Urbano 9.1 - New version is available


Urbano 9.1
Urbano 9.1 works on top of AutoCAD/MAP/Civil 3D, from version 2013 to version 2018, both 32-bit and 64-bit. 


New version, Urbano, has been released with the date 08.03.2018. The most important features are following:
- New features in the function for calculation of pressurized pipes in sewage systems
- New features in functions for calculation of water demands and scenarios in water systems
- New features in the function for plotting of profiles
- New features in the function for LandXML import/export
- New features in the function for definition and calculation of parametric trenches
- New features related to system editing

In September, 2017, first official version of Urbano 9.1 has been released, with label
Urbano 9.1 is a major release of Urbano software, and it contains various significant improvements and new features: 

BIM (Building Information Modeling)
New options for 3D system view and the drawing of trench borders have been added. A new function has been created to export the entire Urbano system to Navisworks NWC format (including the DTM, trenches and filling layers). When creating the NWC file, it is possible to create Navisworks selection sets automatically. The IFC export was significantly improved as well.
Urbano Hydra
Calculations have been significantly improved by accelerating existing and adding new functions. Now it is possible to create and analyze demands and water consumption scenarios. By using scenarios, it is possible to quickly find relevant consumption states. A new type of preview was developed which makes it possible to analyze the values of sections and nodes simultaneously. The definition of system equipment (e.g. the position and direction of pumps and valves), as well as their data, have been improved.
Urbano Polygon
This whole module was completely redesigned. Existing functions have been improved and accelerated and some new functions were added. The initial creation of polygon topology has been significantly improved (e.g. automatic polygonization, conversion of closed polygons, automatic island recognition and error detection). Dividing polygons by arbitrary criteria was significantly accelerated. New functionality was added to the overlay analysis. Dynamic previews with new selection and sorting options enable quick and efficient control of polygon topology.
Urbano Canalis
In the pipe catalog, it is possible to create rectangular pipes with flat bottom, defined by two parameters: inner width and inner height, B x H. For the assigned rectangular pipes, it is possible to perform hydraulic calculation. A new function for hydraulic calculation of pressurized flow was incorporated.
Longitudinal sections plotting
Functions for plotting longitudinal sections have been expanded with new options - it is possible to draw each frame to a separate layout and set the maximum paper width, after which the program creates a new layout. There is also a new function for drawing longitudinal sections with more reference heights in the model.
Labels were divided into several groups - sections, nodes, stations, channels and other. It is possible to create them according to templates. In addition, new features have been added for labeling invert heights, while the functions for drawing and editing labels have been expanded with new options.

Defining and editing pipe invert
Defining pipe invert in longitudinal sections is one of the most important functionalities in the design of pipe systems. That is why a whole new set of commands has been developed and this functionality significantly expanded. New features offer a wealth of options and parameters with which setting and editing the pipe invert is much faster and more efficient.
Urbano Ribbon
Ribbon interface is complemented by new functions and allows the users to create their own panels and commands groups.
User data
The ability to define and assign user data is extremely important in the application of BIM technology. A completely new concept for managing user data has been applied. It is possible to define and set user data for all types of systems (sewage, water supply, polygon topology...), topology elements (sections, nodes, polygons...) and types of equipment (pumps, valves...). Working with user data is more intuitive and efficient.
House connections
New features for the automatic connection of main channels with house connections have been added. House connections have become dynamic, which means that they are automatically updated by changing the main channel invert. In addition, house connections can be drawn with multiple segments.
Cross sections and multi-pipe trenches
The function for defining and analyzing complex trenches with multiple pipes is enhanced by adding new options. The option of automatic dimensioning has been added, the definition of upper layers is enhanced and the key cross-sectional points are easier to define when drawing auxiliary lines, dimensioning and labeling.

Additional: Are you using Urbano Hydra for water pipe network design?

Watch new video to understand how to create scenario analysis for water supply system and export Urbano network to EPANET:

Urbano Hydra connects AutoCAD drawing (detailed water distribution network design) with EPANET hydraulic calculation. In Urbano Hydra, it is possible to create various water demand scenarios and choose which scenario will be relevant for the calculation. Unlike EPANET, in Urbano Hydra you can have various parallel water demand scenarios (alternatives) and those scenarios can be simultaneously previewed and compared – e.g. summer and winter period scenario, scenario with and without firefighting demand, etc. Scenarios can provide more efficient and systematic analysis of design and operating alternatives. They can be used to examine the impacts of different demand conditions, search for optimal parameters, and evaluate changes in operating policies. 

Alternatively, you can export the network data to an EPANET .inp file and, eventually, import the modeling results as an EPANET .rpt file. The important thing to notice is that in Urbano, all data are 
equal i.e. you can use all designed, calculated and imported data with profiles, sections, labels, 
reports etc.
