Pipe network bill of materials improvements in iDAS 12.3

Updated: Feb 20, 2023

We added improvements in the pipe networks' bill of materials in Autodesk® Civil 3D® that are part of Devotech iDAS 12.3.

Depth groups

There is an option to specify custom depth groups to get the pipe lengths and excavation volumes as per each depth group shown as a region 1, 2 and 3 in the image below:

The depth groups can have irregular depths, e.g.: 1 m, 2 m, 1 m, 1 m:

Pipe length calculation method

It is possible to calculate the 2D length or 3D length:

When it comes to depth measurement, it can be measured to pipe invert, pipe outside bottom and pipe trench:

Multiline reporting

The quantities for each pipe can be split into multiple rows for each excavation depth:

Structure depth calculation method

Structure depth can be measured to the lowest pipe invert or to the bottom of the structure floor:

Results grouping

It can be used to group results with a specific criteria, e.g.: all the pipes with selected reference alignment, all the pipes with a specific diameter:

Structure connections

All the connected pipes for each structure can be listed:
