An approach to calculating the average haul distance I suggest is to calculate the coordinates of the first moment of area of the cuts to determine the centroid of the total cut volume. Using the same code the programme could calculate the coordinates of the centroid of the fill volume. The distance between the two centroids would represent the average haul distance. Haul distance is one of the many considerations when estimating the cost of a project.3 votes
That is a good idea. We will add it in a coming version and we are developing something more advanced that hopefully will be out soon.
En la medida que los sistemas se adaptan a las necesidades de los clientes se pueden obtener aun mas beneficios.
Buenas seria bueno poder unir la altimetria de varios proyectos o de varias areas en un solo proyecto en optisurface. si existe la opción me la podrian explicar.
We have faced one issue where i hope you could help us in future. When forming the fields and filling up the ponds it is almost always they come back after a few passes and some rain or winter. Could you add to optisurface such a feature that it would be possible to determine the amendment % for ponds being filled. For example so that if we fill 10 cm then it would be actually 12 cm for those places. Typically when we cut there is though bottom soil on those places and they dont go anywhere, but next to it at the filled pond can really drop few cm.
We get quite a lot of feedback from customers when they assume it will be ready after first visit, but it is not, and need to go second time there.
Thanks in advance

Average haul length of the design would be great.11 votes
It would be nice to be able to draw in an area of interest and be able to see the amount of cut or fill in that specific area.1 vote
After we unlocked a design and closed the unlock window telling us how much credits are required, there is no way to see how much was used again. Would be easier for billing because sometimes credits used area and field areas aren't exactly the same.1 vote
Thanks for the feedback. We are working on something like that in V2.5.
With this we could set default legend info we like for cross and main slope for example, cut/fill legend, default section line colour, default exageration factor, etc... We could really personalize OS to our own needs and it would be faster than changing the info everytime we open a new field.3 votes
Thanks for the feedback. Is this the priority you want?
default cross slope legend
default mainslope legend
default cut/fill legend
default section line colour
default exaggeration factor
I like to be able to get the latest versions of programs. But in the past it was not possible to open Projects started in older versions. Also wood be nice to Migrate account balance to New version or new computer. Specially if old machine was scrapped and unavailable. other thing wood be nice to be advised of new Version available or check for updates Button.3 votes
It could be useful to have a window appearing when we leave our mouse on a section line for two seconds that would display name, main slope % proprieties, max chage % etc....7 votes
It will be nice to have a feature to report the % of land area at a given interval on primary slope or cross slope.

My CPU only works at about 30% capacity while calculating. Having to load a big file (~400 hectare field) often is cumbersome. Is there a way to speed it up?

I'd love to have a feature that enables me to switch from metric to imperial without having to start again from scratch.
