volume calculation

volume calculation

(OP)
I am looking for a non complicated and inexpensive volume calculation software/program that enables a volume to be calculated from an in-survey and an intermediated survey which overlaps a specific boundary, but I require the volume within the boundary.  at present I am using auto cad lt to give me the area's and then averaging the level to calculate the volume, I am aware I could use cross section however this is time consuming and I require a quicker solution from my survey data!

thanks

RE: volume calculation

I use ezysurf.  It will draw tins of the two surfaces and then compare the two to get the cut and fill volumes.  At $55.00 it is well worth the money.

i've had a quick look and it appears to be an add on for auto cad, i'm running auto cad lt, will the limmited autocad lt work with this program? i have emailed ezysurf for clarification on this matter, thanks for the help

RE: volume calculation

I don't believe it will.  LT doesn't or at least hasn't supported lisp fuctions.  There are some add ons that will allow LT to run lisp, but not sure if ezysurf will work.
