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.
volume dashboard on which method of calculating is based. Why sometime are different, huge differences between counting volume based in "computer materials" which of 3 is the best? for calculating? I am using very often average end area, is that correct?
how to calc dirt quantities in Civil 3D. Not just on roads, but say you have a small mountain of dirt that needs to be hauled away, and the contractor asks if you can quickly tell him how much dirt is there. And subgrade quantities for pads. Things like that.
First off, I'd need to learn the correct terminology. Knowing what to call stuff can at least make you sound less stupid when you ask a question.

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?
What do the data in the summary of volume calculation mean? In LDD, typically the minimum and maximum elevations are within the range of elevations where the volume is being analyzed. In my current vol calc summary it shows something that really makes me frown, e.g, min elev of -26.00 and max elev of 752. I have checked all the proposed elevations and the minimum is 720.
I created an enclosed "object" adding break lines to two different surfaces.
The blue surface shown on the attached drawing is a set of break lines added to "Surface A" and then the red is the other set of break lines added to "Surface B". I have already generated the volume enclosed within the surfaces by doing a surface to surface volume calculation.
My Question:I want to combine the enclosed volume created by Surface A & Surface B into a 3D "Block" that give me the volume information.
see attachment (object viewer capture). The top surface is my OG, the bottom surface is the bottom of excavation for a building. I want to project the perimeter of the building footprint up to the OG surface at a 1:5 slope. I remember in LDD the perimeter of a building, berm, dam, ditch...could be projected to the OG with specific slopes and then you could create a surface with the projected lines and do a volume calc. between the two. What is the procedure to do this in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012?
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 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'm new in civil 3d road design so my question may be basic.when i prepare a corridor and proceed to get cut and fill it appears as zero.i think i made some mistake at a stage when in section line we decide surfaces..step wise from section line selection to cut/fill calculation also give me the general concept regarding selecting surfaces during cut/fill volume calculation?
I have a manure storage pond that I am trying to figure out the total storage volume for. It has 2.5:1 Side slopes and a 10 foot wide ramp at 10:1 entering the pond to the floor bottom. I am trying to figure out what the volume of this pond is. What is the fastest and most efficient way to get this volume? I do not want it compared to any other surface such as existing ground.
In hydrographs, SCS method, the basin slope is needed for the the calculation of the time of concentration. What is the method for the calculation for the basin slope ? If we have a 3D surface is there a tool in autocad to calculate that automatically?
i downloaded a DWG from the subzero refrigerator website and i saved as a dxf and tried importing into cabinetvision and it says there is 21000 faces and takes a while to load and slow my computer down, is there anyway to reduce the number of faces?
i have a 2012 version of autrocad and i have a problem with my 3Dobject settings.
when i move my cursor over any object (eg:box) placed in SW iso view,I cannot see the bottom face of box neither the back or right side. The object should become transparent when i move my cursor over it,but instead the object is purely solid.When i want to shell box from bottom it becomes a problem.
Is it easier to draw out all faces of the 3d object and then merge them together later on or is there a method that allows me to be able to dimension and extrude my object as I work from the 3d space?
Say, I created a square and extruded it into a block. Then I want to look at one of the sides and poke 3 holes in it. My problem is I cannot use annotate to change the geometrical constraints on them, like if my circle is out of place or if it is too large or small.( or at least they don't show up for me.)
I'm learning about the UCS system but I thought if I moved the UCS system to the face I want to draw on and change from 3d modeling back to 2d annotation I can go ahead and annotate from that face of interest.
I was just wondering why when I try and calculate an area using a polyine, I am getting a readout of 1.80401967E+07, when I have it set to give me the calculation in square feet? It is an area of approx. 246 Acres.....is this because the area is so large? I am not sure what the "E" stands for or the "+07" at the end....
With command massprop I can get many interesting data about 3d object, but where can I set material that my object is made of. Lets say I need to calculate volume and mass of my object which is made of aluminium, what are my options?
