    Default Profile Pipe Lengths

    I'm creating sanitary sewer profiles using LDT 2006 with Civil Design. Is there a way to calculate and label the length and slope of the pipes from the inside face of the manhole instead of the center of the manhole? It still needs to be done horizontally (not with the 3D length). The result will be as normal, with 4 LF off the length due to 2' chopped off each end because of the 4' diameter manhole.

    The reason for center to center is twofold, one it is easier for the contractor to layout, and two you stand a lesser chance of being under in you quantities estimate. Also you will pay for the length of pipe anyway, the contractor is going to charge you for 8 or 20 foot lengths not actual, and he is not going to eat the slop. I understand your desire to be as accurate as possible, but the reality is you are not doing anything that will be recognized in the overall product. Just do center to center and save yourself the time and effort.
