I see you are also on the Practice Version General discussion, so perhaps you don't have access to the rest of the forums. This volumes issue has been discussed before with the only options being to use excel to process the data to the required chainage intervals or a macro. https://forums.12dmodel....

I have written a program to handle the output information from 12d to consolidate both the volume and height data in integers of 10 without loosing the accuracy of the output. If its a 12d macro and you want to share, it can go on the macro forums https://forums.12dmodel.com/macros.php ther file ty...

The Apply many uses the overall polygon to null the tin surface, and will also recreate the tin so therefore clearing an...

Are you saving to dwt?
Acad will only save dwt to the current Acad version. However there is no difference in dwt vs dwg so just save as 2007 dwg and manually rename to dwt.

You can get this error if the dongle driver has not been installed. Is 12D a new install or first time your running it on this PC? The dongle driver is a separate install file and often gets forgotten about. Otherwise its likely the env.4d. The shortcut can reference this file so maybe copy both fil...

Unless something has changed in the letest version, you can compile and run macros in the practice version.

Using the practice version for macro writing is fine.
The only real issue I think is that printing to the output window is disabled, which makes debuging a lot harder. I ended up using a simple panel to display debug data.
