Formation

Muk3D|Formation is an essential tool for any engineer or designer working with earth structures. With a simple to use design and powerful 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 images for reports, Muk3D|Formation lets you achieve your goals in a fraction of the time associated with other civil or mine design tools.

Finish projects in minutes, not weeks

Instead of using cumbersome programs like Civil 3D, use the fit for purpose tools in Muk3D|Formation to enable you to get results in a fraction of time. Easily import data from a wide range of 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 and grids as well as create contours, cross sections, and volume calculations. Seamlessly build dynamic models that allow for interactive design and sizing of structures.

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 full help sections, tutorials, training and support.

Powerful tools in an intuitive, simple to use platform

Create stunning visuals

Import and manipulate airphotos, merge image tiles and add new elements to photos. Use better images that include colours, textures, elevation shading, airphotos and isopachs. Create great looking images to effectively display earth structures to users, stakeholders and the public.
