So, I finally got a 3d solid part published with the one attachement point (autodeskconnectionpoint). Looks great in object viewer with a pipe connected to it. However, put it in profile, and my 8' tall item shows like 1.5ft tall.
.content file available, though this won't let me attach it?
I have been playing with custom parts to see what could be done. I find that they insert and view beautifully in 3D. However, I can't seem to find any way to control their appearance in profile views. It looks almost like the program is putting in predefined, simple shapes based on the object type.
Here is an example of one of my trials. I created a fire hydrant on a vertical riser. In a 3D model view it looks good, but the profile view looks like a basic hydrant symbol. I would be satisfied if I could create and specify my own block to draw in the profile view.
These images were captured from Civil 3D 2013. I have not looked at pressure pipe in 2014 yet to see if this has been improved.
