Part Builder Orientation

The Civil 3D pipe network catalogs are drawing-specific. If you’re in a metric drawing, you need to make sure the catalog is mapped to metric pipes and structures, whereas if you’re in an imperial drawing, you’ll want the imperial. By default, the Civil 3D templates should be appropriately mapped, but it’s worth the time to check. Set the catalog by changing to the Home tab and selecting the drop-down list on the Create Design panel. Verify the appropriate folder and catalog for your drawing units in the Pipe Network Catalog Settings dialog (see Figure 13-9), and you’re ready to go.
