StormGenie® Automated Drawing Program
AutoCAD® Plug-In For Designing Cultec Stormwater Systems
Current version is: v. 2.6 released June 7, 2017
Please Note: The Recharger 902HD is currently not supported by the StormGenie. COMING SOON!
What is CULTEC StormGenie®?
The CULTEC StormGenie® is an AutoCAD® plug-in for designing CULTEC Stormwater Systems. The StormGenie generates project-specific AutoCAD drawings for CULTEC’s Contactor and Recharger Stormwater Systems.
The CULTEC StormGenie may be used in two ways. You can either design the system using the CULTEC Stormwater Design Calculator or you may use the HydroCAD Stormwater Modeling Software depending on your needs.
The CULTEC StormGenie takes information from whichever program you prefer and creates the proposed system in AutoCAD®. The generated CAD drawing is fully usable and may be modified and incorporated into existing plans.
The newest version of CULTEC’s StormGenie Automated Drawing Program also has drawing capability for CULTEC stormwater systems created in HydroCAD’s Chamber Wizard. It will be as easy as creating the system in the Chamber Wizard, exporting the HydroCAD file and running the CULTEC StormGenie in AutoCAD.

CULTEC StormGenie® User’s Manual
This Step 1 download is not mandatory.
A copy of this manual may be access from the CULTEC StormGenie ribbon within AutoCAD after the StormGenie program has been installed.
However, some clients may wish to have this documentation prior to downloading the StormGenie program to be able to review the steps.
CULTEC StormGenie Automated Drawing Program v. 2.6
This version has the ability to draw from both the Stormwater Design Calculator and HydroCAD.
The Stormwater Design Calculator is included in this download.
The HydroCAD program is not included in the Step 2 download.
If you don’t already have HydroCAD, you can download a free HydroCAD CULTEC Edition in Step 3.
HydroCAD is not required unless you want to use the “Draw from HydroCAD” feature.
A registration code is required to complete the installation process. It may take 1-2 business days to receive the registration code. You may close the registration screen at any time to work in other programs. Once you receive the registration code, go to run the StormGenie tool in AutoCAD, if the registration has not been completed, it will bring up the registration screen again so that you can enter the registration code to complete the registration process and begin using CULTEC StormGenie.
Free HydroCAD CULTEC Edition
This Step 3 download is not mandatory.
If you already have HydroCAD, you do not need to download Step 3.
If you do not have HydroCAD, you may download this free HydroCAD CULTEC Edition in order to use the “Draw from HydroCAD” feature.
With the CULTEC Edition you can construct basic watershed models of up to 5-nodes, including complete storage, runoff and routing calculations using CULTEC chambers. This edition only includes CULTEC products.
CAUTION – This edition will overwrite any other versions of HydroCAD you currently have. Do not download this program if you already own a full-version of HydroCAD.
We are able to assist you in your design by performing preliminary calculations and supplying AutoCAD layouts free of charge
