Need a new part for a pressure network but don't know how to make it? Pressure networks in AutoCAD Civil 3D software come with many different parts, such as bends, valves, and tees. But not everything that you may need is there. In this session, we'll go over what's required to make a part for pressure networks in AutoCAD Civil 3D using Content Catalog Editor. You'll learn how to create, manipulate, and implement new parts for pressure networks using Content Catalog Editor, as well as how to update the Pressure Network Catalog. We'll also cover how to use those newly created parts from Content Catalog Editor in a pressure network in your model. We'll demonstrate the workflow and process of editing and creating pressure network parts in AutoCAD Civil 3D and creating a pressure network. In addition, we'll review best practices, work-arounds, shortcuts, and the pros and cons of using pressure networks in AutoCAD Civil 3D.
- Discover best practices for editing and creating parts for pressure networks in AutoCAD Civil 3D
- Learn how to use AutoCAD Civil 3D and Content Catalog Editor (CCE) to create and edit Pressure Network parts lists
