Hi,

 

There's no API to achieve this directly. You might have to create an AutoCAD entity from Civil 3D Pipe object which will have the Object Data attached. After that you can use ManagedMap API to export to SDF or SHP format. You can see some relevant code snippet in our ADN DevBlog :

Thanks Partha,

 

There isnt much available for map3d and civil. I have seen those posts and I worked around it.

but the problem is ...I cannot get the geomtry data of the pipe from the api. i can only get the geometry data of autocad objects but not civil3d objects....how to go about it...cheers..
