  • Calculation Grid Bearing (deg) - Defines the direction of the calculation grid.

  • Calculation Grid Spacing (m or ft) - Defines the how far apart the calculation grid is.

  • Cut/Fill (m or ft) and Stripping Depths (m or ft) - Edit this table to define the stripping depth for the respective cut or fill.
Once calculation is finished, the Stripping Topography and Stripping Cut/Fill  can be ticked ON or OFF in the Project Explorer as shown below.

Finally, the control file can be generated in File > Export Stripping Design...

Note:  The Stripping Design is calculated based on the Proposed Cut/Fill Map so it requires a landform design to be calculated beforehand.
