Pipe Networks and Pressure Networks
I don't do this very often and when I do I always have to look it up. So I am going to write it down my self.
The First thing is to Import your SHP file. The file I will be bringing in and labeling is a Parcel File from an appraisal district.
Type "MAPIMPORT" on the command line, Select your .SHP file
This dialog box will come up with several options.
Make sure you select the correct Coordinate System you are in.

Some of the features that stand out to me are in RED:
Select Similar command can help speed up your production. It is one of my favorite commands when working with a topo file.
When you profile a Pipe Network and you look at you profile and you are missing the crossing Pipes in Profile.
There are two places you can check to see why it is not showing up.
1. Edit you Pipe style and make sure Under --> Display-->Profile-->You have Crossing Pipe visibility turned on.
OK.. I just spent way too long trying to get my C3D 2012 users a license.
When you upgrade C3D into a Infra. Design Suite you will need to run this hot fix.

AU2013 has officially started! Looks like a great turn out.
Quux Software has a ton of 3rd Party tools that run on top of C3D.http://www.quuxsoft.com/SincpacC3D.aspx
One that I have been using a lot is the "Station Points" Command.
Basically it adds a Station and Offset to the Raw Description of the point or points you select. That way you can create a point table with Point Number and Description.
Works Great when you have to control multiple points on the plan.
Autodesk University 2013 is a great place to Connect with a bunch of people working in the same field sharing ideas and learning new ways of doing things.
This will be my 8th year to attend and every year I come home with a lot of great information to pass on to my co-workers.
So get out there and share, collaborate, teach and get involved! And have a blast doing it.
