I've read a few threads on this way back but cannot locate them. I have two surfaces and create a volume surface and it reported the volume as 493 cy. I then ran some sample lines at 25 foot interval and the total volume is reported as 964 cy.
I have a corridor with an associated sample line group, and I have produced some material volume tables to give me quantities for my corridor structures and cut/fill volumes. When I look at the material volume tables they are at a seemingly arbitrary stationing. The sample line group which the material volume tables are (supposedly) based on are on alignment L1000 and they run from station 1133+73 to station 1154+00 every 10 meters. The material volume tables show volumes broken down by stations starting at station 3719+58.66 and runs through to station 3786+08.92. It is sampling at a seemingly arbitrary frequency, there is absolutely no alignment in my drawing that has stations remotely resembling those numbers, and there is definitely no sample line group it could be using that samples an alignment or stationing anything like that shown in the materials volume tables. Here is a quick screenshot of what my material volumes tables look like:[URL]
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 group...it 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?
Just trying to bring in a Volumes Dashboard report from IE10 to Excel 2010 (it all worked fine until I my PC was upgraded from IE9/Excel 2007)
When the report is in IE10, I Select All and paste to Excel (as I always have done) and the numbers are not recognised as numbers (there is no convert text to numbers prompt) and seem to have a leading space which Find/Replace can't find and replace.
If I right click in IE10 and Export to Excel, most of the exported data has a weird character preceding it (but which can be found and replaced). What this character is and how to stop it appearing?

I am trying to get a material volume report for a corridor structure. The overall dirt cut fill is working, but the pavement and base keeps showing up as zero.
I started with the surfaces made, (perhaps that’s the problem,) I made an alignment, used an assembly, made a profile, and sample lines, made the corridor. The assembly draws in the cross sections, but the materials report shows zero in the pavement and stone.
I need to create an assembly that will give me the volume of a new shoulder along an existing road, as show in this picture.
I can easily make an alignment along my edge of pavement, and match the existing elevations, but I need to hold the cross slope constant AND the shoulder slope constant, and have the bottom of the shoulder slope to a target 2 feet off of my ROW.
I want to use it as my primary hydrologic and hydraulic modeler. It only makes sense. Well, I got the program to work and had things linked in and was able to route a storm through the network. But when I routed the storms, I had to model double the storage that i expected.
So I went back to the program I'm familiar with - Pondpack by Benltey - and designed the same system I routed in SSA in that program - and got the storage volume that I would expect for a site of this size - about 2 acres.
Is there possibly a setting that I'm missing that makes my outlet structures route slower or less than they should? Or is there some other reason that a system would give this kind of inflated need for storage?
I have an issue with using Bounded Volume or Adding a Boundary to Volume Surface things so bad... = incorrect volumes.. sometimes extremely incorrect.. I understand that the surface rectangle when a boundary is added but this could be horrible if not checked.
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?
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.
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.
I can see the area of a TIN surface no worries (under Surface Properties/Statistics/Extended), but want I want to get is surface area of a TIN volume surface where no "extended" option seems to be available to view the area information with this type of surface.
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.
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.
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.
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.
What I have is a tin volume surface. I am asked to label the points with the thickness of the volume surface.So where there was survey data on the top layer I need to have the width of the surface at those same points.
I'm working in Civil3D 2011. How to export the data from the surface volume tables to excel, or any other format outside of Civil3D?
Or maybe a better question: how to create a stage storage table automatically within Civil3D? The elevations table gives volumes per elevation class, but I'm trying to get cumulative volume stored below various elevations in my reservoir.
how to make a color rendering showing cut and fill on a volume surface. I keep reading bits and pieces of how to do it, but nothing explaining a step by step process. The terminology keeps referencing elevation ranges? I figured out how to create a volume surface, but now desire to print out a colored drawing showing the cut and fill areas.
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.
I created surfaces in Civil 3d 2011 for existing and proposed and I did a surface volume between them. Is it possible to create a specific contour in the volume surface that represents the fill volume elevation (daylight line I think)? My proposed surface is a flood water elevation and I need to define the boundary at that elevation.
