    Many organizations use gravity pipe networks for all underground piping, even pressurized pipes like water mains, despite the fact there is a specialized pressure networks toolset. Sounds crazy, but there are reasons for this, including long-established workflows with pipe networks, as well as shortcomings and learning curves of pressure networks. It boils down to time and money: is it worth taking the plunge? In this class we'll shed light on that exact question. Brian Levendowski will walk through the good, the bad and the ugly of Kimley-Horn's implementation over the past year. It's not all rainbows and unicorns, folks! Charlie Ogden from Autodesk will walk through recent key updates, such as controlling pressure pipe runs with alignments and profiles, as well as stability and workflow improvements. The aim is to give you a solid understanding of what pressure networks can and can't do, enabling you to decide whether they're right for your organization.
