AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Get Volume Of Earth

Jun 4, 2012

I'd like to do a grading in order to get a volume of earth work needed.  It's a very easy proposed surface, but I've never done a grading before.  I have a surface that is basically a football field that is graded from one end zone to the other with a slight uphill grade.  At the end of the uphill grade is a berm the length of the endzone.  That berm needs to be higher, and the uphill grade from endzone to the other endzone needs to be flatter.  The dirt that comes out of the flattening will be pushed up on top of the berm on the opposite endzone to make the berm taller. 

The new surface should start at existing grade on the low endzone, go on .10% up to the other goaline, then on a 2:1 up to 24 ft above the low endzone elevation.  Think of a firing range where you shoot from the low endzone into a berm on the far endzone.  The berm isn't tall enough, so they need to find dirt from the surface to put on top of the berm.

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 :: Profile View Of Alignment In Civil D & Google Earth Varies

Dec 25, 2012

I imported Google earth surface (at eye alt 600m) to civil 3d 2012 and created an alignment of length 181m.

When I exported same alignment to Google earth , it showed the length as 190m ( the difference increases with increase in length of alignment) And also the profile view of the alignment in the Civil D & Google earth varies.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Export To Google Earth

May 9, 2012

Months back I did this project with multiple surfaces and exported them to Google Earth with no problem. Today, I'm trying to update a surface with some changes. After the changes, I tried to re-export it to Google Earth, but for some reason it's coming in really small. I have my units and zones set to what they have always been.The surface is highlighted in yellow, but it should take up roughly the size of the red circle.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Google Earth Units - Elevations Are Different

Jan 22, 2013

My drawing is set to state plane  and feet. when I import GE the elevations are different that those reported on the GE screen. For example at a given location GE reports 538 but the c3d surface  report 164 a factor of 3.28. sounds like a meter thing going on. is this normal?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Import Google Earth Image And Surface?

Nov 13, 2010

I am trying to import a surface and Image from Google Earth.  Basically my steps are as follows:

start GE and C3D find area that I need on GE and zoom in under C3D, insert GE Image and Surface (then it goes straight into select point, and rotation)

Like most discussions i've read.., the import slows down at 49%, and then it chugs for hours if I let it. So i have to cut the cord and re-start both programs.

I saw in a discussion that there are settings that we can change the rows and columns to something like 70x70.

however.... I cannot find where to update this.  I typed importgesurface, and clicked on the ribbon as well..., then tried to right click, but it does not take me to the settings. I also figured that I might have to run C3d as admin, but no luck either.

find these settings so I can change them to import a surface and image that is about 15acres?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Cut / Fill Quantities From Google Earth Surface

Jan 14, 2013

I am using Civil 3D 2011 for my job. I am trying to put together preliminary estimates and need earthwork qunatities. I have no issue importing a google earth surface. I import the surface and create a boundary. How do I calculate cut/fill quantities? I tried creating a finished ground surface then making a tin volume surface to compare the two. However, I do not know how to create a fnished ground surface. I have also tried grading in civil 3d. Cannot get anyting to work.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Google Earth Utilities With R2013 Products?

Apr 5, 2012

Now that details of the R2013 version of AutoCAD Civil 3D are public, I wanted to update you on the status of Google Earth import and export workflows. The following statement summarizes where we are:

Due to limitations on the use of the Google Earth API, AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2013 does not include API access to allow customers to import Google Earth imagery and/or surfaces directly into Civil 3D. We are aware of the importance of including preliminary surface and aerial imagery in your design workflows and are actively looking for an alternative.  However, we cannot share any specific information about potential future product enhancements. When appropriate, we will communicate technology plans via various channels including Autodesk Labs, Facebook, Blogs and the Civil 3D Discussion Group.

As noted above, we'll update you as soon as we can share information on technology plans that target the workflow of incorporating readily available image and surface information into your design workflows.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Volume From Surfaces

Sep 6, 2012

i'm jumping into 3d late in life...playing with volumes. i've created surfaces from aerial surveys and have saved the surfaces as separate files. i would now like to run volumes of the two as they represent the same quarry site from different years. it appears (?) i need to have both surfaces listed in prospector to run volumes. each separate file has its own surface listed. do i get (import?) the second surface drawing into one of the files so i have both listed and can run volumes? i see where i can create a surface from importing a .tin file...but i don't see how to export the surface as a .tin file.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Volume And Display

Jun 3, 2013

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?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Reusable Cut Volume By Station

Oct 22, 2012

Within my road corridor, I have one section where the excavated material cannot be used as fill elsewhere.  I see a place where I can specify a factor for reusable volume when I compute earthwork materials.  But it looks like I can only use 1 factor for the whole corridor.  Is there a way to say from Sta XX+XX to Sta XX+XX the reusable fill factor is 0, but the rest of the project it is something else?

All I can think to do is copy the quantity report to Excel and manually change the reusable volume in that station range to 0.  But, since the report comes in as just numbers (no formulas), I then have to enter all the formulas to recalculate the volumes.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Surface Volume Analysis

Jan 3, 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.
