vdPCADdesign, implementation sewer-pipelines

A while ago an implementation of vdPCADdesign for entering revision drawings for sewer-house connections was delivered. Main sewer functionality has recently been added.

The starting point is to increase the main sewerage system in AutoCAD with which design/revision drawings can be made. The AutoCAD polylines and blocks are provided with additional information allowing an export to GML-files. These files form input for the BOR system in which, among other things. the sewage system of the entire municipality is managed.

vdPCADdesign has a simple user interface; an AutoCAD ribbon and some dialogs.

When adding new sewer features, the properties must first be entered/selected in accordance with the datamodel, some of which are mandatory. Then the user can – as usual with a polyline – create the geometry. When closing the polyline, the pipe is drawn, on the correct NLCS-layer, with color and linetype. The Xdata-information is linked to it and a label is created. These labels “stick” to the pipes and when the location of the pipe is adjusted with regular AutoCAD functionality; grip edit, insert vertex etc. the labels are also adjusted.

There is a function to get an overview in table format of the different features. Similar to the AutoCAD Map datatable. It is also possible to export this table to Excel.

vdPCADdesign is a C#.NET utility and available for various AutoCAD-versions.

Due to the legal obligation to digitally store sewer house connections, vdPConsulting recently delivered an implementation of vdPCADdesign.
