Earth Working Software | Mudshark

Supplier: BrightBox Software

MudShark is the next generation onscreen take off software for delivering precise earthwork estimates in record time.


MudShark can be used to calculate bulk earthworks for earthwork contractors, quantity surveyors, estimators, builders, landscapers and more. Simple enough for the occasional user to be productive while still containing enough functionality under the hood to satisfy power users.

Whether you calculate earthwork volumes every day or every month MudShark will work with you to save you time and money. If you have to know how much soil is being moved around a construction site then MudShark is for you.

MudShark allows you to effortlessly build a 4D model defining how the site currently looks and how you want the site to look after all earthworks are complete. This information is used by MudShark's advanced solid modelling engine to perform simulations of the earthworks. The end result is a richly visual and very precise representation of all your cut and fill, stripping respread and simple structure foundations.

MudShark provides a richly visual experience with intuitive interaction using the mouse and GUI elements. All elements of your Project are rendered out as a true scale 4D model. You can intuitively navigate around and interact with any component of your site using the mouse the same as you would with other professional 3D modelling packages.

You are empowered to explore your site rather than limited by predefined views offered by your software. View, select and inspect all visual elements in your project from any angle; up close or far away. MudShark calculates your results from the scaled 4D models of the site.

Reporting of these results is the primary responsibility of the results grid; a hierarchical view of all movements of material over the duration of a project. All the information displayed in the grid (and more) and can be exported to Microsoft Excel and then printed or used in other applications.

Site models are created by taking off data from plans that you insert into your project. MudShark works with the latest file types for both CAD and image formats, with a workflow that has been streamlined for taking off earthwork data from multiple plans.
