Importing GIS Data for inlets

I see you can import junctions from GIS shapefiles, but can you import inlets? I have hundreds of inlets (mostly grate inlets) and I need to import the inlet type and inlet opening dimensions. I have a shap file with the inlet data, but I'm unable to import it into SSA with all the information I need.


I know you can import shapefiles as junctions and convert them to inlets, but then you would have to manually input the dimensions of the inlet. Is it possible for SSA to automate this processs?

The SSA GIS import does not import to an inlet.


Two options,

  • Import SHP to Civil 3D pipe network and use that process, or
  • Import SHP to Map 3D Wastewater Industry Model and use that process to import to SSA.
