The Belgian federal government requires a cadastral volume to be determined in three dimensions. In order to assist topographic surveyors with this requirement, we've introduced a new object.

It is now possible to extrude polygons to create a new type of object: a Solid. 

This can be done by editing a polygon and extruding it:



 In 3D you get the following result: 


Selection of Solids is made easy with the selection shortcut key S. 

And lastly, we’ve added a new annotation type ‘Volume’ to be used for Solids. A selection of existing annotation types can also be applied for these new objects, depending on their specific function relevance.
