Irrigation - Turn Off Automatic Irrigation Network Update

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Is there a way to turn off the  automatic irrigation network update that occurs at every pipe connection? The disruption to workflow with having to wait 5-10 seconds after every single lateral pipe placement is getting to be quite tedious on larger irrigation plans. I cannot find any setting to disable this feature.

I would much prefer to lay out the lateral lines of a zone and calculate the pipes after I have everything laid out. I do not know if this is an issue with my personal workflow, which is as follows (short version):

1. POC Setup

2. Mainline Run

3. Design Zones

3. Head Placement

4. Lateral Line Placement

5. Valve Cluster Placement


Should I be approaching my irrigation drafting in a different order? Can I just turn off calculations until I am ready for them?


Thank you.
