  1. Project Datum - NAD 27

    Hi, I am using Rockworks 17 Advanced and can select the "other" coordinates for custom projection without any problem. The issue is that one of my coworkers is also using Rockworks 17 Advanced and he the tab for "other" does not come up on his computer (he can only see the options of Local, SPC and UTM). What may be causing this?
  2. Setting a custom projection

    I use Rockworks 17 Advanced. I can create custom projections but a co-worker that also uses Rockworks 17 advanced cannot. What might be causing this?
  3. DEM

    Hi, There are many gridding options in Rockworks and the use of each one gives different results depending on the algorithm that you choose which I find to be overwhelming since none of them are particularly attractive. I personally like the type of grids created with SURFER (Krigging) and ArcGIS (TopoToRaster). I have not found one in Rockworks that can reproduce either of these. I would suggest that if you have XYZ data and have plotted it in another program that creates a grid to you liking that you use the Rockworks Utilities Program to import that grid using Utilities/Grid/Import and select the source data format that you have your grid in. There you can give it a name and follow the other steps mentioned above. To put it in shorter terms, my experience has been gridding is NOT one of Rockworks strongpoints and needs to be improved, however it does accept grids created in other programs, which is nice. Best Regards, Edward Hakanson
  4. Suggestion for Rockworks 17

    Hi, I see that in Rockworks 17 2D Striplogs there is an option to plot a deviated borehole vertically. That is great, however it plots the measured depth and not the true vertical depth. Please make it so that the measured depth is displayed but alongside the true vertical length. I have achieved this effect by setting the azimuth constant and viewing the borehole head on so that I only visualize the effect for borehole inclination. This method works but would be smoother if incorporated with plot vertically in the 2D Striplog option. I suggest that there be an option for this in the borehole sections too (they plot wells vertically but of the measured depth so adjacent boreholes are not comparable to one another). I know that Rockworks can do this. Please include it in your programming language (maybe it could be done with with an RCL extension that says something like .... Inclination True, Azimuth False ... or something like that). Best Regards, Edward Charles Hakanson Gregory
  5. P-Data not importing correctly

    Maybe you could generate a P-Text file and plot it alongside your P-Data.
  6. Creating Rotated Text in ReportWorks

    One thing that you might try is creating rotated text in RW2D and then linking that file to your Reportworks file.
  7. Borehole Plots above Model

    Try adjusting the VE of your model and boreholes individually and then do an append. This may work.
  8. refining solid model - null values or 0?

    Hi. I face a similar problem when I map down hole clay samples. I have found that entering 0s works when what I want is a 2D log but if it is 3D then simply omitting values where there is no detection best. It really depends on how you want to display the data. However I would like to know what the optimum method is from an experienced Rockworks user.
  9. Striplog design

    Hi Aditya, Another thing that you may want to try if it is the description of thin units that is causing you problems is to widen the column where the lithological text is plotted. If this is unpractical then you may want to try including the text descriptions as I-Text which would allow you to create multiline text and plot it alongside your lithologic column. This, in addition to Brian's suggestion, may help you out. Edward
  10. Project Management

    Hi, I need to copy some specific information from one RW16 project to another. For example, I need to know an easy way to transfer new P-data that has been entered into one Project for 59 different wells into another Project which contains the same wells. Also, I need to know how to do the same with stratigraphy and lithology data. I have tried transferring p-data to a text file and then opening it in Excel to later import the Excel file to the p-data table (which worked) but would like to know if there is a simpler way of doing it. Also regarding the stratigraphy data I tried transferring it to the Utilities Datasheet to then save the rwdat file and open it up in another Project. However when I tried to transfer that new information from the Utilities Datasheet to the Borehole manager in my second Project it didn’t transfer anything. Soon I will need to do the same with some lithology data also. I would really like to avoid having to input all of the information again when I transfer data from one Project to another. Edward
  11. Hi Anu, If your data is not associated with boreholes then your best option may be entering your data into the Utilities Datasheet. This would work great if each of these parameters have been determined for each sample and sample location. With that you could use the EZ Map to plot your data with different colors, symbols and sizes depending upon you data. Hope this helps. Edward
  12. patterns fail to display in 2d Stratigraphy legend

    Hi Mira, Maybe you could check the density setting of your lithology patterns. Just a thought. Edward
  13. lithology plan

    Great job hosein!! I am happy to hear that you could create your map adequately!!
  14. lithology plan

    Hi, Maybe you could treat each sample point as a separate borehole as rudyaboo suggests and assign a different borehole symbol to represent the different types of information that you want to map. I would also consider trying to do it from within Utilities by and then creating a point map. That way you could create different columns with different colors / symbols for representing the points depending upon that characteristic that you want to map. There is a little more versatility working with the information from within Utilities depending upon what you really want to display. Also, you cold make various point maps with the different types of information and then append the different maps into one (remember to name each one with something meaningful rather than just "point") so that you can turn on and off the layers once you have done the append process. Hope this can help you out. I would like to know you end up creating your map once you decide upon the best method. Best Regards, Edward
  15. Strip map width (includes distant collars)

    Hi David, I think that you could resolve the problem of strip map width by adjusting the width from within the 2D Striplog manager. That is if I understand correctly the problem that you are experiencing. If on the other hand it is the borehole location map that RW generates when you make a profile that is giving you trouble a possible solution could be using the crop tool to select only the area of the location map that you want to include. Hope this helps. Edward
  16. Adding topography

    Hi David, I still consider myself a bit novice Rockworks user but I have found that in Rockworks 16 Level 5 that there is an option to open up Rockplot 3D from the dropdown menú on the upper right corner of the screen that allows you to import a dxf file directly for visualization. I have not yet found how to easily manipulate a dxf file to make necesary changes (like lines with zero elevation, for example). However I imagine that it could be done with Utilities by searching for and changing the values one by one or on the contrary reverting to the original dxf file to make the corrections. Best Regards, Edward Hakanson
  17. Plotting lables in RW3D

    Hi, I am plotting lables at the endpoint of my boreholes in RW3D (takeing the endpoint of each well and plotting it in RW3D with the asociated label). I would like the label to be centered with respect to the borehole itself and offset a little bit below it. I saw the options for vertical offset and %offset but nothing related to horizontal offset. I have played with the vertical offset and that gets my lables far enough below the borehole trace and the % offset seems to move the label in the horizontal plane but I am not sure how it works or if there is an easier way to center lables at the end of borehole traces in RW3D.
  18. Excel not installed???

    Hi. I am trying to do a batch export of my borehole data to Excel. Previously I could do this with no problem but now an error message is showing up that says it appears that Excel is not installed on this computer. Wierd.
  19. Excel not installed???

    Hi, The problem hasn't arisen for awhile but the last time it did I noticed that the destination folder was on another computer (we are working on a network) so I changed it to a folder on my own computer and that solved the problem. Edward
  20. Hi, I have noticed that when I export stratigraphy data to Excel via Bulk Export I get slightly different values for unit top and base elevations when compared to the calculations done in the borehole survey. Why might this be? Note: The difference is greater as the distance between surveys increases and is especially off with the total depth of the well (9 meters off).
  21. Difference in calculated values in Exported data and Borehole Survey data

    Hi Molly, I sent a backup to support at rockware.com. I'll wait to hear back on this issue. Best Regards, Edward
  22. The fact that the sections plot logs as vertical is great, however that should be done with the true vertical depth of deviated Wells rather than the measured depth so that it coincides with the elevation scales. Regards, Edward
  23. Hi, I have had a similar problem plotting vertical striplogs of deviated Wells. One work around is to set the azimuth to zero and let the view angle of the 2D log be zero. That will put your striplogs in TVD (you'll need to insert a vertical scale in your 2D log to see this because all of the contact depth will still be displayed in MD if you have them turned on). So that you don't loose your directional data you can save it as a an .rwdat file. Then you could display your vertical logs as above. Regards, Edward
  24. Hi, I am having a problem that didn´t occur previouosly. With Rockware 16, Level 5 I am copying data from the borehole survey screen to the utilities data sheet so that I can use the EasyMap tool to plot some points of interest. I know that I could do this point by point from within the borehole survey tool but my need is to plot various points so that is why I copy them into the Utilities datasheet to plot them using EasyMap, however the X and Y coordinates get all messed up (the z coordinates are alright). I have done scan datasheet and it shows the coordinates are way off. It seems as though maybe somewhere in the program the actual coordiinates in the table may be being multiplied by some factor or something. Can you help me with this?
  25. Licence server versión 1.03

    Hi, We are having a problema with Rockworks. One of my coworkers is unable to access the network license because she is getting a message saying that the license server is versión 1.01 and that it needs to be 1.03. Can you help us with this?
