  3. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: Bug Fixes Printing from RockPlot3D sometimes produced black pages. Importing a DXF file into a RockPlot3D scene with a raster image caused a "File not found" message. Importing selected patterns overwrote the entire pattern file. RockPlot3D now uses the Custom Color Table stored in the Rw3D file before looking for the Color Table name in the project database. Solid Modeling Decluster RCL options were not always being saved when output to a file or display. The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of these changes since the last update.

  4. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: Improvements Pasting items into the Pattern Editor that would be offset outside the Design Window now pushes them to the bottom. A Clear All button has been added to the Pattern Editor. If a solid model consists of only null values, an error message will now be displayed and the process will be terminated. The previous version would just hang and the user was left wondering if they should keep waiting. The Transfer functions from the Utilities datasheet (Locations and Stratigraphy), will now use their own query/data to update the Borehole Manager's data. This ensures all of the data is transferred. Bug Fixes The Line Width option in the Pattern Editor is now working. The Solid Model Reveal Animation now displays the correct inner faces. The Super and Sub Face Filters Replacement values for Solid Modeling now take precedence over the Distance Filter. The dip angle spinner button within the Solid Modeling Options | Tilting menu now ranges between -90 and +90. The previous version would only allow for values between zero and +90. The Scan of the Datasheet for dimensions will not convert the coordinates if coordinate systems are the same. (The scanner converted the coordinates to Lon/Lat and back even when the systems were the same.) The multiple point coordinate converter for the Utilities Datasheet now converts to/from Local Coordinates. Due to an oversight implementing Proj.4 conversions Local Coordinates were treated as degrees of Long/Lat. Other places coordinates were converted continue to work. Voxel Models that are hidden no longer draw during rotation. In RockPlot3D Line Widths can never be set beyond the minimum or maximum values which can cause errors. The menus for exporting vertical and horizontal charts from Rockplot2D to Google Earth are no longer disabled.

  6. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: Improvements The Pattern Designer now has margin between the left and bottom of the designer window. In the Pattern Designer the default size is now smaller for drawn dots and imported circles. Modified the way the Pattern Designer window is sized by adding a splitter bar. Bug Fixes The Lithology Multivariate Maps no longer omit the last lithology type. A routine to resegment polylines in RockPlot2D could cause an infinite loop if the line was very short. This could happen when converting to Google Earth where the output coordinates are in degrees Line widths in RockPlot2D exports are now scaled correctly. Exports from RockPlot2D that required tiling raster images was plotting the images incorrectly. Line widths in RockPlot2D items in ReportWorks diagrams were not being scaled according to the resolution. The Hydrographs run from the Borehole Manager Aquifer menu were using elevation instead of depths for the water level. The Show Label option for Color Table records in RockPlot3D weren't being saved.

Data Editor - File | Import | Excel (Multi-Sheet): "/*" characters from LP7 are translated to carriage returns Well Construction text and leader lines weren't being clipped correctly when using Custom Page length. Lithology Description comments (no base depth) weren't being plotted. The line width for vector symbols was not being adjusted for high resolution exports (PDF, Raster, etc.).

  8. LogPlot8 2019.3.28

    New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today with the following changes: Enhancements The LAS Import does a better job mapping LAS data fields and the LP data fields. LAS parameter data is imported to Edit text on a tab named after the data section. Tabs with two depths (like Lithology, with a Top and Base depth) both fields are auto mapped. Bug Fix Importing LogPlot 7 data files was only bringing in 1 line of Note Text data.

  9. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: New Features RockWorks17 now supports the import of depth registered raster logs into the Borehole Manager database. Added a program that converts a grid to a solid (Utilities/Solid/Convert/Grid To Solid). Improvements Color Legends in RockPlot3D that use a Custom Color Table will now place the labels at the boundaries if the table is continuous with no gaps. GeoProbe Imports works with OIHP data files. Improved coordinate handling when transferring location data from an .RwDat file to the borehole database. A "Show Label" field has been added to the Color Fill Table. This allows users to pick which labels to display in Color Table Legends in RockPlot3D and RockPlot2D. IHS Energy import can limit Stratigraphy Tops & Bottoms to specific source codes. When copying data to a new project, the project dimensions were not copied correctly when there were subsite values. Improved column sorting in accessory project tables. Bug Fixes The Legend options for 3D Multiple Striplogs weren't being saved. The PLSS Offset vs. quarter/quarter radio buttons on the tabsheet tabs are now both being updated. Made a fix to the Land Grid tab-delimited System Table for custom grid coordinates, it was not loading the entire the point stream. Added a fix to the database's Color Fill table, you can enable/disable all Show Label fields at once. Tabbing thru the last row will now insert an new row as the other tables do. Specifying a column for Easting or Northing columns in Utilities/Map/Grid Based Map that didn't include input units caused the program to keep asking to automatically fix input units. Failure to create a grid in Utilities/Map/Grid Based Map caused an Access Violation error. Fixed some issues displaying Color Tables and modifying label text in RockPlot3D The Recent Projects menu item could cause an Access Violation error in certain circumstances. The Size, Color and Font Name can now be modified in RockPlot3D Bitmap Text. The Declustering Resolution for models and grids can now be set larger than 100%. The RockPlot2D Color Legend using a color table was not plotting the colors or labels correctly when in descending order. In RockPlot3D View nodes can no longer be dragged out of the View set in the data tree. The Title of Views in RockPlot3D are now correctly saved after they've been edited. The transparency setting for raster images in RockPlot3D is now saved. The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of these changes since the last update. To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks17. Or visit our website and click on the RockWorks 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.

  10. From Terra Softa: Saving Files to Protected Folders Windows Defender (when turned on) will prevent you from saving files, especially image files like .wmf files. Since this is unacceptable, the following workaround is important. + Open Windows Defender if you have it running, its icon is a shield. + Click: Virus & threat protection settings (scroll down to find Controlled folder access). + Click: Manage Controlled folder access. + Click: Allow an app through Controlled folder access. + Click: Add an allowed app. This opens up a file dialog that you use to find the Igpet EXE file so you can select it for access to protected folders (e.g. Desktop, Documents). Igpet_WinYEAR.exe is what you are looking for. It should be in the directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\IgpetYEAR. + Click on the Igpet_WinYEAR.exe file and answer Yes when asked to approve. + Finally, restart your PC so the changes in Windows Defender can take effect. + Do the same with the Mixing.exe and CipwPlus.exe programs to more easily use them. Now Igpet will work quite a lot better.
  11. LogPlot8 2019.1.31

    New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website yesterday with the following changes: New Feature LogPlot8 now imports LAS version 3 files. This version will import versions 1.2 and 2 of LAS files also. Enhancement An option to Show Data Load/Import warnings has been added to the System Settings. This option applies to Excel and AGS imports as well as loading Logplot data files. It is set to true by default. Importing older pattern files now sets the imported file as the default library.

  12. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website yesterday, with the following changes: New Features I-Data and T-Data 3D striplog columns can now be set to a constant radius with varying colors. Improvements RockPlot3D now permits you to rearrange the views (so the top one is used on Open) and to delete the default view. The Utilities | Faults | Single or Multiple -> 3D Fault File programs no longer deliver a cryptic error if the user forgets to assign a name for the 3D Fault File (.rwflt). It now just reminds you to enter the file name. Importing older pattern files now sets the imported file as the default library. Bug Fixes The Azimuth and Dip settings for Tilt in the Solid Model Options can now be entered as real numbers. The 3D - Multi Striplogs are now sorted by name. The Stiff Diagram program now can save RockPlot2D files when run from RCL. If there's only 1 page then the specified filename is used otherwise the filename adds a number to the end (e.g. Stiff1.Rw2D, Stiff2.Rw2D...StiffN.Rw2D The Check Data Integrity | Check for P-Data Duplicates program now makes sure there are duplicates to remove before trying to remove them. Previously, when there were no duplicates the program was still trying to fix it, causing an unknown data type and then an out of range error. Changed some conversions constants acre feet to cubic feet, acre feet to gallons, cubic feet to acre feet, cubic km to gallons, gallons to acre feet To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks17.

  13. A user in the Czech Republic recently contacted us after installing RockWorks17 on a new computer. On startup RockWorks displayed this error message: No mapping for the Unicode character exists in the target... and the program generated a bug report: exception class : EFDException exception message : [FireDAC][Comp][Clnt]-340. Driver ID is not defined. Set TFDConnection.DriverName or add DriverID to your connection definition. As it turned out, the connection parameters were correctly defined in the project's "menus.ini" file. But the default database file path in the same section contained a strange character. His user name in Windows contained the "š" character which had somehow been incorrectly stored in the INI file, making the file path unreadable. Since his computer was correctly set up to use Czech as the system language, the fix was simply to close RockWorks, rename the \Samples\System\menus.ini file, and restart RockWorks. The settings file was rebuilt, the correct character was stored this time, and the program started successfully. Another note: RockWorks17 and LogPlot8 support Unicode. If you are using LogPlot7 (not Unicode compliant) and have problems entering/displaying certain characters. be sure you have defined your language (such as Czech or Slovenian) as the Language for Non-Unicode Programs in Windows Control Panel | Time and Language | Region and Language | Administrative Language Settings.

  14. LogPlot8 2018.12.27

    New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today with the following changes: Enhancement Added and option for Cross Plots to truncate values to the minimum and maximum values.

  15. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: Improvements Voxel Models (e.g. lithology) now use logic to decide which faces need to be drawn in RockPlot3D which improves drawing speed significantly. Removed the option to disable Double Buffering for RockPlot3D as it offered no benefits. Color Tables in a RockPlot2D and RockPlot3D Legends now display in the same order. Added an option to RockPlot3D Color Legends to reverse the order from descending to ascending. The Descending option in RockPlot2D Color Legends now also reverses the order for color tables. Bug Fixes The Stratigraphy Section and Profile programs no longer use the modeling clipping polygon. The Solid to Zone program was ignoring the input and output column settings. The RockPlot 2D Map conversion was initializing the converter with the output value so no conversion was being done. The processing of the points is also faster, as it processes more points at a time. Fixed an obscure problem with color legends in RockPlot3D: if the legend used a Min-Mid-Max color scheme in a manner that resulted in an odd number of intervals, the labels would plot in the wrong position To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks17.

  16. Error: "RockPack III has expired"

    Recently another user found that he also had to INSTALL the program by right-clicking on the RockPack installer file and selecting Run As Administrator, even though he was an admin on his computer. So here is a summary of the steps to take to install and launch RockPack III under Windows 10: Download the installation ZIP file from the RockWare website (RockPack's page, Free Trial tab). Save the installation ZIP file to your computer. When the download is complete, extract the "rkpk" folder and "notes" document from the ZIP file. Locate the installer in the "rkpk" folder, it is named "setup.exe" Right-click on the installer file and choose Run As Administrator. Click Yes if Windows asks you to confirm you want to run the installer. Install using the defaults. When the installation is complete, right-click on the RockPack III program icon and choose Run As Administrator. Click Yes again if Windows again requires confirmation. If you see the "Registration" window, enter: Name: Type in your name. Company: Type in your company name. Serial Number: If you purchased a license copy/paste in the RockWare-supplied Serial Number. If you wish to use RockPack in demo mode, leave this field blank. Click OK.
  17. Where to Download Keyword and Pattern Files

    Hi Bryce, OK the LogPlot7-generation files are posted now to the same LogPlot Data page (scroll down to the bottom of the page). Thanks Molly RockWare Inc
  18. Where to Download Keyword and Pattern Files

    Hi Bryce, Thanks for your posting and sorry for the delay in replying. We just posted a zip file with USCS keyword ("USCS_soils.lpkey") and pattern ("USCS_soils.RwPat") libraries to our website, on the Support | LogPlot | Downloads | Data page. Also included in the ZIP file are a sample PDF file showing the terms, patterns, and colors, and the LogPlot8 data and design files we used to generate that preview. Use the Download button on that page to save a ZIP file to your computer. Once saved there, extract the keyword and pattern files to your C:\ProgramData\RockWare\LogPlot8 folder. Use the Options | System Files window in the LogPlot8 program to browse for these files to be used as the default libraries. Or use the Append tool (Keyword editor) or Import Selected Patterns tool (Pattern editor) to combine the USCS files to your existing libraries. If you want to, you can extract the remaining files to Documents\LogPlot8 Data\Samples or to another folder of your choice. We will be posting additional libraries on that same Data Downloads page shortly, but we wanted to get this reply posted asap. Let us know if you have any questions. Molly RockWare Inc

  23. Invalid file name -%s

    Hi Paola, Thanks for your question. I just tested this in RockWorks17, and my striplog exported to DXF with no problems. So... 1. did you enter a name for the DXF file to be created in the DXF Export window? 2. What version of RockWorks are you using? You are welcome to save your striplog diagram in RockPlot2D and email that ".Rw2D" file to "support at rockware.com" and we can test the export with that file. Since this problem appears to be data-specific, please direct continued discussions about this issue via email to the support email address. . Thanks Molly Mayfield
  24. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: Improvements + The bulk import for LAS files into the Borehole Manager will now handle LAS version 3.0 files. The bulk import will now allow a filter for depths, NULL conversions and decimation of data. + LAS files (Version 3.0) can be imported into the Utilities datasheet. The options have been expanded to allow NULL conversions and decimation of data. These two improvements will only import Log/Curve data. Other sections allowed in the LAS version 3.0 specification are ignored for these imports. They can be imported via the single file import in the Borehole Manager. + Stratigraphy legends now use the background color for the pattern when "Background Colors" are turned off, so that they match unfilled section panels. + RockPlot2D is now using GDI+ for displaying transparent images and images with a transparent color. + Added an option to the Vertical Panels to Color Model and Vertical Panels to X/Y/Z/Color to sample by distance instead of pixels. + Improved the drawing quality and speed of raster images in 2D Strip Logs. These changes can be seen anywhere that 2D Strip Logs are plotted (e.g. Cross Sections, Profiles, Stratigraphy Picker, etc.). Bug Fixes + Fixed an issue when running RCL files that displaying 2D graphics caused an Invalid Pointer error. + Fixed a problem in which the Borehole Manager Check Data Integrity menu option would display an OS Function error if the error list output to HTML was too big to be displayed in the RockWorks browser component. + The path for the Constraining Surface was being removed if the grid file was in a different folder than the project. + Fixed an Access Violation in the Projected Section EZ contouring (Striplog menu).

  25. A customer recently emailed us saying that his IT group was getting their SQL Server set up and figuring out his access to the server through the firewall. He inquired: Can you tell me if RockWorks users need full admin rights on the computer it is installed on or just power user / Win10 equivalent? Here is our short answer: No, users do not need Admin rights to run the RockWorks17 program. Long answer: While Admin rights are not necessary to run the program, RockWorks - when connecting to a SQL Server - does require the ability to Create, Read, Update, and Delete records in the SQL server database. This level of permission is established through permissions on the SQL Server side, not in RockWorks. Note that if you don't have permission to create new fields in the database, which is higher than the "CRUD" permissions above, that is generally ok except when we update the data dictionaries. This could cause problems when you install an update for RockWorks. But there is a work-around for this - you can activate a setting in the database connection window in RockWorks17 for the SQL Server to "Generate a SQL Script File without executing it" for these cases. Then just give the script file to the network Admin to run, and it then the necessary fields will be added to the SQL Server database. Molly Mayfield RockWare Support
