General Usage Instructions
The DDM plugin uses stepping stone method to calculate the distribution of earthworks, but for this to work, it is necessary to inform all available parameters such as CBR, Expansion, DMT ranges, etc...
It is also necessary to have the project modeled in Autodesk® Civil 3D®, with well-defined material lists.
