I am able to easily import sanitary sewer pipe and structure information from existing GIS information using the import wizard. I do have one issue that I can't figure out how to fix: even though I match the material field in the GIS shapefile to the material field in the import wizard, the material for the imported pipe network defaults to concrete pipe. I have tried updating the shapefile and the part in Part Builder so that the material information matches exactly, but it still happens. I can work around this by selecting "Swap Part" for each pipe and then selecting the correct pipe material and diameter, but this can be tedious when dealing with a lot of pipes.
Any ideas on how to get the pipe material to import correctly?
Thanks in advance,
I Just ran into this same issue recently. Is there a way to get the pipes to come in with the correct material and not just pick up by the size of the first pipe in the catalog that matches?
I have just read your post and I was wondering if you could please let me know how do you import "easily" GIS data into a C3D pipe network. A few questions:
I am sorry if this is an obvious procedure but it's out of my knowledge. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
