  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.

Hello All,
Any news on the 2019 release?

  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?

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
Posted by: AggieBQ86 - 09-18-2018, 09:32 PM - Replies (1)

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

  Server Install
Posted by: Garion - 08-15-2018, 10:12 AM - Replies (1)


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?
