Pipe Profiles

There is a new command in the SincPac called the PipeProfiles command. This command takes a profile view and creates a profile at the requested elevation point along the pipes a tolerance value away from the alignment. This command is useful to create profiles for use in output to a data collector. The command is not dynamic, so will need to be run at a design change. This shouldn’t be that big of an issue since the surveying hopefully occurs after the design is complete.

The command may also be utilized to produce bands that show pipe invert elevations along the pipes at major or minor station values. Some jurisdictions require this. This command would require you to update the bands after each time the command is run.
