AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volume Calculation For Faces Object?

Jan 9, 2013

I have a volume in my CAD file described by 3D Faces. Is there anyway to know what is the volume of this volume -that represents an open pit-?

Every time that I do a volume I do by the comparison of 2 surfaces but this is not the case now.

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 :: Volume Calculation Of Dirt Excavation

Apr 14, 2013

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.

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 :: Minimum And Maximum Elevation In Volume Calculation Summary

Jun 30, 2012

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create 3D Object That Gives Volume Info?

Feb 22, 2012

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Project Object To Surface / Volume Calcs

Jul 30, 2013

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?

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 :: SSA Storage Volume Is Double Of Pondpack Volume

Apr 24, 2013

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?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Pond Volumes Calculation

Jul 24, 2013

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.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Stripping Calculation In Surfaces And Corridors

Aug 8, 2013

I've recently started working with Civil2012/2013 (bit the bullet you might say).

I attended a course on civil about a year ago but it didn't cover all the bases.

My question: stripping calculation, is there a way fro civil to perform it automatically?

One way to calculate stripping (manually) is after i have all the tin volume surfaces, is to show the fill areas in the volume tables and then do the calculation myself.

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.

AutoCad 3D :: Draw Out All Faces Of 3D Object And Then Merge Them Together

Feb 25, 2012

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.

It is an area of approx. 246 this because the area is so large? I am not sure what the "E" stands for or the "+07" at the end....

AutoCAD VB :: How To Reach 3D Object Volume With Solid Selection

Apr 28, 2012

I can use SolidSelection.Item  for 3D object's handles and but I can't take 3D object's volumes with SolidSelection.

Then I can put object 's handles(1EE) to a collection.  Can I use SolidSelection to keep my 3D volumes values? All sub-structure of my program works with SolidSelection Object.

Volume Codes;

For Each tEnt In ThisDrawing.ModelSpace
If TypeOf tEnt Is Acad3DSolid Then
Dim tEntSolid As Acad3DSolid
Set tEntSolid = tEnt
tmpVols1.Add (tEntSolid.Handle & "/" & tEntSolid.Volume)
End If

I can't match with returned result of  these codes and SolidSelection.item(i)

For Each tEnt In ThisDrawing.ModelSpace
If TypeOf tEnt Is Acad3DSolid Then
Dim tEntSolid As Acad3DSolid
Set tEntSolid = tEnt
