  1. Export to MODFLOW

    Dear Alison, thanks for following up my post, great news! I am so excited to try that new feature in the coming versions of Rockworks. I'll appreciate to have any further information about it. Sincerely, Rudy
  2. Export to MODFLOW

    Dear Rockworks Developers, In some cases, a lithological model can replicate complex geology and aquifer heterogenities better than stratigraphic models. Rockworks is already integrated with an attractive tool requiers more attention and effort for further development. As already known, Rockworks are being used by hydrogeologists for decades, helping by interpreting and modeling their hydrochemical and hydrological data, thus, it would be great to see type of link or coupling between Rockworks and available groundwater modeling GUI (e.g. Aquaveo GMS, GW Vistas, Visual Modflow..). So far, the Export - Modflow function utilize a .Dis dimesnion file to export different zones of each specified G Value, but constructing a conceptual model requers thicking about different way to do that.. So it would be so great to make it possible to export a lithological model into another Modflow format (e.g. .NAM, .IN ...etc). thanks for your consideration
  3. Dear Rockworks technical team, I'm going to use Rockworks 17 to construct 3D stratigraphic model determined generally by 3 main layers from the top to base as follows: Quaternary/ alluvium Neogene/ Limestone Paleogene/ Clayey Limestone Grid and model dimensions are: 100 x 100 x 5 The Quaternary sediments fill the depressions of the model. Modeling option: -Inverse Distance was selected as interpolation algorithm with additional options, including Decluster (Average), Smooth (2x2), Faulted (2D Fault). -Modeling Sequence Base-to-Top (Onlap) -Constraining Surface: Truncate Units above ground surface/ Replace top surface with ground surface -Hide thin Zones: 0.005 Problem: After successful running the interpolation, the Quaternary sediment extends over the whole region despite no Quaternary deposits are recorded in the boreholes. I tried to increase the model resolution, playing with cutoff value, using different interpolation algorithms.. but nothing is changed. (Please have a look on the screenshot) any suggestions to bypass this issue? thanks, Rudy
  4. Stratigraphic Modeling, Interpolation extend

    Hi Tom, thanks! I will try to improve it further, but why I cannot upload a screenshot here are there any size limitation for each topic? thanks
  5. Stratigraphic Modeling, Interpolation extend

    Dear Tom, thanks for your support. I finished the model yesterday and I pleased to share you the result I don't know why " There was a problem processing the uploaded file. Please contact us for assistance " Actually, I based on the tools: Raster calculation, Polygon clip, and substitute surface (for the Neogene and Paleogene). Regards, Rudy
  6. Stratigraphic Modeling, Interpolation extend

    Dear Tom, thank you so much for your help. I've just few questions: 1. Should I deactivate the option/ replace top suface with ground surface? 2. Do you construct the Quaternary top and bottom based on boreholes elevation? 3. Could you please provide me with the your modified version of the project for comparison purpose. please accept my sincere appreciation. Rudy
  7. Stratigraphic Modeling, Interpolation extend

    Dear Tom, No changes after snapping wells to surface topography, I uploaded a backup of the project as requested (File name: Backup_Rudy.rar). I also enclosed the shape files represent the real Quaternary and Neogene boundaries. Best Regards, Rudy
  8. Stratigraphic Modeling, Interpolation extend

    Hi Tom, Thanks for your support. In the southeastern corner, the yellow Neogene deposits pinched out of the Paleogene formation once I activate the maximum interpolation distance to 20%. However, I tired with 5 and 10%, but the result was a clustered small circles surrounding boreholes. I'll try to snap all boreholes to the surface grid elevation and see if it can solve the problem. I will send you a copy if it doesn't work. Sincerely, Rudy
  9. Stratigraphic Modeling, Interpolation extend

    I'm wondering if the difference between the borehole Z elevation and the DEM could cause such problem! By the way, how to snap them to the topographic surface?
  10. Stratigraphic Modeling, Interpolation extend

    Dear Tom, Unfortunately, results of zero-thickness option didn't provide good results (almost no changes). I increased the cutoff to 1, 20% maximum interpolation distance. The interpolation continues trends for the Quaternary deposits! For each borehole I inserted new stratigraphic formation belongs to the Quaternary as follows: Depth to Top Depth to Base Formation 1 0 0 Quaternary 2 0 50 Neogene 3 50 100 Aquitanian 4 100 200 Paleogene The depths measured from the elevation. please any advice? thanks, Rudy
  11. Stratigraphic Modeling, Interpolation extend

    Hi Tom, thank you so much for your quick response. I would try the second option which seems more reasonable (giving zero thicknesses). Unfortunately, polygon clipping option requires a lot of post-processing and time for smoothing grids. I think the most challenging issue in Rockworks is how to replicate complex stratigraphic succession. So it would be so appreciated when Rockware put Stratigraphic package on the subsequent development plan. I'll tell you about the results. Thanks
  12. Advanced Stratigraphic Model

    Hi RockWare Forum members and support team, after manual contraction of a 3D Stratigraphic model (Advanced Stratigraphic modeling), it is common to see cutting edges around the boundaries of each layer. What is the best way to smooth those edges and minimize the difference between layers? I usually use Grid Editing tool, but it is rather difficult and tedious in some complex cases particularly in higher resolution models. Any suggestions or protocol to follow solving such issue? all the best, Rudy
  13. Advanced Stratigraphic Model

    Hi Tom, that sounds good. thanks! I will try. Regards, Rudy
  14. Advanced Stratigraphic Model

    Hi Tom, I guess in this case I have to generate each surface again (Grid --> Math), since the residual between each two contacts will be larger. Regards, Rudy A
  15. RockWorks17 2017.6.1

    Hi Mitch, Thanks for your help it works fine now
  16. RockWorks17 2017.6.1

    Hi, Mouse Scroll wheel not working (3D Window by zooming in or out)! any one encountered such issue? Regards,
  17. Beginers Issue

    That is easy to so with Rockworks. You Can exaggerate the cross section from the 2D window, or to setup your section from the 2D layout setting.
  18. lithology plan

    Hi, I guess you should consider them as a boreholes, and then model the lithological distribution using 2D lithological modeling option. hope this could help you,
  19. How to Bring Modeled surface up to ground surface?

    Use advanced stratigraphic modeling option in RockWork by constructing the uppermost layer using grid edit and clip tools. I suggest you to have a look through some videos regarding this topic in YouTube. Hope this can help you
  20. Error in the GUI of RockWorks 16

    Hi all, I am wondering if you faced such a problem regarding the GUI running RockWork 16 with a high screen resolution of 1920 x 1080? when I start Rockwork the main menu and other windows show black spot of polygons in the background like distortions so that I couldn't read texts behind them. I would appreciate you experience to solve this issue thanks I am using: Windows 7 pro 64 bit screen resolution 1920x1080 12GB RAM Intel i7- 2860QM 500 GB SSD
  21. Error in the GUI of RockWorks 16

    it was really confusing because I didn't face such a problem with other installed software on my PC. it would be appreciated regarding the test program thanks
  22. Error in the GUI of RockWorks 16

    Hi Mitch, I tired all options.. I still have the same problem. thanks
  23. Error in the GUI of RockWorks 16

    Unfortunately, not working
  24. Error in the GUI of RockWorks 16

    Hi Mitch, thank you very much for your replay, the graphic card in my laptop is NVIDIA Quadro 1000M (2GB) plus Intel HD 3000 2GB the color adjusted to true color with 32bit I just tried to change the display resolution, but it didn't work. However, this problem appears only with RockWork16 (all other software working well even Rockwork 15). I will try to change the color setting and inform you soon thanks
  25. I-Data model

    Dear all, please anyone has a solution for the problem shown in the attached screenshot. after running the model there are no data the Interior areas along the lake boundary! the objective was to clip the model to the boundary polygon using filter to polygon option of the solid model. any suggestion would be appreciated thanks Rudy
