Volume calculations of excavations

Post by landmeterbeuckx »

I want to calculate volumes of excavations but these are tedious in civil3d. Especially because there are some gaps in the bottom of the holes.

Do any of you guys have a solution or workflow for this? I have pointcab, it works with that but only if the scans are without gaps.

Easy one to do in SCC Lieven, your welcome to borrow a fully functional trial license for this job if it would be of any help. Video below is a couple of years old and could do with updating but gives a good idea of how to do this using both prismoidal and sectional methods.
