Mudshark Earthworks:

MudShark earthworks 3D takeoff tools allow you to effortlessly build a 4D model defining how the site currently looks and how you want the site to look after all earthworks are complete. This information is used by MudShark’s advanced solid modelling engine to perform simulations of the earthworks. The end result is a richly visual and very precise representation of all your cut and fill, stripping re-spread and structure foundations.

MudShark Trench:

MudShark Trench is the estimator’s choice for easily and accurately performing takeoff for trench and pipe networks. It features depth categories, automated clash detection and interactive 3D display.  Use MudShark Trench as an add-on module with the MudShark earthworks software, or on its own.

Mudshark Earthworks Key Features:

Rapid Takeoff

rapid takeoff - Mudshark Earthworks Software - Civil Engineering SoftwareUsing data in a PDF/CAD  file can reduce take off time to a fraction of what it would traditionally be. Pick the lines that you want to use as Contours and if you’ve inserted a 3D CAD file you can transmute all of your contours in seconds using the altitudes already set in the Plan.

4D Walkthrough

4d view - Mudshark Earthworks Software - Civil Engineering SoftwareTake a stroll through time and across your 3D site at any stage of earthworks.  Modify the ground or structures you walk across in realtime during the walk-through to more easily see how the land is changing. Inspect your excavation  and take a snapshot of what you see to include in reports or to make notes.

Multiple Boring

Boring log - Mudshark Earthworks Software - Civil Engineering SoftwareAre you calculating projects where soil or rock thickness is irregular across your site?

Your earthwork estimations will be more accurate then ever with our multiple boring solid modelling. Quickly define and plot (or plot then define) as many boring points as your site needs. Giving you precise 3D solid volumes in a fraction of the time of manual calculation.

Cross Sections 

Cross Sections - Mudshark Earthworks Software - Civil Engineering SoftwareExplore your site with our fully detailed in-place 3D and 2D cross sections. Generate and print cross sections of any shape and inspect how the site changes along that cross section during cut and fill operations.

Now you can have even more confidence in the easiest and most precise way to estimate your earthworks by using Mudshark.

Material Reuse

Project Materials - Mudshark Earthworks Software - Civil Engineering SoftwareMudShark makes it easier to to enter, manipulate and Control how materials are used in your site.

Designate which materials can be reused and where; for strata operations or for each material. Also. nominate Materials that are unfit to be used and must be discarded
