I’ve really only used SketchUp to design small woodworking project so far and I am now attempting something completely different and struggling quite a bit so here I am
I have a land survey from which I made a topographic map using the Points Cloud extension.
And I also have a “desired” final grade with different slopes and profile.
I am trying to figure out at which elevation I should set my desired land profile so that I can balance out the soil I need to remove and where I need to fill.
Here is an image of what my model looks like :
So right now I’m trying to find a way to calculates volumes between my 2 topographic maps and it is not exactly going smoothly! I figured I should try to find something like the drape tool that would work on my model (and not only the sandbox object) to project 1 map onto the other and intersect those.
If someone could point me in the right direction, that would help a lot!
