  1. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today and include the fix for importing excel sheets that contain empty worksheets through the Multi-sheet import process no longer causes a sorting error. This version also has improvements and the path fixed in the help for LAS Importing. You can also refer to the complete LogPlot revision list: https://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/current_logplot_revisions.htm To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside LogPlot8. Or visit the LogPlot Free Trial tab (https://www.rockware.com/product/logplot/) where you can download the installation program and install the new build right over the top of the existing program. (DO NOT UNINSTALL first.) Note that you will not be able to use this new build of the program if your maintenance has expired before September 30, 2021. If you would like to renew your maintenance, contact RockWare Sales or visit our Customer Portal (https://www.rockware.com/customer) and either create a new account (new visitors) or log in with your existing account.

  2. A new version of RockWorks2021 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, 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: Users can now extract values from a solid model along the path of a borehole. The "speed buttons" along the left edge of the Playlist tab sheet now display the icons on the left side of the text versus the icons being positioned above the text. This decreases the likelihood that options won't be visible when the height of the Playlist tab sheet is vertically reduced. The borehole label font size that is used when plotting the index maps for profiles, sections, projected sections, and fence diagrams may now be adjusted by selecting the File / Options menu. A new option titled “Include Additional Contacts Defined Within RwDat File” has been added to the “Strat. Rules” tab that is shown within all programs that create stratigraphy models based on borehole data. A new program titled "Resample (Fine-to-Coarse)" has been added to the ModOps / Solid / Math sub-menu. This program is used to convert high-resolution solids to low-resolution solids based on a variety of options as shown below. The Borehole Operations / Lithology / 2D Isopach option now displays two options: Voxel-Based and Grid-Based. The Grid-Based option behaves just like the previous version meaning that it generates surfaces based on the uppermost and lowermost occurrences of the selected lithology and then subtracts the lower from the upper surface to create the isopach grid. The new Voxel-Based option simply adds the heights of all voxels that are equal to the designated lithotype to produce the isopach. This new approach will account for voxels in-between the uppermost and lowermost occurrences that don't equal the selected lithotype (i.e. interbeds). Improvements: The Stratigraphy Picker now has the option to snap stratigraphy to an existing lithology contact. Added the ability to extract values from a Solid Model based on XYZ points stored in a datasheet. Added a program to extract values from a grid based on XY points in a datasheet. Users can now use the Aquifer Pattern Table colors for water symbols in 2D and 3D Striplogs. Water level data can be appended to existing data, like T-Data allows. There is a check box on the block mapping tab for Water Levels to allow the user to make the choice to replace or append the data. File | Export | Stratigraphy, will now export for "All Units" or for a single Stratigraphy Unit/Type. The Lithology / 2D Isopach program no longer fits grids to the uppermost and lowermost contacts and subtracts them to produce an isopach grid. Instead, the program simply adds the heights of all voxels that are equal to the designated lithotype to produce the isopach. An option titled "Clear Output Tabs Whenever "Process Playlist" Button Is Clicked" has been added to the Playlist / Configure pull-down menu. If checked, any open output tabs will be closed before the Playlist processing begins. The result is identical to pressing the "Clear" button before pressing the "Process Playlist" button. The idea is to reduce the clutter left behind by any previous Playlist data processing. The default setting for this new option is "off". File | Export | Stratigraphy/Aquifers, will now export for "All Units" or for a single Stratigraphy Unit/Type. The unit type column was added to the output. The editor for editing a database memo field in the Borehole Manager, like the comments in Lithology, has been more streamlined. There is now an OK and Cancel button on the bottom of the editor to either save back to the database or cancel the changes. The Save button is not shown but if the user wants to write out to a text file they can still choose Save from the menu. Bug Fixes RockWorks no longer starts in the previous project if Select Project on Startup is selected on Preferences menu. The Highest Probability solid modeling algorithm now returns the correct values instead of nulls. The Fence Location dialog now updates the map when selecting locations from an XY Pair table. The Rockplot3D Window will never be opened minimized. The RockPlot2D Export to RockPlot3D now uses the transparency options for both draped and floating diagrams. RockWorks will now allow NULL values for the "Collar Elevation". This change will allow the user to not enter a value for this field. Then when RockWorks looks to use the value for Collar Elevation, if it is NULL at that time, we would use the Elevation value in its place. This gives the user the ability to set the Collar Elevation to 0.0 if they want and for 0.0 to not behave as if the user did not enter a value. If they set one of the other tables to "measure depths from the Collar" and the Collar is NULL, that borehole would use the Elevation value in its place. The update of the field to nullable now also updates SQL Server databases. GeoTIFF Import now honors "No Data" data values, converting them to the assigned grid NULL value. This true for the default "No Data" value of -32768 and when the Geo Key Directory of GDAL_NODATA is set. P-Data | Histogram by Lithology no longer causes an Access Violation error when there is no Lithology and a Lithology Unit is chosen in the LithoTypes table under diagram options. The Peripherals / Color Legend / Title may now be edited if the Title checkbox is checked. The "Average" smoothing method for non-lithology modeling menus will no longer be switched to "Classification" after the Lithology Modeling menu has been used. The Hybrid grid modeling no longer generates an Access Violation error inadvertently introduced during the previous update. The text position for IData, IText, TData, Stratigraphy Text and Lithology Text in 2D Striplogs is now honored. Project Folder | New - Creating a project based a custom coordinate system using an EPSG code no longer adds the "+init" to the parameter string (the +init was invalid). When tilting or warping I-Data, T-Data, etc. models in conjunction with superface or subface model truncation, the program no longer produces strange gaps between the model and the truncation surface. Special thanks to Alison for taking the time to illustrate the problem within a Playlist. It shaved at least a day off the de-bugging. 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. (DO NOT uninstall first.) Note that you will not be able to use this new build of the program if your maintenance has expired before August 31, 2021. Contact RockWare Sales or visit our Customer Portal (https://www.rockware.com/customer/) if you would like to update your maintenance. Katy Duncan RockWare Inc
  3. Hello Vincent, Please send us the backup of your project database to (tech@rockware.com) - to get the backup please click under the Borehole Manager tab >File >Backup Database and save the zip file to your computer. The file should be small enough to send over. Include with your email the version of RockWorks that you currently running on your computer and the workflow you are seeing the issue with. Thanks for your time. Sincerely, Katy
  4. A new version of RockWorks2021 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, 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: An option to perform smoothing last has been added to the solid modeling. An option has been added to the Borehole Operations / T-Data / Multiple Solids program menu that determines how the program will handle duplicate points with different g-values that have been obtained within the same sampling interval. The Horizontal and Vertical Resolution settings within the Solid Declustering menu may now be specified in map units as well as percentages of the project size. Added an option to the RockPlot2D/Export to Raster dialog to specify the output width in Inches or Centimeters. The Units and DPI options were moved from the Scale Factor Page because the DPI is used by all the Raster Exports and the Units are also used by the Width by Units. An option has been added to the Peripherals to plot Pattern Legends without the pattern lines. Import ASCII XYZG to Solid (MicroModel) can now choose the Null value to initialize the solid to and choose whether to resolve the nulls to a value from their nearest neighbor. An Include Border option has been added to the Billboard for Hydro, Production and Time-based billboard graphs. The Spatial Filtering for Z, Upper Surface and Lower Surface now apply to downhole Borehole labeling for Stratigraphy, Aquifers, I-Data and T-Data. Grid Import will import ESRI ASCII Grids that have X&Y dimensions specified to reference the Lower-Left corner of the Lower-Left cell or the center of the Lower-Left cell. Improvements: The local coordinates for the cursor are now displayed within the Grid Editor. An option to use faults for the color fill and contour lines has been added for Profiles, X-Sections and Projected Sections. The code used for generating contoured sections and profiles from solid models has been modified to provide much faster performance. Changed the calculation of line thicknesses from RockPlot2D to print, raster and PDF to provide slightly thicker lines in the output. Solid model smoothing can now be performed last to allow smoothing to include previous filters. In addition, the smoothing settings are now being set correctly for both pre and post smoothing. The Multiple RockPlot2D Files to PDF program now allow users to enter a scale for output allowing for the scaled display of unequal size diagrams in a PDF. This option will leave blank space around smaller diagrams. An option has also been added to specify output width in inches. Redesigned the menus for exporting from RockPlot2D to Raster and PDF, and Multiple Rw2D to PDF. The Image width in units and pixels are now linked to make them easier to understand and a Line Width Adjustment has been added to modify the appearance of lines in the output. The ModOps | Grid | Grid Math menu now uses the term "Grid" instead of "Model". Grid and Solid Metadata is now embedded in Rw3D files and can be viewed from the Info button that's available on the item Options dialog. The ability to save embedded grids and solids with metadata has been added. Bug Fixes Menus with Linear or density unit’s drop-down lists will read and write to the ini settings file correctly. ReportWorks Printing when scaled to the output page now correctly locates Legends and Text, and scales Line Widths. The Sector Width and Sector Height within the IDW Advanced / Closest In Sector sub-menu are now interpreted properly. Previous versions would increase the selection by one level (e.g., 30 degrees would be incremented to 45 degrees). The Grid to Flow Table program now offers Ledger Output Options instead of outputting to the Utilities Data Sheet. Printing from ReportWorks to a page with different dimensions then the document now correctly scales line widths and places text accurately. When reassigning or reprojecting the project's coordinates, the Borehole Manager units are updated with the correct label (feet/meters) The help in the Lateral Geo-Steering was not showing the second time the dialog was shown. Imported Surfer Binary grids now calculate the Y Spacing correctly. Solid | Import | ASCII file - The header was not being parsed correctly. The automatic creation of Subface and Superface grid makes sure that the grid Distance Filter is turned off to avoid unexpected solid filtering caused by the grids. Exporting color legends from RockPlot3D to SketchFab Obj now honors settings for order, label interval, scientific notation, prefix and postfix labels. Opening a RockPlot3D file in a non-project folder with associated files no longer prompts the user to find the files. The program will no longer attempt to display the model if the Cancel button is clicked when viewing a declustering report for solid modeling. In the Borehole Manager, data tabs the user may define additional fields. If the additional field is a Value List, a new button allowing editing the list became visible. This button now shows list for more than just 2 Value List fields. The T-Data / Multiple Solids program will now stop processing if an error is encountered and the user selects the Cancel option. RwGrd file created through the Map | Borehole Map program shows elevations. The Z Filter and Surface Filters in the Spatial Filter are now activated for the Borehole Map function. Users can now select the Manual setting for borehole resolution in the Preferences dialog. The Borehole Survey program now sets the origin correctly. When specifying a CRS (Coordinate Reference System) using the Other option, one can specify a pre-defined system (like espg:2229) that has linear units other than international feet or meters (U.S. Surveyors foot for espg:2229). This could introduce inaccurate results for some operations. RockWorks will now warn about this. RockWorks also looks up these units from the definitions for better reporting. 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.

  6. In LogPlot7 there's an option for both the design editor and data tab to import 'old log design' files but not sure if the extension is the same as what you mention. We suggest that you try is to use the Import old log design option, and then if it doesn't work that you create a new design/data in LogPlot7 and copy and paste the data in to that. You should be able to open the LogPlot 1998 files in a text editor to transfer the data. Thanks, Katy D - RockWare Support
  7. This version has the faults turned off in the Samples project to prevent modeling complications. If you are not working in the Samples project folder this is not an important update.

  8. Hello Vincent, Both versions will be installed on the users machine side by side and they will need to connect to the network licenses for use. Then, open the projects from the Users:Documents:RockWorks17 Data folder in RockWorks20 to migrate the RockWorks project to the new version. RockWorks will create the project in a new data folder and leave the RW17 folder/project in tact for backup. Visit the RockWorks documentation page for "quick-start" documents which describe installation and licensing details: https://www.rockware.com/support/rockworks-support/rockworks-downloads/rockworks-documentation/ For more details about transitioning the license from RockWorks17 to RockWorks2020, refer to this document: https://www.rockware.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/RockWorks2020-Network-License-Transition.pdf Check out what's new in RockWorks2020: https://www.rockware.com/product_page/rockworks-new-features/?features=71
  9. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today and include the fix for Well Construction segments with a non-zero Inner Diameter. Those will now draw correctly when a non-zero Offset is specified. You can also refer to the complete LogPlot revision list: https://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/current_logplot_revisions.htm To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside LogPlot8.

  10. A new version of RockWorks2021 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, 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 grid and solid math menus now include options for computing the log base 10 and natural logarithms of the node values. This is a useful tool for identifying spatial relationships for data in which the majority of the values are much lower than the highest value. Layers in RockPlot2D window can now be locked from selecting to make it easier to edit dense diagrams. A new program called "Copy Files" has been added to the Utilities / Misc sub-menu. This program is used to copy a list of files (within the RockWorks Datasheet) to a designated folder. The intent is to provide a means to copy selected files to another folder, computer, server, or FTP site. The Grid and Solid Range Filters now allow null values to be filtered and replaced. When an error is encountered while processing a Playlist, the error message dialog now provides a new option to cancel the process rather than continuing with the Playlist processing or closing/restarting the program. The Enable and Disable buttons within the Playlist now have small black arrows along the right side of the button that will display additional options for enabling/disabling all of the options above or below the currently highlighted item within the Playlist. These new options are also available within the View option at the top of the Playlist as well as the popup menu that appears if the user right-clicks within the list. Improvements: The Multiple RockPlot2D to PDF Export options now includes Pattern Scaling options. Added a command to the Playlist to reset the project settings to their default values. Added Map Options to the RockPlot2D Shape File Import, so that Borders, Labeled Axes, etc. can be specified directly in the Shape file import. Improved the RockPlot3D export of text in Wavefront Obj files for Sketchfab. Additionally, added a text scalar option. The Geobody Filter program is now several orders of magnitude faster than the previous version. Seconds versus hours faster. "Geobodies" represent clusters of connected voxels that fall within a user-specified g-value range. A typical application involves the identification of "hydraulic communication" based on filtered hydraulic conductivity data. RockWorks will use the materials table to define drawing order for Well Construction striplogs. Bug Fixes The Polygon List / Grid program no longer offers a Point Map Overlay which could cause error messages. 2D Faults when intersected with a grid are no longer terminated by null values or the border of the grid. The processing of a Playlist is now terminated if the Cancel button has been clicked. The actual termination will not occur until after the active item is finished processing. The "active" item is defined as the item that was being processed when the Cancel button was clicked. In addition, the user will now be asked to confirm the cancellation if the Cancel button is clicked. Polygon Clipping is no longer applied to automatically generated grids for Subface and Superface Clipping surfaces since it caused Polygon Clipping to fail. Profiles that cross a fault more than once now show all fault intersections. Grid | Import | Bitmap (Raster Image) - will now honor the Input Coordinate settings and properly crop the image down to the Project Dimensions. Utilities - Statistics | Histograms, honors minimum/maximum filters for both the statistics and the histogram. The algorithm that determines if a point is inside or outside a polygon no longer sporadically and incorrectly identifies points (e.g., grid cells, solid voxels) as being inside or outside the polygon. 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 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.

  11. The depths can be set by your projected up and down dip depth numbers in the 3D fault set up dialog box. Your example above looks to be about 90' vertical scale so you are likely on the right track.
  12. Hello JuDi, The drawing order for Well Construction types is defined by the base depth in the Construction Types Table. In the case of a tie (same depth) then it will default to the order they were entered to the table. Possibly you could add a small depth increment to the 'borehole' item to get the depth just a little more than other items? In the new version of RockWorks, improvements have been made in how the Well Construction layers are drawn. In RockWorks17 I'm afraid you will need to use the >right click >move to back option as you have discovered or adjust depths slightly. For your fill plot item question you are able to double click on the Well Construction item to open the Polyfill Attributes box where there are options to check on/off the fill, border, and pattern for that item as well as a check box to make it visible or not.
  13. The Z Elevation represents the sample elevation at the corresponding X and Y location. In most projects this is depth. The program will read the indicated XYZ location coordinates and project the Down-dip/Up-dip of the fault from those points.
  14. Hi There, possibly this online help topic will help you with your datasheet set up for fault modeling: https://help.rockware.com/rockworks17/WebHelp/utilities_faults_summary.htm You can send more information about your data and workflow to our tech support email box if you want to ask specific questions about the fault modeling module.
  15. Hello Henry, I was able to reproduce the issue of transparency around vertical text not working and overlapping the frame. I found that if you make the text just slightly smaller it will fit in the box, as a temporary workaround. I will send this issue to the development team to take a look at for a fix in a future release. Thanks for your input and detailed explanation along with the screen shot. Sincerely, Katy
