Missing the Composite Volumes Tool in Civil 3D 2014?


Are you missing the Composite Volumes tool in Civil 3D 2014? I like the new Volumes Dashboard but I don’t like creating additional surfaces to calculate earthwork volumes. The command to the original Composite Volumes tool is still in Civil 3D 2014. It is REPORTSURFACEVOLUME. I’ve recreated the ribbon and menu button for this command.
 
 
The image shows the location of the two buttons in the provided CUI file.

 
Here's a link to the CUIX file.

Civil 3D & Civil View with AutoCAD Solids


I'm currently working on a Civil 3D model exported to Civil View in 3D Studio Max Design. I've modeled a suspension bridge with AutoCAD solids. In the next week or so, I'll explain how to import the solid model and align it with the Civil View model. Stay tuned!
