Dynamic Sewer Lateral Program

I spent some time at AU working on the Civil 3D Reminders Pack. Mainly creating a command that provides a dynamic link between in the sewer lateral and the main line pipe. In order to get some feedback I’m looking for Alpha testers to provide feedback, error reporting and suggested improvements. The program is built for Civil 3D 2010 only.

The program currently only works when the mainline pipe is moved vertically, the sewer laterals don’t currently move when the main line is moved horizontally. The sewer laterals will need to be in a separate pipe network from the mainlines for optimum performance.

I don’t have an installer (haven’t learned how to create one yet) so you’ll have to NETLOAD the program. To turn on the dynamic link you will have to turn it on by typing a command each time you open the file.

Here’s a brief screencast showing the laterals adjusting with the main line.

Once in the Beta stages I’ll be offering the program for sale.

Great post Chris. Hit me up if you still need a tester since I am working in C3D 2010. I can definitely play with it this weekend.

This is excellent I hope you get something worked out or at least give autodesk a kick start to develop their software more consciously
