"Stormcad Design"

What do you like best?

Its a great tool to use for displaying your stormwater designs in a graphical way. Makes it very easy to generate reports, and display information for people without an engineering degree to understand the information conveyed.

What do you dislike?

The software is primarily run with a mouse. No command bar like typical bentley/autodesk products, so it can become tedious if you are designing a large storm network. Also note this means there isn't any custom settings/ added scripts, or commands you can input, but there really isnt a need for that in this software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's really easy to pick up. Take time to familiarize yourself with the different network components that you can create and be consistent with the data you enter for each network piece. It's easy to miss entering data into every network property (pipe or catch basin etc) if you are not careful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We design all our stormwater systems using stormcad. it allows us to run multiple rain events or peak water runoff events to determine if the system is properly sized.

"Storm Water Network design Made handy by Bently"

What do you like best?

I like the dynamism of the stormCAd/ Sewer Gems, as it can design both Rational method or FEH/SUDS method. I have written macros using excel to shorten the design work such as creating selection sets for the manholes or with particular pipe diameter or material etc. it is very easy to import the macros to the software.

What do you dislike?

More detailed Analysis and better graphical representation

Recommendations to others considering the product

try using this product it is more user-friendly than any other software, this product can be used to design the stormwater network anywhere on the planet as it has incorporated many design methods used by different regions. Currently, I am using this product for two regions, 1. Middle East ( UAE, KSA, Qatar, Bahrain) 2. The United Kingdom.

Middle East is mainly dealing with Rational Method and UK deals with SUDS, both methods can be designed and analyzed using STorm CAD. Sometimes I have used this product for designing sewer networks in India also. This product is very compatible, you can build the model using Shapefiles, DXF etc. It is also compatible with much mainstream design software such as Info works CS, Infoworks ICM, Civil 3D, Auto CAD etc...

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to design the Stormwater network for big township development with lesser time. It can generate reports, Quantity of materials and Pipe profiles can also be generated within no time. Bently has the huge network of the user community and most of the daily problems when designing storm or sewer network can be resolved just by asking the questions in the user community.

What Other CAD solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"StormCAD a drainage designing tool."

What do you like best?

The simplicity of this product is a amazing.

Very easy to create a profiles.

Though this you can trace your drainage sewer area. It also allows you to define hydrology. and i also like its visualization.

What do you dislike?

Not that easy to get used to StormCAD, but through training you can. The tool does not have export abilites to other tools like AutoCAD.

Recommendations to others considering the product

StormCAD may be very useful especially on big firms which deals with Drainage installation and designing of drainage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

StormCAD is very reliable tool when it comes to drainage designing, especially for Roadway drainage designs.

"Using stormcad to model closed drainage systems"

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity of it. Creating profiles and finding stats on the storm sewers is easy to do. And I enjoy being able to use it in MIcrostation as well. The project overall is effective at what it is billed at--sizing storm sewers effectively.

What do you dislike?

I wish things like spacing and the library catalog were more in depth. Some things like that in the program are almost 'too' simple. Having a greater library and being able to have a better way to space inlets would be helpful (like in Geopak Drainage where you can place a storm sewer on an alignment and the cross slope/profile slope automatically updates). I also wish it had an option to allow headwalls, as often there are culvert-type end sections connected to a storm sewer. This would help a lot to model the system as a whole. The project also tends to be buggy-much of the linework seems to be corrupted every once in a while, it's not something that makes it impossible to work with, but it does get annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend understanding basic hydraulic and hydrological concepts before using.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm being able to correctly size storm sewers for closed drainage. Usually this is done on highway projects. I benefited from being able to do calculations via a computer program and not by hand. Generally however, a product such as Stormcad is required to submit calculations, so this is a software option to use.

"Was great.. Needs update."

What do you like best?

The best thing about stormCAD would have to be its simulations. StormCAD can do simulations such as waterflow. This helps when visualizing drainage systems.

What do you dislike?

The user interface needs a serious overhaul. It needs to be modernized like the rest of the programs in this segment. Sometimes you wont know where to find stuff unless you already know where it was from using the software for sometime.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Update the user interface and you will be golden.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You are able to use the simulations to test your products for weaknesses and areas that need to be redesigned before sending it to production. This saves a lot of time and money from the bottom line.

"Design Engineer"

What do you like best?

The capabilities or the program are very diverse. Our company can do a wide range of design.

What do you dislike?

Some of the tools are difficult to understand how to use and take some time to learn. It would be nice if some of the tools were a little more straightforward and simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take your time to learn how to use the features,

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Detention design and it helps to shorten the design process.

"Clunky Software with Limited Potential"

What do you like best?

I like best that it has a ton of great simulation capability. It can do simulations like water flow that other CAD cannot.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the clunky and honestly outdated user interface. It could use a face-lift in terms of modern design.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommend the tutorials to take full advantage of StormCAD

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to simulate tests on my products in StormCAD. This lets me assess their potential flaws or strengths prior to physical construction.

"Novice StormCAD User"

What do you like best?

I like that StormCAD allows you to define hydrology through catchments or at an inlet. I also appreciate the hydraulic modeling it conducts and that it is user friendly.

What do you dislike?

I wish that stormCAD had export abilities to both MicroStation and AutoCAD. I also wish that StormCAD allowed the user to take a predefined cell and define inlet parameters to calculate capture efficiencies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
