Pronet is an extension for AutoCAD® Civil 3D that allows the user to add analytical data to pressure network objects (pressure pipes, pressure fittings, and pressure appurtenances) and perform an analysis using a modified 64-bit EPANET engine. The anlysis is fast and performed directly within the AutoCAD® Civil 3D environment.


Pronet Overview

The Pronet workflow:

Step 1:

From the Pronet ribbon tab, add analytical data to the pressure network model, using AutoCAD® Civil 3D and the Pronet extension. This analytical data can include typical EPANET model components such as junctions, reservoirs, tanks, pumps, valves and pipes.  pronet-overview-step1 

Step 2:

Launch the dynamic analysis interface to view the analytical data and enay errors that may exist in the model. pronet-overview-step2 

Step 3:

Perform the network analysis! The 64 bit EPANET analysis engine allows for a lightning fast analysis, and immediate result reporting.  pronet-overview-step3
