Can you use multiple materials for fill on Takeoff?

First let me say that Takeoff is not my speciality.  Is it possible to run a takeoff that shows the quantities of separate materials for fill for an embankment or berm?  I've attached an example below where we would be building a berm made from multiple materials that has an irregular bottom and sides.  It is possible to build a FD model and OG model, but you cannot apply a simple region with a material because the material depths are not consistent.  A site improvement can have multiple materials, but again, the thickness of each material is not uniform.  Is there a way to use the takeoff module to compute this?  Or would you just make separate surfaces for each layer and run surface-surface earthworks reports?  Would the answer change if the berm was a single material and not layered?  Thanks.Simple berm detail
