Cut and fill normally used to determined the volume of the land to be in cut or have to fill in. MysCad will count for you the volume that your need either to filling or cutting purpose.

30. Why I can't view my points?

There is several reason for this problem, to view points, the point layer must be active and the view mode must set to wire mode. If these doesn't work, try to zoom extent again. Otherwise the point will not display accordingly.

31. How to calculate the Detail Survey Data?

Normally survey firm will do calculating manually but using MysCAD, you can calculate the data using TopoCal function inside Topo Survey Office.

After calculating data, just click to Plot Topo and the drawing will come out. But before that make sure there is no object in the drawing.

33. What does Numerical To Text function do? How to used numerical to text function?

This command creates a terrain model points from the selected numerical text. The X and Y coordinate for the created 3D point is follow the original position of the selected numerical text. The 3D points are store at layer TerrianFromText. To do this:

  • Topography Menu, choose Numerical text to Terrain.
  • Select a text or use windows selection.
The 3D points will be created and store in layer TerrianFromText.

34. Why I cannot create Cross section line?

Please clear your Snap function by using Clear Osnaps button. This is because when you click on alignment line, the snap function will attached to cross section line.

35. How many volume calculation that the software have?

MysCad have 2 types of volume calculation that are:
Method No 1:Triangulation method
