  Elevation filter
Posted by: Cookiemonster - 01-11-2021, 11:29 AM - Replies (1)

Please can an elevation filter option be added to the software for when importing information from files. i.e. to be able to ignore all points/lines etc. with an elevation of 0 or above X can save a lot of time manually finding and editing these points after importing. Thanks

  Original and Progress Topo
Posted by: markovicb1 - 12-18-2020, 09:28 PM - Replies (4)


I am using, getting used to rather, Kubla Cubed 2019 Pro.  I have a 36AC plot of land.  Original data of the land was obtained by manually shooting coordinates.  I have approximately 1200 points in the original topo.  Work started to mine the dirt material for embankment construction of a levee.  Since work started, a drone survey was completed of the area to obtain progress volumes.  This is my question:

I will use the software to build the progress survey using a compressed drone fine of approximately 6000 points.  
I will use the original data, approximately 1200 points, to build the original surface.  
When I use the "feature surface" option to create these two surfaces and calculate the volume of excavation, does the software only triangulate between the 1200 points in the original survey?  I'm concerned that I might not be capturing all of the features of land that are present at the site.  

I hope the above makes sense to you professionals.  I'm just getting started with this but would love to keep going as the benefit is immense.  

Than you for your help.

  Image Not Uploading Properly
Posted by: earthtechcontracting_ - 12-09-2020, 12:43 PM - Replies (1)


Our proposed plans are currently not uploading onto the existing site plan properly.

When downloading the PDF plan it saves as one single plan, when it is uploaded onto Kubla its splitting in half as if they are two separate plans

any advice?

  Region naming
Posted by: Marcus - 10-10-2020, 01:08 PM - Replies (3)

I am in the process of calculating cut and fill and the client wishes for a breakdown of volumes to specific areas of the site.

I have used the Measurement panel to create Volume Regions. When I then create a Report for the Earthworks Estimation, Kubla splits the cut and fill volumes as required. I have renamed the regions, e.g. Road A, Road B in the Measurement panel so they are more meaningful. However, in the report the renaming is not applied, they still appear as Region 1, 2, 3 etc. Is this an oversight or something I am doing wrong? I would like the renaming to appear in the spreadsheet which Kubla produces.

Hope this makes sense. Thank you.

  LandXML Surface Boundary Being Ignored
Posted by: LGEO_2020 - 09-21-2020, 07:42 PM - Replies (1)

Hey all, I am importing a triangle surface in XML formal which was created in Civil 3D 2018. When imported into Kubla Cubed the boundary is ignored and there is cut/fill applied where it shouldn't be. I have tried creating a cropped surface and exporting that as a LandXML - that worked for my Existing Ground surface, but not the Future ground surface and I have no idea why. Any ideas?

Hi. Can you overlay two drawings. Eg a survey and a finished site plan. And if they are different scales can you make them the same scale so the overlay exactly. And can you do this on the free version please. Looks amazing by the way. Can’t wait to download it. But waiting for a new laptop.

  Strip Area Volume
Posted by: Chi_W - 05-20-2020, 04:20 PM - Replies (1)

I have used many other takeoff programs in the past. It is common that once an area with a specified subgrade depth is created, the cut/fill of the area will be shown automatically in the report.
It is similar to use the Strip method to create the region in this program; however, the volume cannot be shown in the report. A volume region will need to be created in order to compute the volume. This program tries to be precise not to have any region or boundary overlapping while other programs do not have this restriction which may generate a slightly different overall result when adding the areas together. This small margin of error is acceptable in terms of earthworks estimation. 

I have done two projects with this program, one has only 3 Strip regions and other has more than 20. The simple one I could fix the region error easily; but the complex one took me a lot of time to fix these errors even though all the lines are snapped together. I have ended up removing one Strip region.

Creating the volume region is also a challenge as mentioned in other Forum.

Please advise.
