I am trying to figure out where to set the Automatic Surface adjustment for a structure in a pipe network. Right now I have it set to true but I would like to change that to false. Can someone please point me in the right direction
I was wondering where the default setting is. I am able to do it one by one to my structures but it would be nice to have the default set to "false" as it is causing some problems with the block we are using. I would like to be able to set the insertion point of the structure to "sump" which I have now and then be able to use the grips to edit the rim elevation.
I believe this cant be done. It uses a default of true when a surface is provided.
The Rim Elevation (with Manhole types) is always the insertion point of the structure and is controlled by the surface level and the a adjustment value. As for the Sump this is controlled by the lowest in/out pipe and the specified sump depth. There should be two grips on the structure, one at the top (the surface adjustment grip) and one at the bottom (the Sump adjustment).This is as it is designed to work so otherwise to adjust the level you need to use the connected pipes.
So no you cant redefine the insertion easily without creating new parts. How are the blocks causing you issues? Try using display as boundary in profiles/sections in the structure style this works.
