Once a corridor model is built, Civil 3D’s “Compute Materials” tool makes it easy to calculate cross sectional volumes representing cut/fill or structural materials. After the materials have been calculated, the “Generate Volume Report” command can be used to create a comprehensive table listing material calculations on a section-by-section basis.
That being said, a volume report is not the only way to view calculated volumes. Each cross section view can also display a table (or tables) that list the computed materials for that view. Even better, these tables retain a dynamic link to the model, meaning they will update whenever the design changes.
In today’s post we’ll explore a technique to apply dynamic volume tables to all section views within a view group. If you are interested, I’ve created a recording below that walks through the process…
