Pressure Pipes in Civil 3D – The Full Design Process

Few tasks in Civil 3D inspire as much confusion, or frustration, as trying to develop a pressure pipe network. While Pressure Pipes have been around for years, they have a reputation of being difficult to work with and many firms have completely avoided them, opting instead to “fake it” with gravity pipes, or just plain 2D drafting on their plan and profiles. This class is designed to show you that Pressure Pipes are a viable and efficient option for your water, gas, and other pressurized pipe designs. The instructor will lead students through the full process of plan, profile, and section layout and editing of a Pressure Pipe Network from initial layout to completion. 

This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.  

Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2020. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version.
