CONNECT Edition Update 3 version 10.03.01.08 of SewerGEMS, CivilStorm, SewerCAD, StormCAD, and SewerOPS introduces improvements and features to help you be more successful:
Stability enhancements and fixes to reported issues
The workflow for the Critical Storm Analysis wizard has been adjusted to make it easier to use and reduce the number of scenarios, alternatives, and calculations. The user workflow takes advantage of existing tools, like prototypes and the New Scenario wizard to decrease the time it takes to run the Critical Storm Analysis and the dramatically lower the number of scenarios created. For more information on usage and workflow, please review the Critical Storm Analysis section of the Help documentation.
Profiles can now be added to Custom Reports. This will improve the appearance and make your reports more complete.
To add a profile, you would first follow the typical workflow of adding a scenario and selection set. Next, either right-click on the scenario from the tree-form or click the New Sections button, then choose Profile. You will choose an existing profile and the profile type (Analysis Profile or Engineering Profile). The profile will then be included in the custom report.
The Explicit (SWMM) solver (available in SewerGEMS and CivilStorm) now uses an updated EPA-SWMM solver version 5.1.014.
Enhancements have been made to the hydraulic calculations and reporting when an OpenRoads Designer user is further empowered with a license of OpenFlows StormCAD, SewerCAD, CivilStorm, or SewerGEMS. This includes:
For more information on modeling subsurface utilities in OpenRoads Designer, see the following link: Understanding OpenFlows Hydraulics and Hydrology Functionality in Subsurface Utilities / OpenRoads.
The ability to archive change tracking data has been added. This can help with situations where including change tracking data may otherwise increase the size of the model's database file to a great extent. (for example the .SQLITE file could grow to many gigabytes in size)
The Crossing Pipes query in Network Navigator has been enhanced to accommodate different types of pipes. If you open the Crossing Pipes query in Network Navigator, you will see options for All Links (which will analyze all pipes and laterals), Current Selection (which will only analyze links already selected in the drawing), Pipes (which will analyze only pipes), and Laterals (which will analyze only laterals).
Improvements have been made to ModelBuilder imports using GIS-ID, which will make creating and updating models based on GIS-ID easier and more successful.
