Cut/Fill Map group


IconNameDescription
-
ColorsAllows you to set the color scheme to display your Cut/Fill information. Two color schemes are available to be picked, a simple red or blue, and a color ramp blue to red. Colors display visually where there are Cut & Fill areas. Blue / neon blue areas represent Fill areas, while red / yellow to red represent Cut areas in the Viewport.
-
Min. Cut/FillMinimum Cut/Fill applies a threshold to both the Cut and Fill that does not apply color to values under your threshold. For instance, a Volume area with a 2ft Min Cut/Fill will only show color on areas with Cuts above 2ft, and Fills below -2ft. Anything in between will have no color applied, and will display as normal.
-
Stretch toStretch to allows you to set a threshold for the top and bottom value of the color ramp. Any values above or below the set threshold will then display their color as the maximum of the color ramp.

For example if your maximum cut value is 25 feet due to some outliers such as vegetation or noise in your data, most of your relevant data might have a max Cut & Fill of 10 ft only, and will be either yellow or neon blue (the inner colors of the color ramp), with no dark red or blue (the outer ends) being shown. Adjusting the Stretch to value to 10ft would then color any Cuts above 10ft to the maximum color (red), and any Fills below -10ft to the maximum color (dark blue).
RefreshRecalculates your Cut & Fill calculations based on any changes made to the Surface Terrain such as Replace Terrain, Remove Object, Modify Terrain or Offset Within.
