Hi

I have a watermain project and am going to design by Civil3d2013.

I just realized that Civild3d has 90-45-22.5-11.25 which are excellent for waterworks.

What should I do for degrees less than 11.25 .

thanks

Hamid

Two options, in the parts list (assuming you want to use the deflection option mentioned before) set the allowable deflection of the pipes.

 

Second option, create a new part with the deflection you need. Check out the instruction file that gets installed with Civil 3D: "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014\Sample\Civil 3D API\Part Publishing Wizard\PartPublishingWizardUsersGuide.docx" (note: that's the default install location)

Check the manufactures pipe dimensions.  For 12" Ductile Iron you can deflect up to (don't quote me, check for yourself) 5 degrees 20 minutes of deflection.  Civil 3d will allow you to deflect a pipe at a fitting or pipe / pipe intersection.  (see the image).

 

Check this link for deflection angles for ductile iron pipe (mechanical joints)

Hope this helps,

If you don't understand how rolling a fitting works, go ask a plumber to demonstrate it for you.
