1. ## Linetype for Storm Sewers?

What kind of linetype does everyone use for Storm lines? Do you use unique linetypes for each pipe diameter?

2. 3 polylines, the middle is dashed2 with a width= pipe diameter

Thanks,
Is there an easy way to do this if the centerline already exists? OFFSET or a Multiline maybe? Does LDD have anything special on this?

4. Try this... I can't take full credit, I edited the RRL.lsp found here

Thanks, I'll give it a go.

6. Hey that works pretty good! That will definitely cut down on time.

7. I use a few different ones, depends on the mood I'm in.

8. Most of the time I use a multi-line with a centerline of the pipe along with the inside and outside of the wall as shown. Other times I'll do like lpseifert says.

As I get better with Civil 3D and more involved with the pipes in it then I'll do them with the proper C3D tools, but until then...

9. any way you guys could expand this further and show me how to convert the initial polyline into a stormwater pipe but also into a dynamic block with a visibility option and able to change pipe sizes with just 2 clicks?

Hey, big ask. Looks like rustysilo has it all worked out, with cline and ID and OD for the pipes. Maybe he can point you in the right direction. As for a 2 click conversion, that may mean setting up buttons for different pipe diams.
