Hi, so here's my problem, i have lots of points taken on the field that represent portions of lands where we had to fill with top soil. I need the area of those portions in square meters. My problem is that i can't use survey figure or parcels because it gives me a 2d surface area... and i need the 3d surface area.. there's not a lot of difference between one protion... but i have like over a hundred little patches.
Is there a way to get those area quick and easy without having to build one surface for each of them and going to the stats screen ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have no Civil, but...
If you create a big C3D surface passing thru the points, then you explode it, you'd get a bunch of 3D faces.
And every single 3D face could be querable with the _Area command.
Anyone can check this technique out..?
How would i do that ? I've create a big surface using my points and without a lot of editing, i can't get the right boundaries for each portion of land.
If they are surfaces, both 2D and 3D areas are a part of the statistics from the surface properties.
Can't open as am running C3D 2012. Here is a clip of what I mean.
I do know about the 3d area of a surface, what i want to do is get the surface area of multiple portions of a survey without having to create a surface for each and one of them... In the pictures red circles are some of those area i need... i used to get them in simple 2d area with a survey figures or a pline around them, but we recently had some difference with one of our sub contractor on a project with big slopes.
Sorry for the english... not my first language
ohhh sorry ! i don't know if you will be able to understand how parts are seperate due to the fact that my surveyor didn't use codes to process lineworks. Anyway here it is !
