Pipe Network Productivity Tools from Red Transit Consultants | Autodesk Civil 3D Add-ons

Our Consulting and Services Manager, Shawn Herring, wrote an article for this month's issue of AUGI World. Below is a portion of the article:

It’s always interesting to see all the add-ons to Civil 3D that bridge the gaps on what out-of-the-box software can do and what is really needed to pull off projects - especially on the civil side of things.  There are so many different sectors and sub-sectors of civil engineering and the project types are endless.

For this article, I reached out to my awesome network on LinkedIn to get an idea of what add-ons they use that are out there on the market.  There are literally thousands of add-ons so I narrowed it down to a few.  It was kind of like choosing your favorite child…..which in my case is easy because it's Addison!  She is my favorite, and here are a few of my favorite add-ons for Autodesk Civil 3D!

Pipe Network Productivity Tools from Red Transit Consultants

If you haven’t seen the tools from Steven Hill at Red Transit Consultants, you are really missing out.  I could write an entire article on just these tools.  In fact, last year’s AUGIWorld magazine on 3rd Party Tools covered just that.


This set of productivity tools contains an array of time saving tools for repetitive tasks with Pipe Networks.

·         They provide increased productivity to the following:

o    Pipe Network tasks such as: Swapping Parts, Adjusting Pipe Elevations, Adding Wye Connections, Modifying Part References, Modifying Part Descriptions, Labelling Pipe Crossings, Labelling Pipe Elevations at any Point Along Pipe, Renaming Parts, Gathering Quantities, and MUCH MORE.


Where applicable, all of the tools allow for handling multiple objects with three selection methods: Network, Multiple, and Path.

While you’re there, Steve has a new Lot Grader tool that may change the game for residential lot grading workflows.  As someone who designs thousands of lots a year, I can’t wait to get my hands on this software.  Mr. Hill, you know where to find me and I accept all free software!
