In SewerCAD V8 XM or V8i, what information do I need to know about importing SewerGEMS models?Problem Number: 33542
1) The model must be saved in the compatible versions of the software because the software is not backwards compatible. For example, if you are trying to import a SewerGEMS 08.11.03.77 version into SewerCAD 08.11.02.75 you will encounter an error.message.2) Pumps: When importing a SewerGEMS pump into SewerCAD, each componentof the SewerGEMS pump collection is turned into a SewerCAD pump, withappropriate connectivity. The on and off elevations of the SewerGEMSpump are translated into two controls (pump on if node x HGL is greaterthan y, etc...) on the SewerCAD side.
SewerGEMs supports two pump definition types that are not supported bySewerCAD, Volume-Flow and Depth Flow. This data will be imported but youwill have to either change these pump definitions to a supported type,or change the references to these pump definitions to ones of asupported type for the model to calculate.3) Gravity network loops are not allowed. Two conduits cannot be exitinga manhole (flow cannot split.) So, if this exists in the SewerGEMSmodel, you will need to use diversions in SewerCAD in order for it tocompute.
