    Default Pipe Invert Updates

    While using Pipeworks my inverts will not update and I am not able to change them. Pipe calcs are downstream to upstream and I can not update inverts (only the first one in the run) ... is there a setting that is on or off ... thanks

    You can only edit the first beginning invert and the ending inverts. The beginning inverts are determined by the "node drop" entry. You should be able to edit the slope and ending inverts of each pipe, using the "edit data" option under conceptual plan or conceptual profile in the pipes menu.

    You can edit the slope between the 'Nodes' to get the invert you want as well as editing the node drop as Ammon suggested. If all of your nodes have the same drop, you can set that in the Structure editor so you won't have to edit each one. You can also associate incoming pipe runs with your main run by typing the exact 'Name' that you gave each run into the Lateral columns at the stations where they intersect with your main run and the editor will pick up the invert for you to make it easier to check for busts and it even draws your pipe ellipse in the profile for you.
