Earthworks are one of the largest costs to consider for any project. OpenRoads Designer's model (BIM) based approach provides significant flexibility and accuracy in quantity calculations. Come see how the OpenRoads Designer model provides cut, fill, and unsuitable material meshes which are used to report volumes in a format to meet your project requirements. You can report on these 3D volumes with conventional end area volume methods, or compute volumes more accurately with a full prismoid approach directly from the 3d model, or even 'slice' up the model to report volumes segregated for staged construction, different areas of the project, or for each plan sheet.
