  3. Exporting 3D solid model voxel information

    Hi Brianna, I am using the 3D solid model from Rockworks to conduct a linear site response analysis to study the seismic wave propagation through the different soil layers under seismic excitation. Any FEM software package usually requires: (1) the voxel corner nodes coordinates in X,Y, and Z; (2) the voxel connectivity which links the 8 corner nodes. The available voxel data are not enough to generate the 3D FEM model as the the data represents the voxel center with the corresponding G value.

  5. A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following enhancements, and bug fixes: Enhancements + Borehole Manager - Edit | Coordinate Converter (from/to Easting/Northing) now allows specifying the units (feet/meters) for other coordinates. + Bulk converter for the Utilities updates the Custom settings in the Metadata. Bug Fixes + The LogPlot import wizard was not updating the Wizard header at the top of the dialog. + Fixed a problem with diagonal lines in the 3D perimeter cage. + Fixed a problem whereby a recent update of Windows changed the size of the font for the Borehole list.

  7. If you cannot install the newer version due to IT policies, you can work around the problem manually by turning off the Check for Updates option in the menu file. Open the following file in Notepad or another text editor: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\RockWare\RockWorks17\RockWorks_Menus.ini where <username> is your login name on your computer. Search for the parameter named CHECK_VERSION and set it equal to 0, i.e. CHECK_VERSION=0 Save the changes, and re-start RockWorks 17. Regards, Tom Bresnahan RockWare Inc.
  8. Exporting 3D solid model voxel information

    Msayed, Because RockWorks uses constant spacing in each direction, the connection areas and distances are going to be constant in each direction. Regarding corners, you could shift the cell centers over 1/2 a cell distance in each direction to get a list of cell corners (you would also have to add corners along three boundaries of the model. We do not have a specific export written that includes this information. If you want to provide a format that is a standard for import into an FEM model, our programmers can take a look to see how hard it would be to reproduce. Please send this type of information, along with your contact details and license information, to tech @ rockware. com. Best Regards, Alison
  9. LogPlot 8 2018.4.5

  10. Hello Alison,

    I have question about importing the CPT data from Excel to Rockware. I have been trying and looking to the videos on  YouTube, but still have problem. 

    I will upload the Excel file that I'm trying to upload. 

     

    Thank you much in advance

  11. Exporting 3D solid model voxel information

    Msayed, What program are you using and what kind of format are you in need of? Why would the center of the voxels be sufficient? Since the RockWorks model is regularly spaced and uniform, wouldn't the center of the nodes be the "same" as the corners? I would think it would only be different if the discretization of the grid was variable?
  12. RockWorks17 2018.3.29

    A few more I forgot! Improvements: + The "Unique Well Identifier" optional field is now actually optional, although some imports require it and will create it automatically. + When PLSS coordinates are converted to Easting/Northing, the progress dialog was being left open; no more. Bug fix: + The Text/Excel import was incorrectly mapping the Location table's fields when using a template.
  13. A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following new features, enhancements, and bug fixes: New Features + An option has been added to I-Data, T-Data and P-Data to save the points used for modeling (filtered, resampled and added) to an RwDat file. This can be used in conjunction with the new stand alone High Fidelity filter (see below) or the Residuals program. + A stand alone High Fidelity Filter has been added to the Utilities | Solid | Filter. + The Solid Modeling Superface and Subface Filters now have the option to use a user specified null value. + Points, lines, polylines and polygons digitized in RockPlot2D can now be exported to the project database as new boreholes. The user can specify either a fixed collar elevation or use a surface grid to find the elevations. The new boreholes are automatically named with a "PG" plus a number. + Points and Lines digitized in RockPlot3D can now be exported to the database as boreholes. + A new Solid model Polygon filter that uses polygons in RockPlot2D has been added. This allows filtering using multiple polygons. + Polygon Filtering during Modeling can now use multiple polygons from with a RockPlot2D file. + The RockPlot2D files used for the Polygon Filter can now be in a different coordinate system than the Project's output. Enhancements + The 2D Striplog Fracture and Vector columns can now plot the tadpoles with the color in the table. + The Stratigraphy and Lithology Pickers now allow negative depths. + The Grids -> Strat program now makes sure that the paired grids share the same dimensions. Bug Fixes + Quickmap now shows the selected borehole when the input and output units don't match. + Quickmap now shows the border when the input and output units don't match. + Dimensions -> Google Earth will display in the correct place when the project is in feet + The Stratigraphy Picker now shows the entire cross section when units have depths below TD and/or above KB. + The Stratigraphy Picker wasn't drawing units with depths below 999 units. + A user may delete a field in a SQLite RW17 database. SQLite does not allow multiple transaction levels. + Only 3D Fault options will be displayed for Stratigraphic Fence diagrams. + Fixed a problem with the Catmull-Rom spline calculation for 3D Curve Ribbon that cause some lines to appear bumpy. + The Stratigraphic 3D Isopach program wasn't producing any output. + The RockPlot3D Surface filter sliders now update the minimum/maximum values correctly. + The Plot Faults option for Stratigraphic Models was sometimes being ignored. + World Outline transparency settings are now stored and loaded correctly.

  15. Exporting 3D solid model voxel information

    Hi Mitch, Thanks for your answer. I would like to generate an FEM model for my solid model, and to do so, all I need is the voxel corner nodes coordinates and nodes connectivity.
  16. Exporting 3D solid model voxel information

    No, the solid models are just xyzg data. You can calculate the corners from the node spacing data. If you tell us how you would use this information we can make some suggestions.
  17. Hi there, I am trying to extract the voxel information from my 3d solid (block) model. All I got so far is to extract the nodes coordinates in ASCII format (txt) file that includes X,Y,Z, and G columns. Is there any chance to extract or even export the voxel (cube/hexahedron) information such as the corner nodes and nodes connectivity. Thanks in advance!
  18. Thanks for this question Chris. If you want to have uniform thickness across faults, you have to add in some control. RockWorks needs to create a grid across the entire project area. This includes above ground where the units may have eroded away. You need to approach your project with a couple of things in mind: your geology is a result of multiple events and you will need to construct the stratigraphy model in the same way. I would recommend creating a grid surface of your alluvium on its own first. This gives you a known thickness of alluvium across the site. The bottom of the alluvium will then be the constraining surface to the underlying layers. You can save the alluvium for later as it's modeled by turning off that unit in the stratigraphy list so it's not re-interpolated. The stratigraphy model is then constructed below including layers that would have intersected the alluvium prior to erosion. Do this by adding stratigraphy above the ground (you can have strat units with negative values indicating that they are above the ground). This gives RockWorks the ability to interpolate the grids across the entire site. When you model this, use the alluvium base as the constraining surface so it cuts the units above that grid surface. You may also need to get your units below your data to extend the beds that may not have been seen in the deeper holes. Ideally, if you run the stratigraphy model without onlap or overlap (using none) you shouldn't see any overlapping layers because you are forcing an average thickness of the units where you don't have the data. We are working on an update to RockWorks that will give you the ability to truncate your striplogs in the sections so it doesn't show the data above 0 and below your TD so all of the inferred units in your logs will not display. This allows you to keep single boreholes and not duplicate holes with the extra data. If you have any more questions please contact me directly.
  19. A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: + Added 2 additional stock animations to the RockPlot3D Video export, for rotations around the model's Z axis. + In the 2D Striplog I-Text was not correctly centered if the font angle wasn't Horizontal, Vertical or Diagonal. + The Projection Data stored in the grid and solid models now shows the units (meters vs feet) and excludes information about projections that aren't being used. + The Block Model Grade Statistics by Level program was calculating volumes using the Data Input units instead of the units of the solid model. + In the 2D Striplog the Zero Thickness Expand thickness value wasn't being saved. + The Utilities / Survey / XYZ --> Optimum Path / Plot 3D Path wasn't outputting a diagram. + Imported Surfer Binary grids now calculate the Y Spacing correctly. + Improvements to using the Help as local files: The help was not shown correctly if the computer did not have an Internet connection. The Test function in the Preferences menu was not using the correct path to the files. Also the Test function will extract the files immediately in order to test them. The help Zip file contains folder references, so the path to the help files in the preferences excludes "WebHelp" and refers to folder where WebHelp is to be installed and used. When a new Help Zip file is included in the installation and the user is using the local help, the zip file extraction is executed earlier in the RockWorks start up process to avoid file sharing problems. This does add some extra time for RockWorks to start when a new zip file is included. + Import and Export of Multiple tables Import and Export of Multiple tables were not consistent in the use of computer settings. RockWorks will now save and restore backups internally using US format settings. This allows sharing the archive files between computers with different format settings. Users manually creating or adding to the file will need to be aware of this specially for floating point numbers and dates. When a project table has a single quotation mark (') (as in Section A-A') the import will now import it. Some Unicode characters in field names caused the import to not find query parameters, causing the import to fail. + Reportworks Improvements: The background grid in Reportworks is now drawn correctly when the units are set to centimeters. The background grid in Reportworks is now set to 2 centimeters when set for centimeters. In Reportworks the coordinates for the Line and Rectangle dialog are now shown and can be modified by the user. In the Reportworks Line dialog buttons have been added to make the line Vertical or Horizontal. To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks17.

  20. LogPlot 8 2018.2.28

    New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today with the following changes. + The Curve Legends weren't always drawing correctly. + The color button dialog no longer returns invalid colors if the user chooses a custom color. + All the color buttons in LogPlot now save and load the custom colors from the color dialog. + Regional settings are concatenating decimal numbers. Numbers are parsed using US settings, text that are incidentally numbers (e.g. Vertical text) are imported as is (no change) + Fine tuned the placement of Lithology Descriptions that overlapped page tops and bottoms. + Interval text was overlapping the page top and bottom for Center and Bottom Alignment.

  21. Lineation Gridding

    Hi Isabella, I was able to create a lineation grid and map in RockWorks 17 but I suspect your problem has to do with your output settings. You have end points in degrees, your midpoints in local coordinates (from 0,0 degrees) and I have no idea what you Project or Output settings are. I'd suggest converting your coordinates to your project coordinate system and scanning to make sure that your lines fall withing the output coordinates. Use Coords/Coordinate Converter (Multiple Points) and then use Scan Datasheet. Mitch
  22. Lineation Gridding

    I need to make a lineation map and I can't do it. I generate the lineation map, but when I try to generate a gridding lineation, the process is 82% and not concluded. I imported the DXF file with the x1, y1 and x2, y2, then I created the table with lineation properties, but I can't generate the contour map of frequency and length. Could you help me, please? lineation properties.rar
  23. I am using the stratigraphy section of the borehole manager to generate models which include a faults table to offset the the units. I have been having difficulty preserving the thickness of the units either side of the fault, which also relates a notable shift in thickness when I run either IDW or Kriging model runs. I have found underlap to preserve the fault sense more accurately but in scenarios with limited data at depth (LHS of the attached strat model) on the east of the linked site map how would rockworks best preserve the trend/dip and thicknesses. Chris
  24. A user has reported a DLL error running the Safety Factor Calculations in RockPack III on a Windows 10 64-bit computer: Class not registered. You need the following file to be installed on your machine. MSSTDFMT.DLL. This is a DLL which is apparently not installed with newer versions of Windows, and it is required by RockPack III. Solution: 1. Find this DLL: First search your own computer for MSSTDFMT.DLL. If you cannot find it locally, search your company network computers for known safe copies of this DLL (probably from installations of older software). If you cannot find it on your network, you can also do a search on the microsoft.com site. We do not recommend downloading DLLs from "DLL Download" websites. 2. Once you locate a copy of the MSSTDFMT.DLL file, copy it to one of these system folders: If you have a 32-bit computer: c:\windows\system32\ If you have a 64-bit computer: c:\windows\syswow64\ 3. Register the DLL In the Search box on the Windows 10 taskbar, type in: cmd You should see the "Command Prompt, Desktop App" displayed in the results. Right-click on this item and select Run As Administrator. Click Yes if prompted to confirm it's ok for this program to make changes to your system. At the command prompt, type one of the following and press the Enter key: 32-bit: regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\msstdfmt.dll 64-bit: regsvr32 c:\windows\syswow64\msstdfmt.dll Note that there is a space between "regsvr32" and "c:\windows\..." If the registration is successful you'll be notified as such. Here is a quick video of how to access the command prompt. 4. Start RockPack III and see if the tools in the Safety Factors Calculations menu now launch. Contact our support group if you need additional information. Molly RockWare Inc.
