Good morning all.
Just in the process of creating a standards file for all the pressure fittings we use.
I would like the style of pressure fitting to place a 2d block in the plan view that "orientates" according to the deflection of the pipe. Problem is they are not comming in right and I do not have the ability to "rotate" them only flip them.
I have created some schematic blocks for pressure pipes. Through a little trial and error, I found that the symbol needs to be oriented along the Y axis. Here is the block editor view of a 45 degree bend symbol.
When applied to a 45 degree bend that is horizontal it will insert correctly:
However, if the the bend is rotated out of the xy plane, Civil 3D does not insert it correctly. The block appears to get skewed to match the plane of the bend. The following image shows a couple of 45 degree bends that have a vertical deflection. The one on the left is close to horizontal, and the one on the right has a nearly vertical deflection.
