Place a sanitary pipe that follows a terrain at a specific depth of cover.

It appears that the software currently doesn’t allow sanitary conduit FDs to follow a slope even when the FD is set to depth of cover. it would be nice to tell the program to follow a given depth under the terrain, so I can see the pipe slope vary...

External model checking process - by possibly running a report to identify where 3d conduit string lines have been placed - i.e soffit, centre, invert, crown or base, this will ensure all output data of conduits are consistent for construction.

This is useful to enable a) - checks to be carried out, b) - to identify possible conduits that require amending - to align with all others. This will enable consistent and accurate output data to be produced, that can be used to construct from.

Automate the assignment of a node's sump offset based on largest connecting pipe's wall thickness

We are looking for a workflow where the Sump depth value can be set to the thickness of the "largest pipe" connected to a node. When the user places a node, if there is an option to set the sump depth to the thickness of the pipe, then it would au...

Channels Attach to other nodes besides headwall

If ditches do become channel features, KYTC would need channels to then be able to attach to other node types besides headwalls since we have many conditions and locations where they outlet into inlets of various types.

Ditches be channel features

It would be wonderful if ditches were channel features so that they could be treated as surface features like gutters are to get head on inlet.

Combining Properties Menus

It would be super helpful if I didn't have to search two different property menus for where to change specific properties. If the general properties menu and the ORD DU properties menu could be more centralized into one properties menu, this would...

Custom Grate Spacing and Sizes

It would be amazing if we could utilize our own grate spacing for calculating the head on inlets. KYTC has several grates that don't quite match with what is in the delivered system, and this may affect the depth of the head on the inlet.

Element Templates Point to Multiple Cells

At KYTC we like to show the vaults of drainage structures, in order to do that S&S drew them for us. ORD does that in 3D, however, we turn the 3D off when producing plans. It would help in the case that we could point to two cells (one that ma...
