    Default Different earth volumes

    Greetings to all...

    I need some help. I am currently calculating the amount of earth removed from a land site. Using the LDT composite method I get 53.996 cu.mts. of cut, but if I use the sections method the amount increases to 67.003 cu.mts. of cut. Does anyone know why this happens?

    This puzzles me, because I cannot explain it either to my boss or to our inspector, and I have been using this software since the Softdesk ages!

    The LDT composite is the most precise cause Civil uses it's own criteria to calculate masses while other methods use the old way.
