Preface

Irrigation design is an exceedingly complex science that demands precision. In developing


Irrigation F/X, our irrigation design software plugin for AutoCAD, we set out to provide a
powerful design tool that marries unprecedented functionality with intuitive features and
full customization.

This guide will show you the available tools and techniques for creating an intelligent
irrigation system design using our software, including:
• Selecting and placing a water source
• Specifying pipe classes and types for your region and the needs of your site
• Creating an equipment inventory from a gigantic database of manufacturers
• Configuring and placing your equipment
• Sizing your pipes and checking for errors at the click of a button
• Performing automatic calculations to determine the necessary pressure and flow for
each portion of your system design
• Building a variety of irrigation schedules and reports
• Customizing everything from text and callout styles to layer colors and equipment
symbols

We don’t just simplify the principles of irrigation. We take care of the calculations and
other heavy lifting, allowing you to get back to designing.

You can also configure your layer settings, including layer colors, from the General Preferences.
See page 24, as well as our Customization Getting Started Guide, for instructions.

Irrigation-related objects, such as equipment and callouts, are all placed on specific layers whose
names begin with LI-. Each layer has its own specific purpose, and everything is placed on the
correct layer automatically. As a result, you have a level of fine control that ensures that all your
equipment is in the correct location and layer.
Start Your First Project 2

First, you’ll need to start a project, which will enable a connection between AutoCAD and the

schedule as an inventory of all equipment you’ve added.
Schematic Irrigation 8
Our Schematic Irrigation tool helps you calculate the size of your water source, form an initial idea
of what your flow totals might be, determine a watering window, and produce quick trade-off studies.
It’s a great way to estimate your system design’s potential needs before placing your heads.

Change one head into another by grabbing a “source” head and applying its
properties to a “destination” head.

Keyboard Commands
To speed up your workflow, use our keyboard commands
for placing equipment. To see the dialog box showing all
the keyboard commands (pictured to the right), press the
K key on your keyboard while placing heads.

Toggle When Placing Heads


Use the following keys to toggle between different options when placing heads:
• ~/`: Resize the coverage radius of a head as a percentage or distance.
• Q/E: Toggle to the previous/next coverage radius. (Example: 5’ 8’ 10’, etc.)
• Tab/R: Toggle to the previous/next available nozzle. (Example: Q H T F, etc.)
• W/S: Toggle to the minimum/maximum available coverage radius. (Example: 75% 100%, etc.)
• D/A: Toggle up/down in coverage radius size. (Example: 75% 80% 85% 90%, etc.). You’ll
toggle between distances or percentages, depending on what you’ve set with the ~ and ` keys.
• F: Toggle to a full/partial arc.
• C/V: Copy equipment along a polyline / line.

Snap Equipment to a Specific Angle in Your Drawing


Use X key to fire our Xhair Angle tool. The cursor crosshairs will “snap” to an angle in your drawing.

Click a polyline to snap to its angle, or


type your desired angle in the Command
line. Then place your equipment.
Circuiting 12
Group your heads into stations, or zones, using our Circuit tool. You can group similar head types,
plant materials, exposures, rotor types, arc types ... it’s all up to you.

up the flow of
everything in the
drawing.

Use the Head Tally to select


heads one at a time and calculate
their total flow.

Use the Uniformity tool to create a color-coded


analysis of the head coverage in your design.
Draw Lateral & Mainline Pipe 13
Our pipe drawing tools make piping incredibly simple. Just select whether you want to draw lateral
or mainline pipe. Then connect the dots – the pipe is a polyline that grabs onto equipment.

F/X Irrigation >

Select Draw Lateral or Draw Mainline, then click a piece of


equipment to begin piping. A yellow circle indicates a successful
connection. Keep clicking to keep piping.

Keyboard Commands
While you’re drawing pipe, you’ll see a list of keyboard commands in the Command line. Press any of
the following keys on your keyboard for even quicker piping:

• [Xhair angle]: Type X to fire our Xhair Angle tool, which allows you to “snap” the cursor crosshairs
to an angle in your drawing. Select an existing polyline to snap to its angle, or type your desired
angle in degrees.

• [Arc]: Type A to draw an arc of pipe.

• [Class]: Type C to toggle between the pipe classes you’ve added to your project. Different pipe
classes will be assigned different linetypes, and the length of each class you use will be recorded
separately. See page 5 of this Guide for details on setting pipe classes. You can also use the number
keys (1 through 9) to toggle to the corresponding pipe class.

• [Zone layer on | off]: Type Z to toggle Zone (Circuit) layers on and off. See page 12 of this guide
for details on our Circuiting tool.

• [Head autosnap]: Type H to toggle our Head AutoSnap tool on and off. When Head AutoSnap is
enabled, your pipe will connect to heads automatically as you pass over them – no need to click. It’s
a great way to speed up the piping process in projects large and small.

• [Toggle layers]: When drawing mainline, type T to toggle all non-mainline layers on and off.

• [Undo]: Type U to undo a pipe, unhooking it from a component or fitting you’ve clicked.
Check for Errors 14
Checking an irrigation plan for errors was once a long, tedious process. No more! With our error-
checking tools, you can scan your entire drawing instantly with the click of a button.

Our Verify Laterals tool scans your drawing for


F/X Irrigation > several common lateral piping errors.

Before sizing the mainline, use our updated Verify Mainline


tool to ensure that your system design is error free.
Size Lateral Pipe & Valve Schedule 15
Our instant pipe-sizing tools automatically apply the Hazen-Williams formula to your pipes based
on the performance data of your equipment. Size your laterals with a click.

F/X Irrigation > Select a valve to size only the laterals


connected to that valve ...

... or right-click to size all valves at a time.

When sizing one valve at a


time, use the slides to fine-
tune the Design Pressure and
Friction Loss for that valve.

When sizing all


valves, dial in the
Maximum Velocity,
Pressure Variation,
and Fittings Factor
for your entire
system.
F/X Irrigation >

Lateral pipe size callouts will appear automatically.

Once you’ve sized your laterals, place a Valve Schedule. Here, you’ll see
important information about all valve stations in your design, including the
types of heads connected to them, their size, flow, pressure required at the
valve and at the POC, and the precipitation rates of the heads on that valve.
Size Mainline Pipe & Critical Analysis 16
Sizing your mainline pipe is just as quick as sizing your laterals. Click a button, select the number of
valves that will operate at a time, and your mainline is sized.

F/X Irrigation >


Mainline sizing options are very
simple: Will one valve be running
at a time, or will you size all pipe
for a maximum flow?

With mainline, it’s all about


Velocity.

Create Flow Zones if you need to limit areas to


a flow lower than the maximum – like a small
green of a golf course.

Looped mainline calculations are all automatic!

When you size the mainline, you’ll automatically generate a Critical Analysis of your system design. This
report includes some extremely important data about your system, including available pressure and flow.

The Critical Analysis is a report that provides the flow and pressure statistics of your system design.

The most important item in the Critical Analysis is the Residual


Pressure Available, the last number in the analysis. If your system
has insufficient residual pressure, this item will appear as a negative
number. The maximum flow should have been controlled with the
Circuiting process (see page 12), and should not have been exceeded
if this process were completed correctly.

F/X Irrigation >

You can also place a Critical


Analysis in your drawing
manually.
Edit Your System Design 17
Once you’ve piped your equipment, you’ll inevitably need to make edits, delete components, and
move equipment around. Use our editing tools to make the necessary changes without losing your
connections.

F/X Irrigation >


Open our Highlight Station tool, then select a valve,
head, or length of pipe. Everything that’s connected
to the pipe or component you selected will be highlighted, allowing you to
verify connections.

If a piece of equipment isn’t connected to the station you selected,


it won’t be highlighted.

Delete an entire station – or specific items from a station, such as callouts, all
pipe, or pipe plus heads (pictured below).

What if you need to move equipment you’ve already piped to? Easy! Use this tool,
and maintain all your connections. In the example below, we’ve moved a piped
head. Note that the pipes stay connected to the head, and the pipe label remains attached to the pipe.

After making your edits, resize your laterals and then


your mainline. You’ll see a new Critical Analysis,
which will provide the pressure and flow stats you
need. And remember: You have our Verify Laterals
and Verify Mainline tools to help you along the way.
Pipe Labels & Valve Callouts 18

F/X Irrigation >


Pipe labels are placed automatically when you size your pipes.

Need more labels? Use our Pipe Label tool.

You can also use the Pipe Label tool to


move and delete pipe labels.

Choose whether you want your pipe labels


to include a lasso (as in the pipe labels
pictured on this page). Use the Pipe callout
lasso option in the Irrigation Preferences.
(See page 5.)

When you call out a valve, you’ll


enter a number for that valve.

If the number you entered is already in use for another


valve, you’ll have two options:
• Duplicate: Use the same number for both valves.
• Increment: Assign this number to the valve you’re calling
out, and assign a new number to all valves with an equal or
Select your Valve Callout style from the higher number.
Irrigation Preferences. (See page 4.)
Irrigation Schedule 19
F/X Irrigation >

Catalog all equipment used


in your project by running an
Irrigation Schedule.

We recommend placing an Irrigation Schedule with the Entire Palette option checked after you’ve
added all your equipment to your project but before you’ve placed any equipment in your drawing.
You can then use this initial schedule as an inventory of your equipment for your reference throughout
the life of the project.
Watering Schedule & Runtime Schedule 20
F/X Irrigation >

The Watering Schedule displays the time required to apply a certain


amount of water on a weekly basis. It’s a valuable resource for systems
with one valve running at a time.

If your system will run multiple valves at a time, we


recommend generating a Runtime Schedule, which
mimics what a “smart” irrigation controller will do.

The Runtime Schedule calculates and records


precipitation per day of watering. It also groups valves
together (if you want) and determines the most efficient
runtime representing the capability of the mainline in
your system.

Remember: You can get a preliminary estimate of your system’s required


flow and precip rates using our Schematic Irrigation tool before you even
place a head or lay a pipe! (See page 8.)
Irrigation Power Tips 21

Do not copy valves or heads after piping.

When you copy piped equipment, you’re also copying the reference to the linked pipe. As a
result, the copy will think it’s also connected to the original pipe!

Use Schematic Irrigation.

It’s an amazing tool to calculate the size of the water source required for your system,
determine your watering window, and quickly produce trade-off studies.

Highlight Station is your best friend.

This tool doesn’t just highlight all connected pipe and heads. Try it on a segment of mainline,
or on any unpiped equipment. It will highlight all similar instances in the drawing. If you can’t
locate a certain head, are trying to troubleshoot a mainline connection, or want to query the
flow of what you have just piped, leave it to Highlight Station.

Velocity is everything.

The amount of water flowing is the given – that is, the amount that each sprinkler and
emission device will consume at the desired pressure. Therefore, the only variable is the
velocity: Delivering that given amount of water at a high velocity will allow you to use smaller
pipe but will also generate an incredible amount of pressure loss due to Friction Loss (water
is really heavy!). Likewise, reducing the velocity will require larger pipes to move the same
amount of water but will use less pressure – and be gentler on all your equipment.

Irrigation tools can accomplish multiple tasks.

The Valve Schedule can colorize all circuits. Verify Laterals can also check for overlapping
pipe. Verify Mainline deletes errant pipe fittings and callouts, reminds you to place a
controller, and ensures that valves are connected, have their lateral pipes sized, and are called
out. Pipe Label not only places labels but can also move labels, slide them along pipe, delete
labels, or move equipment along with its connected pipe. Delete Station can delete lateral or
mainline pipe, and it also has options to delete only pipe callouts, only the pipe, everything
but the valve, or everything completely.
