  1. 3D Solid Models in Google Earth?

    My last sentence was cut off due link restrictions: The video from last November's webinar on animations https://www.rockware.com/product/galleryYoutube.php?id=165&category=27 (9th video down), gave me some ideas in how I can utilize Google Earth with some of the RockWorks data that I've created.
  2. Is it possible to export solid models to Google Earth? I see that it's possible to export polylines, polygons, and 2D features but not sure about solid model features. Some of the animations that I want to create, such as fly-in's towards hot spots or interesting features and circular fly overs paired with model reveals of some sorth? These are just not possible with the animation tools that RockWorks 16 has to offer. I'm aware that Google earth wont be able to some of the things I mentioned but I at least have the freedom to create custom viewing angles for an animation.

  3. I ran into this error of an invalid floating point operation when trying to create a rotating animation. It is specific to that type of animation since I have no issues trying to create a model reveal animation. I've done the obvious; restart my computer, reset menu settings under preferences, tried another 3-D Diagram. I thought it may have something to do with the project folder so I tried loading up another project but I still ran into the same issue. Any advice on how to solve this issue?
  4. To further add to this discussion, I have found that the coordinate system selected for the utilities spreadsheet does not stick if you re-import an text or excel file. Every time I import a document into the utilities spreadsheet and run a RockWorks function, the coordinate system is wrong. In order to change the default coordinate system that is set in the Utilities tab, you need to go to borehole manager -> Location -> Other Coords. From there, click on Set Entry Defaults, and specify the coordinate you system you are interested in. Hopefully this saves everybody the trouble of finding out how to exactly do this, especially when creating .rcl scripts to import/run rockwork functions multiple times. Just to let the RockWare staff know, I scoured the RockWorks manual and I could not find any information relating to this issue. Can someone confirm this for me?
  5. Sorry for the triple post... Was not aware that the question was submitted multiple times and I am unable to figure out how to delete the duplicate posts. I found that data in the utility tab does not utilize the project coordinates specified in the borehole manager. There is a window to the right in the utilities tab where you specify the project coordinates (See image below).
  6. I am currently trying to create some 3D objects based on point data from ArcMap. The data matches the project dimensions coordinate system but for some reason the Northing/Easting coordinates of the output are different? What could be causing this? I was unable to upload pictures so I had load images into dropbox.

  9. The above idea has been working for me until I came across a case where I would have multiple enclosed polygons and would like to save them to 1 polygon table file. How would you go about doing that? Attached is an example of what I am talking about.
  10. Hey Molly, Both models have the same extents and node spacing since I created models using the same project dimensions. So that should not be an issue. I tried both of your suggestions but had no luck. Multiplying the real number model by the Boolean model did not return return the correct model output. The legend max and min was 0.000001 and -0.000001. I activated a high-stop filter using the the Range Filter command and the output volumes are not correct and or even close to being correct. I ended up sending an email along with a zip file of my models to support@rockware.com. Seth
  11. Steve, I wanted to update you on the the re-sampling step I mentioned above. Disregard what i said about re-sampling the DEM in ArcMap. Even though the raster can be re-sampled to match the project cell dimensions (ie the cell size of the XY project dimensions), it will not match the corner coordinates of the project dimensions. I misunderstood what "project dimensions" really meant, which I thought this whole time it was specifically the xyz spacing cell dimensions of the project area. Now that i have that cleared in up in my head, project dimensions consists of the xyz spacing and the maximum and minimum xyz coordinate extents, which obviously makes more sense. I was successfully able to import the ASCIIGRID file into RockWorks which outputs a .grd file. Next, I used the Resample Command under the Grid->Math Menu in the utilities tab and the output a re-sampled grid. This re-sampled grid could then be used as an upper surface filter for the solid model tool.
  12. I have 2 models that I've converted to Boolean models; model A (volume is 50,000) and model B (Volume is 20,000). Model B is fully encompassed by Model A. What I want to do is delete the area in Model A that is taken up by Model B. What should be left is a hollow model A. When I use the Model and Model Math command menu and subtract model B from model A, the volume for the output should be 30,000 but it ends up being the same as model A. Is my approach with using Boolean models incorrect? How can i convert grade values above a certain value to a static number; ie any voxel that has a grade level above 800 would be converted to 5. Thanks, Seth
  13. Hey Steve, There is a tool in Conversion toolbox that converts a raster into the ASCIIGRID format. And Tom brought up a good point about the project spacing; In order to use your DEM for surface clipping purposes's, the cell size of the raster must match the XY project dimensions, You can get an idea of what the cell size of your DEM is in ArcMap by right clicking the layer in -> properties >Source -> Cell Size under Raster Information. If you need to change the cell size of the raster file, use the Re-sample Tool under the Raster Processing toolbox. I attached a photo to give you an idea of where the tools are located. Let me know how it goes.
  14. Is it possible to convert the boundary of a plume to a polygon? Specifically the outer boundary of a plume (the outline of a plume when looking straight down from above). I have a grid file of a plume that gives me the outer boundary of a plume and would like to use this outer boundary as a clipping feature. Thanks, Seth
  15. Hey Steven, I have been able to import DEM's by converting it to an ESRI ASCIIGRID file (there are other file type options other than the one i mentioned) using the Grid Import menu command in the Utilities tab.
