  1. Faster release Exchange license

    After a user uses the Exchange license, it takes ages before the license is released again so another user can use it.

  2. 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…

  3. Scenario assigned 'official' ID numbers within software

    I would like for scenario names to be prefixed with a built-in ID number, in the same way that model commits have official version numbers, and wastewater and trade waste profiles have ID numbers. ICM clearly tracks ID numbers behind the scenes, since it is able to keep the scenarios in the same order (rather than sorting them alphabetically or similar).

    When specifying exactly which 'model' was used to produce a set of simulation results, it is necessary to specify network ID, version ID and scenario ID - so it would be helpful to be able to just point to…

  4. compatibility with WMTS servers

    Compatibility with WMTS servers for the GIS layer control would be very urgent. Right now a lot of data is only to project from WMTS servers.

  5. Know which master database refers to a working/results folder

    Create a means to know which master database is connected to a working / results folder. i.e. to go from the long name of the working / results folder to the ICM master database. A simple text file within the folder could give the name of the master database and version of ICM,

  8. 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.

  9. 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)

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  14. 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. 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…

  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)

  20. 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.…
