Naviate Pipe Features

Naviate Pipe contains many useful features, below we have listed a selection of the most popular ones. Naviate Pipe is a part of the Naviate Infrastructure bundle, please visit that page for general features or download a free trial to explore all features.

Pipe Network from Multiple Polylines

Creates a new pipe network from multiple existing AutoCAD objects such as line, arc, polyline or feature line.

Offset Pipe Network

Creates a parallel copy of a Pipe Network. Offset value can be entered as the free distance between pipes.

Set Pipe Slope

Modifies Elevation, Slope and Drop for a series of connected pipe network parts.

Pipe Trench Assembly

Naviate contain pipe trench assemblies for earth excavation as well as rock excavation and a subassembly for box insulation.

Service Pipes

Creates a connection point on the main pipe and then connect any pipe to that connection point to create a pipe-to-pipe connection.

Raise/Lower Parallel Pipes

Modifies elevation for pipes by referring to a parallel pipe and the entered elevation difference.

Objects from Network

Creates objects 3D solids or lines and blocks from pipes and structures, and copies existing Naviate Properties data to the created objects.

Import Pipe Corridor Settings

Imports corridor settings and surfaces for a Pipe corridor from a source corridor. This is a fast way to clear bowties.

Multiple 3DPolys from Network

Creates 3DPolys for machine guidance from pipe span.

Reference Surface

Sets Reference Surface and Reference Adjustment Value for multiple Pipe Network objects or entire networks at once.

Swap Parts Dialog

Swaps Multiple Network parts or an entire network in one go.

Constant pipe slope

Sets a constant slope for pipe spans, with or without pipe drop.

Reverse pipe

Reverses pipes one by one by “swapping” start and end structure and also “swapping” start and end elevation.

Connection point

Create a connection point on the main pipe and then connect any pipe to that connection point to create a pipe-to-pipe connection.

Update pipe network by 3DPoly

Updates an existing Pipe Network by using a 3DPoly or Feature Line.

Calculate elbows

Calculate 3D angles for bends/elbows between pipes and stores the angle in "Structure Angle" the structure between the pipes.

Simple Trench

A fast calculation for pipe trench volumes, the volumes are stored on the pipe as Naviate properties.
