Does anybody outhere know how to get a comprehensive, printable volume report out of Civil 3D 2009?I can obviously calculate them, but I want to be able to print out volumes from surfaces - basically to add to my cut/fill plans. All that I can get so far is about 3 lines of text in the command line, not very convincing when you are telling your clients that they have about 750,000 m3 of dirt to move, evewn if I knowits right.Anyway, I hope someone can help me out.ThanksDarrenSurveyors in Western Australia

    • Hi Don,

      Thanks very much for your replies, they are very much appreciated.

      I tried your solution, but then, when I tried to execute the report it tells me this:

      "Error displaying report in registered browser The specified file was not found"

      Any Idea what this might be?
      • it is trying to write an xml file that can be displayed in your internet browser, on my computer they open automatically, I haven't tried one since I updated to IE 8.... make sure you have pop up blockers etc turned off... ??
        make sure that the data the report is looking for is available??
  • Anyone out there?
