I have created a drainage network in Civils 3d and exported it to WinDes Mircrodrainage. Once i completed the drainage design i.e. invert levels etc i clicked 'project export' and saved as a FWS file.
When I return to Civils 3D and import the microdrainage - see attachement the part list pull down menu is empty. any ideas?
I have labelled the pipes using the microdrainage numbering tool, i have part lists in exisitance (i found them in the setting tab of the tool box.
Have you checked that the pipe catalogue is defined in home>create design>set pipe network catalogue? And that you've created a network parts list which is also defined in the network properties?
I've been using the WinDES imports for a little while now and it does have it's issues but I've not come across this particular problem?
Thanks for the quick reply Toby, I tried your advice but it was to no avail.
To clarify, I am using Civil 3D 2014. The solution/workaround I found, was to open up my drawing in Civil 3D 2013, where the command works just as it should.
I assume the Autodesk guys (Jack Strongitharm, I'm looking at you), are still working on it for 2014.
