Volumetrics – Cut and Fill Definitions

In LP360 we define Cut as the positive volume and Fill as the negative volume.  Thus, if you had a pile and drew a polygon around its base, the volume would be considered Cut.  Conversely, a polygon around a hole in the ground would result in a volume labeled Fill. We have found this definition to be consistent with the practice in some industries yet in opposition to others, so you may need to reverse the labels in your particular area of practice.
