When designing, we divide the field into subzones as tasks for each tractor operator. Would it be possible to have a function where we choose how many subzones we want and the software creates the subzones with similar cut/fill quantities?4 votes
This is a good idea. Our new OptiHaul Map in OSDv3.5.4 will greatly assist with manually creating these subzones and we will think hard about how to do this automatically as an extension of the OptiHaul Analysis. Thanks again for your suggestion.
Software update button
Check for update button would definitely be nice. - on behalf of Billy Beaudry1 vote
We are working on a new web based version and should automatically update. However, if it is run offline, we may need to force the update.
Be nice to have credits used to make the design written somewhere.
After we unlocked a design and closed the unlock window telling us how much credits are required, there is no way to see how much was used again. Would be easier for billing because sometimes credits used area and field areas aren't exactly the same.1 vote
Apologies, we have not implemented this. In our new web based version we will make this a priority.
We are working on a new version of OptiSurface that will run completely on the cloud and you'll be able to share your designs to your client with a link and they can view all the details of the design. We are interested in your thoughts on this idea and should all layers be available to them?
It could be useful to have a window appearing when we leave our mouse on a section line for two seconds that would display name, main slope % proprieties, max chage % etc....7 votes
We are totally rewriting OptiSurface Designer and we're thinking the best way to implement this would be to left click on a section line and the properties would be displayed on a panel on the right hand side of the screen where you can edit them if required.
Let us know your thoughts on this idea.
Report the % Land Area for a Given Slope Interval
It will be nice to have a feature to report the % of land area at a given interval on primary slope or cross slope.

CPU Only at 30% Capacity when Calculating
My CPU only works at about 30% capacity while calculating. Having to load a big file (~400 hectare field) often is cumbersome. Is there a way to speed it up?

In our new web based version, we will take advantage of multiple cores for the analysis tools. However, the landform design calculations are a lot more complex and difficult to spread to multicores although we are attempting to do this.
How about adding a feature for converting units?
I'd love to have a feature that enables me to switch from metric to imperial without having to start again from scratch.

We are working on a totally new version and excited to tell you that you will be able to change units on the fly. It is a total rewrite but there's no firm release date as of yet. It could be at least a year away.
