Hi… I’m a civil engineer… I work on planing of open pit quarries…
My starting point is a 3d model of a virgin soil or an already excavated quarry. The model is made with total station and/or drone and/or google earth and/or topographic maps.
From this initial ground I have to design the mining operations to reach the final configuration I expected. The operations are principally excavations, creation of roads and “benching” for the subsequent environmental recovery. Completed the “geometric design,” I must be able to tell how much material is excavated and produce plans and sections of the various stages of completion.
Is Rhino the right software according to the needs I described above ?
How ? I need addons ? Any tutorials ?
