Improve the performance of Autodesk Civil 3D when editing a pipe network vertically

Updated: Nov 20, 2019

Pipe network editing in Autodesk® Civil 3D® tends to be very slow, especially when the plan production longitudinal sections are in the design drawing. Devotech tested a drawing to determine what the biggest impact on performance is when editing a pipe network vertically in the profile view. To our surprise, labels and profile view bands did not make a significant impact, instead the number of profile views in the drawing and the profile view lengths influenced the performance. In the test drawing, modifying pipes vertically took about eleven seconds, but after shortening the profile view and freezing the plan production profile views, the editing time decreased to four seconds.
