Slope Across Pipes
Digitally signed app
If you are interested in Slope Across Pipes, check out Pipe Network Productivity Tools that includes Slope Across Pipes.... with EXTENDED FUNCTIONALITY!
This app provides tools for quickly modifying pipe elevations and slopes. The app supports modification of elevations by centerline, crown, or invert while offering a command for single pipes and a command for multiple pipes.
The app supports both circular and non-circular pipes types. The Pipe Slope Single command allows for quickly setting the elevations and slope of a single pipe. The command allows for selecting pipes/structures in plan view or pipes/structures in profile view and offers two modes, by slope and by elevations. With mode by slope, select the pipe in plan or profile view by the desired end of the pipe to modify the invert and apply a slope holding the selected end and invert of the pipe. With mode by elevations, select a pipe in plan or profile view by the desired end, and the app will prompt for elevations for either end of the pipe and set the slope based on those elevations. The command also provides the ability to select another pipe and inherit its elevation to be used in the modified pipe.
The Pipe Slope Multiple commands allows for quickly setting the slope of a number of pipes within a common pipe network and applying pipe drop across each structure. The command allows for selecting pipes/structures in plan view or pipes/structures in profile view and offers two modes, by slope and by elevations. When selecting parts in profile view, the command also provides the ability to extract the selected point elevation from the profile to apply to the pipe network. For both modes, the command does not care if the upstream or downstream end is selected, nor does it care if the start and endpoints of the pipes are in the same configuration throughout.

Best 40$ I have spent!!! Easily pays for itself within the first 20 minutes of using it. I have gotten updates for AutoCAD and new computer and made sure this app was installed immediately after. Contacted customer service for help reinstalling and they couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Got me up and modeling within an hour or two of my customer service request.I was able to update the model and make my deadline solely because of this fantastic app and even better customer service. Thanks again!!!
Money Well Spent!
this is the "easy button" app
Very good and useful app! Would you add a "Per mille" mode in "Slope form" in later versions? Thanks a lot
Thanks for the review and suggestion. Could you please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org explaining the "per mille" mode in slope form? It will help me consider adding it.
Best plugin I have ever used. Use it every day and it has saved me hours while making it simpler to test multiple design options quickly. Got a very fast and helpful response from the developer!
Great App! My company would like to purchase more licenses (4) but it's quite a price jump to $40 (instead of $25), is there a reason for this price jump?
Thanks for the review. I try to incorporate as much user feedback as possible into my apps, where it makes sense and does not impede current functionality. Many users have provided feedback regarding the app asking for additional capabilities that have been incorporated. Since the price increase back around June 2014, the app continues to prove to pay for itself within one project.
This is the best app I have seen yet for Civil 3d, it will certainly pay for itself in one day! Works perfectly as advertised!!! Thank you for saving me hours of agonizing work!!
The Slope Across Pipes app is simple to use, operates smoothly, is very intuitive and is very powerful.
Probably the best app on the market for civil3d. A must have for anyone doing gravity pipe networks. It will pay for itself in the first hour or two of use.
Almost the greatest thing since sliced bread! Love this app. Has saved me a ton of time.
This app couldn't work any better, it does exactly what we need it to do and it saves a ton of time. Definitely pays for itself after 1 use.
This has to be the biggest step forward in Pipe Network design since 2005 when Civil 3D was released! Pipe networks have been neglected over the years but this simple to use App puts the joy back in editing pipes! SAVES me soooooo much TIME, and time = $$$. Well worth the $25!
This functionality is desperately needed in Civil 3D. You'll save $25 in productivity in half a day of pipe modeling. While using the app I ran into a couple bugs and emailed Steve. He is extremely responsive, and worked out the bugs. A+ App A+ Developer.
This is by far the best Civil 3D add-on I've seen on Exchange in terms of practical use on day-to-day projects. I've seen people on message boards requesting this functionality be added to Civil 3D for years, and after explaining the challenge to Steven he came up with this outstanding solution in no time. I've had the opportunity to use the app on one major project so far, and it's already saved well over $25 worth of consulting time typically spent modifying pipe slopes and inverts during the design phase. Great job Steven!
I have been looking for a tool like this for years. Program works in plan and profile. Performance is instantaneous with the labels updating with the new information without a regen. Outstanding
By far one of the best plugins developed. Makes designing pipe extremely fast! Thanks :)
