View Layer Colors

Use the Grid tab to view colors corresponding to cut and fill volumes of the grid cells.

The red cells show that the cell requires cut while blue cells show that the cell requires fill. The darker the color, the more cut or fill is required. You can also view the cut and fill volumes using high contrast colors instead of just shades of red and blue. When you view cut and fill in high contrast, warm colors, such as red and yellow, represent cut areas, and cool colors, such as green and blue, represent fill.
