We're just getting our feet wet with this, but we've already run into a few issues.
1. When trying to import a shp file for the manholes in a system, we get an error saying it expected a point shape file. It is a point shape file though. You can import it into C3D and it comes in as points. Work around: export it back out as a point shp file and it works just fine.
2. Now we have a shp file that'll import, when we try to make junction names up we get all sort of funny characters instead of what it is supposed to be. Example MSA 1127 turns into 4 asian character or a couple swastikas. The junction names looked just fine in Civil 3D.
Anyone with some ideas on this? And it's multiple machines.
Win 7 64 bit, C3D & SSA 2013.
I don't mean to hijack this thread but given the title I'm going to add a few issues I have encountered so far.
First let me explain my workflow for the attached example;
Is it possible to export pipe network from C3D to .shp?
If just .shp files are imported do they subcatchment join properly?
It subcatchments had inlet IDs rather than junction ID would the process work? - doesn't appear to
Why does SS export networks to 5 .shp files yet only import from 2??
Regarding the "ID" issue it appears from the above and what you are saying that the ID are incorrect on import and export but this is a known issue?
