Showing Elevation Figures in Cut/Fill Map

Last Updated: 16 October 2013          For: OptiSurface Designer V1.4 and higher

This article will discuss the steps in showing the elevation figures in the Cut/Fill Map.

Question:
I have a customer wanting to see a cut sheet like multiplane designs where it shows each cut and fill all the way across the field.  Is this possible with Optisurface?

Answer:
This is possible with OptiSurface Designer.  Follow the steps below to view the Cut/Fill Map with labels.

1.  Right click Cut/Fill on the Project Explorer and select Properties
    

2.  Tick ON 'Show Points', 'Markers' and 'Labels'.
    

3.  Adjust 'Label Size' as desired.

** If points are too close together, recalculate Cut/Fill Map, see next step. **

4.  Right click Proposed Topography in Project Explorer and select Recalculate Cut/Fill
    

5.  Adjust the grid spacing to be larger so points are not too close to each other.
    

Cut/Fill Map will look like this.


Note:
The same can be done with Existing and Proposed Topography by right clicking in Project Explorer and ticking ON the 'Labels'.
