AUTOCAD ASSIGNMENT #3 - CROSS SECTIONS AND EARTHWORK The purpose of this assignment is to create two cross-sections for the 2-lane highway from Assignments #1 and #2 using AutoCAD and calculate the volume of cut and fill required between the two stations. You will use the same AutoCAD commands as were used in the vertical profile assignment, but applied to the cross-section. In the third of three AutoCAD exercises we will develop two sample cross sections; one cut and one fill condition. A field survey and preliminary design work provided the information in Table 3.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
