This is your ideal companion for efficient design of earth structures.

At a very affordable price, Muk3D|Formation is the perfect tool for Engineers & Designers who want to efficiently design earth structures, quantify volumes associated with their designs, and communicate with stakeholders.

With a simple-to-use design and robust set of tools, it makes any project easy, from processing & visualisation of large datasets to high-level sizing & volumetrics of earth structures. Even if you’re just making great-looking visuals for reports, Muk3D|Formation lets you achieve your goals in a fraction of the time associated with other civil or mine design tools.

Rapid 3D design

Instead of using cumbersome CAD programs, use the fit-for-purpose tools in Muk3D|Formation to enable you to get results in a fraction of the time. Easily import data from various sources and create grids and surfaces in minutes. Use advanced design and visualization tools that allow you to quickly create and edit lines, triangulated surfaces, grids and create contours, cross sections, and volume calculations.


Seamlessly build dynamic models that allow for interactive design and sizing of structures.


Powerful tools in an intuitive, easy-to-use platform

Muk3D|Formation boasts a gradual and short learning curve, so beginners become experts in the shortest time possible.


Easily move data back and forth to CAD and GIS. Complement existing workflows by doing a quick design or calculation and export the results back into your preferred detail design tool, or create a range of earth structures and build basic dynamic models that update themselves when input data/parameters are changed. Simplify tasks using workspace customisation to show only the commands needed for the task at hand. All with complete help sections, tutorials, training and support.


Create stunning visuals

Import and manipulate airphotos, merge image tiles and add new elements to photos. Use better images, including colours, textures, elevation shading, airphotos and isopachs.


Create great-looking images to effectively display earth structures to users, stakeholders and the public.

Automate your workflow with Python

Muk3D allows users to record macros and write their own scripts using Python.  With minimal knowledge of Python, create time-saving tools of your own to automate all aspects of the design process.  Run sensitivity analysis while your dam sizing, post-process results to summarise and export data, or interface with other programs such as Excel and Powerpoint.
