Create a Cut & Fill Earthwork Exhibit in Civil 3D


Jeff Bartels of Autodesk explains how to build and employ a Volume Surface, a Surface Style tool, and Surface Labels in a grid to produce the basics of a easy to maintain site Earthwork Volume Exhibit publication.
He also covers the classic Label Style Expression trick of using zero height Labels to control label visibility.
From the Civil Imersion blog.

Great stuff. Maybe you want Cut & Fill contours in your Surface Style and in the exhibit instead.
This is one of many posts of similar subjects Comparative Civil 3D Surface QC
Maybe you want colorized volumn ranges and/or grey-scale screened versions to print.
The Framework for Civil 3D includes all of these useful grading design and publication Style tools.
