View Full Version : Labeling pipe segments in a network
2008-03-12, 03:59 PM
I am trying to station my structures (in profile view) with the distance between the structures, not the total distance of the profile. Any ideas.

So you are trying to label the structure with the downstream pipe length? I don't see a way to do it. Every idea I had on this doesn't let you put the downstream pipe length in the structure label.

Right. We design sanitary sewers and station our pipe segments based on the distance between manholes, not as a continous run. I couldn't find a way to do that either. I'm thinking that I'll just label the structures with the "Station Value" and go back and edit the stations manually.
Thanks for looking into this. I appreciate your time.

Perhaps you could set a station equation on your alignment. At each manhole, simply put in a station equation that says the station forward from this point is 0+00.00. I haven't actually tried this but a client of mine was doing it. One issue he had was that manhole now has two stations, the station back and the station forward. I suggested that he do the station equation 0.001 before the manhole and that seemed to work for him.

I am a little confused about why you would label the pipe length in the structure label. Could you show an example of what it is you are trying to achieve?

I've posted a solution to this over on my blog...
