  Copy & Paste Outlines
Posted by: djungst - Yesterday, 01:52 PM - No Replies

I have created an outline for topsoil strip.  On another TAB (phase), I want to use that same outline to setup a platform so that I can determine the site balance elevation.  I am pretty sure that I am getting the copy part right on the topsoil strip phase, select all points using the arrow feature in the upper left hand corner of the outline coordinates list and then doing a control-C, but I cannot get these coordinates pasted on the next phase.  What is the sequence of operations I must do on the new phase to paste the coordinates?

  What the meaning of "Side Better"??

As the Topic ask. 

The "Cut" & "Fill" have any effect to side batter?  have any calculation rules?

I have a pdf with contur lines. I added them into my pdf and did a top soil strip.
Now I want to rescape the area to get the best massbalance. The site slops several meters so need to get the best balance of the site.
How do I do this?

Photo Preparing data for import
Posted by: Jules Attwood - 11-09-2021, 12:44 PM - No Replies

I have just completed a complex 19 phase cut & fill project in Kubla Cubed with a site area of 275,000m2 and thought I'd share my observations regarding the workstream.
The reason for so many phases is that there is a culvert running through the middle of the site and no surplus materials are to be taken off-site. Therefore a balanced materials movement was required. This equates to 184,000m3 of materials movement.
The final Kubla Cubed file size is 31Mb

The Client issued information was, as usual, not the best with existing topographical survey information buried as a group within the proposed site layout DWG files.

In Autodesk Civils 3D
1. Purge the dwg.
2. Delete all layers to leave the site outline and the grouped existing survey point data.
3. BURST the remaining information so that all elements can be selected and reviewed independently.
4. Check that the existing survey points/contours contain XYZ information. (Luckily they did).
6. The file was ready for import into Kubla Cubed. 

5.Next was to create new layers and assign different distinct colors to the contours in order to import just the relevant information by phase into Kubla Cubed. (Contour Image attached which was further broken down to each phase)
    a. By doing this I was not importing the complete site proposed topo for all the phases, thereby reducing the file size.
6. With the topo contours now having distinct colours it was easier to import into their relevant phases These were imported as Feature Surface, break lines and Outlines (Image shows all phases combined)
Note:-Very few projects that we receive with DWG topo contour information have the contours "smoothed" and this leads to jagged contours and some falling back on themselves. Importing as Break Lines created better results.

I trust this is informative.

  Unable to set boundaries with feature surface tool
Posted by: Saudidave - 11-06-2021, 11:41 AM - Replies (1)

I'm new to Kubla Cubed but very experienced with other construction software including on screen digital measurement programs.

I can import a drawing, set the scale by either measure of a known length or inputting the figures. I am also able to align the drawing. When going in to the feature surface tool and attempting to set the site boundary I'm unable to do so as the cursor doesn't draw anything. I am choosing manual / interpolate and the pen symbol. What's going wrong?

The 2021 version looks great and has some brilliant features.
Please can you produce some up to date tutorial and 'walk through' videos to supersede the ones currently on Youtube as they are out of date and some are difficult to follow

I recently have went back to make adjustments and have accidently canceled some work and have not been able to return to the previous work. Is it lost for good? is there a way to return to the previous state?

I am super new to this kind of software and Im having a problem that seems super basic but Im not sure how to fix it. I uploaded a pdf and I was just hoping to find some areas, but my measurement tool + key is grey and wont let me click on it. Just trying to troubleshoot because Im not sure what to change so that it will allow me to use the measurement tool. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  Importing information from 12d files
Posted by: niko - 09-22-2021, 03:55 AM - Replies (2)

Hello Ted and the rest of the Kubla team.

I wanted to suggest integrating the importing of 12d format information directly into Kubla Cubed.

Is this at all a possibility?
