Pipe Styles

I'm trying to display a pipe network with a certain pipe style, and in the same file display a profile of that pipe network with a different pipe style(crossing pipe style). When I change the plan pipe network, the profile pipe changes as well. I was wondering if one pipe can take on different pipe styles in the same file?

 

Thanks.

Yes, in the ProfileView properties, find the PipeNetwork tab, Here you can specify part style overrides for display in the profile.

Ahh... Yes. That's what I was looking for. Thanks.

 

Let me ask you a question...

 

Is there a way to automatically set a pipe network so that when you draw it in profile, it automatically takes on a style, for instance if the pipe is a crossing then it will draw in the profile as a crossing style? Instead of going through the profile properties and manually overriding the styles.

 

Thanks.

No, there isn't. It would be nice if C3D recognizd that the crossing style would be needed, but it does not do so yet.

Thanks. It would be nice to have civil automatically know what type of pipe condition it needs to display on the profile.
