  1. Clash detection between pipe networks

    Can wall thicknesses be added to pipes and manholes to check clash detections

  2. Run same return period with multiple climate change allowances

    When running the simulation wizard I would like to be able to run the same return period with multiple climate change allowances to enable a single analysis covering all scenarios. This will avoid needing to adjust inputs & rerunning the network multiple times to cover no CC, upper & lower CC limits.

  3. Enable drawnet manhole changes

    Enable the manholes assigned to impermeable areas on drawnet to be changed.
    It is currently not possible to change the manhole when editing a network meaning the areas have to be deleted then recreated. Being able to change the manhole would save a lot of time.

  4. Flood Studies Update: Ireland

    Add support for the Met-Eireann DDF Irish Rainfall Data. The IDF data can be downloaded from a website and automatically uploading this data would be a big time-saver for users in Ireland.

  8. Retain/Lock dummy MH names

    Can we get a function to lock/retain MH numbers, If you have multiple dummy MH's and need to make changes any name you have given to these is lost when renumbering. You then need to go through the whole process again.

  9. True Ground Profile on Long Section Exports

    It would be very useful if there was a way for the true ground profile to also be exported on long sections. Currently, when exporting long sections from microdrainage, the true ground levels are only shown at manhole locations and a straight line is used to replicate ground level between the manholes. Could a 3D terrrain file possibly be loaded into microdrainage so that the true ground profile is shown when exporting long sections?

  10. InfoDrainage - replace stormwater outline with DXF (or other similar file)

    Would be useful to be able to 'replace outline' of a stormwater control by importing a polygon (e.g. DXF, SHP etc), rather than the existing options which are just to redraw in ID only.
    Every project there seems to be need to replace an outline from another drawing (as architechtural desisns evolve). At teh moment have to re-set up the control each time this occurs.

  11. InfoDrainage - Time of entry to be called time of entry, not time of concentration

    Te has specific meaning in the UK when using the rational method (modified).
    Tc also has speific meaning (Te + sumTf).
    It would be better if the software wants the user to input a Te, that it calls it Te. At the moment it calls the Te Time of concentration, which is very confusing.

  12. Import/export of asset data to/from CSV

    DSD import/export for MicroDrainage exists but HydroWorks is now dead. A more generic import/export would be beneficial for exchange of information with other drainage simulation packages and with GIS systems for existing networks; something similar to the import/xport functins in ICM would be ideal.

  13. Assess scenarios based on annual water balance (runoff, infiltration, evaporation)

    Assessment of the annual water balance is an important criteria to evaluate drainage design at neighbourhood level.
    Functionality to assess scenarios in a chart (similar to typical pre-urban vs. urban) would save time in GIS-postprocessing

  15. Status Bar to report more significant figures

    The status bar currently only displays levels (ground model level, water depth) to 1 decimal place. 2 Decimal places would be much more useful, Especially to ensure a node is at a low point or in the gutter invert..

  17. Print Tickbox for Manhole Schedule Layout option

    In MicroDrainage 2019.1 the Manhole Schedule printout also includes a manhole layout, sometimes this is unnecessary and it would be helpful if there was an additional tickbox option in the printout settings.

  18. Enable locking of pipe numbers

    One of the aims of BIM is that all the different models you create match. If you issue a pipe network 3D model for construction with certain pipe numbering and then a minor change happens this can affect every pipe number in the system. But once it's already been issued for construction you can't afford to change pipe numbers as it would be too confusing, which means that the 3D model can no longer match the Microdrainage model.

  19. Switch design return periods when running cascade analysis

    I would like to be able to build a single cascade model & able run it for various design return periods instead of needing to create separate cascade models for each return period.
