We've been unable to display drainage structures as cells in drainage profiles and I've found little to no documentation/logging of this issue. Has this been corrected in this release?
We haven't made any code changes specifically for using cells in drainage profiles for this release. We have improved the "Slice" functionality though.
The default representation of a drainage node is "Box", which simply draws a rectangle. The "Slice" option will slice the 3D model, so you'll see a more realistic representation of the node. In essence it's the same representation that you'd see if you did a 3D Cut through a node in a profile model. You can also now pick the profile run graphic, and change the representation method in the Civil properties.
One problem I can think of with using cells is that they are a fixed height, so they would not be able to correctly account for the different height of each node. I'm thinking that using a cell might be more appropriate for a structure of a fixed height, which might be the case for a water valve for example.
If you'd like to discuss this further, then feel free to email me at Jonathan.Smith@bentley.com
