Node can be inserted with this command; the pipe levels will be calculated but the cover level will be either acquired from the surface associated with the network or interpolated using the start and end nodes cover levels.
if this node to be shown in a profile the profile will fade out (white ghost) which is a way to notify users to update it with the command UU.
Note: if only vertex is to be added not a node, then standard ACAD procedure can be used (select the pipe, bring the pointer near the center grip …. etc.)
Node can be deleted and the connected pipes will be processed per the user choice as shown in the dialog box.
All Branch Numbering:
Nodes of gravity networks can be numbered automatically including all branches and sub-branches. Numbering will folow the flow direction from Downstream to Upstream. the numbers can be assigned to the Node ID, the Node Label or Node Tag.
Similar to the previous command but this one to be used for one branch.
Match Node Visibilty:
With this command a selection set of nodes can aquire visibilty status from one node. Pick the source to copy visibilty status from then select the nodes to be changed.
Redefining existing nodes with updated one may not be as intended. with this command the old one will be deleted and the new one will replace it maintaining same data.
Import nodes data from file:
With this command node properties, levels and location can be updated from CSV file. updates will be based on the Node ID or the Node Label, and the must be unique otherwise updating base on property with duplicated values will be total mess.
