Can I create a pipe network from multiple objects?
For example, I have 10 feature lines that I want to use to create one pipe network. Instead of creating 10 pipe networks one at a time, can I create one pipe network all at once?
You would need to join the feature lines into one first.
Use the Joinfeatures command.

That may not be possible, eg if the features aren't connected end-to-end but branching off in different directions, or not touching at all.
Another option is to create 10 networks, then merge them together.

The feature lines aren't connected.
That's what I've been doing, is creating multiple pipe networks, then merging them. I would like to be able to select all 10 feature lines and create one pipe network.
Any other ideas? Maybe it's just not possible?
I like tcorey's suggestion. Add additional feature lines just to connect them for creating the network then joinfeatures. After you create the network from the single feature line, you can delete those dummy pipes from the network. Maybe mark the ones that need to be deleted with a magenta circle near the midpoint until the pipes are deleted from the new network.
