I am currently working on two design options on a sloped site. I want to qualify which option is better in terms of a cut/fill comparison.(among other studies) problem is I cannot place a pad in the design options because it needs to be hosted in main model. If I copy the topo into the design options then the pads I have placed in the rest of the model will be comprimised. Any ideas?

If you are just after a figure I'd temporarily copy it into a new file and get the cut/fill value for the other option.  Although, i'd have to check but it sounds like it should be achievable in 1 model.

 That is,

Option 1 - Main site topo, and all pads for that option, Create a schedule for this option

Option 2 - Main site topo, and all pads for that option, Create a schedule for this option

Would this be the same thing as copying topo into each option? Is there another way that the topo can stay in one place and have the ability to update across the main model and all design options?

If you have to alter the topo with pads or grading then the topo must reside in the option.  You could have a large topo with just a split out area that changes for each DO and resides in it's own DO.

Yeah that's a good point. I probably should do it that way. I'm just in a position where I have a large existing site that I built off an old set of data and I may need to update those conditions once I have more recent and accurate data. I suppose that rebuilding pads with copied updated topo is still more simple. Does this seem reasonable? Have you done something similar before?
