  • I don't check login too often sorry about that, but since I have a friend now I'll try to more often. I'm still in school for Civil Engineering Tech. in Iowa. I'm learning alot and also have experience from a coop from this past summer, with the oldest licence land surveyor in my area. Very very challenging at first. I am in search of the six surveying methods that's has been used, in different states or countries as well, as an assignment.

  • Hi Eric,

    Hows are you going?

    Just visited your site mate and I see that you use AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009, as do I in conjunction with CivilCAD 6.

    Just wondering how you find it as far as volumes go, and if you know how to get a decent volume report out of it?
    I only seem to be able to get about 3 lines in the command window... which is not very convincing when clients want to see how you arrived at a figure.
    I think it is great for Cut to Fill drawings etc, just looking to get a decent report out of it. Any ideas?
