Autocad 2006+ earth works

Autocad 2006+ earth works

Does anyone know if you can compute earth work volumes using autocad 2006. I have just completed a survey of soil and muck shift. Can i compute the amount of muck taken off site using Autocad.? I know i can compute areas, but not sure about volume for something like this.

RE: Autocad 2006+ earth works

You can try www.ezysurf.com You will need to survey the area after you get the muck removed and then compare the two surfaces.

thanks mem1, will try it

I've done with ACAD 2000 using 3D.

RE: Autocad 2006+ earth works

thanks chicopee,

Could you explain you did it.

RE: Autocad 2006+ earth works

A little bit late for my response,however, here we go.
In my case, once I had my profiles at my station numbers,  I created prismatic volumes with the 3D commands.  These prismatic volumes were for material to be excavated and for fill. Then invoke the INQUIRY>MASS PROPERTIES of the 3D prismatic volumes.
I also did such prismatic volumes to determine amount of fill for AST's earthen dikes and dike volumes.
