Import Microdrainage - Parts list missing

255 Views, 5 Replies
07-17-2013 06:40 AM

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.

 

Thanks

Alb,

 

I too am having this same issue. Did you ever find a solution? 

 

Thanks

Hi both,

 

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?

 

Cheers,

Toby

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.

Should have mentioned I'm using 2013!

I was hoping they would have fixed the various bugs which have popped up rather than creating new ones...

Cheers,
Toby

Hi Guys,
