Hi
I am new to Kubla.
Wondering why my cut volume is showing as a 13 digit number- the actual volume is 8,984m3. see attached screen shot.
When I use the measure tool the scale is correct on the drawing.
Thanks

  Break Lines Again
Posted by: KevinD - 05-05-2019, 03:51 PM - Replies (1)

Hi all,

I'm setting up the existing features of a site I'm working on (Outline. Contours, points and breaks). I note that it appears to me that the option to create break lines "at crossings" has been taken out of the program and now the only options are to add them from a file or manually. The manual option is straightforward enough, although I note that if you don't add more than 2 points the triangulation will ignore them.

My problem with the use of breaks is this:

On my large site plan I have a 4 existing large buildings which are all complete to at least their ground floor level and I know what those ground floor levels are (FFL ranges from 9.45 to 11.80), plus a lot of other 'physical' features (e.g. transformer vaults and concrete pads) from the previous contract.

I have lots of contours and elevation points to work with (in fact the site is relatively flat, having been partially leveled under an earlier contract). However, what I don't know (for any of the buildings or other features) is the actual ground level at the point where ground meets the building/feature. All the surveyor has given me is the FFL or the level on top of the feature (and some of these features are raised well above GL).

And so my questions are:

  1. when creating a line break do I use the GL at the point where the ground meets the feature or the level of the 'feature' itself (e.g. the FFL, the top of the transformer vault, top of kerb etc)?
  2. if I have to use the ground level when creating a break, but I don't know what the GL is at that point (even though I know the level of the 'feature'); because the software will not interpolate this level for me, what would you recommend I do?
  3. is there a case for saying I have to use two breaks? One to break based on the GL and the other for the 'feature'? - take for example the case of a raised roundabout, around which I placed a break based upon the GL at the base of the kerb. I also have one point level that defines the level of the ground for the roundabout itself. Do I just add that level to my model and let the software work things out or should I be adding a second break around the feature based upon this level?
Thanks

Kevin


  [HELP] 2019 Crashing at outline creation
Posted by: conradccb - 04-30-2019, 12:42 AM - Replies (2)

Hi all,
My Kubla 2019 keeps crashing when trying to apply creation of a Manual (but auto calculated) outline of Design Contours.
The design contour has ~4000
It has an Existing surface uploaded via DXF. 
This is the point before it closes. Once I click OK, the program just disappears.
Note it also crashes if I manually draw a smaller area (jsut around the lower basin).
Any ideas?

  XY Offset Suggestion
Posted by: TimO - 04-23-2019, 01:45 PM - Replies (2)

Good afternoon All,
I'm currently working on a road project and the drawings only show a finished plan view, but I need to prepare a cut and fill calculation to include a 1.1m offset outward of the finished surface edge. 
For example the road is 7.3m wide but the width of dig would be 9.5m.
Is this possible with the current version, and if not could I possibly add it to the list of possible future inclusions.
Kind Regards
Tim

  Kubla Cubed 2019 Released!
Posted by: Ted Woods - 03-20-2019, 08:47 AM - Replies (2)

It's finally here! The long awaited Kubla Cubed 2019 has been launched with a host of new features and improvements.  

The biggest visual change in the new version is the addition of a new "Measure" panel which will provide a selection of measuring tools (Counts, Lengths, Areas) which have been frequently requested by our QS users.  Other enhancements include:

  • Volume Regions (report the cut\fill in different regions of the site on a single phase) 

  • The site plans in the main window so you can align site plans with reference to each other.

  • The feature surface take-off in the main window so you can align things together.

  • Support for 'floating points', in the explicit outline and break-line definitions.  Fill in the points you know and the program will calculate the others automatically.

  • Edit Menu -> Copy\Paste.

  • Edit Menu -> Point Snapping that allows snapping to boundary lines and grid lines.

  • Import\Export support for the DWG file format, also direct copy\paste of elements into the take-off window from CAD.

  • An 'Off' option for earthwork element side batter allowing totally vertical side slopes (No more entering 1:0.01 to get an approximation).

  • Phase drag & drop functionality.

  • Cursor reporting of cut\fill\existing\proposed level in the 3D view.
If you are a Kubla Cubed Lite user you can download the new lite edition here.  For Professional users with a subscription the program will prompt you to upgrade the next time you launch the program.  Perpetual users can contact us directly to get an upgrade quote.

  Calculation Data Has Disappeared
Posted by: conradccb - 03-18-2019, 06:01 AM - Replies (3)

I purchased kubla cubed pro last week to measure a job I am currently working on.

It was going well, and I had calculated a lot of cut/fill data (see prev saved shots below).


I went back in to the file today and the cut/fill data has gone. The shapes all still show in the list, but the calculations and re-levelling has all disappeared (see below). It is only showing Existing conditions.
 
What has happened and how do I get it back? One day away from a deadline so would love to get a solution!

  Is Kubla the right tool for me?
Posted by: Bushman - 02-14-2019, 12:25 AM - Replies (5)

Good morning.

I was hoping to ask a couple of questions in order to see if Kubla is going to solve my needs.
Feedback would be much appreciated, or would you suggest I contact support rather?

The basics it seems to do, but as I only tried the free version for a short bit, I would like to know if it can support the following:

1. Import and join multiple PDF's in order to do a road takeoff

2. Can it do boxing out of the road pavement?

3. Can I import or create the geotech info of different layers and types of earth and then report this when doing the cut calculations. In other
    words if I need to know the volume of sand, clay, rock etc that would be excavated.

4. When I create a pad, the software then ads a cut/fill batter. Can these batters be changed manually and be of different slopes. Sometimes you have slope of 1:2 at the
    north part of the pad and a 1:4 slope at the south part of the pad.

5. Can I create and export a rendered model of the job into either a .jpg or even better yet, in a video format like .avi or .mov?

Also, If I rent the Kubla software monthly, is it on a month to month basis, or is there a minimum notice period that have to be given if the software turns out to not be what I am after?

Thanks in advance and I do apologise if many or all of these questions might have been asked before.

Regards

  Cut and fill depth categories
Posted by: Marcus - 11-14-2018, 11:11 AM - Replies (4)

The NRM2 (RICS new rules of measurement) requires that:
1. excavations be separated into that <2m deep, 2-4m deep, 4-6m deep, etc
2. filling be separated into that <500mm and that >500mm deep

Is there any way that Kubla could be developed to separate the cut and fill into such categories?

Thanks
