Sync pipe networks with Excel for easy storm water analyses

Oct 20, 2021 @ 13:00:00 to 14:00:00 (60 mins)

Running storm analyses on our pipe networks should be straightforward in Civil 3D. Yet, with the overly complex tools out there and no good way to effectively export to external spreadsheets, it’s more difficult than it ought to be. With Pipe Planner from CTC we can build custom in-app tables based on the exact parts and properties desired. This can then be exported to a preconfigured spreadsheet where we run our analysis, adjusting sizes and parameters as needed. We can then sync this back to excel and update our pipe network all in just a few minutes.


Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to create custom exports to external spreadsheets for stormwater analysis
  • After analyses are run, sync spreadsheets back to Civil 3D to update pipe networks
  • Save export templates to company standards for a quick repeat on other projects
  • Export pipe network data to new or preconfigured spreadsheets
