In Civil3d 2012 when the Edit in Storm and Sanitary Analysis command is used to send a Civil3d pipe network and Catchment areas to SSA the program appears to open as expected with the "Create New Project" dialogue box displayed.
When the Create New Project prompt is accepted nothing is displayed in the SSA plan view.
But.... If I go to the SSA File pulldown menu the .spf project file is available and when it is selected a dialogue box is displayed indicating that the Background file(the dwg) file cannot be found and do we want to search for it "Yes/No".
If No is selected the pipe network is displayed as expected.
If Yes is selected and the dwg file located and selected then the pipe network is displayed as expected but the background file looks like proxy objects.
Is this some kind of Path issue?
Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Make sure you go to the Autodesk website and load the "Hotfix"
How did you install SSA 2012?
If Civil 3D drawing objects are not being shown, you are missing the Civil 3D object enabler which will be installed if you install from the Civil 3D installation.
The hotfix is installed as is the Object Enabler.
Another symptom is after saying OK to the "Create New Project" dialoge box there is no option to open the log file which should be part of the process.
It appears that a new project isn't really being created.
A Repair doesn't resolve it so perhaps a full uninstall and reinstall is in order.
It appears that this is an install issue with the Infrastructure Design Suite. On two different machines (one laptop, one desktop) the program did not bring up the underlay, show the log file etc. Clean install etc of the suite did nothing to fix the issue. Do a clean install of plain Civil 3D and it works. I'm going to file a support ticket in the next little bit, but this needs fixed.
Dell Precision M6400
Windoows 7 64 bit
Every AEC app known to man loaded.
blah, blah, blah
Many thanks for following up on this issue, installing without the Infrastructure Suite cured it.
I'm opening a ticket as well, hopefully it will be adressed.
Does anyone have a resolution for this issue? I'm trying to export my drawing and network to SSA and nothing is showing up, despite having the hotfix and OE installed.
