  1. 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..

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. InfoDrainage - Data Transfer to Site3D

    How do I transfer my drainage model to and from Site 3D?
    In Micro Drainage the transfer is quite straight forward and although it isn't perfect, it is reasonably quick. There doesn't seem to be an obvious way of doing the same in InfoDrainage? Road and Drainage design is an iterative process so easy transfer is essential.

  8. InfoDrainage - All Outlines and Area

    At the moment you can replace areas with Free Form outlines. It would be good if there could be an ability to add additional points or replace with an imported outline

  10. Formatting of Reports

    The output reports from Infordrainage, are not set to fit the page and as such, there is a lot of "white space" left on the outputs. At present, there are no formatting options to change this. It makes the drainage report look a bit untidy.

  11. Snap tool for areas

    Just like in CAD DrawNet you can use the CAD tools to snap the points of the catchment areas to specific points, it would be useful to have a snapping tool built into the MicroDrainage program. It could be a simple tool so you can either put a new point of the area anywhere, or when you're close to a point of another area you can snap to that point. This would save going back and forth between MD and CAD.

  12. manhole and pipe size files

    when I start a new network, the criteria automatically selects my default manhole and pipe size file, can you change it so when importing a file for the first time it selects my standard default files, older versions did select the default file

  14. "Copy to clipboard" alongside print/export on Microdrainage spreadhseet input/outputs

    Would greatly simplify the process of getting results/details from MD into a report, skipping a stage in the current process (Export to CSV/Excel - Open)

  16. Change the size / dimensions of multiple manholes at once

    MicroDrainage Network

    It would be very useful if it was possible to change the dims of many manholes at once. It'a a very laborious and time consuming task to change each dimension one-by-one, especially if the network is very large!

  17. Easier selection of FEH and FSR Rainfall in the "Seasonal Return Period Wizard"

    Sometimes we are required by the LLFA to run storms <60mins with FSR rainfall and storms >60mins with FEH rainfall. This requires the "Seasonal Return Period Wizard" to be run twice following changes to the network and then exported in separate files.

    It would be much quicker if this could be specified in the wizard.

  18. Allow SOIL values < 0.15

    The Rural Runoff estimate tool in MDSUDS does not allow values of SOIL below 0.15.
    The UKSUDS greenfield runoff tool defaults to a value of SOIL=0.1 where SoilType=1
    This produces a significant difference in results. This difference results from using values of SOIL from FSR vs Wallingford Procedure and FSSR7
    It would be better if the MDSUDS tool allowed values of SOIL down to 0.1 for compatibility, and if the default values were standardised across the industry.

  19. Add update to existing network for the 'Export to Civil3D’ in DrawNetCAD

    It would be very useful if DrawNetCAD had the option of updating an existing Civil3D pipe network when using the Export to Civil3D option.
    The Autodesk Microdrainage Utility has this ability, albeit it can be unreliable.

  20. Missing design function and short cut

    1. Add vehicle tracking function to software.

    2. Be able to save to dwg format individual roads ( plan, long section and cross section)
      all layers with one click rather than saving the whole development plan if only revising one road.
