Creating an Interference Check between a Storm and Sanitary Pipe Network

In design, you must make sure pipes and structures have appropriate separation. You can perform some visual checks by rotating your model in 3D and plotting pipes in profile and section views (see Figure 13-69). Civil 3D also provides a tool called Interference Check that makes a 3D sweep of your pipe networks and lets you know if anything is too close for comfort.

Figure 13-69:(Top) Two pipe networks may interfere vertically where crossings occur. (Bottom) Viewing your pipes in profile view can also help identify conflicts.
