TPC can create a cut sheet, showing the cut or fill of the points in a traverse or a drawing object to a surface. A cut sheet looks something like this:
[[ Cut Sheet Report ]]
Traverse: Route #1
N:248.795 E:615.722 Z:2.00 Surface Elvation:4.07 Fill:2.07
N:292.414 E:646.591 Z:3.00 Surface Elvation:8.35 Fill:5.35
N:236.716 E:690.209 Z:4.00 Surface Elvation:8.61 Fill:4.61
N:172.966 E:700.946 Z:5.00 Surface Elvation:7.59 Fill:2.59
N:164.242 E:794.894 Z:5.00 Surface Elvation:6.80 Fill:1.80
N:250.809 E:791.539 Z:4.00 Surface Elvation:9.35 Fill:5.35
N:339.388 E:858.645 Z:3.00 Surface Elvation:7.21 Fill:4.21
This information is appended to the current Report, and shows the cut or fill at each point that is required to bring the elevation of that point to the surface at that point. Itís actually easier to read the report than it is to explain it.
No new points are created by the Cut Sheet report. TPC just computes the surface elevation of each point as needed for the report. These are not stored anywhere in the survey. To store the computed surface elevations, you would need to create a transect (see Creating Transects From Contours).
Youíll find more information about Cut Sheets in the Surface Cut Sheet command.
