Irrigation Auto Connect


There should be a way to automatically connect an irrigation outlet to any nearby pipe.


Since we often work on large complex irrigation systems, our workflow has been to draft irrigation lines as polylines first and get them all correct before converting them into pipes. The reason is that once pipes are created, they cannot easily be replicated through offset methods to show multiple pipes or precise locations. Similarly, we will have often already placed all of our irrigation outlets for the design...thus it would be awesome to select an irrigation head, or multiples, and tell them to auto-connect to the nearest irrigation pipe, or the irrigation pipe of your choosing. THis would autodraw the shortest possible lateral connection in between the outlet and the chosen pipe.


I have another very specific workflow example where this would be helpful, but I'll save that for later.
