Stupid Question Alert: What does CUT and FILL mean in VECTORWORKS?

Recommended Posts

This may seem a dumb question but I am working on a site model (DTM)...When I lower the pad the value for the fill volume increases.

When I raise it, the value for the cut volume increases...

Is there something I'm not getting?

So... If I have a cut volume of 11,

and a fill volume of 5,

I get a Net C&F Volume of -6.

My thinking is this means I need to take 6 units of soil away from the site? Is this right?

Many thanks,

Thanks Tamsin...

Yes. I am using 2011 and have a boundary.

I watched your webinar on DTM and it was great!

Could I ask another quick question please? If you have 2 pads does it do the cut and fill calculation for both pads?

Many thanks,
