of our water system, gas system, whatever pressure system we're designing with creation of an Alignment Profiles, and of course a profile view.
Because we've done that already with our gravity pipe network system, we're going to focus in on another option on the Contextual Ribbon to Draw Parts in Profile. Because we want to draw multiple parts, we're going to go ahead and select all the parts we want to draw in the profile view first. And notice because they're all part of the same network, the Contextual Ribbon stays open. And so I continue to select these parts. I didn't select the entire network because we are going to place the network, this water system on a profile view of the subdivision design.
So this alignment that we see here, that represents the main road through the subdivision, is where we're going to place it. And so we're not going to bring the entire system in, we're just going to bring the portion that is specific to our work. And then I'm going to choose Draw Parts in Profile. It asks me to select the profile view. I'll come over and select this profile view here. And notice the parts are all drawn in. We have our pipes, we have our fittings.
And, of course, depending on the use of the fitting, in this case, we see the fittings are the vertical design where we have our 45 degree elbows placed in vertical and not being used in horizontal. And so depending, of course, on the deflection of those fittings, you see some may look smaller or bigger, simply, again by projection on top of this alignment or this profile for the center line. The water line doesn't follow that exactly, and so we have some adjustments in projection.
We have accurate and realistic projection of our pipe network onto this profile.
This course gets you up and running with AutoCAD Civil 3D. First, instructor Josh Modglin shows how to model a surface, lay out parcels, and design geometry, including the making of horizontal alignments and vertical profiles. Next, Josh demonstrates how to create corridors, cross sections, pipe networks, and pressure networks. Then, he covers working with feature lines and grading objects, and how to share your data. He wraps up by providing an overview of plan production tools.
