I am new to Dynamo and was looking to see if I could use it to import information from an excel document into civil 3d for an existing pipe network. I would like to import inverts of pipes, pipe sizes, and inlet characteristics. Trying to bring old computations into civil 3d to make profiles much easier. A push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome! This is definitely doable and has been discussed a few times on the forum. I recommend checking out these links and seeing if it gives you a starting point.
I posted into a Civil 3d forum if it was possible to import a gravity network into Civil 3d and apparently is possible to do it with Dynamo.
I normally get the data information from an external software and then I put all the network information by hand, which is a tedius job because sometimes I need to amend something and I have to change everything again, so what I was wondering if it was possible to import an excel sheet with CL, IL, coordinates, diameter, etc. and make the gravit…
Once again I feel like I am at the end of my journey on a script, but then one little item falls apart…
I have two Dynamo runs that pull data from an Excel spreadsheet and push it into Civil3D. Run A is set up to where I select an individual pipe and it pulls in design data from the spreadsheet – it works like a champ. Granted there are multiple clicks, but it works. However, in Run B the user selects a pipe in a network, and Dynamo populates a list of those parts and pairs them up with flowli…
Thank you so much! Not sure how I missed these posts. Looking forward to playing around with this more.
