I have 3 stacked terrain models (1. Existing Ground, 2. Topsoil Stripped and 3. Mountain) and a corridor cutting through all three terrains. When calculating End-Area Volumes, is it possible to automatically calculate/devide the Cut volume into these three soil-types, based on the terrain-models?
Fortunately there will be just ORD in some time, all road design software is merging and there will be no confusion... I only hope that ORD would be capable of doing all cool stuff that all merging software can do with en ease. EAV is just to name one.

If you create a terrain model from your corridor you can create a volume report comparing the design terrain with the different existing terrains. If you use end area volumes , you should do this as a check anyway. This is how I have always calc'd volumes in SS2 and SS4.
in ORD Connect Edition you can not calculate volumes by EAV, since then you can not really create cut/fill table, can not replace unsuitable material with fill material, etc. I was told that EAV will be incorporated to ORD with update 3, hopefully Q!/Q2 next year.
Yeah , that is really unfortunate about ORD and end area reports. I didn't clarify very well in my previous post that you should try using the terrain tools to create a volume report. This can be separated into different areas by using a fence or a shape. These reports are very useful for back checking end area volumes and doing overall quantity volumes quickly. I have used this method exclusively on many large scale site projects with multiple layers of the existing and design materials.
Can someone from Bentley confirm when this functionality will be available for us? Is it update 3 or later? Thanks,Krzysztof
