Material Calculation Essentials
These tutorials will get you started working with the Autodesk Civil 3D tools for calculating and reporting material quantities and volumes.
In the following tutorials, you will learn how to use the material calculation tools:
Corridor Earthwork Volume tools compare an existing and proposed surface at specified alignment stations. An earthwork volume report lists the cumulative cut and fill volumes, as well as the incremental volume at each specified station.
Mass Haul Diagrams display cut and fill volumes along an alignment. Mass haul diagrams illustrate the distance over which cut and fill volumes balance, the volume of material to be moved, and the locations of borrow pits and dump sites.
Pay Item Quantities extract and report the cost of a project based on the quantity of pay items that are assigned to AutoCAD or Autodesk Civil 3D objects in the project.
