Nibal,
We have a few pending wishlist items that Drainage would fall under, but they are not implemented as of yet. What you can do is use our RefNote system to keep track of all your items. Using Length RefNotes for the pipe runs, Amenity RefNotes to assign individual blocks (like all drain basins, etc.), and Notation RefNotes to track any particular one-off items you need to call out. From here you will be able to run a schedule, listing all RefNotes and their QTY and descriptions.

Jake,
I saw this in a recent update summary:
HotFix: Grading Schedule, blocks and callouts appear correctly.
Will someone be producing a webinar or hot tip for grading and drainage soon that includes the most current LandFX grading and drainage information?

Steve,
We do have quite a few Power Tip videos that show off some of the newer features of the grading and site tools, so make sure you check those out. We will be working on a few other site features that we would like to complete before rolling out a webinar on the grading and drainage portion of the software. Do take a look at the Site and Grading features in our Documentation section though, as things are all listed out there.

Nibal,
I am not a superCAD user, I have tirelessly continued to read these forums, watch the suggested power tip videos, made lots of mistakes, and just try to keep learning and moving forward. All the tools to construct a drainage plan are available in LandFX, just takes some work. Jake and Seaweed got you pointed in the right direction. Here in Houston, TX drainage is a big deal, and I have used the awesome Ref Notes tool for so many things and it works great for drainage. I think I taught myself how to use Ref Notes for drainage before learned much about the landscape. I attached a couple of screen shots of a small residential to get an idea. Keep asking the questions, it's in that humility we continue to learn!
