AutoCad 3D :: Calculating Volume In A Basin?

Dec 23, 2013

I am currently still using AutoCAD version 2006. I have two lines with different Z coordinates. Is there a way to calculate volume in a basin?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Calculating Total Volume

Apr 11, 2012

I want to know if it is possible to calculate the water displacement volume of an assembly if it were immersed in water.

In other words,  I want to create a file in which ALL hollow spaces inside structural members, valves, pipework etc are assumed to be solid so that when that assembly is dropped in water, the total volume of water being displaced will be equal to the iProperty value for volume.  I know its possible to hole patch when creating a shrinkwrap,  but this is only effective for 'circular' hollow spaces and does not fill obscure or rectangular shaped empty volumes.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Calculating Volume From Corridor Models?

Sep 19, 2013

I've been learning civil3d for some time now and I really want to understand how the program calculates volumes from road corridors.

When the top code is used to create surface from a road corridor, the created surface coincides with the top of the road pavement (binder/wearing course), which is not part of earthworks.

How can I create a surface at the formation level so as to compute actual earthworks?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Calculating Volume Using 2 Existing Surfaces?

Jun 9, 2013

I have create my surfaces and now need a volume between to two surfaces.  I created the surface by using the Surface/Create TIN Surface tool for both my OG and the surface after material has been imported.  I have gone to the volume dashboard and it will not let me add existing surface. How do I calculate the volume?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Catch Basin Inverts Shown Incorrectly?

Jun 14, 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?

I'm no longer able to control the PP (monitor) volume using my computer volume controls. I've always controlled the monitor volume using my computer volume levels, but starting today, that has changed.
The volume is just playing at the level recorded with no way for me to turn down or up.I performed a disc repair and that didn't solve the problem.

AutoCAD .NET :: Calculating Angle Between UCS And WCS

Jun 3, 2011

A question regarding converting angles between co-ordinate systems in AutoCAD .NET.

Im creating my first little utility to form selected block attribute references into a nice neat list. The current version takes a selection of blocks and a list insert location and then moves the attribute references to the location and rotates them to WCS angle of 0.

I now want to expand the program to make it a little more flexible and allow you to form the list parallel to the currently selected UCS x axis (the i.e. and angle of 0 in relation to current ucs's).

I have managed bumble my way through and transform the attribute positions correctly to form a list relative to the current UCS but am strugling on how to work out in code what the equivlanent WCS angle value would be.

I have done some calcs using .net framework to calculate an angle between two vectors (see code extract below). But this introduces a small error into the angles (i.e. if my ucs is set rotated 45 degrees around the zed and i use the below maths, the resulatant angle is 45.0000002 when read in acad afterwards).

Matrix3d ucsCur = ed.CurrentUserCoordinateSystem;
CoordinateSystem3d cs = ucsCur.CoordinateSystem3d;

// the below seems to work by calugulating the angle between two vetrex using .net maths class but this introduce a small accuracy error. Is there a better way?

Double rotAngle = Math.Acos((1 * cs.Xaxis.X) + (0 * cs.Xaxis.Y) + (0 * cs.Xaxis.Z));
//set the attribute reference rotation to the calculated WCS radian rotation value "rotAngle" 
attRef.Rotation = rotAngle;

Im sure there is a better way built into the managed autocad wrapper using a tranform matix and the ucs vertex information but dont really know how to go about it. Any links explaining how to work with the UCS in .net.

AutoCad :: Calculating Area Of Floorplan

Nov 1, 2012

Any good tips when it comes to calculating the area of a floor plan? You are supposed to start measuring from the outermost part of the walls, but when I do that I run into trouble with the porch on the bottom of the drawing and the room on top left.

The problems are basically that the porch is not supposed to be included in the total area, and in the room on the top I end up measuring a small area twice if I start my measuring from the outermost part of the walls. This is not very well explained but I've drawn two red lines on the drawing to try to show where the problem areas are.

AutoCad :: Calculating Area With 2010?

Jul 15, 2012

When I am trying to calculate area, i got wrong answer. At very first i thought it calculates area with inches (iam in metric sys), but then i checked options and its answer should be in mm, but I am getting wrong answer. In my object (which is rectangular) there's many other things, like hatch, buildings and so on. Maybe this can abstract for direct answer, because when i draw just a simple square or rectangle.

AutoCad :: Calculating Total Area Of Windows

Oct 31, 2012

I have a building like this and it has a lot of windows.

I know how to calculate an individual window area by using 'area' or 'ls' command. But this is just partial drawing and the whole building has hundreds of windows and it will take forever to calculate one by one and add them together to get the total area. Is there any way to get the whole area easily?

windows are just rectangles (and solid hatch inside the rectangle).

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Calculating Average Parcel Area

Any quick way of calculating average Parcel Area?  I used to export to LandXML and do an area report in CSV.  That doesn't seem to be working for me when I export out of C3D 2012.

The workaround I found was to select all the parcels in Prospector, copy to clip board, paste in excel, find and replace "_Sq. Ft._" with 0, then do the average.
