Put more pipe and structure parameters onto properies palette

Put more pipe and structure parameters onto properies palette

Designing pipe networks isn't so easy as it could have been.

As for me changing geometry and size parameters of pipes (i.e. slopes, size, top and bottom outer diameter elevation, centerline - not just invert as it's possible now) and structures via right mouse click and looking through specific element props - is NOT user friendly.

 

I would love to change all those (more or less) directly via PROPERTIES PALETTE, including in pipe or structure profile view.

Yes this would be very helpful. Also if the properties panel will show the following:

1-PRESSURE NETWORK the pressure part is assigned to, even if this is just read only.

2-Change the assigned pipe style in the properties panel. Currently this is done in the PARTS LIST from settings toolspace.

3-Show if the pressure pipe is the newer path-based or older part-based.

You guys could also look into having feature line properties but for the pipe network. Mainly straight grade. Also being able to change the inverts of pipes and structures and slopes on the fly like the add-on quuxpipeelevationeditor.

Have you folks tried using Project Explorer for editing pipe networks? The majority of what you've described can be accomplished from that single, modeless interface (which is far more powerful than the Properties palette).

That is good and all, but a simple straight grade feature would have sufficed. Especially if I do not have to update to CIVIL 3D 2021 or 2022. Plan view edits are simple and do not need many windows opened at once.
