  1. Hey Tom, thanks for the answer. I am using the Borehole Manager to create my Solid Stratigraphy Model. I am not quite sure how to import the surface outcrops as boreholes. I have the borders of my stratigraphic layers from a geological map. So at the border I created boreholes of the two stratgraphic layers with a depth of 1 m. But it seems that there is no impact. My Model dimensions might be to coarse for the imput? If I extend the borehole data to 20 m, there is an impact, but this is not true. Or is there a better way? Thank you Joscha
  2. Hey, I want to in clude in my model the information of a geological map. This means I want to tell my modell where , and which layer is cropping out at the surface. Do I have to include this in any grid or is there another possibility? My input data will be from a geological map in gis (shapefile). Thank you very much Jsocha
  3. Including faults in model

    Hey, I want to include the faults in my model but it isn't working yet. I have created a single dip list and a .rwflt file and I plotted it as a 3d dip ribbons. Everything alright. Right now it is just one fault and I used the simple method. Then I created a stratigraphy profile diagram to see the result of the fault. I checked the Faulted menu and attached the .rwflt file. I am using the Inverse Distance algorithm. In the diagramm the fault line is drawn but there is no real "cut" between the fault panels. Instead there is still the smooth interpolation between the two fault panels. I am wondering what I have to change? As well I changed the values for the Distance Multiplier ( 1, 10 , 100 ,1000) and the Distance Increment (1, 10,100,1000) , but I don't see any changes. I will send my project to the support so you can have a look and it might be easier. Thanks again Joscha

    Thank you and sorry for the late answer.
  5. RockWorks15 to RockWorks17 Grid Converter

    Hey Molly, thank you for the advices. I changed the the node spacing from x/y = 20 to x/y =50 and z = 2 to z = 5. There is a quite a big difference. Rendering is much faster. But doesnt the model loose accurency by upscaling the node spaces? If I want to keep my node spacing, is there any way to speed the rendering up? Does the rendering depend on the graphic card? Is a AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series graphic card sufficient? Which graphic card would you recomment? I sent my data to support at rockworks.com thank you, appreciate your help Joscha
  6. RockWorks15 to RockWorks17 Grid Converter

    Hi Molly, very nice. I solved my problems. Adjusting the dimensions of my grid would have been my next question. Thank you. Now that I have created my model I have a question about the visualization and plotting. When I want to zoom in into my model or pan it takes quite a long time rendering and redrawing the model. This makes it hard to work with. I am wondering what are the limitations? - the RAM ? ( i got 8 RAM) - grafic card ? ( i got an AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series) - or some settings do i need some kind of CAD grafik card? thank you, appreciate your help Joscha
  7. RockWorks15 to RockWorks17 Grid Converter

    Hey Molly, thanks for the answer. I found the tool, but it is not quite working. My grid file i have was created in Surfer 10. Does this also work?

  8. Hey, i have a Grid File (.grd) of the surface elevation and I want to import this into Rockworks 17 to have a surface for my stratigraphic model. I am not able to open this. I think I need a .rwgrd file. In the help I found this advice RockWorks15 to RockWorks17 Grid Converter, but I can't find this tool. (In the Help: Look for the RW 15 to 17 Conversion Tool shortcut which is installed with RockWorks17.) Where can I find this or how can I proceed? Thanks , appreciate your help. Joscha Schelhorn
  9. Importing large XYZ Dataset

    hey Brian, thanks for your answer and support. I followed your instructions but it still doesn't work out as I wish. I could generate a surface modell of my data but it took me more than 3 h. Analizing it in RockPlot3D it was also very slow. I know I have a huge dataset with a very high elevation resolution but I think RockWorks is developped to handle big projects. Is there any trick to fasten it up? I have some some basic question for which I can't find an answer in the help and the tutorials. My project idea is: I have a catchment with about 200km2 for which I want to do a complex model which includes - surface model - a subsurface model - stratigraphy - lithology - the aquifers -boreholes - faults - and so on My database consists out of - DEM 50 m resolution (XYZ file with 3 rows and 136 000 rows) - about 100 borehole data - 4 crosssections with the stratigraphy and lithology - aquifer data What do I use for that? The Utilities or the borehole manager? If both, are they connected? Because I am only able to imput my surface data in the utilities. If I am using the borehole manager how is my surface defined? Sorry for bothering you and thanks for your help. I appreciate it Josch
  10. Importing large XYZ Dataset

    Hey, thanks for your help. I cleaned up my textfile by deleating all quotes and unessary information. The new textfile I attached has 80 000 rows and 3 columns with coordinates in long lat and the elevation. (the whole dataset is too big to upload) When creating a new projekt I choose the default folder settings and for the Project coordinates I choose "Local (Custom) longitude latitude in Meters". Is that right? I am wondering because my data is in degree. In the Utitlities Data set I define the columns "x or y coordinates, decimal Degrees". Ok? The scan of the Datasheet works fine. I want to load this data in the Utilities data sheet to create a 2D and 3D Grid-based Map based on xyz data. I use the method decluster. For a smaller amount of rows like 10 000 rows , I have no problems to create the models, even though it is quite slowly. For the whole data set RockWorks calculates about 1.5 h and at the end there is no result shown. Is the data set just too big because its from a DEM with a 50 m resolution? What else could be my problem? Thank you for your help. Greeting Josch zellingen_coord_degree80000.zip
  11. Importing large XYZ Dataset

    Hey , I just started working with RockWorks. I want to do a hydrogeological model. Therefor I have a textfile with 3 columns with the X-Y coordinates and the elevation Z( UTM degree) . In total I have 136 000 rows in the textfile. I have problems importing this whole dataset. RockWorks takes forever importing this data and at the end it just stops. If I only import 1000 rows, there is no problem. No errors and if I double check the data in the earthapps, it is at the desired coordinates and i can work with it. Do you have an idea what is my problem? I think it should be possible for RockWorks to handle this amount of data. I attached an example of my dataset. Thank you for your help Greetings Josch zellingen_coord_degree.txt
