I received a cross section file that was created in Micro Station and need to calculate the cut and fill of the project. There is no way to get the 3D files the cross sections were created from. Everything in the file is exploded and flat.
I was going to hatch under and above the existing grade to find the cut and fill and then thought about the scale of the cross sections. In model space the cross sections are 1=1 H and 1=10 V. When I do a hatch and get the area it is giving it to me way high. If I just divide by 10 I don't think that is right either since the hatch areas are very irregular.
My thoughts on how to solve.
Scale the cross section vertical down by 10 and don't change it horizontally. I don't know if this is possible.
Somehow set the horizontal and vertical scale and hatch above and under to get the areas. I don't know if this is possible either.
Solved! Go to Solution.
one way is
command block and after being one block modify the y scale to 0.1, then explode
... If I just divide by 10 I don't think that is right either since the hatch areas are very irregular...
As it is scaled vertically 10x, if we divide the area by 10 the result is correct.
