Use RockWorks to interpolate continuous 3D “solid models” or “block models” of simple XYZG points or sub-surface borehole data, for display in 3D or sliced as cross sections. RockWorks offers modeling of geochemical, geophysical, or geotechnical measurments; observed lithology materials; soil colors (e.g. Munsell); fractures; and vectors/voids.
Required feature levels:
Create a solid model from a list of XYZG points: Basic, Standard, Advanced.
Create a solid model from borehole data: Standard, Advanced
RockWorks Block Modeling and Display Options
- Choose from a variety of 3D modeling algorithms
- Apply data, distance, surface, and smoothing filters during modeling
- Apply 2D (Standard level) and 3D (Advanced level) faulting
- Display in 3D as color-coded voxels or as an isosurface
- Apply a variety of color schemes, including user-created custom schemes
- Interactively filter for specific value ranges and view corresponding volumes
- Insert horizontal and vertical slices, and reposition them to view hot spots
- Illustrate multiple concentration levels with “x-isosurfaces”
- Insert cutouts to view the model interior
- Include automatic or customized legends
- Apply dozens of solid model manipulation tools and filters
- Include logs, aerial photos, 3D surfaces, and many other 3D entities in your scenes
3D Ore Block Models
- Create block models of assay concentrations and display them in 3D as isosurfaces or voxel models.
- Run a floating-cones pit optimization.
3D Geophysical Solid Models
- Create solid models of downhole point measurements – gamma, resistivity, etc.
3D Contaminant Models
- Create static models of contaminant plumes and display them in 3D as isosurfaces or as color-coded voxels.
- Create transitional time-based models, display these “morphed” sequences, and create movie animations.
3D Lithology Block Models
- Create solid models representing the distribution of your lithology material types.
- Display all or selected materials as color-coded 3D voxels.
- View volumes of each lithology type.
3D Color Solids
- Display interpolated color data as 3D voxel models or 3D points.
- Filter for specific color ranges, and view volumes
3D Vector-Based Models
- Use RockWorks to convert downhole directional data into solid models that approximate the extents of the vectors.
- An example application is the generation of void geometries (cave models) based on downhole laser surveys.
