  1. 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.

  2. Innovyze rewiewing & acting upon the suggestions in this forum more quickly

    I would like Innovyze (Autodesk)to provide more resources to actively review the great suggestions in this this forum. However it seems that months and even years go past and the suggestions just sit there showing as received.

  3. It will great if we can control the display of the labels in ICM to have a better visualization.

    For example : the possiblity of changing the precision in the labels (the decimal number of the value )

  4. Mesh zone on Mesh Zone

    The ability to have a mesh zone on a mesh zone. This would be useful when modelling Attenuation basins in 3D (using ground model / breaklines). It would easily allow to have a coarse mesh for the basin floor to improve the stability of Outfall 2Ds (where small triangles can limit flow to the outfall 2D) but still allow for a finer mesh for basin sides and in your study area.

  5. Pump Station Modelling

    Infoworks ICM pump station modelling principle is very basic, adding a pump between two nodes is highly hypothetical. There is no way to add pump station head losses.
    I would like to suggest incorporating pump station modelling (for Rotodynamic pumps) with pump curve and system curve theory. Then the model results would be much more realistic.
    There must be a tool to incorporate all the accessories in pump stations, between two nodes. Like pump station type, drywall wet well. And Parameters to calculate Pump suction and discharge losses, like all fittings, non-return valves, discharge valves, flow meters etc. This would…

  6. Remove Need to Validate When Changing Background Layers

    Suggest that a network not need to validated or show that it was edited (red circle) for only switching on/off a background (e.g., aerial)layer would be appreciated. Keeping scenarios straight is tough enough w/out the additional heart attack when I don’t recall changing anything.

  7. 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.

  8. 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)

  9. 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.…

  10. Split a subcatchment

    To be able to easily split a subcatchment into 2 separate subcatchments.

    For example when it becomes obvious that the flow from a subcatchment cannot be collected at a pit (node), it becomes necessary to insert an additional pit (node) to capture flows. The subcatchment needs to be easily split (say with a general line) into 2 separate subcatchments with similar data other than the new areas.

  11. ICM Template for printing muti-page Geoplan and Long Section views

    I can already batch print geoplans and Long Sections by themselves. How to print them together? My current approach is to learn how to manipulate the output PDFs using PDF TK server, ghostscript, and potentially pdfjam, but some of these are new tools for me and I haven't yet made it work. Is there some way to do it using the Print Layout?

    Current work in progress:

    Batch printing geoplan
    Save each spatial extents using Spatial Bookmarks
    Set up print layout, then select batch print button from toolbar in the Print Layout
    Geoplan showing each bookmark is saved on its…

  13. 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.

  14. Improve ground infiltration simulation parameters.

    Could we have a 'Node level affects groundwater infiltration' for the soil store please?
    This simulation parameter was introduced to InfoWorks ICM recently to limit infiltration from the ground store to the model. Could this be extended to limit flows from the soil store as well?
    As often when are using models for design purposes, infiltration can become excessive in design events compared to verification. Therefore we have to manually reduce soil store inflow, often requiring new limiting discharge orifices and nodes at each subcatchment with GI applied. Thanks

  15. 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…

  16. Our clients would like to see InfoWorks ICM apply daylight savings time corrections to wastewater and tradewaste inflows

    As a toggle setting in the run settings or in a wastewater/tradewaste pattern, this would shift the diurnal patterns based on the simulation date and daylight savings time start/end dates instead of working on standard time all year long. Mathematically, this is really straightforward, but may require internal indexes (and warning messages?) for the DST start/end dates. It would also require something to turn this feature on and off as there are several areas that do not observe DST. This feature would help us more accurately predict combined sewer overflow volumes and durations where base wastewater flow has a significant…

  17. Highlight and delete multiple vertices when editing features (e.g. roughness zones)

    In GIS software when editing features, there is often an option to select a number of vertices to delete/move them as a group. This would speed up time taken to edit features in the model like roughness zones that often need a lot of editing to be compatible with the mesh.

  18. adjustments to a selected set of scenario's

    In my opinion it would be very useful if you could make the same adjustments in one stretch for a selected set of scenario's. Similar to an adjustement you make in the base scenario that effects all the underlaying scenario's but than for a specific selection of scenario's. It would be handy to restore an error that occurs in several scenario's (scenario' that are all a copy from the same scenario)

  19. As a user I want to change the amount of decimals when applying Autolabels in Infoworks ICM

  20. 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).
