  1. Good morning Mathieu,


    Based on the screenshot you had provided I would suggest increasing the width of your Legend at the bottom of the Color Legend tab, and once you have done that you can adjust the right and center margins by increasing or decreasing them to get to the font size you need.




  2. Good morning,


    You may want to check the elevations that you are currently using for those individual boreholes and confirm that they are correct. It also looks like you are using a superface/subface to constrain your model so the grids that you are using to constrain the model could also be cutting off those particular boreholes which is why you are seeing them above and below the surface of the model.

  3. Good morning Mathieu,


    If you already have the XY coordinates for the 200 locations you can use the tool ModOps / Grid / Statistics / Residuals. What this tool will do is compare the XY coordinates that you have uploaded in to the Utilities database (you can leave the Z value as 0) to the grid that you have selected and then tell you the Z (Predicted) value for the grid you have selected and the residuals which is the Z value of your XY coordinates subtracted by the predicted value. In this situation you can ignore the residuals value as you are just trying to find the predicted value for those coordinates.

  4. Good morning Mathieu,


    At this time we do not have a way to adjust the north orientation in RockWorks so you cannot set your grid and model dimensions to the red rectangle in your image. What you can do as a potential work around is create a polygon in RockWorks similar to your red rectangle and then use that to confine your grid & 3D models so you are not getting the additional space where you do not have any control points. 


    Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  5. Good morning Mark,


    We do still have the export options out to Groundwater Vistas as well as other options that you can use. Once you have created your model you can export it out of RockWorks by using the ModOps / Solid / Export tool. The export options include both Groundwater Vistas Matrix or Zone, and with the "Other Formats" option we also have the ability to export out your model to ASCII XYZG, NOeSYS, Slicer Dicer, ESRI Shape Point and netCdf.



  6. Mathieu,


    At this time we do not have a way to select different data for individual logs within a profile, the only option currently is a one log type for all where you select the data that will be presented for each log in the 2D striplog designer.

  7. Good morning Mathieu,


    What format is your bathymetric map in? Under the Graphics / Images Tools we do have a few options for Georeferencing an image to bring it into a RockPlot2D window, draping an image using an existing grid file, or floating an image at a specific elevation.


    Regarding the 2D profiles, are you using the bathymetric map to create a surface grid for your 2D profiles? Once you have brought an image into RockWorks and georeferenced it you can use the Graphics / Images / Digitize tool to digitize the contour lines within the image, and then using Utilities / Create / Grid -> XYZ you can create a grid of your digitized data.

  8. If you have changed your preferences to have the Help Documentation downloaded locally onto your computer, you may receive an Access Error violation when upgrading to RockWorks Revision 2021.2.9. This error occurs as there is an issue with correctly unzipping the updated Help Documentation onto your computer. If you do receive this error message, please follow the steps below to resolve this issue.






    The best way to correct this problem is to edit your RockWorks System.ini file. To get to this file you will need to go to C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Local\RockWare\RockWorks20, and then open the System.ini file in a text editor like Notepad. AppData is a hidden folder, so you can either type it into the file path at the top, or in your File Explorer options check the Hidden Items option.






    Once you have the System.ini file open in a text editor, you will need to scroll down to the HELP_FROM_INTERNET option and change it from =0 to =1, and then save the file.




    After you have saved the System.ini file with that change, then please start up RockWorks again and hopefully this should resolve the issue. After RockWorks has started up you can go back into the preferences option and re-select saving the help file locally.

  9. Good morning Doug,


    We have two links on our RockWorks 2020 help page that I have included below that may answer your question.

    • Stereonet Gridding Options (https://help.rockware.com/rockworks/WebHelp/stereonet_grid.htm)
    • Stereonet Statistical Summary (https://help.rockware.com/rockworks/WebHelp/stereonet_stats.htm)

    If you have any other questions please let us know!

  10. The issue that was causing this error was that there were boreholes that had dates listed as pre-1900. This is not an issue within RockWorks, but when exporting out to Excel you will receive the OLE error message as Excel's dating options technically do not start until 1/1/1900. Excel will halt the export as it views those dates being exported out pre-1900 as "negative dates." If the dates are updated to show after 1/1/1900 then the export should go through without issues.

  11. Chris,


    After discussing with one of our developers I believe the issue is the pound sign (#) that you have in your project name. For some reason Google Earth does not like that, but after we removed the pound sign from the project name it exported to Google Earth without any issues.

  12. Good morning Chris,


    Thank you very much for sending over the backup of your database. I am getting the same red X as you when I try to export your data into Google Earth. We believe the issue may be stemming from google earth itself as it appears to be having some outage issues at this time. I will monitor the issue and try again later today to see if it is corrected.





  13. Good afternoon Laure,


    Thank you very much for your question regarding bringing in your geophysical data into RockWorks17. What format is your geophysical data in by chance? If it is formatted in X/Y/Z/G data then you should be able to bring it into the datasheet. If you would like to send us your data at tech@rockware.com we would be happy to take a look at it and potentially come up with other options of bringing the data in as well.

  14. After receiving the data we are able to discern that there was a difference in coordinate systems from the Utilities datasheet and the project coordinates (UTM meters vs UTM feet). Once that was corrected the contours were projected inside the project dimensions correctly.

  15. Good morning Craig,


    Would you mind backing up your database and sending it to us at tech@rockware.com? I would like to make sure that I am using the correct coordinate system and grid/model dimensions as well as the same setting you were using as I am working with your .rwDat to see if I can replicate the issue that you are running into. Thanks!

  16. Good morning Mike,


    The error you are receiving is likely because your data dictionary is corrupted. I would suggest either deleting, or renaming the system folder for that project and that would let RockWorks rebuild the sql database again and see if that resolves the issue. If you receive the error again could you select Report Error / Restart and send the bug report to tech@rockware.com so we could take a look at that as well?

  17. Good morning,


    I believe the issue that you are running into is because the folder you are currently working on is on a shared folder in OneDrive. To resolve this issue, turn off the syncing function while working with the folder, or move the project to a different non-synced folder. If you continue to have issues please let us know.

  18. Good afternoon,


    You would be able to insert the data into RockWorks and then create a 3D model from it, but you would have to do a little ground work before doing that. You will need to get the x, y coordinates for all of your data points in between your starting and ending points of your lines, and then from there you could import the data into the Utilities Datasheet and create your model. One tool that may help in getting all of your x, y coordinates in between your starting and ending points would be under Utilities -> Survey -> Interpolate Points along Line. This tool is built under the assumption that the data points are all equally spaced apart, so if they are not you would have to calculate your x,y coordinates another way. Please let us know if this works or if you have any other questions.
