  Problem Using CAD topo surveys
Posted by: timetomaketracks - 09-08-2021, 04:38 PM - Replies (1)

Hoping someone has a simple solution to this - every time I try and use a DWG file to generate contours I get an error message 'File does not contain any surfaces'. The data is 3D so not sure what the issue is?

Thanks in advance!

  Struggling to input levels and Newbie
Posted by: William Paton - 08-27-2021, 01:09 PM - Replies (1)

I trust someone can help

I have just downloaded the software a reviewed the tutorials and am starting to doubt if Kubla can do what i had hoped.

I would like to load a PDF of a construction site and manually input the existing point levels and contours and then the finished levels. I have no data sets or CAD to import.

The examples all seem to be based on uploading drawings that already have information on them that the software can read.

When i have tried to put levels in i am told i need to set the boundary.

When i do this i have to manually enter some levels, however after i have done that i am not able to put spot level in.

Can anyone please help me or point me in the right direction for a turorial

  Feature Request - Prompt after phase deletion
Posted by: marc.whitmore - 08-17-2021, 02:42 PM - Replies (1)

I like how after deleting an element the program asks if you are sure if you want to delete it.

However when deleting a phase, there is no such prompt. That could be pretty devastating if you accidentally delete a whole phase.

  Kubla 2021 Length Measurements
Posted by: HankSpencer - 08-11-2021, 02:06 PM - Replies (1)

I am sure that I am doing something wrong but, why cant I enter multiple lengths of pipe at the same time?  There are multiple runs with multiple sizes.

Also, how do I get a report of the total lengths at different sizes (ie 15",24" etc)?

Thanks for the help!

  KC 2021 BUG - Second volume region measurement
Posted by: marc.whitmore - 08-10-2021, 09:14 PM - Replies (5)

When trying to make a second volume region measurement in a phase, the program crashes. I have tried to do this in separate phases. Each time you are allowed to make one region, but crashes once a second one is attempted.

  Cut, from defined level or existing ground
Posted by: salvy - 08-02-2021, 05:12 PM - Replies (1)

I am new to the software and have a question. i recently set platforms and roads on a project and am not sure how to double check quantities, as i have some concern of being short on the cut.
Question- once i set the defined elevations and finished contours on the paving, does the cut quantities come from the defined levels OR do the cut quantities come from the existing ground elevations?
Can i double check quantities by using the topsoil spread tools and fill the areas?

  Geotech borehole logs
Posted by: conradccb - 07-05-2021, 02:57 AM - Replies (1)

is there a way to input borehole log data from a geotech report, in order to calculate quantities of different material types? 
Another software I previously used, you could pick points on the plan, manually type in your material depths fro the log, and it would extrapolate the data into layers.

i.e then you end up with cut/fill volumes for rock, clay, topsoil, etc.

  Path or slope or something else???
Posted by: timetomaketracks - 06-04-2021, 03:06 PM - Replies (1)

I have an existing topo survey.  I also have a final restoration contour plan.  I am trying to work out the volume of mineral which cannot be extracted due to a pipeline running across the site.  I would be obliged if anyone could suggest the best route to determine this.  The pipeline 'corridor' is approx 40m and I don't need batters taking into account.

Any help appreciated!

OK - use of an outline gives me what I needed - but how to calculate the volume of material within the strip??
