  1. A new version of RockWorks2022 was uploaded to the RockWare website, with bug fixes, improvements, and new features. The RockWorks Revision History includes complete lists, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features: The Input Columns sub-menu that is shared by the programs within the HydroChem menu (Durov, Piper, Schoeller, Stiff, Stiff Map, Ion Balance, Total Dissolved Solids, and Ion Report) now includes options that determine if the input data is in mg/L (milligrams per liter) or mEq/L (milliequivalents per liter). A new option titled "Isolate Geobody that Includes Point Source" has been added to ModOps Solid menu. The solid display options used by many of the RockWorks programs has been re-designed such that IsoMeshes may now be plotted in combination with a voxel diagram. The IsoMesh options within RockWorks now provide greater control over which lines will be plotted and their spacing. A button titled "Close Sub-Menus" has been added to the Layout pull-down menu. The Graphics / Images / Vertical / Single program now includes a tab labeled “Margins”. If enabled, the endpoint coordinates are projected outward to accommodate additional annotation outside of the actual profile. Added 'Edit' menu item to allow user to combine two data types. This works for Stratigraphy, Lithology, Well Construction, Aquifers, Bitmaps, I-Data, I-Text, P-Data, P-Text and T-Data Types Tables. Improvements: The IsoSurface display options now includes an option to display the cap and cutaways as contoured or solid. The Input/Output Models, Cutoff Levels, and Remove Smaller Geobodies submenus within the ModOps / Solid / Filters / GeoBody Filter menu have been consolidated into a single tabbed page. The message that appears upon startup without an internet connection is more explanatory. If less than two boreholes are selected when using the Borehole Manager / Striplogs / Lithology Picker or Stratigraphy Picker, a more explanatory message will be displayed. A concentration option has been added to the Inverse Distance Weighting algorithm for gridding, It adds a non-linear weighting based on distance to the modelling to show a concentrated contouring around data points. Added menu item for Stratigraphy and Lithology Types Tables, the option to turn off all units/materials. 3D Polynomial Trend Modeling changed to use dynamic arrays so it is no longer limited to 2000 points, and all the points are added at once to eliminate re-dimensioning the array at each point. When importing RockWork data types into the Keyword editor you can now choose between the new entry and the current entry when there is a duplicate. The Keyword editor will also prompt you to save when exiting the dialog. Bug Fixes The Graphics >Animate >RockPlot 3D File now correctly generates a video when using the Advanced option. The QuickMap display of the project image was not using the World File or Manual position settings. If less than two boreholes are selected when using the Borehole Manager / Striplogs / Lithology Picker or Stratigraphy Picker, and the Continue button is selected, the program will no longer generate an Access Violation error message. We recommend that Network license users install the RockWare Network License Administrator v. 1.17. Contact support at rockware.com for a link to the latest version.

  2. An updated version of LogPlot2022 was loaded to the RockWare website and includes the following: New Features: Finalized adjustments to Column Legend vertical text to allow centering when high dpi settings are used in exports. LogPlot Curves now wrap when the values go below the minimum value of the range. Improvements: Improved the centering of descending text in the Column Legend in both the LogDesigner and LogView. Users can now add a second line for Titles they wish to show in the Header Column. In the footer, users can display static text or a static note. These items of interest are chosen by using a macros menu in the set up dialog. An option to show scale for the log has now been added to the macro list. Bug Fixes: The Keyword Import from RockWorks now allows you to select the RockWorks project folder and import the keyword. Importing keyword information from a RockWorks database to LogPlot will import the keyword correctly formatted. When importing RockWork's types into the Keyword editor you can now choose between the new entry and the current entry when there is a duplicate. The Keyword editor will also prompt you to save when exiting the dialog.

  3. Hello There, we are able to repeat this offset behavior, which is not correct, and will send it to development for a fix. Thanks for reporting this issue!
  4. A new version of RockWorks2022 was uploaded to the RockWare website, with bug fixes, improvements, and new features. The RockWorks Revision History includes complete lists, by date, of all changes in the program New Features: 3D Faults can now be exported directly to DXF and Shape File formats. 2D Faults can now be exported to DXF and Shape File formats. A new program titled "Migration Simulation" has been added to the Graphics / Animate menu. This program will create animations in which the low values migrate to the high values or vice-versa. A new program titled "Distance to Point" has been added to the ModOps / Solid / Filters menu. This program will replace non-null nodes with values equal the straight-line distances between the nodes and a specified point source. Improvements: The IsoSurface display options now includes an option to display the cap and cutaways as contoured or solid. The coordinate minimum and maximum values have been added to the RockPlot3D file in order to make Embellishing the file clearer. Files will need to be resaved before the extents will be added. The "Use Faults" option within the solid model smoothing dialog is now disabled by default and the option title has been changed to "Use Faults (Very Slow)". Bug Fixes The Graphics >Animate >RockPlot 3D File now correctly generates a video when using the Advanced option. The ModOps / Solid / Math / Solid Math / Constant divided by Solid option now works correctly. The previous version would fail to create a model. The Utilities / 3-D / Triangle Mesh program no longer asks for a title column or line thickness and no longer plots duplicate sets of triangles. We recommend that Network license users install the RockWare Network License Administrator v. 1.15. Contact support at rockware.com for a link to the latest version. To download this build, use the Help | Updates | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks20. RockWorks Link, click on free trial tab: https://www.rockware.com/product/rockworks/ where you can download the installation program and install the new build right over the top of the existing program.

  5. A NEW version of LogPlot2022 was uploaded to the RockWare website and includes the following: New Features: Added a Column Legend option to the Log Design Header that draws a rectangle around the title the user chooses. The rectangle will now move and size itself to a linked log body column. A body outline entity has been added to LogPlot and can be used to surround a depth bar or the entire log body. Users can choose a line style and color and optionally select a solid fill. The title in the Column Legend can now be oriented vertically, either descending or ascending. The new “Single Page” export option allows users to export a paginated log (with a header and footer on each page) as a single page PDF with the header and footer included at the top and bottom of the log. Improvements: The LogPlot Lithology Descriptions placements are now calculated all at once to improve the accuracy of description placement on long logs. While there is a slight increase in the display speeds initially, successive page displays are faster. LogPlot now uses the path of the existing file in the Save As dialog for Log Design, Log View, Data Edit and Template files. If the current file hasn't been saved the path will default to the Project Folder. LogPlot now retains the number of decimals originally entered for interval values displayed as text. Made adding additional fields to the Well Information and Parameters tabs of the LAS export easier and improved going to/from csv files. You can enter a non-breaking space in the RTF editor by typing either Alt+0160 or Alt+255. This depends on the setup of your computer and keyboard. (Non-breaking space has code point 255 decimal (FF hex) in codepage 437 and codepage 850 and code point 160 decimal (A0 hex) in codepage 1252.) Batch Files now store 9 Significant Digits for scale. Offset Lithology Description divider lines can now be drawn with an extended line to make their depth more readable. Users can import a LAS file that doesn't reference a well name in the file. Bug Fixes: Well Construction segments with a non-zero Inner Diameter draw correctly when a non-zero Offset is specified. The Lithology data editor no longer deletes entries that are missing a depth top as long as something has been entered on that row. Exported pattern fill on log body now more closely match the patterns on screen. The LogPlot raster exports are fixed to provide enough space and include the margins. LogPlot7 files with an entity name that ends in a space now loads correctly and will not produce an error. Single line point text using Center Align is centered correctly. You can also refer to the complete LogPlot revision list: https://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/current_logplot_revisions.htm To download this build visit the LogPlot Free Trial tab (https://www.rockware.com/product/logplot/) where you can download the installation program and install the new build. LogPlot 2022 is a separate installation than LogPlot 8. Note that the software will not be automatically licensed if your maintenance has expired before July 31, 2022, and the software will be installed in trial mode.

  6. A new version of RockWorks2022 was uploaded to the RockWare website, with bug fixes, improvements, and new features. The RockWorks Revision History includes complete lists, by date, of all changes in the program New Features: A new program for creating Schoeller diagrams as been added to the Utilities / Hydrochem pull-down menu. The input for this program is similar to the other hydrochemistry program (e.g., Durov, Piper, Stiff, etc.). A program titled “Resampling” has been added to the Borehole Operations / T-Data menu. This program provides a tool to assist in the determination of wells that merit resampling in the future based on the T-Data within each well and its surrounding neighboring wells. The neighboring wells are determined by locating the closest well within each radial of the sectors that surround the well in question. The angle and radius of the sector wedges are user-defined. If the well or its neighbors contain a T-Data value that exceeds a user-defined threshold (e.g., the non-detect limit), the well is flagged as worthy of resampling in the future. The results are saved within an RTF (Rich Text Format) file and automatically loaded into the default RTF application (e.g., Microsoft Word). An automatic resampling option has been added to selected programs that use grids to truncate other grids and solids. The Playlist / Dimensions options now include a button that will copy the current project dimensions into the respective fields. A new Subsite option has been added to the Playlist / Add sub-menu. This option provides a means for switching to sub-sites within a Playlist. A program titled "Surface Map" has been added to the ModOps / Solid sub-menu. Given a solid (block) model and a surface (grid) model, this program will create a grid whose cell values represent the solid model voxel values at the intersections with the surface grid. It is now possible to manually control the minimum and maximum settings (versus the automatic settings) within the Utilities / Map / Radial Diagrams program thereby providing more control for how the data is normalized into the diagram, especially when using the logarithmic scaling option. It is now possible to manually control the minimum and maximum settings (versus the automatic settings) within the Utilities / Map / Barchart Map program thereby providing more control for how the data is normalized into the diagram, especially when using the logarithmic scaling option. In addition, it is now possible to plot either the component titles, the component values, or both. Improvements: The "Strat Rules" tab now includes a blue help button adjacent to the 'Include Additional Contacts' option which will display detailed information about adding supplemental points to the stratigraphic modeling. Improved the positioning of text in RockPlot3D files that are exported to the SketchFab Obj format. Cylindrical bitmaps shown with 3D logs are now stored as one item instead of separate triangles. When isosurfaces are initially displayed within the Plot3D program, the isosurface is set to "Contoured" so that truncated portions of models will be color-contoured. Previous versions would initially display isosurfaces as solid. The Borehole Manager / T-Data / Multiple Solids program is now available within the Standard version of Rockworks. The Import into RockWorks from LogPlot, will check in the folder for LogPlot2022 as well as LogPlot8 and LogPlot7 folders for the keyword file. The Borehole Manager / View / Total Drilled Thickness program no longer includes borehole total depths that are less than zero. This accommodates datasets in which -9999 (or other negative numbers) are used to identify boreholes in which the total depth is not known. The import of Lithology type (or Stratigraphy Types, Construction Types etc.) will set the pattern number to 1 when left blank in the source document during an import from Excel or an ASCII file. Programs that create 3D diagrams now include an option at the top of the Output Options tab that is used to specify the title that will appear within the 3D plotting window. This minimizes the tedium of renaming items within the data tree especially when repeatedly creating composite diagrams by using the Playlist. When exporting a Sketchfab Obj file users can now choose whether the legend will be displayed in the South Edge, Centered or North Edge of the scene. The Utilities / Stats / Univariate program now computes the minimum non-zero value. This is useful when determining the smallest logarithmic cycle for other types of diagrams. RockWorks is expecting the database to have the same name as the project folder. Now when the database is not found in the project folder, RockWorks will look for a database with a different name and offer to use it. This may happen when the folders/files are copied or rearranged outside of the RockWorks interface. The Borehole Operations / Stratigraphy / Layered Model program now includes options for assigning fault g-values to the model nodes if the output is to be saved as a solid model. User can now specify to show the Log Title at the top of the log, base of the log, or Top and Base on 3D Log Design tab when building a 3D Striplog diagram. The ModOps/Solid/Edit as Block Model now provides dynamic volume calculations under the Edit tab. You can now manually set the location of a RockPlot2D file from the options dialog in ReportWorks. The Calculation of the XYZ values process will run more quickly now. Also improved the Coordinate conversions between Easting and Northing and the Other Coordinates. Database Import: The user can specify a filter to limit the records imported, specifically from large external databases (the ability to abort the import has also been added). The filter looks like what might be in a SQL WHERE clause. For instance: ([Longitude] between -105.21038 and -105.209168) and ([Latitude] between 39.749242 and 39.7528) Added a halo effect to anchor and single line text in RockPlot2D maps. The option can be accessed from within RockPlot2D and also for Borehole maps and and other 2D maps with labels. Bug Fixes The Utilities / 3-D / Triangle Mesh program no longer asks for a title column or line thickness and no longer plots duplicate sets of triangles. The Graphics / 3D Tools / Merge program will no longer enable random items such as a dimensions cage without user selection. The program will no longer hang-up if the boreholes are colinear in an east/west or north/south direction and the Adjust to 50x50 Nodes Minimum option is checked when using the the Project / Dimensions / Scan / Boreholes tool. Instead, the program will now behave as though the Adjust to 50x50 Nodes Minimum were unchecked if the boreholes are colinear in either an east/west or north/south direction. The Symbol Map now generates the statistics needed for variable circle colors and sizing. Borehole Manager - View | Filter/Select boreholes will correctly form the SQL Statement for Rectilinear regions. Borehole Manager – The File | Export | T-Data | All Tracks option now correctly filters data within the specified time interval. A bug which sporadically and unpredictably caused the stratigraphic modeling to freeze has been fixed. If the program is unable to interpolate a grid model when creating layered stratigraphic models, diagrams, profiles, sections, etc., that grid will be skipped. The previous version would add the grid if it already existed from a previous process. As an example, consider the following scenario: The Stratigraphy / Layered Model program is used to create a diagram based on borehole data for three stratigraphic units named A, B, and C. If all of the borehole data for stratigraphic unit B is removed but it still exists within the Stratigraphy Types table a potential problem could arise. Specifically, the next time that the Stratigraphy / Layered Model program was executed, the program would skip the unit B interpolation but it would still attempt to load the top and base grids for subsequent filtering (e.g., onlapping, etc. top-to-base, base-to-top onlapping filters (and other filters). This potential problem no longer exists. Positive side-effects of this bug-fix include more graceful error handling when stratigraphic units are missing.

  7. A new version of RockWorks2022 was uploaded to the RockWare website, with new features, improvements, and bug fixes. The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program New Features: The Playlist / Dimensions options now include a button that will copy the current project dimensions into the respective fields. A new Subsite option has been added to the Playlist / Add sub-menu. This option provides a means for switching to sub-sites within a Playlist. A new program titled "Solid Model" has been added to the Borehole Operations / Stratigraphy pull-down menu. User can now specify to show the Log Title at the top of the log, base of the log, or Top and Base on 3D Log Design tab when building a 3D Striplog diagram. A program titled "Surface Map" has been added to the ModOps / Solid sub-menu. Improvements: The Utilities / Stats / Univariate program now computes the minimum non-zero value. This is useful when determining the smallest logarithmic cycle for other types of diagrams. When the database is not found in the project folder, RockWorks will look for a database with a different name and offer use it. Added a halo effect to anchor and single line text in RockPlot2D maps. The option can be accessed from within RockPlot2D and also for Borehole maps and and other 2D maps with labels. Borehole Manager - Database Import: The user can specify a filter to limit the records imported, specifically from large external databases (the ability to abort the import has also been added). Bug Fixes The pop-down sub-menus within the Borehole Manager / QuickMap menu are no longer drawn incorrectly (along the right edge of the menu) when the main RockWorks menu is maximized on the third monitor of a three-monitor computer system. Exporting lithology fence diagrams from the RockPlot3D program to Google Earth now works correctly when the input is is Florida State Plane - East coordinates. We recommend that Network license users install the RockWare Network License Administrator v. 1.15. Contact support at rockware.com for a link to the latest version. To download this build, use the Help | Updates | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks20.

  8. A new version of RockWorks2022 was uploaded to the RockWare website, with new features, improvements, and bug fixes. The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features: A Decluster option has been added to the Utilities / Maps / Triangulation Contours program menu and the program will now automatically removed any duplicate points from consideration even if the Decluster option is disabled. The previous version would always execute the declustering thereby decreasing resolution around clustered points. A program titled Radial Diagrams has been added to the Utilities / Maps sub-menu. The Utilities / Stats / Sieve Analysis program now includes an option for plotting vertical lines indicating where the sieve curves intersect a user-defined threshold. This provides a visual indicator that shows the grain sizes above or below a percentage threshold. Improvements: When opening a playlist in a text editor (through the interface), and then making a change, the user will be prompted to write it back to the current Playlist. Since this is more of an edit function, this item was moved to the Edit menu and is shown modally. The Setup / Misc / Enable Randomization options has been removed because the Delunay triangulation option is now hardwired to remove duplicate points. The Utilities / Animations / RockPlot3D -> Animation program is running significantly faster. In some cases, animations that took one or more hours are now produced in a few minutes. Also, the program no longer runs out of memory when rendering complex diagrams. Bug Fixes If the program is unable to interpolate a grid model when creating layered stratigraphic models, diagrams, profiles, sections, etc., that grid will be skipped. A bug which sporadically and unpredictably caused the stratigraphic modeling to freeze has been fixed. Borehole Manager - File | Export | T-Data | All Tracks, in the time interval data tracks to be included is fixed. Borehole Manager - View | Filter/Select boreholes will correctly form the SQL Statement for Rectilinear regions.

  9. A new version of RockWorks2022 was uploaded to the RockWare website, with new features, improvements, and bug fixes. The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features: The Borehole Manager / Lithology / Multivariate Map program has been rewritten and enhanced to include bar chart, spidergram, and blended color maps. The 3D Triangulation Surface program now includes an option for adding a "skirt" around the perimeter of the diagram in which the base elevation is defined by the user. Added a Location Map program to the >Borehole Operations >Maps menu. This programs allows users to create a location diagram for previously created and saved sections, profiles and fences that are stored in the project database. Five new import options have been added to the Lithology Types / File menu. Selecting one of these options will add pre-defined keywords and associated patterns for the selected soil classification system. This will alleviate the drudgery of manually populating a lithology Types table. A new option titled "Merge Lithology & Stratigraphy Tables" has been added to the program that creates custom-color tables. The purpose behind this new capability is to assign colors to a solid model that has been created by merging lithology and stratigraphy models. Search RockWorks Help online for the full write up about custom color updates. The Borehole Manager/Fractures Solid Modeling program has been re-designed and significantly enhanced. These changes apply to geotechnical (tunneling and roadcuts), environmental (contaminant migration pathways), hydrothermal (steam vents), mining (breccia pipes and hydrothermal venting), and petroleum (hydrofracing) applications. A new option titled “Sort By” has been added to the 3D Lithology Legend sub-menu. If the Sort By option is set to Name, the legend will be sorted by the lithology Keyword. If the Sort By option is set to G-Value, the legend will be sorted by the G-Value. Improvements: The size of the RockWorks exe file has been decreased from 659mb to 253mb by relocating some of the help messages. This means that the program loads much faster. Excel/Text Import (Row-based tables) Now displays a red "X" button to close a Block Mapping tab. The selected tab sheet is easier to see with the title bolded. The Combo-Box on the Block Selection tab displays an alternate button ("...") to show the block mapping tab for that selection as a further indicator for the user to look at the mappings. The drop down list can be sized. When loading example datasheets in to RockWorks the program will match datasheet columns with items in the menus. The raster export menus within RockPlot3D will now automatically append the appropriate suffix to the file names if they are omitted. For example, if saving a PNG and “Test” is entered for the file name, the file name will be automatically renamed to “Test.png” if the OK button is clicked. The grid creation dialog will give you an overwrite warning if the Grid file exists. Users can now switch the RockPlot3D Cage units between meters and feet. No projections are changed. The Depth Bar in RockPlot3D can now be switched to display feet or meters. When creating a new project based on an existing project the linked files in the RockPlot3D file are now copied with the RP3D file. No change to any embedded files. Additional font size options have been added to the Sieve Analysis program for the Annotation and Axes. The Annotation font size is activated by an Override check box. Changes have been made to the Lateral Blending algorithm to allow varying degrees of randomization specified by the user. Search in the RockWorks online help to learn more about the changes and see examples in a pdf document. Sort Order for I/P/T-Data table is now honored immediately in the displayed grid after modification by the user. Option now given to Sort tracks either by Name or Order for I/P/T-Data table when using 'multi-track' export. User can now specify the number of decimal places for the track values when using I/P/T-Data multi-track export functionality. The Density increase and decrease button within the Pattern Selection sub-menu now increase and decrease in 0.25 increments thereby minimizing the need to manually specify the Density. In the Polygon Table Editor, you can now import from a datasheet that defines polygon perimeter points. When Editing data in the Borehole Manager (e.g. Lithology) using the 'Edit as a Datasheet' tool, only applicable menu items have been preserved, especially for the Import menu. Bug Fixes Stratigraphy section creation will now continue even if a missing surface is encountered. The Label Decimation checkbox within the 2D diagram Peripherals / Color Legend now properly enables / disables the decimation setting. The Preview button in the RockPlot3D 'Rotate' Animation now displays the rotation axis. (Remember to move the dialog off of RockPlot3D so you can see the preview axis.) Control points outside the clipping region as defined by polygons, superface surfaces, and/or subface surfaces are now used during lateral-extrusion model interpolation. The RockPlot2D Text Table dialog no longer displays the column configuration panel by default. Opening RockPlot3D files from the Project Manager no longer opens with just the caption bar and instead shows the whole window.

  10. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website and includes the following improvements: LogPlot now allows the user to drag and drop files from the Windows File Explorer to quickly open a new log design or data file. The final Lithology Description line will always be shown. A Static Text (#s) item macro has been added to allow adding the short data file name without an extension.

  11. A new version of RockWorks2022 was uploaded to the RockWare website, with new features, improvements, and bug fixes. The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features: You can now copy or paste column titles from/to the datasheet. Since you cannot select the titles row, and determining if the clipboard data has titles would be difficult, these options are separate Edit menu options. If multiple columns are selected, the Paste will start at the first column selected. If no specific columns are selected it will start at the column after the "Use" column. Similarly the Copy will only grab the column titles of the selected columns if multiple columns are selected. If no specific columns are selected it will copy all column titles. Improvements: Improved the drawing of Fence Diagrams utilizing Color Tables. An option to export a grid file in another format has been added to most grid creation and filter functions. Multiple files can now be dragged and dropped from the Windows File Explorer to RockWorks. Execution History is being save in monthly files. They will be deleted automatically after one month. The retention value may be set in Setup | Preferences | Misc. and is one month by default. Select/Filter boreholes allow for unspecified values as where before they were represented by a '0'. Since a '0' is a valid value, it caused erroneous results when assumed as unspecified. Also the value's precision has been changed from 4 to 8 decimal places. Ending dates have been extended in range calculations to better include the ending date. Bug Fixes The logic for manually specifying decimal places for map axes label honors users selected number. The Section and Profile Horizontal Axis spacing Annotation no longer reverses the Automatic and Manual settings for the Tick Mark and Label Spacing.

  13. A new version of RockWorks2021 was uploaded to the RockWare website, with new features, improvements, and bug fixes. The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features: Added a new program, Stratigraphy | Grids->Simple Stratigraphy, that displays a set of surfaces listed in a Utilities Datasheet. A new program titled "Drawdown Grids" has been added to the Utilities | Hydrology pull-down menu. This program will create a series of grid models based on a starting day, an ending day, and time increments. The list of grid models is intended for subsequent animation with the Utilities | Animate | Grids -> Contour Map Animation and Grids -> 3D Surface Animation programs. Unlike the Drawdown Surface program, however, the days cannot be specified on a well-by-well basis. The Input sub-menus within four of the Graphics | Animate programs (shown below with the red box) now include an option to enable or disable the date annotation within the animations. A program titled “Solid Vertical Slice -> Grid” has been added to the ModOps | Solid | Extract | Grids sub-menu. This program may be used to (1) create a grid that represents a vertical slice through a solid model based on two user-defined endpoints, (2) display the grid, and (3) create a report that lists the XYZ coordinates and corresponding solid-model g-values at those locations, that can be saved in a variety of formats. A new program titled “QAPF Diagram” has been added to RockWorks under the Utilities | Stats pull-down menu. This new tool allows users to work with igneous rock classification. Improvements: The editor for working with Project Notes has been improved to include Numbered Bullets as well as Find and Replace options. The Shape Import to RockPlot2D now can apply elevation or other numeric data from either the shape file (shp) or the attribute table (dbf). The Total Depth Grid program now allows users to filter by total depth. Borehole Manager Import workflow can now use a Synonym or Alias table during column-based import of I/P/T-Data to list replacements for various ND (non-data) records. The Editor for viewing a Playlist now has a "Search and Replace" option. The save function will also default to the RWPlaylist file extension. The user can create a fault based on a triangulated surface created from either a datasheet or XYZ data file. Grid Create: The "Dip" Algorithm is mutually exclusive to the other algorithms. It has its own menu item and requires 5 columns as input: X, Y, Z, Direction, and Dip. This algorithm will not work for the generic XYZ to Grid creation. The XYZ to Grid does not show the "Dip" algorithm and the XYZ & Dips to Grid only shows the "Dip" algorithm parameters. Bug Fixes The Hydrology | Drawdown Surface program now saves the output grid to the grid name that is specified and the Duration field decimals have been decreased from 8 to 2. T-Data | Time-Graph, Peripherals, scalebar option removed. You can create a new project based on an existing project using a Custom Coordinate Reference System. This was giving an error. The "Include Aquifer Name" and "Include Sampling Date" options are no longer clipped within the 3D Log Design | Aquifers | Symbols & Captions sub-menu. Since Collar Elevation is no longer a required field, it was showing up as an Optional Field in some places. Borehole Manager | View | Filter | Select boreholes - Using the sizable rectangle to select boreholes works again. Borehole Location Map | Optional Fields now displays the field's short description (display label) instead of the field name. The Y (Northing) Cutoff position was being miscalculated in the Cutoff dialog. The Export to PDF when creating Cross Sections or Profiles now sizes the output files correctly honoring Vertical Exaggerations other than 1 (one).

  14. Suggestion is to use a different PDF print driver. Microsoft PDF printer works for some users.
  15. A new version of RockWorks2021 was uploaded to the RockWare website, with new features, improvements, and bug fixes. The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features: A Pinchout Filter has been added to the Grid|Filters that allows the user to create pinchouts between 2 grid surfaces using either a minimum thickness or a polygon. Users can specify the pinchout to use the top, bottom or average elevation. The Borehole Operations / Striplogs / Lateral Geo-Steering program has been completely redesigned. A program titled “Total Depth Grid” has been added to the Borehole Operations / Maps sub-menu. This program will create and display a grid depicting an interpolated surface that intersects the base of all enabled boreholes. A program titled “Fade With Depth” has been added to the ModOps / Filters sub-menu. This program will decrement voxel values below a specified elevation or a user-defined surface (grid) model. The new (9/7/21) capability for including "supplemental points" when creating stratigraphic models based on borehole data has been enhanced to include optional dip information for the upper and lower contacts. Please note two caveats: (1) This information is only used if the Dip Direction algorithm is used to model the surfaces. (2) If a dip is specified for the top surface of a stratigraphic unit but no elevation is provided, the dip information will be ignored. The same applies to the base. Improvements: The ModOps / Volume / Extract Via Surface Extraction program has been modified and improved. The Time Filter has been added to the Time Graph and Time Graph Map menus. Borehole Manager will now import Point Shapefiles directly into the Location table. The RockPlot2D Scalebar now draw the filled scalebar to appear similar to the peripherals scalebar which it replaces after this change. The endpoint labels can now be displayed left, right, both or no sides. Water level data can be appended to existing data like T-Data in the Single Table Import. There is a check box on the right to Append the data (or not) for Water Levels to allow the user to make this choice to replace or append the data. The RockPlot3D Strat Unit decimates very large grid surfaces when Solid Fill is selected. Users can see the decimation factor in the option dialog and turn decimation off. The drawing of the 3D Stratigraphy Units has been improved to better work with null values and the minimum thickness cutoff. In addition Cutoffs can now be applied. The minimum thickness transparency option has been removed. The RockPlot2D Color Legend now allows you to set a separate Text Interval form the Color Interval. The Text and Color Interval must both divide evenly into the Z Range and a warning will be issued by the dialog. A Copy File command has been added to the Playlist Add menu at the top. Bug Fixes The 'Perform Smoothing Last' option for Solid Models now operates whether the Smoothing option is enabled or not. The RockPlot3D Export for Sketchfab will now plot all the Legend values for a custom table when transferred to Sketchfab. RockPlot2D Rectangles now use 4 points so that they can be properly converted to Latitude/Longitude Degrees and will appear correctly in Google Earth Vector files. The Borehole Surface Intersection now correctly omits boreholes that don't intersect the surface when the Omit option is selected. The Borehole Surface Intersection now correctly marks boreholes that start below the surface. The Borehole Surface Intersection now shows all the boreholes. RockPlot2D now starts in zoom rather than edit mode. Borehole Manager | Import Multiple Tables (Excel & Text) for the tables I-Data, I-Text, P-Data, P-Text, and T-Data the existing tracks will now be cleared when Replace Data is checked. Borehole Manager | Exports | ... All Tracks will now account for regional formatting (i.e. comma as a decimal separator) I-Data, I-Text, P-Data, P-Text, T-Data. Empty column values in the import are set to NULL for field values in Playlist CSV Import process. Borehole Operations Maps | Google Earth (Simple or Advanced) was giving a DB error. RockWorks allows CollarElevation to be NULL, however the function to choose the Elevation value when CollarElevation was NULL was making the field read-only. RockWorks will now allow coded Coordinate Systems (like epsg:2877) that are based in U.S. Surveyor's Feet. Upgrading a project from RW17 that uses a custom coordinate system and an "Init" style code (like epsg or esri) will succeed. The PROJ generic coordinate transformation software RockWare applies used to change how it handled "Init" parameters.
