3D Data Guidance Pty Ltd (3D Data) is an Australian company specialising in improving and maximising the efficiency of Bulldozer fleets. Using our patented software and other technical processes we identify and implement optimal push sequences to minimize costs associated with re-handle and less productive push practices in Bulldozer bulk push operations. With the addition of the Spade Blade to a Bulldozer we can further maximise productivity. By utilising our range of products we can deliver “Best Fit” and “Best Practice” that ensures a dozer fleet is working at maximum efficiency.


The advantage of engaging 3D Data, is from our extensive expertise coming from a combined total of over 30 years the industry of GPS design and manufacture, equipment operation, surveying, survey control of GPS enabled earthmoving equipment, dozer blade design, earthwork design, and engineering.

3 D Data Guidance provide solutions for the efficient moving of materials using bulldozers for mine sites and civil construction sites where there is a requirement to move large volumes of materials cost effectively and efficiently.
There are 3 broad technologies we address

  1. Bulk push of overburden often called dozer assist or dragline assist. Using this technology provides a set of strategies designed from a dozer perspective that mitigate wasteful removal and subsequent rehabilitation of overburden. This is achieved through better “in cabin” strategies for dozer operators and minimising the negative effects of rogue dozer operators. In addition all strategies can be benchtop tested prior to loading the strategy into the dozer fleet. Accuracies and savings of great significance are achieved.

  2. Land Rehabilitation bulk material earthworks. There is evidence that savings of up to 30% on rehabilitation can be achieved using our processes.

  3. Strategies for bulk stockpile handling e.g. coal, bauxite, woodchips, sand mining and many other bulk handling projects. Like items 1&2 we are able to provide significant savings and efficiencies.

The company was formed after there was shown to be a need to improve the operational performance of Bulldozers for Bulk Push operations, just as Truck & Shovel optimisation techniques and software have evolved, the Dozer Optimisation market had so far been neglected. With more and more companies turning towards lower operating costs, the requirement to enhance the control and efficiency of Bulk Dozer Push operations has increased. 3D Data guidance became a reality in 2010.
