Good afternoon from England.
Apologies if this has been asked before, but is there a (ideally free) software utility for calculating a stockpile volume from a csv (or dxf) file?
I've got several piles of excavated materials and the client needs to know the volume of the materials removed.
Any help or advice (or a link to a download) would be very helpful and appreciated.
