Pipe Network Data Shortcuts incorrect inverts

136 Views, 2 Replies

I have a source drawing with a proposed surface, alignment, and pipe network.  When I data shortcut these objects into a new drawing, everything comes in correctly except the pipes.  The inverts are incorrect.  The pipes maintain correct slope, just the inverts on both ends are off.  The structures they are attached to have the correct rim and sump.

 

I have included a screen shot of the properties box for the same pipe in the source and referenced file.

 

I'm at a loss.  I have made sure the parts list and rules are identical in both files.  Any thoughts?


Thanks in advance.

Check your parts list again. The properties displayed on the right shows an inner diameter of 0"

Hmm... that is definitely the problem.  All my inverts are off by the diameter of the pipe.  The parts list are identical.  I dragged the parts list from the settings tab into my file 'test.dwg'.  The pipe network 'proposed drainage' in my test file uses the parts list 'FDOT Drainage', however, in the settings tab, it doesn't look like it is use (no orange triangle).  See attached.
