Water Main Pipe Network

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to create a pvc water main pipe network in Civil3D 2012? Are there any pipes/parts that I can download from somewhere for this?

 

Thank you.

Why can't you use the PVC pipes provided with the pipe network design system?

I'm really just looking for a way to layout a pipe network that can weave and change slope without having to connect to a structure each time I want to change direction. Storm/San pipes run in straight lines from one manhole to the next in Civil3D whereas water mains should have more flexibility.

 

Surely I'm not the first person who has run into this problem but I can't find any solutions online.

Instead of drawing pipes and structures, only draw pipes.

What if you put a null structure at each junction point?
