AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cut Fill Labels On Volume Surface

Jun 17, 2009

I need write Cut and Fill Labels on Volume surface in each 10x10 meters. Civil 3D can write Spot Levels on grid, but I need write Cut
and Fill values in grid area. Using Surface >Utilities>Bounded volumes I can get the values on selected closed polygon, but write to all is very long work. How to do write Cut and Fill labels on grid.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface With Specific Slope - Calculate Cut And Fill Volume

May 25, 2013

I use Civil 3D 2011 and I am new to it. I have created a natural ground surface from survey points. Now i want to create a finished surface with a specific slope in a specific direction at a specific elevation and then to calculate cut and fill volume.

I can create a flat surface at a specific elevation. How to tilt this surface to a specific slope along a specific direction.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cut / Fill Surface Labels - Color Specific

Apr 29, 2013

I followed the steps I found online to create color-specific surface labels (I assigned red to the cut elev and green for the fill elev.), but when I display them using the spot elevation on grid, I am getting both red and green elevations on same point (they are both fill elev or cut elev.), and why are there two elevations (cut-red and fill green) displaying?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Volume Surface To Show Elevation Banding With Cut And Fill Ranges

Nov 12, 2013

I am working on a large park project.  I have a proposed and existing surface.  I have created a volume surface to show elevation banding with cut and fill ranges.  I need to create a drawing for someone who doesn't have civil 3d showing all the "cut" areas.  They really want a boundary of hatch.  What is the best way to do this after I change my analysis to -30 feet cut to 0 feet cut.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Sample Line Volume Report And Surface Volume Give Different Quantities

Jun 18, 2012

I'm working with TIN surfaces, doing cut/fill comparisons for a surface mine.

My volume surface statistics show a cut volume of 5167.22 cy and fill volume of 8456.18 cy.

The sample line group volume report show cumulative cut of 5527.67 cy and fill of 8465.56 cy.

What could be some causes of this disparity. All reference surfaces are built from points and use a non-destructive boundary.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volume Bounded By Existing Surface And Design Surface

Dec 10, 2012

My goal is coming up with the volume bounded by the design surface and the existing surface. I don't have the design surface modeled yet.

Do i need to create alignment offsets?. Alignment 1 profile view is also attached. Then Alignment2.

What about starting with alignment1 profile view? Since I have created a polyline as the design profile ?

how do I shrink labels? Where is it in the settings ; the Align folder had been check.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volume Of Fill

Jan 7, 2013

I have an existing survey surface, and I want to know how much cubic yard of materials to fill up from the bottom to elevation 876. See attached image for detail. Here is what i am going to do....

- i will create a surface of the fill area (from bottom cotours up to el 876) then do a volume surface bwt existing ground surface and the new fill area surface to get the volume of it? Is this a right way to do?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Corridor Cut / Fill Volume Report?

Jul 11, 2013

I have created surfaces for my original ground and my corridor.  Both have appropriate boundaryies and the TIN looks good for both.  I am trying to create a volume report through Volume Dashboard.  I am able to create the volume surface with no issues but the numbers it comes up with do not seem correct.  I can see from my profile that there is a small fill but the software seems to create a fill that is almost half of all the material when my profile shows there is more cut.

I tried creating a sample line also shows the majority is cut. The only thing I can think is that there are about a dozen areas where my daylight does not work. how to do this volume correctly?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create Cut Fill Surface From Existing Surface

Mar 1, 2013

Im currently using an addon for Civil 3D called Novapoint. It allows me to create 3D models of surfaces made out of 3d faces and easily models cut and fill 3d-models for me.

The only thing i need to create a cut and fill model is one or several ground surfaces (existing ground, earth layers, rock etc. whatever i need) and a closed polyline/3Dpolyline that represents the level I want my cut and/or fill model.

I enter the spcifications I want such as; earth cut angle, rock cut angle, fill angle, select which surfaces i want to include in the model calculation and select the polyline.Novapoint then calculates the cut/fill model from the surfaces to the polyline and models the different cut/fill angles and gives me the results in a 3d-face model and a specification of the volyme of rock cut, earth cut an fill.

1. Novapoint is quite unstable and crashes alot

2. You cant create profiles out of 3d faces

3. Novapoint does not automaticly combine the start surfaces with the modeled cut/fill surface

4. A large surface made out of 3d-faces demands alot of computer power 

So I want to how I do the same that Novapoint does for me in Civil 3D? (I have access to Civil 3D 2007-2013 depending on which one you're using)I know I can take the 3Dfaces i created in Novapoint and make a surface in Civil 3D with them but I want to exclude Novapoint completely.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volume / Cut And Fill Area - Pavement Structure

Nov 13, 2012

Civil 3d project. My familiary with actual road construction is quite basic.

I'm at the stage where  good Civil 3d practices need to be employed when generating volumes. Attach are two files showing a road section with links and layers & also, the profile.

1. Like to turn off the links first of all and show labels instead.

2. How does the total depth of the gravel road (0.3' for gravel, 0.5' for aggregate base) factor in the profile view? What shown is the EG(in green) and FG,the top of the gravel road.

3. The cross section view: Three surfaces were used, the top of the gravel, the bottom of the base and the Existing ground, Is this correct?

4. Is there two sets of Volumes?  1. Cut and Fill areas,   2. Pavement structure: Volume of the gravel and volume of the aggregate base.

5.Refer to 4. So the Cut and Fill areas need to be done first, then the pavement structure, correct. ?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volume Calculation Method - Cut And Fill Are Not Even Close?

Sep 4, 2012

I'm to compare volumes in c3d to Inroads. My volumes are not matching ( cut and fill are not even close). Civil 3D uses  the average end area and InRoads uses 'triangle method' to calculate the total volume. How can I get C3D volumes to match InRoads which is verified correct?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Volume And Display

Jun 3, 2013

I have a couple of questions regarding surface volumes/analysis in Civil 3D 2014.  First, there used to be a way to determine the volume between two surfaces without creating a volume surface.  The command is _AeccReportSurfaceVolume, but I can't find it on the ribbons in 2014 to save my life.  Do I need to create a new button myself?

Second, and more important, dealing with the elevation analysis in 2014, and noticed that the colors reset anytime that the volume surface is rebuilt?  It has always been annoying not to save a color scheme, but at least once you had set it up, the colors stayed as the surface changed.  Is there a new setting that I am missing, or is this just a glitch with 2014?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Volume Analysis

Jan 3, 2014

I have a large 200+ acre site that I have created a volume surface and analyzed it using the elevation banding with color to show different levels of cut and fill.  The owner has broken this area into 10 different irregular zones.  Is there a way to do the elevation banding of a volume surface and have it color the individual parcels.  They don't all have to be at once.  I can do each one at a time and PDF the drawing.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Using A Surface For Volume Calculation?

Sep 25, 2012

I have run a volume between two surfaces, I need to further to break that new volume surface up to get volumes for each section. I know in microstation you can fence a volume surface and it will tell you the volume for that area. Is there a function in civil 3d that works like this. I know I can break it up manually and create new surfaces, I am looking for a time saving appoarch and trying to minimize file size.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: TIN Volume Surface Shading?

Feb 10, 2012

I have a tin volume surface comprised of proposed and existing models for a large earthwork site. I would like a detailed cut fill diagram for presentation to project owner. The site involves cuts and fills up to 30' depths. I would like to be able to represent not only cuts and fills, but give a visual representation of the depth of cuts/fills (ie darker blues and reds in the deeper areas, lighter in the shallow areas). Is there a simple way to do this without setting up 100 different colors of blues and reds in the volume surface properties analysis tab? I have seen contractor software that performs this function rather easily.

1) when I try to find volume of a cube 1*1*1

c3d volume report is 0.03 c.meter why?

First I make surface1 and import the 4 point with elevation 0 sec. I make surface 2 and import 4 point with elevation 1 then itry to find volume of this cube and my result is 0.03 c.meter why this happen. 

2) if this above method is wrong give me step by step guide of surface and volume.

3) how to find volume at particular level.?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Carriageway Surface Volume

Sep 10, 2013

I am trying to determine the volume of material (cut/fill) for a roadway surface in C3D 2013 using the volume dashboard.

I have created a fictional surface, basic profile and assembly so I can compare my calcs with C3D. After creating my surfaces and running the dashboard calcs, the program calculated the correct cut/fill volume. However looking at the surface in iso, I saw that additional surfaces were produced around zero elevation - refer to attached snapshot

In my actual model, I am well above zero elevation but these additional surfaces could cause problems on other projects.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Editing Surface By Volume

Jun 12, 2013

I have a pumped storage project where I would like to know the water level if a volume of water is removed. Is there an easier way to do this? Currently I have my drawing set up with my base surface and various top water level surfaces. I have been creating volume surfaces for each TWL and populating a spreadhseet that indicates how volume and surface area differs with TWL. It would be incredibly handy to work this in reverse ie ask the volume surface to lose or gain a required volume of water and update the TWL accordingly.
