  1. 2D Striplog Questions

    I need to make several 2D striplogs in Rockworks15. At the top of each striplog, I want to show the date of the boring and the total depth. In the Borehole Manager, I added the Date field. How can I automatically display the Date and Total Depth for each borehole at the top of each striplog? Can it be done using the 2D Striplog Designer or in a ReportWorks template? Mark
  2. background color transparency

    Hi Tom, Thanks for your help using the Pattern Table. I like keeping this separate from the stratigraphy. Is there a way to make the pattern background color transparent? I can't make the background the same color as a stratigraphic layer because in some borings the pattern must straddle two layers. I did find that once the striplog is saved as a .rk6 file the Polyfill Attributes give me the option to make the background transparent. Just wondering if this could be done upfront for all striplogs in a profile or cross-section.
  3. I'm trying to import Pattern data from an Excel spreadsheet. First attempt included Bore, Depth1, Depth2, Caption fields. All but captions loaded successfully. Second attempt included Bore, Depth1, Depth2, Pattern (no data), and Caption fields. This produced error message. Import settings were Update Existing Record and only Patterns spreadsheet was being imported. bugreport.txt
  4. Rather than having Interval Text in a separate column to one side of a striplog, can it be overlapped on the stratigraphy? The stratigraphy is sand fill overlying till. However, there are thinner intervals that need to be qualified as 'Oil Contaminated Soil' or 'Oil Saturated Soil.' I can enter these intervals in my stratigraphy tab. Is there a way to represent the interval with a foreground pattern and a transparent background color so that the stratigraphy color is visible?
  5. exporting rk6 to graphic

    Hello, I've created aquifer profiles and sections. I want to import them into ArcMap at the same horizontal scale as the data frame of 1 inch = 30 feet. I have tried exporting the rk6 file to a BMP and PNG with the X and Y scales set to 30 and 15 and Keep Same Proportions unchecked. But, once I import it into the ArcMap layout view the scale settings are lost. In addition, even though I set the pixels/inch to 300 and color to 24 the resolution isn't good quality. I also tried exporting the rk6 file to an EMF. The resolution is excellent, but there is no way to set the scale. How can I maintain the same scale for the cross-section as the ArcMap plan view? Thanks. Mark
  6. multi-log cross section

    Thanks for your help. I found a simple solution. I created the surface grid with all boreholes including surface elevation points turned on. I turned off the surface points and created the multilog cross section.
  7. multi-log cross section

    I tried a 0 elevation for the surface points, but got this message. The Total Depth (0.00) for this borehole is invalid. Run Project/Check Data Integrity or edit the TD in the Location tab. After I ran the Check Data Integrity, Rockwork changed all the Total Depths to 100.0. I think this is because the depth to base of my lowest lithology layer is 100.0. Ran the multi-log section without the lithology and still got the same error.
  8. multi-log cross section

    I want to create a multilog section that extends beyond the section I selected in order to show some important surface features and the elevation changes. Two retaining walls, one of which drops to a river, cause the change in elevation. At first, I created surface points as boreholes with coordinates, elevation, and a zero value for total depth. I realized this wouldn't work because the surface points need to be reflected in the surface profile line not as boreholes. Any suggestions?
  9. My lithology or stratigraphy depths are measured at the time of the direct-push boring as so many feet below ground surface. How can the added Ground Elevation field be selected as the reference for these depths?
  10. When Rockworks processes its various models where depths are used, I presume it's subtracting the depth from the Elevation field on the Location table. That's supposed to be a ground surface elevation. My depths for well construction or the water table are referenced to the top of casing elevation. Ground surface elevations are needed to create a topographic map. How can I modify Rockworks and the Excel table used for importing data to include both elevation points and then be able to use them where needed?
  11. top of casing depth

    I initially thought it would have to be a negative value, but I was thrown off by Rockworks Help. Well Construction Data Fields Depth to Top: Enter the measured depth to the top of the interval to be filled with the pattern block. ! The depth values must be positive.
  12. top of casing depth

    If the top of casing is 3' above ground surface, how is this entered into the DEPTH1 field for well construction?
  13. Stratigraphy (interpolated surface model)

    Molly, thanks for taking the time to outline these steps. They worked. When I'm editing the grid models I used the Show Points tool. Is there a way to show the borehole names?
  14. I've used Stratigraphy>Section>Model(interpolated surface model) to create the attached cross-section. Layers 2 and 3 are only found in the 2 boreholes at the D' end of the section. Although I've entered a 0 thickness for the layers in the 6 other boreholes, a lens of each is generated between the boreholes. How can the lenses be eliminated?
  15. RockPlot 3d does not open

    Mitch, It turns out I was impatient. RockPlot3d took about 30 seconds to open. There's was no error message. Now that I have let it take its time, it starts-up in a couple of seconds either from the Rockworks task bar or the .exe file. Sorry to have bothered you with this.
