Site Model - 3D Cut an Fill Display is flat

Recommended Posts



Last few months the 3D Display option Cut and Fill of the Site Model is acting erratic. Instead of the usual 3D model it shows a flat surface.
OR am I becoming erratic?
Or is there something else going on?

Hi Carol.

The behavior you are seeing is typical of the 3D display for cut/fill. Instead of displaying the cut/fill coloration on the proposed surface, it actually flattens the shape of the site model, but creates a depression or mound where the cut or fill is calculated, respectively. So, the more cut in an area, the deeper the depression, and the more fill in an area, the higher the mound.


I too wish the site model display of cut/fill were displayed with the actual proposed site model surface, so your note reminds me to make the enhancement request to do so.


Thank you for bringing this up.


Best regards,

Thanks Eric! The reason I was wondering is because this behaviour is not what I thought I was used to seeing... Apparently it's either my mind or my eyes playing tricks on me... or wishful thinking taking over
