  Cut and fill depth categories
Posted by: Marcus - 11-14-2018, 11:11 AM - Replies (2)

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?

In subscription plan noted that "can be installed on two devices". 

Is that mean we can work on two computer simultaneously with 1 user license?

  Turn off shading for levels
Posted by: kolney - 10-03-2018, 01:43 PM - Replies (2)

Is there a way to toggle on/off the shading for existing and proposed levels so that the base drawings can be viewed without the colours shown
This would be handy instead of having to switch between Kubla Cubed and a pdf viewer

Thanks in advance for any replies 


  Importing Vectors

A method for importing vectors from a PDF would be helpful for defining contours. I realize elevation data is typically not included with the PDF vectors but this could easily be added to the contour once the vector was imported into the surface.

  Site strip

Could you explain why overlapping site strip depths are accumulated instead of using the approach taken for offsets which prioritise elements lower in the list over those above?

Thank you.

  Failed to get all triangles in region

Hi - I'm working my way through a large car park re-model and I've had a message to say "Failed to get all Triangles in Region".
This is in relation to a small landscaped area at the end of a car park bay - Any advice would be greatly appreciated

I've been using Kubla Cubed for over a year now, but am currently the only one in the office to use it.
Is it possible to install to our server so that the single license can be used from various computers, one user at a time?
Or would we just have to buy more licenses?



  Multiple platform adjustments
Posted by: Marcus - 08-05-2018, 04:05 PM - Replies (1)

Firstly a big thumbs up for the latest updates; I love the continued improvements you make to the software.

Regards possible future ideas, I have had the following problem.

I sometimes work on large housing projects (100+ properties). For each house I place a platform with a level and an offset to reach the desired formation levels. On my last scheme I applied an offset of 0.6m. Later this was amended to 0.5m. This meant going through all 100 platforms and individually changing the offset.

Perhaps it would be possible to select multiple platforms at once so the change can be applied in one go?

  Site Imbalance
Posted by: mikeperik - 07-30-2018, 12:01 PM - Replies (5)

I'm an owner/builder who bought Kubla Cubed to help with determining the site imbalance of my home build.  I was hoping I could use it to minimize the back and forth with the site plan engineer and my excavator.  The issue I'm having is that the Net volume I'm getting with Kubla Cubed is significantly different then what my excavator is coming up with in his calculation.  I tend to believe him since he has been doing it for 25+ years and he was spot on for another project he did for me.

I've attached the kubla file for this project.  I'm trying to eliminate the porches and garage from the fill imbalance since I will need to fill with gravel to avoid compaction of any soil in those areas.  So I'm really only looking at the cut of the basement and the grading as my points for determining the imbalance.

He is coming up with around 1000 cu yds of fill.  I'm coming up with about 200 cu yds of extra fill.    Interestingly enough if I move the features in the proposed grading down to the bottom, then I show a 1,000 cu yd fill imbalance.

Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?


I'm having some difficulty attaching the Kubla Project file.
