Sewer - Library part

If there is someone interested in my Sewer - Library Part, i woult translate the setting-Parameters to English.


You have a 3D-Surface of Your enviroment.

You use the normal way of putting new points at the polygon-way of the sewer in Your surface.

Then You draw the points of the Libraray-Part to the exact wantet points.

The Librarypart draws You a extra rollout-section of the Sewer, which You can draw around Your drawing. In this extra rollout-You can draw nearly all points of hights -whatever You want - and You get a real 3D-Sewer

have a look at the german Youtube-Vid to get the idea:

As written before- i would translat the paramerters for You, if somwone would find this useful..

Or maybe You translate it for Yourself..

In the Meantime, You could try my "beta" Archicad 16 Edu Aut:

I am one.

This is a realy nice object. Maybe you can add few parameters:
1. User input Diameter for each Shaft + output this values in Plan (ex....AS1 DN100cm)
2. Text on Tubes always READABLE (now on tubes that have the direction from right to left is upside down)
3. What the "t" value on shaft means?
Thanks for betatesting!

t means depht (Tiefe) in german and there is obviously a bug in the polygon-shaft-text - in the rollout-section it seems to be ok.. I have to make that better!

Your suggestion for the diameters for editable shafts should not be very hard to do , maybe i have time tomorrow..

i added Your suggestions in the meantime - please report

the file to the old link is simply updatet.

This looks very nice!
English translation would be great!

It would be great to have an English version if it's not too much trouble.

Kanal 2 ... my observations:

1. If a new branch is connected to another in its shaft, the new branch starts without a shaft and the description of the shaft is not necessary.

2. A new branch shaft numbering should continue with the mark of the last shaft of the previous branch +1.
Made some changes on the numbers.

Its still the same link:

and the "naked" gsm-file

But its better to download the EDu, because the file showes the part "in action"

also changed:

1. There is a new line in the rollout-section-tab with the pipe-mat-text - to draw an active Point for switching different mat.-textes.. to try

2. The hotspot-switches in the rollout-section now will appear more near the drawing

I have only looked at it briefly so far. Is there a way to set the invert elevations independently at each inlet and outlet?

Do you plan to take this further toward a more complete solution?

If so it would be great to have more culvert and manhole options (both sanitary and storm sewer), pipe types (HDPE, PVC, cast iron perhaps), curb drains and so on.

Anyway, it's a cool thing and a good start!
Thank You for the flowers

I will let it grow - i make such things as a kind of "hobby", but it will grow - also into Your suggestion-direction.

My problem for making it functional for other "civilasations" than grman Europe is a little bit the difference in the kind of drawing such things, also the other needed parts like Your "curb drain" - which is not used in Austria.

So i would need Your help with such things - send me detaild plans with measures. (pictures in this forum, links and so on..)

And - by the way -
We here are planning all in meters. I never thougt in inches so far.. but i am alble to learn (slowly)
