Today I noticed to my surprise, that a clipped reference is not calculated at the component quantities. Am I doing something wrong (see attachements)?
Will there be in the next version of Open Roads an easy and accurate way (like to calculate quantities tool, if I don't use clipping references) to calculate quantities of multiple corridors, Civil Cells and terrains at once?Civil cells for example are at this moment dramatically to calculate / costs a lot of time.
Example of component quantities with a clipped reference.
Example of component quantities without a clipped reference. Like you can see are the quantities the same.
I'm using PowerGeopak SS4 878 version. I have a mainlane corridor and multiple driveways and crossing streets. Now, I want to have cut/fill quantities of my mainlane. I have clipped the civil cells for all intersetions with my mainlane and added as clipping reference as well. Component Quantities doesn't respects the clipping refs. Will the "End Area Volumes" do what I need here?
Any news on this... it seems it's still not working as I expected.... please give us the tools we need to extract Quantities with one mouse click.
I use the latest version of ORD
7 years!! I have the same problem, I´m new in ORD, are there a way to calculate these volumes??
Hi Angel, there is a completely new Quantity process that resolves these issues in the latest versions of ORD. Have a look at the "Quantities by Named Boundary" tool.

Hi Mark, I did some test with four methods, Component Quantities (CQ), Element Component Quantities (ECQ), Named Boundaries (NB) and selecting and obtain the volume property (SEL). ECQ dont calculate Cut/Fill, and the results are diferente to CQ, less volume in ECQ in only 1 component. The SEL is similar to CQ, and NB is similar to CQ. I have another corridor (30km) and ECQ are twice than CQ.
Wich is the mos trustly result? How can put all my sections in the same space to do an array (NB)? How works this 3 methods to quantify?
Corridor Component Quantities will not consider clipping and this is clearly stated in the dialog box - actually it calculates EAV behind the scene, see report. Element Component Quantities takes volumes form 3D elements in your Model, this volumes should match what you get from Quantities by Named Boundaries providing you are selecting the same elements that fall into given Named Boundary.. However Element Component Quantities will not report on Cut/fill meshes while the Quantities by Name Boundaries will.
Funny thing, this forum thread is quite an old one , and I see my post from 2013 where I was dreaming of a tool like Quantities by Named Boundaries at that time. Now we got it
