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 :: Tin Surface Legend Not Displaying

Mar 19, 2013

I am using 2013.

I have modelled my surface and have added 'elevations' to my model. When I attempt to add the legend all I get is the top headers; it is not populating the data rows.

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 :: 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?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: Change Default Table Style From Legend To Something Else

Jun 7, 2011

We own Civil 3d 2010 and are using the Map workspaces.

It seems Map is hard-coded to use the table style 'Legend' when inserting a legend table, yet you can modify the table style of the legend table after it has been inserted.

Is there a way to change the default table style from 'Legend' to something else?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Table Names In Header?

Jul 6, 2011

Is there a way for a table linked to a surface (ie. a volume table) to display the surface name in the header? There seem to be no options to do so and copy/pasting <[surface name]> into the header text box just returns a number, oddly.

I will have upwards of 40 surfaces and I don't want to have to manually edit each one!

Seems like a bizarre and simple omission seeing as the tables are dynamically linked to the surface anyway.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Structure Table That Lists Both Existing Surface Elevation And Proposed

Mar 5, 2012

So we have to adjust the elevation of hundreds of drainage structures from their existing elevation to the new finished ground elevation.I know we can give this information within the structure label by adding a reference surface but we would like to produce a table with three columns:

Structure No.      Existing Rim Elev.      Proposed Rim Elev.

How to produce such a table?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Can't Remove Legend Font Style Or Table Style?

Nov 5, 2009

There is a font and table style called "Legend" that is automatically generating and can not be purged.

I have looked through all the start up files, all the lisp files and can't find anything that would be creating them!

They appear in any file I open, new or old and even if I open a template file.

I have attached a file that should be empty but you will (or should) see both a font and table style called "Legend".

(FYI I am running AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 as AutoCAD 2010)

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Update Notes And Legend On Every Sheet

Jun 4, 2013

Civil 3D 2010

I posted this in Autocad General but was wondering if I can do something using C3D tables or labels...

Currently we have about 30 sheets where we xref the same construction note and legend.  The client is asking us to remove notes that don't apply to each sheet.  For example, sheet 1 will not need note 2, 6, 10, 11.  Sheet 2 will not need 3, 5, 10, and 11, etc.

Same goes for the legend-  they don't want to see something if it does not apply to the sheet.

Other than bringing in those notes and legend into each sheet and modifying it, I can't think of another way to do this.  Previously, if I needed to change the wording of note 4, I change it once and I'm done.  If I need to change anything now, I will need to open up 20 sheets.

Also, they want to remove the note completely, and not just cover up the note with "Not used this sheet."

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Legend For Contour Colour Scheme
