Cut/Fill Ratios

It is important to consider the cut/fill ratio when creating a design surface in T3C and T3D. The cut/fill ratio is determined by the type of material being moved and what percentage of it will “settle” or “shrink” once compacted.Example: Setting the Cut/fill ratio at 1.2 means that you are moving at the rate of 1.2 cubic yards of cut to get 1.0 cubic yards of compact fill.
