Re: Block flow rates change after zone design

Hi Guilherme, Prior to design, flows may be quoted in Irricad based on the nominal flows from the database e.g., SDR for tapes. After the design process the actual flows are used where appropriate. You may have a mismatch between these in your database. One thing to note, for instance, is that the n...

Re: Drip Sides on Curves

Hi Rubem, While you can draw a tape with as many segments as required to form a pseudo-curve, this can be a lot of work. However, Irricad can convert curved lines into polyline tapes that are a usually good representation: Curve.png You can also use the tape block tool to create a block of curved (o...

Re: how to open standalone file(.DEZ) in link?

HI Ari, 1). Yes this is normal. Some changes were necessary in the latest version of Standalone to accommodate the Pivot module. The current version of Link doesn't know about the Pivot module, and thus gives errors. Unfortunately, there isn't really a very graceful way around this until we can rele...

Re: how to open standalone file(.DEZ) in link?

Hi Ari, As per "Opening Version 21 Files in Other Versions of IRRICAD" in the Irricad Release notes, you first need to export your design from Standalone as an "AutoCAD Conversion File (*.daz)" using File|Export . This can then be imported into Link using the IRR_FILEIMPORT comma...

Re: Math functions for more Label fields

Hi Nick,

Yes it should work for any integer value. Note that that isn't the method used by the "round down" example though. That simply subtracts the remainder of dividing the number by the specified value (100) from the original value.

Regards,

Dan

Re: Math functions for more Label fields

Hi Nick, We have typically only applied rounding to real numbers. Since the values you are interested in are integers, rounding doesn't work on them directly. This is the first time we've encountered a request to round integer values - mostly people want the exact number! With that said, you can rou...

Re: GE image skewed

Hi Nick, Irricad's GE importer takes data from geographical coordinates (a sphere) and translates them to planar coordinates (a flat plane) for CAD. Part of the process is to rectify the image so that the planar coordinates match the geographical ones. This is the "skew" in the image, and ...

Re: Flow difference between labels and zone

Hi, It's difficult to tell from your image, but the most likely reason is that the zone defined by this valve contains emitters that do not belong to the block. Have any tapes or outlets been added/removed manually in this area? The "Show Flow" tool might help to determine this if you are ...

The best way to make them distinct would be to use the descriptions and line styles/colours in the database. Another ...

Irricad Link Bug Fix for Google Earth Utility

We have discovered a problem with the "Import from Google Earth" utility used in Irricad Link, when executing the IRR_FILEGEIMPORT or IRR_FILEGEIMPORTKML functions. You may see the import window, which then quickly disappears, or the function(s) may appear to do nothing at all. In that cas...

Hi Victor, The import utility stores the size and position of the window when you use it. It is possible that, somehow, a position was stored that was off-screen. If the problem re-occurs you may be able to correct it by checking / changing the [Window] section of the INI file. [Window] LocationX=-1...

Hi Heath,

I think that it is likely the #LABEL# keyword you want - of course the label field in the database must have something in it for this to work!

Re: Sharing databases for multiple users - how to synchronise among us?

You can work simultaneously from a standard shared network drive, as long as you are very careful not to have multiple people editing the database at the the same time. Bear in mind that some database changes can be made through the Irricad interface (e.g., Riser Rules) as well as the in the Databas...

Re: surface models in Irricad Link

Hi Fern,

Not especially unless you want to do it manually, to check for errors, for instance (there is a command). However, Irricad will do this automatically should you run any function that requires it (e.g., any design function, hydraulic gradeline, elevation profile etc.).
