  1. I am having the same issue with my lithology model. I want the top of my model to look like the surface of the constraining layer, but instead it's just flat. I have made sure that the project dimensions are all the same and I've resampled the constraining grid layers, but the top of my lithology model is just flat. I've tried all the above tips, but still not having any luck. When I open the grid file, the topography is clear, but the same topography is not reflected in the lithology model. I'm not sure what's causing the issue. My project files are uploaded to https://www.rockware.com/upload/

  2. I am trying to build an I-Data model and have been tweaking some settings, but the process is taking way too long. Each time I go back and make a tweak to my settings (e.g. changing the solid modeling options), the process takes over 20 minutes to complete and uses 100% of my computer's cpu resources. I have filtered my boreholes to only those that I-Data (84 total) and there are over 54,000 sampling points between all the boreholes. Is this an excessive amount of sampling intervals? Is there any way that I can speed up the processing time?

  3. Is it possible to drape Google Earth Imagery on top of topographical surface layer in 3D model? I am currently using a USGS topoquad that's been converted to .tiff file, but the imagery is out-of-date and the imagery from Google Earth is more up-to-date. If possible, I'd like to use the more up-to-date imagery.

  4. I am trying to create a surface that lies between the top (ground) surface and a surface below the ground. In other words, the surface I'm trying to model is the 2nd from the top of a total of 3 layers. I want to layer's top to be the base of the ground surface and the bottom of the layer needs to be the same as the top of the underlying layer. I am able to match the layer's top to match the ground topography by using the "Constrain" tool. However, I the layer is bleeding through the layer beneath it and the "on-lap" tool doesn't seems to not be working correctly. Is there another way to create a layer that is sandwiched exactly between the two layers above and below it? I've attached project files for reference. I want the "Upland Unit" layer to be perfectly sandwiched between the "Tobacco Road" layer and the "Surface_lildar4_5m" layer. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  5. I am trying to model some subsurface walls that are being treated as Faults in my 3D model. However, I noticed that the "Faults" are not affecting the shape and extent of the plume. My plume looks the same whether or not I choose "Faulted" from the "Additional Options" menu in the Solid Modeling Options wizard. Also, my plume is not very smooth and has a streaking effect. I'd like to make it look smoother. I've tried using several different Modeling Algorithms and settings within each algorithm, but not looking any better. Could this be because I am using p-data model? The plume also extends to areas with no control points, even if I set the lower iso-level value to just above zero. I've uploaded my project to the Rockworks uploads for reference.

  6. How do I go about setting the default color scheme for 3D models in Rockworks? Each time i change it to the color scheme that I like, it changes back a default color scheme every time the model is recreated. I'm sure this is an easy setting somewhere, but I can't seem to find it.

    Thank you

  7. I am trying to create 3D Strip Logs, and when I run the utility I get an error that says: "Nan is not a valid number". I am using Rockworks 17. I would attach my tables to this forum but it says that "Your aren't permitted to upload this kind of file" (I am trying to upload excel table.)

    Thank you

  8. I am trying to build 3D structural elevations and a 3D model from my Stratigraphic layers. I keep getting the error that "This program requires at least 3 data points". I have way more than 3 data points for each individual layer and I've played with the settings in the gridding options. I can't seem to figure out what's causing the issue. Any ideas?

    Thank you

  9. I am working through the tutorial data that comes with Rockworks 17 and trying to incorporate 3D faults into my block model. I am able to use the tutorial data fault datasheets to create 3D fault files just fine. However, I want to create a fault that begins well below the surface elevation, so I've changed one of the datasheet file's z value column to a lower elevation, but one still within the project dimensions. The fault file is being created and I can view the 3D ribbon, but whenever I enable the faulted feature in the stratigraphy model, nothing happens. How do I make a fault that starts underneath the ground surface?
