  1. Un-ticking All Objects under ICM Properties and Themes

    The "Properties and Themes" provides the option to Display certain model Object Layers (i.e. Node, Conduit, 2D Zone, etc.). It is a very long list of about 50 layers.

    It would be helpful if there is an option to Tick (or Un-Tick) all layers at once.

  2. Spread automatic inserted vertices in Bank Lines equally

    The "Update from ground model" provides the option to “Insert vertices on lines to give maximum spacing of x m”. This is very useful for creating Bank Line vertices at small intervals. It would be helpful if those inserted vertices are spread equally over the Bank Line section.

    At the moment new vertices are created at the specified interval (e.g. 10m), which often results in new vertices created very close to the existing downstream Cross-section end vertices. This can result in tiny internal triangles during meshing.

    Spreading out the inserted vertices at equal distance over the Bank Line will provide…

  3. ICM - HEC-22 Combination Inlet for continuous grade inlets

    Currently ICM has 6 FWHA Gully Inlet types:
    ContCo Continuous Curb Opening
    ContG Continuous Grate
    SagC Sag Combination
    SagCO Sag Curb Opening
    SagG Sag Grate and
    UPC Grate

    A commonly used Inlet type (particularly in QLD Australia) that is missing from this list is the combination (curb opening + grate) on a continuous grade.

    Section 4.4.4.4. in the HEC-22 manual discuss the capacity of these inlets where the curb opening precedes the grate in the direction of flow. It would be particularly useful to include this option in ICM rather than assuming a grate only inlet type or having to…

  6. Restrict user ability to "Empty Recycle Bin"

    Ideally it would be good to give a couple of named users the ability to empty the recycle bin - everyone else can send things TO the recycle bin, and can go into the bin to recover 'deleted' items, but they won't be able to empty it. This functionality is already present in some other software suites, for example Microsoft SharePoint, where only users designated as 'administrators' can empty the recycle bin.

    The recycle bin in ICM is a wonderful upgrade over CS, in that it is now possible to retrieve certain items that have been accidently deleted. However, I…

  8. Assign wastewater and tradewaste profiles for special dates

    I would like to see that InfoWorks ICM has a feature that allows the user to be able to assign wasterwater/tradewaste profiles to special dates in a calendar year, for example, statutory holidays. Those special dates can be defined by the user. This is important when running a long period simulation for wet weather flow calibration, where a large storm event (and corresponding I&I) occurred on a statutory holiday which is not a weekend. Dry weather flow pattern for a statutory holiday is typically closer to a weekend pattern than a weekday. The user has the option to assign a…

  9. Volume on a discharge graph with results section

    When we display the graph of the discharge (flow through line) of a results section (line object), we don’t have access of the information about the volume (usually when we display a discharge graph, the volume is indicated at the bottom of the graph, but it’s not the case with a results section).
    It could be interesting to have this information about the volume (especially because the results section are a tool very useful to use).

  10. I want Infoworks' "Export maxima to GIS" to include the below parameters to assist scour protection design within 2D Zone

    1. For shear-stress-based design 1.1 Max Shear Stress (in N/m2 with at least 1 digit after the decimal point) 1.2 Hydraulic Slope at Max Shear Stress (in percent with at least 3 digits after the decimal point)
    2. For velocity-based design 2.1. Max SPEED2D (already available. Good job, devlopment team!) 2.2. Hydraulic slope at max SPEED2D (in percent with at least 3 digits after the decimal point)

  11. Classic view property sheet

    The classical lay out of object properties (property sheet in CS) in a separate window with different tabs i really did find easier to view and edit models.
    Also the cross section view of a link and manhole vertical section were really usefull parts to visualize the model in parts.
    I would really appreciate if the old way of presenting model parts would be optionally brought back into the package.

  13. ICM - Import of .XP files

    Current workflow for importing a XPRAFTS or XPSWMM/XPSTORM model into ICM is to export the XP model to a .XPX file. This is problematic as a user will need to own a XP licence to complete this step and is not always the case. This is particularly an issue for those that wish to update or migrate XPRAFTS models as the software is no longer being sold.

  14. Enable true 'zooming out' on graphs

    I am not sure if this is intended behavior, or if it is actually a bug/oversight, but I would like to request the 'zoom out' tool zooms out from the CURRENT POSITION, by one zoom increment (so just the reverse of how the zoom in works using the mouse scroll wheel). This would keep the zoom in/out consistent with how the GeoPlan zooming works.

    If you 'zoom in' to a graph (with the mouse scroll wheel or the 'zoom in' tool), and then pan across to a different time, and then try to 'zoom out', it doesn't work as expected.…

  16. Use tracers for water on mesh elements

    Our clients are more and more trying to figure out if damage to a property is caused by water from the public area (which is the responsibility of the client) or from private areas (which is not). When rainfall on mesh can pick up a tracer (eg. from existing objects like infiltration zones or roughness zones) we think we'll be able to better help our clients.

  18. Theme mapping for rain gauges boundary lines generated using Thiessen polygons method

    Boundary lines generated with the Thiessen Polygon methodology to define the boundaries for different rain gauges are too thin when they are automatically generated inside ICM. This make them quite difficult to see when a model is loaded with many different type of objects as sub catchments, mesh zones, roughness zones, etc.

    Providing our users with the ability to change thickness/colour/line type in a new row in the Properties and Themes, will allow a better visualization, therefore, better understanding in the Geoplan on how each rain gauge affect different zones of the model.

  19. Wet Well Graph

    As a modeler, I would like to see a plot showing everything for a pump station in one place. See the attached figure. Inflow/outflow and the flows from each pump. The 3D chart helps a lot showing which line is which.

  20. odour

    Air Phase Model Function - Can Innovyze consider to include air phase modelling function in InfoWorks? At moment, the odour modelling is done separately by various methods using the sewer hydraulic data as the input. As a result, the odour modelling has to be done by different teams and often costing. There is a strong market demand to integrate the liquid and air phase modelling, for example DHI already has a function. It is technically challenging to have a full integration, however there are well developed simplified ways to achieve that.
