How can headwalls be added to a StormCAD file through LandXML import?


LandXML does not directly support headwalls, so we use Bentley Attributes in order for it to work.

The key is this line:
<Property label="headwalldescription" value="smoothEndProjecting" />

If the value = “(UNDEFINED)” then the inlet description will be <None>

If it has a value then will create an Inlet Coefficient Set.

If the value is blank (“”) then the node will not come in as a headwall.
