Re: Water Longsection ppf assistance

Please email the strings and the PPF you have, to "support@12d.com". I will have a look.

(Please also include a link to this forum topic in the email.)

Cheers,
Owen.

Re: Water Longsection ppf assistance

I just tested Super Alignment strings, and they do plot through the Pipeline Plot PPF Editor, too.

(It is definitely not a license issue, as that gives a different error message.)

Re: Water Longsection ppf assistance

The Pipeline Plot PPF Editor should work with strings of type "pipeline".

In the example shown, if the Network model "PIPELINE" does not contain any "pipeline" string types, you will get the error message you reported, as shown:

Re: Water Longsection ppf assistance

I'd guess you are using the wrong PPF Editor. What is the string type of your pipeline strings (via F2 String Inquire)? The Pipeline Plot PPF Editor is rather old and inflexible, and (I think) it only plots Pipeline string types, which are deprecated. The ordinary Section Long Plot PPF Editor can pl...

Re: Colours.4d Definitions and Data Export

The SUI colours do not have official RGBs, AFAIK, and we modified the two very pale ones, so they could be useful on drawings, too. This was in consultation with the IPWEAQ cad committee. See the comments in the file.

Yeah, I've thought about them and I'm still not sure. :-(

Re: Colours.4d Definitions and Data Export

I think the colour name of any rgb(rrr,ggg,bbb) colour is changed internally as soon as a match is found in the colours.4d file, i.e. the first colour found in the file, by colour number, with a matching RGB. (If it is not found, the colour name is not changed.) However, the colour number is never c...

Re: Colours.4d Definitions and Data Export

The only suggestions I can make are:

1) Coordinate with the other consultants to agree on a common set of custom colours for your colours.4d files,

or

2) Use the SUI colours from the standard colours.4d file installed with 12d Model:

Re: Water Long Section PPF - Service Clearance

Yes, I think the missing "service height" attribute is the problem with the plots. And the "service clearance" attribute would be wrong more than half of the time, too, on average.

Re: Water Long Section PPF - Service Clearance

Note also that you need to press Set Node Details or Regrade Pipes in the WNE, for the link attributes to be calculated. I have confirmed that it is (almost) working with Super Alignment pipelines in the Service clash file , in v15. I didn't test v14, but I don't think there is a difference. In my t...

Re: Water Long Section PPF - Service Clearance

The attributes are on the water string links. It should work. Will check again tomorrow.

Re: PPF Plot formatting into AUTOCAD

As a 12d support person, if I had seen this request before Matt and Sam [was probably giving training at the time] I would have advised along the same lines. :-)

Re: Drainage for Box Culverts

Hi Scott, Apologies for the long delay in responding ... This looks to be a case that requires the drainage.4d file to be upgraded to XML format. The old file format does not support box culvert width, but the XML format does. Another option would be to remove the pre-defined link heights for box cu...

Re: Hydro File Error

Upgrade to the latest v14. It supports ARI or AEP for use with Rational. Not sure exactly which version first included this enhancement. Feels like more than two years ago.

Re: Water Long Section PPF - Service Clearance

Hey guys, In the "Chainages/Uprights" section of the ppf editor, I'm have a bit of trouble getting the clearances to plot on the service clashes. All the relevant models are in the "Corridors" list and the "Cuts" list. I even when back into the network editor and made ...
