AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Get Cut Volumes For Areas Greater Than 15ft Of Cut For Project

Mar 14, 2013

I am trying to get the cut volumes for areas that are greater than 15ft of cut for my project. We know that we will be able to get the top 15 feet with heavy equipment but will be drilling and blasting anything greater than 15 feet of cut. This is a different pay item, with greater cost so we need to quantify it.

I've got a composite surface that graphically shows me the elevation bands so I can see the areas that are greater than 15 feet but I'm not sure how to quantify the volumes.

Currently using C3D 2012 with the volume dashboard extension. Have 2013 installed just haven't jumped over yet.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Volumes In Specific Areas

Apr 16, 2013

I have a 100 acre park that I am doing earthworks.  I have 1 proposed and 1 existing surface.  The park is now broke into 5 different areas and I need to get cut and fill for each area.  Is there a way to do a volume report for a particular area?  I could define the area with a polyline.  Or do I need to copy the proposed surface and start chopping up into 5 areas?

VideoStudio :: Creating / Saving A Project At Greater Than 30fps

Mar 25, 2012

I am trying to output a project at higher than 30fps and I am failing miserably. My camera can create 1080 mp4 files at 30fps or 720 mp4 files at 30 or 60fps. I want to creat a video using 720 at 60fps (or near to it).

If I load a 60fps clip and play the clip it runs at the original frame rate. If I play the project however, it plays at 25fps. I have tried to change the project properties, but I cannot select anything higher than 25fps in mpg (or 30fps in avi). Likewise, when I create a video file I am stuck at the lower frame rate. Although I am happy with the 1080X30fps clips and projects; it defeats the object of having a faster camera.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Eliminate PIs Greater Than 20°s

Jun 11, 2012

I had a request come in this morning to generate a spread sheet with all PI's along a route with angles greater than 20°s.  Using Civil 3d 2011 I thought the PI station report or any of the reports for that matter would tell me the turned/deflection angle for each PI. However, I have discovered I can get coordinates, bearings etc. but no angles. How to spit out a PI report showing the turned angle for each PI?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: HydraFlow Warning - Outflow Greater Than Inflow

Oct 30, 2008

When I try to run my hydrographs through a pond I get an error stating something to the effect of: Outflow greater than Inflow on Hydrograph 6 for the 50-yr storm.

How can the outflow be greater than what is flowing into it? How the program can calculate this.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Composite Volumes

Jun 29, 2012

I have a question concernig a wrong result of computed volume.

EG surface with all EG points H=100.00m

FG surfase, created by FL-Square 100x100m H=101.00m, added to FG surface as breakline.

The Result-Fill=9149.59???

Why not 100x100x1=10 000???

P.S. EG points at above example were around 80, randomly spread at area say 150x150m

When I deleted 76 and moved remainig 4 at the corners of the square, the result is OK 10 000cu.m

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volumes Along An Alignment

Mar 13, 2013

I am trying to find an easy way of calculating the volumes I have been asked to do. I have a road, with an alignment created along the centreline. I have created a finished surface which incorporates the cutout for the boxing, and I have been supplied with a surface of the natural (original state) ground.

What I have been asked to do is calculate volumes at either 10m or 20m chainages (station).

Obviously, I can create a boundary, and then shift the boundary to where I want the volumes to be, but this road is 3km long, resulting in calculating 150-300 different volumes. The road is not a straight line either and includes a number of bends.

Is there a quick way of calculating this? Or do I need to use the boundary option?

The way they would normally calc it is to add all the details from the cross-sections into an excel sheet, and makesome complex formulas to figure it out. Even doing the boundary method is quicker than that.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Calculating Volumes Between 2 Elevations

Nov 20, 2013

We have a good size channel and the section for the channel varies quite a bit.  We want to find the volume excavated in the channel between 2 elevations (it is the area of sand per the goetech report)?  A template was not used to create the channel surface, breaklines and gradings were used.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Inaccurate Grading Volumes

Aug 29, 2012

I have noticed that the value I get when I use the surface volume comparison tool or look at a graded item in the grading group properties box is different than if I calculate it by hand and the discrepancy isn't even consistant.  After spotting this problem in a job I am working on graded two simple ponds to check this.  The first one is 100' x 100' and 5' deep w/ 2:1 side slopes.  Calculating the volume by hand I get 1500 cu. yds but the grading group properties come up to 1506.17 cu. yds.  The accuracy is off by less than 0.5%  The second pond is 100' x 100' and 2' deep with 3:1 side slopes.  The hand calc gets me 654.52 cu. yds. and the grading group properties reads 655 cu. yds.  This discrepancy is closer to 7%. I really need to know if I can trust the volume tools in the program.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cutting Volumes Along A Set Line

May 1, 2013

I am attempting to take two surfaces and cut straight down through a set polyline and get the difference between two surfaces.  Do i want to use the bounded volumes to do this? Or can i simply create two surfaces and and use the analyze/volumes tool and just select the two.  I would then add the boundary to each surface to limit the data.

My concern is since the two surfaces do not meet along the edges which will cause the math to be off.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volumes / Grading And Surfaces

May 30, 2012

I have an existing topo surface created as well as grading for a proposed elevated pad of earth done in civil 3d 2013. I simply want to calculate the cut and fill quantities. I created the grading with automatic surface creation checked on. When I use volume tools to see what the quantities are, it says 0.0 for both cut and fill.

I created another surface (TIN) and pasted the existing topo surface and the proposed grading surface into it and I couldn't get any quantities.

I created another surface (TIN volume) and set the base surface as the existing surface and the comparison surface as the surface created from the grading but again could get no quantities.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Determining Dam Permit Volumes?

Jun 1, 2012

I am looking to find out if the is a way of generating a stage storage table or volume table showing only the volume in the pond from the lowest intersecting existing ground contour to the top of the pond (to determine what would spill out of the pond in case of a berm failure) and if Civil 3D could make the determination of where that intersecting point is.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Comparing Multiple Surface Volumes

Oct 18, 2012

I have a big hole in the ground in my model.  Its easy to get the volume of cut with C3D.  But I have a topsoil layer, weathered rock layer and then solid rock, I basically need to break them down into different volumes.  The way I would normally do it is calculate the topsoil, then work out the weathered rock and minus the topsoil, then for solid rock cut I minus the topsoil+weathered rock.  I have attached the 3 volumes I need for info.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Figure Multiple Volumes From Two Surfaces

Sep 26, 2013

using CIvil3D to figure volumes.  I have a very large aerial topo from a couple years ago to compare against a topographical survey I completed this year.  No problem creating surfaces. 

Question:  In the topo's, I need to get a volume from two different area being a fill area, the other being the borrow area.  Don't want any volume data throughout the rest of the site.

Do I just create one large surface for each topo and designate boundaries somehow?  Or do I need to create multiple surfaces for each topo?  If this is the case, will I need to make sure any breaklines, etc. don't cross from one area to the other?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volumes From Surface Legend Table

Aug 21, 2012

I have created a volume surface and associated surface legend table using the cut/fill parameter.

The volumes and areas don't seem to add up, take Cut 2 as an example only if the area of the previous (cut 1) was added could this be possible. There is lots of speculation in our office like does the fill work in reverse?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Calculating Volumes With Out Of Date Surfaces

May 9, 2013

I have been provided a file with a surface, however I have not been provided with the point files referenced to define the surface.  As a result, when I try to calculate the quantities in the volume dashboard using a volume surface, I get the error that the surface is out of date.  Is there a way to calculate volumes with an out of date surface?

I am trying to calculate the amount of material required to be cut when creating a flat bottom ditch.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volumes Dashboard Sort Columns Alphabetically?

Is there a way I can sort the columns in the dashboard alphabetically?  Normally you just click the title in these windows to toggle the way it sorts it, but you cannot do that with this tool.  Its making my cut/fill report look messy, as the surface volumes are not in any order.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Widen Roadway Through Some Mountains - Corridor Volumes

I'm working on a project to widen a roadway through some mountains. The problem i am having is getting the corridor to apply to a future surface so that i can determine the volume difference. my profiles show there should be some cut and fill, but i cannot get the model to reflect this. when i try to preform a bounded volume i recieve a "the surfaces do not overlap".

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Program Acts Funny When Close Volumes Dashboard

Oct 9, 2013

Whenever I open the Volumes Dashboard in a drawing and then close it, my cursor and my WCS compass start blinking erratically, and the program seems more apt to freeze up when I try to do other things from that point on, especially if I try to move to a drawing in another tab. If I bring back the volumes dashboard, it's fine again, but then I've got the annoying outlining of my volume surfaces that I don't want. how to handle this? Is it just an unavoidable glitch in the program?

(I'm using AutoCAD Civil 3D 2014.)

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Calculate Catchment Areas

May 1, 2013

Trying to calculate a catchment area to allow me to size some culverts using Civil 3D 2012 Sp#1.

" The specified location results in a Catchment with no area."

After sitting for 15 miutes I keep getting the above message.  The surface is huge and there is an obvious catchment area (or I think it is obvious).  The surface was generated from contours and cover an area of approx. 8Km x6.5Km but the catchment ares should be around 15-20% of that area.

I tried another one upstream about a Km and it worked fine.  So the one I am doing now should encompass the upstream area as well as from that point downstream to the Discharge Point.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Identifying Areas Of Widening

Jul 13, 2013

I'm working on a windfarm access road (5m wide with widening at bends to 8m) and I need to identify the areas of widening.

I've got the centreline alignment and created the 2.5m offsets to each side. I have also created widening on the insides of the bends using the widening tools and used a linear taper at entry and exit. I now need to hatch up the portions where the road has been widened to demonstrate compliance with the specification and the only easy way I can see is to export to autocad and use the hatch tools (not tried to hatch between alignments).

Whilst this works it isn't dynamic so if the alignment is adjusted the widening alignments are also moved but the hatching remains.

the corridor definition under SURFACES specifies top links for both PAVE1 and SUB-BASE surfaces, but they appear to ignore that and cut across the road (see graphic) making a mess of it

do I need to add a link code to LINKOFFSETONSURFACE subassembly?  other work-around?
