CAD conversion and pipe trace

In AutoCAD we have built a complex multi room multi floor building. The building comes into Arc and ArcScene as a multipatch. We also have a 3D polyline shapefile representing pipework within the walls and floors of the building. The end goal is to be able to calculate the depth of the pipe within the wall or floor, and to brake the pipes up and assign sections of the pipe to individual rooms.


Does anyone have any ideas?


How do you convert a multipatch in to a set of polygons representing floors, walls and ceilings? Assuming that this can be done, I should end up with polygons representing each side of a wall. How would I create another set of polygons representing the center of the wall?
