  1. 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 [email protected] 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.
  16. After looking at my data-set more thoroughly, I found out that there is no top half to the 800-2000 ppm plume which is due to the absence of a clean delineation zone (ie soil results below 800 ppm) between the top half of the plume and the surface. In other words, high value results are magnified to the surface. Would the extract by solid menu command be able to account for the a hollow center (in this case the hallow center would be >2000 ppm) in the report for contaminated soil and overburden soil volumes?
  17. I am a bit confused with your approach. The ore contaminate grade solid is is a Boolean so the filtering process will not work (The section where you select the lower and upper thresholds) and doing so gives you an error stating that all ore has been removed by filter settings. What I am interested in using the I-Data | Volumetrics for is to create an excavation pit which shows the elevation to where contaminated soil will be dug out. Could this easily be done using the solid | conversion | Total Waste Thickness to grid menu command? Since the extract solid under the utilities tab does the job, I am guessing I don't know the exact purpose of the I-Data Volumetrics menu command other than making use of the various advanced filtering purposes. Is there a disadvantage or any kinds of differences in outputs, especially if I created some models in the borehole tab and then going to the utilities tab. I am assuming the menu commands and the outputs are the same in the utilities/borehole manager. I ended up verifying this by looking at the model outputs of the same data-set and the volumes are the same at a set grade level. I have Lead contamination that will be cleaned up 2 different ways: Lead contamination from 800-2000 ppm will be treated with a chemical and lead contamination 2000 ppm and above will be excavated. In essence the >2000 ppm plume would be enclosed in the 800-2000 ppm plume. The extract solid menu command is able to capture the bottom part of the 800-2000 ppm plume but is unable to capture the top half. That is the only issue i have came across with the extract solid menu command. Other than, it does exactly what i want it to do: The excavation pit (Which can be used with grid math menu command to subtract from the surface to get an idea of the depth of soil that will be dug out across the contaminated area) and the excavation report.
  18. I was wondering how to get outputs similar to Extract Solid under the Utilities Tab using the I-Data Volumetrics tool under borehole manager? I figured out that you can extract a track from the borehole manager and send the data to the utilities tab and then run the extract solid tool. What I like about the Extract Solid Tool is that it outputs an excavation pit which shows the ground surface elevation after all the overburden and contaminated soil is cleared with waste solid model lying on top.
  19. When I initially played around with the depth interval in the Re-sampling options, the output was not coming out right. I revisited the tool a week later messing around with the re-sampling options and figured I should try an intervals as small as a 1/16 of a foot and it worked! I set the scaling back to automatic instead of using the scale at the mentioned 4000 and filled the portion above the value of 800. The outcome was acceptable and I think the engineers will approve of this style. It would be a nice request for the next variant of RockWorks(is built into RockWorks 16?) to give the user the option to clip the curve when a user sets the scale, just like in the I-Data options.
  20. Hi Tom, I tried your idea of setting the cutoff value to fill the portion of the curve above 799 but the outcome looks a bit off (See attached photo). If part of the curve dips below 800, the portion of the curve is still filled along the line. It is hard to gauge where the 800 cutoff value is at since there is not a consistent line cutting off any portion of of the curve above 800.
  21. Thanks for the speedy response Tom. Well your idea worked but introduced a new problem. Anything beyond 4000 has been replaced with 4000 which changes the actual data point results. https://www.dropbox.com/s/jd1yso7xr4mjqqs/2D%20StriplogUpdate.jpg Here is a brief rundown of the product i am creating. I am trying to make a multi-log map for a client and he wants the cut off value to be set at 4000 set for the two measuring methods we are using on site; Analytical and XRF. The exceedance level for this particular contamination we are looking at is 800 ppm. While looking at various logs on a Multi-Log map, the engineers need to focus on sample locations, known as boreholes in Rockworks, that are 800 ppm or above. 800 is a multiple of 4000, the engineers can easily pinpoint samples above an exceedance level since the first subdivision line is 800 ppm.
  22. I am having an issue with a 2D striplog I am creating (See picture link below). I created a graph using Point data and specified a max cut off value of 4000 but the fill curve is going out beyond the 4000 mark. Is there a way to clip the graph? That option is available when potting Interval data. https://www.dropbox.com/s/2b34l1nqmg51b5w/2D%20Striplog.jpg
