Create a rule to set drainage node to (active terrain) when setting elevation reference

Presently when setting reference elevation for the node it lets you set it to the active terrain but does not rule it to the (active terrain). If this were done the inlet tops would automatically adjust as the design terrain changes.

DU: add drop calculation to node invert depending on lowest conduit wall thickness

Some times, most common with concrete conduits, the node invert needs to have a drop in reference to the lowest pipe to acomodate its wall. This would later be filled to match.For construction and BIM purpose, this difference is important. Special...

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...

Connection Region in Bottom of Node

The current connection region of drainage nodes are available for the side faces of node only. The software should allow the connection region of pipe/conduit from the bottom of the node.

Provide a list of Outdated Cached References

If a drainage profile uses a cached view rather than a dynamic one, ORD will provide a notification in the bottom right-hand corner that simply says "Cached References are currently displayed. One or more cached references does not match the curre...

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.

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...

Catchment Areas by shape

If I could select all shapes and have it create all catchments at once that would save a lot of time. It would be great to have a dialogue box pop up where defaults can be changed.
