I am looking on help on cut/fill volumes on terrain using Ruby. Comfortable with Ruby and plugin development as part of a solar design plugin for the past yest or two. However, I looked in the forum and extension warehouse and just need some help on how to get started.
Scenario is I have a terrain mesh (converted from sandbox tool). Given a flat sloping face which follows the overall terrain gradient, how do I get started on calculation the cut and fill of the dirt to remove/fill to make the terrain flat. I saw Section Plane help, but am not clear how I can use that in Ruby to get the cut/fill volumes.
Any pointers to get started is appreciated.
