Automatically add and adapt fittings in Pipe Runs in profile view adjustements

Automatically add and adapt fittings in Pipe Runs in profile view adjustements

It would be enourmously time saving if Civil3D was capable of automatically add and adapt fittings in pipe runs vertical adjustments. Right now every edit requests a lot of time, especially with very long pipe runs

Thank you for your idea.

To clarify: in Civil 3D 2024, in plan we automatically add elbows and adjust them to the correct size and rotation based on edits. Also in plan a tee or a wye will be added automatically when drawing a new pipe run to an existing pipe run. In profile the vertical elbows will update to the correct bend angle during edits.  But in profile you can't draw a new pipe run or a branch pipe run in a profile.
In both plan and profile we don't add or remove bends or other parts along a pipe run during edits. So if there's no bend there we don't add one, and if there is a bend there we don't remove it - we'll change it to the smallest if the deflection is slight. We don't automatically add a reducer if they change a pipe size - nor change a pipe size automatically if they add a reducer.
