Earthworks for assembly Sub-Base

C3D 2012 SP3 on Win 7 Pro.


I want to generate a report by sample line station that gives me the cut/fill quantities between my assembly(s) sub-base links and the existing ground.  I have section sheets cut with sample lines and the EG surface DREF'd.  Am I correct in assuming that you need to create the sub-base surface, (for every corridor, I have 18), to be able to get the cut/fill volumes?  The corridor is Xref'd into the section cut sheets, so no hope of generating a surface in the cut sheets from the corridor.  Can you have the EG surface defined in the Edit Material List and the sub-base as a corridor shape and get the cut/fill volumes?  I have tried and I get zeros in the earthworks report.  What am I doing wrong?

Apparently you cannot mix shapes and surfaces to get cut/fill volume reports.  Cut/fill is driven by surfaces.  You can get volume quantities from shapes.  Am I correct here?
