  1. Hi Vincent, You might also refer to the help topic that discusses opening RockWorks17 projects into RW20xx: https://help.rockware.com/rockworks/WebHelp/project_open_rw17.htm
  2. On some systems, it may be necessary to run the Command Prompt "as administrator". In the video, instead of just clicking on the Command Prompt app to launch it, you would right-click on the app and select Run As Administrator from the pop-up menu. This gives the app higher permissions to register the DLL.
  3. Here is a quick video which illustrates the MIDAS.DLL registration process: register_midasdll.mp4
  4. Hi Allison, Please shoot us an email (support at rockware.com) regarding this, and we will send you a link where you can upload a backup of your borehole project (File | Backup Project). That'll be better than posting your data on a public forum. Thanks Molly Mayfield RockWare Support
  5. A new version of RockWorks2021 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with many new features, improvements, and bug fixes. No rest for the programmers! The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features: The ModOps | Volume | Ore Grid program now includes options for specifying the classification terminology that is used within the Geologic Resource and Economic Reserves reports (e.g. Measured vs. Proven, Probable vs. Indicated). Eleven new symbols have been added to the raster symbol library. The names of the grid files used to generate a RockPlot3D surface are now shown within the data "tree" along the left side of the RockPlot3D dialog. Users can now copy a data object in the RockPlot3D scene and paste it into scene as a duplicate object. A new option titled "Manual Labeling" has been added to the Peripherals | Color Legend sub-menu The ModOps | Solid menu contains a new program titled “Paper Solid”, used to create images that can be cut, folded, and glued to create three-dimensional paper models. Added the option to filter/select boreholes by Well Construction. This could be useful when selecting wells that have Screened intervals, or Monitoring wells. The Add Points option that was available within RockWorks17 has been reinstated to the Solid Model Special Options menu. A number of new infrastructure objects/parameters have been implemented: Pit, Depth, Height Multiplier, Opacity. You can now sort by date within the datasheet. Data in the column that cannot be converted to a date will cause that row to be sorted to the bottom. Improvements: Gridding Options: You can now specify the replacement value for nodes that are clipped via the Polygon option. Borehole Manager | File | Export | P/T/I-data | All Tracks: Now have Spatial filter (and Time). The Setup | Preferences | Warnings menu offers disabling of Web Browser error messages. The color scheme menu that is used for plotting 2D grid contours, 3D grid surfaces, and 3D block models now has options for using the existing lithology and stratigraphy types tables The Solid Layer -> Grid program now includes options that define the direction of the vertical slices (e.g. west to east versus east to west). Legends are now included with the Wavefront Obj (Sketchfab) export in RockPlot3D. Non-applicable options are no longer displayed within the Solid Model Special Options menu based on the currently selected algorithm. Options have been added for saving and retrieving the configuration of the Multi-Range Color Table Maker, making it easier to share with other projects. Setup - Preferences | User Interface: User may turn off Show Hints separately from the Abstracts. An option to reuse an existing RockPlot3D window has been added to the Save tab of the Output 3D form. RockPlot3D now stores and uses relative file paths for images, making it easier to transfer projects. Bug Fixes Borehole Manager | File | Import | Kansas Geological Survey - Fixed an error importing TD. Custom Colors are remembered more readily between different color drop-downs on the same page and from session to session. The Interpolate Outliers option for Lithology Models now is applied. Spurious 2D contours are no longer drawn within flat regions. Importing Shape files that have polylines with multiple parts into the RockWorks Datasheet now retrieves the correct record for each point. When installing a new build of RockWorks the settings for Coordinates | Decimals were being saved from the defaults for the screen controls before they were read from the ini file. The early saving has been circumvented, the screen control's defaults changed. The Inverse-Distance-Weighting Isotropic algorithm can now model negative values. Numerous fixes to the Delete key handling. If a person was set to use local help and they downloaded the latest version of RockWorks, it will now unpack correctly. Borehole Manager - File | Backup Database: if Quickmap is active then an Access Violation error is no longer raised. 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. Or visit our website and click on the RockWorks Free Trial tab: https://www.rockware.com/product/rockworks/#tab-product_inquire_form_1494_tab 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 March 31, 2021. Contact RockWare Sales or visit our Customer Portal (https://www.rockware.com/customer/) if you would like to update your maintenance. Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc
  6. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today with the following changes: Improvements Batch Files now store 9 Significant Digits for scale. You can enter a non-breaking space in the datasheet editor by typing either Alt+0160 or Alt+255. This depends on the setup of your computer and keyboard. Bug Fixes Point Data (curves, text, etc.) with duplicate depths did not sort correctly. Now the data is tested for duplicate depths and if found the point data is not sorted. The background value grid for non one based logarithmic scales (eg. 0.2 to 2000) is now plotted correctly. Compiling selected RockWorks borehole records functions properly. Strange issues posting edited text back to the datasheet have been fixed. If a formatted description (e.g. Lithology description, Edit Notes) ended with some formatting like bold or a different color, once you left the editor the entire description would be assigned that formatting. Fixed so that the Font is now reset between the calls. Improved the RTF to HTML conversion in the data editor when editing text with formatting. Vertical Text with left or right justification and no margin no longer overplots the interval line. 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.

  7. Hi Ian, Because this has become data-specific, let's move this from the general forum to a tech support issue. Please select the Borehole Manager's File | Backup Project menu option and send the zip file by email to support at rockware.com. We can take a look at the specific settings in the project to determine the problem. If the file is too large to email, send support an email requesting a link where you can upload it to our guest ftp site. In the email please also specify the specific revision of the software (such as 2021.2.9) as displayed in the upper left corner of the main program window. Thanks! Molly RockWare Support
  8. Yes. You can change the units you want for future model/diagram output by following the steps below. Note that this will not affect any existing maps, models, diagrams, 3D scenes, etc. You will need to regenerate those using the new output units if you want to append them to new diagrams. Click on the Coordinates tab at the top of the program window. Click the Reassign button. Find the Output setting at the bottom of the window. Choose one of the two options (all feet or all meters). Click Finish. Confirm when prompted. RockWorks will then set the output X, Y, Z units to feet or to meters, as you selected. It will not change any of your data, it will change only the units to be used for your output. It will prompt you whether you want to re-scan the data for your new project dimensions at this time. You can choose Yes or No here. But BE SURE to rescan your project dimensions at some point, prior to model/diagram generation, for the new units. If you don't do this, RockWorks will output in the new units but using the wrong coordinate numbers. (As it scans your database it will convert the necessary values to comply with the desired output units.) Molly RockWare Support
  9. Hi Ian, Bear in mind that while you can enter your data with mixed units (e.g. meters X and Y, feet elevations and depths), RockWorks does require that you pick one unit for your output models and diagrams. This assures your volumes make sense, such as cubic meters versus cubic-feet-meters. And so that the diagrams and models scale nicely. The input units will be displayed in the Borehole Manager's Location tab. The output units will be displayed in the Dimensions tab at the top of the program window. In the Stratigraphy and Lithology picker programs, RockWorks will be using your output units for diagram generation. But I think you will find that, even if it is posting meters as you pick the contacts, when you close the picker and it posts the data back to the database, it will convert it back to your entered units (feet). Be sure to make a backup of your database before running the Strat Picker, just in case. The program offers this automatically. (I am working with RockWorks 2021.2.9.) Molly RockWare Support
  10. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today with the following changes: New Feature A new "Copy" button has been added to the Keyword Editor. This permits you to make a copy of the currently-selected keyword for quick addition of a similar rock/soil type. You will be prompted to type in a new name for the new keyword, then you can adjust the pattern/colors as desired. Improvements Header Pattern Legends now have the option to use the pattern width assigned to the keyword. LogPlot 8 installers now include the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio. Bug Fixes In the data grid, Edit/Undo, Control Z are now working. The new labels for the output Log View tabs now correctly reflect the name of the data file from which they were generated. The batch command line for saving PDF output no longer generates an error. 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 February 28, 2021.

  11. A new version of RockWorks2021 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with many new features, improvements, and bug fixes. We've been busy! The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features Point symbol maps, borehole location maps, stereonet maps now offer raster symbols in addition to the standard RockWorks vector symbols. They can be uniform, column-based, or table-based. Raster symbol capabilities have been added to many other programs as well: 3-D | SpherePlot | 2D Spherical – Point 3-D | SpherePlot | 2D Cylindrical – Points Planes | Stereonet Stats | Scattergram Stats | Ternary Raster symbols are a new graphic type in RockPlot3D Added new table type "Raster Symbol Range" to Map/Models Tables. Data Dictionary version increased to 37. A new menu option titled "Traverse Defined By ..." has been added to all of the programs that create sections. If the "Interactive Map" setting is selected, these programs behave just like the used to, meaning that the section location is selected via the Section Location tab at the top of the menu. The new "List ..." options provide a way to define the sections based on ASCII text files that contain either a list of Borehole IDs or XY coordinates. Users can now generate vertical scales for profiles and sections using depth below a Datum. Vertical axis annotations for sections and profiles permit different left and right axis settings. For example, one axis might display elevation and the other depth from a datum. You can block copy the settings from one axis to the other Vertical axis annotations for sections and profiles include a new Vertical Offset setting which allows for "fine-tuning" the endpoint label positions. The Lithology | Solid Model | 3D Solid Diagram | Block Diagram | Filter now includes an option to select a given lithology (based on the Lithology Table) and use its G-Value to set the Minimum and Maximum Visible G-Value settings. This eliminates the hassle of switching back to the Lithology Table to look up the G-Value for a unit of interest. A new program titled "Drape Grid" has been added to the ModOps | Grid menu. This program will create a 3D color contour map in which the elevations are based on an “elevation grid” while the colors are based on a different grid (e.g., geochemistry). A new program titled "Multivariate Grid Map" has been added to the ModOps | Grid menu. This program will use two to five grid models to create multivariate pie chart or star burst maps in which the size of an individual slice or petal represents the average cell value from the associated grid within the vicinity of the diagram A new program titled "Grid Math" has been added to the ModOps | Grid | Math sub-menu. It consolidates the previous Grid & Constant, Grid & Grid, Add Multiple Grids, Multiply Multiple Grids, Absolute Grid, and Grid Sieve programs (which have been moved to the Utilities | Misc. | Obsolete menu to provide backward-compatibility with older versions of RockWorks Playlists.) A new program titled "Solid Math" has been added to the ModOps | Solid | Math sub-menu. It consolidates the previous Solid & Constant and Solid & Solid programs (which have been moved to the new Utilities | Misc. | Obsolete menu to provide backward-compatibility with older versions of RockWorks Playlists.)A new program titled "Solid & Grid" has been added to the ModOps | Solid | Math sub-menu. This program is used to perform mathematical operations on a solid model based on corresponding grid values. A new “Coal” tutorial case study project folder has been added to the RockWorks Data folder. This project folder includes a PDF (Coal Evaluation Case Study Using the RockWorks Playlist) that describes the example Playlist which processes a RockWorks datasheet with 583 boreholes in order to identify the areas in which three coal seams meet a variety of criteria including overburden thickness, interburden thickness, BTU, sulfur, and ash. A new program titled “HTML Builder” has been added to the Misc pulldown menu. This program creates an HTML file based on a list of images and image captions. The intended purpose of this program is to provide a means for organizing and concatenating all of the images that are generated by a RockWorks Playlist into a file that can be displayed within a web browser or edited within Microsoft Word to produce a final report. The RW17 Fault Contours to Fault Surface program has been added to RW20 and modified to Import the fault contours to a 3D fault in the Fault table. Added Project_Cmd to be able to set the project in the Playlist or a command script. Improvements The Playlist shows which step is being processed. The RockWorks20 installer includes the Microsoft Visual C++ The "Loading" menu that appears when an application menu is being loaded now displays a gauge that shows the loading process. A similar gauge is also displayed within the Playlist when an item is being saved. The Geobody program includes options for specifying cutoff volumes in terms of project units (e.g. cubic meters) and displaying a message if none of the geobodies exceeds the threshold. The Borehole Manager | Edit | Adjust Elevations From Grid program provides options for setting the collar elevation to the new ground surface elevation, for offsetting the existing collar elevations based on the ground elevation changes, and for not adjusting the Collar elevations at all. The maximum Vertical Exaggeration within the 3D diagram Export menu has been changed from 10 to 9999. Items in RockPlot3D can now be offset in the X and Y directions as well as Z. It is now possible to specify directions between -360 and +360 degrees when specifying the offset direction for parallel profiles. The Utilities | Maps | Lineations/Arrows program now includes color options for the endpoint labels. The Datasheet | Filter | Remove Disabled program is now orders of magnitude faster and the screen doesn't incessantly flicker during the process. Imports into the Datasheet automatically assigns the input filename as the Datasheet filename (with .rwDat extension). If this filename already exists in the folder the user will be prompted for a new name. Text, CSV and Excel Datasheet imports allow the setting of datasheet column types and units. These new settings are stored in the ini file and can be set/edited in a Playlist Since the improvement in the Datasheet import of CSV files allowed multiple lines and quotation marks in a field, The Save and Open a datasheet will now also allow these improvements. A number of changes have been made to the ModOps | Grid | Import | Bitmap program, including importing large GeoTIFF images, crop the data to the project dimensions, rescale the image pixels to the project dimensions cell size, accommodate image dimensions in a corresponding World file that are expressed in a different coordinate system. ModOps - Solid | Filters | Tunnel Clipping and Borehole Clipping now accept (and default to) the RockWorks null value. The ModOps | Solid | Edit - As Block Model program is no longer limited to 100 points when defining the vertices of a replacement polyhedron. Bug Fixes When selecting a profile or section points the user can have an image as a background to assist in selecting the points. (File | Options | Project Image Options) Draped images in RockPlot3D now clip the image when the image location is larger than the grid it's draped on. The Graphics | 2D Tools | Export | PDF | Single/Multiple program can add to Playlist with the Add to Playlist button. The ModOps | Solid | Extract Grids | Solid -> Total Ore Grid now accommodates solids that have null values. The Delete key now works on blocks of cells in the RockWorks Datasheet. ModOps | Grid | Drape grid, works with Custom Color Tables, honors assigned table name. Borehole Operations | Lithology | Multi-variate Map will now honor the Use Existing Model Option. Datasheet | File | Import | Excel, CSV and Text was freezing or reported a pointer error when defining column types and units. Importing into the datasheet from a text file with no header, no longer takes the first row as a title. The first row will appear as the first row in the Datasheet. Running a command script (RwCmd) from the command line or Windows File Explorer no longer causes RockWorks to load without any docked forms. In addition the command script will now be processed automatically. ModOps | Solid | Logic | Mass Calc: Missing parameter for density conversion has been added. ModOps | Solid | Extract Grids | Solid Layer -> Grid now uses the correct orietation. The color fill contours in Cross Sections and Profiles now honor the faults that are enabled in the Fault table. RockPlot2D no longer exports layers that are inactive to RockPlot3D. We recommend that Network license users install the RockWare Network License Administrator v. 1.15.

  13. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today with the following changes: Improvements LogView tabs are labeled with the name of the data file being compiled, plus incremental numbers, rather than all tabs being labeled "Untitled". Bug Fixes Undo (Ctrl+Z) works in the datasheet editor when cell contents have been deleted. Changes made in the LogView Options pane (scale, pagination, etc.) are now saved on close. The Lithology Pattern column now honors the Percent Width setting from the Keyword file.

  14. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today with the following changes: Improvements Logplot8 can now import Logplot7 files containing Unicode characters. The number of decimals for all of the values on the BH Info page have been increased to 9 with trailing zeros removed. A macro for Collar Elevation, #c, was added to the static text element. Bug Fixes The PCloud Connect import now connects to the PCloud module if available. The Histogram (Bar Graph) display now truncates values less than the user specified minimum. When editing a cell on one of the datasheets, the Modified flag is now being set for all the editors being used to edit the cells (e.g. Dates, symbols, etc.). Lithology Description lines are now correctly cutoff at the header on the last page.

  15. A new version of RockWorks2020 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with many 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 new ModOps | Volume | Time-Based Mass creates a report that lists the change in mass of a contaminant over time, based on a list of solids that represent geochemical models for discrete time intervals. A new option titled "Polygon" has been added to the gridding options menus. This new tool can be used to crop grid models using a polygon based on: the control point extents (i.e. a convex hull), a polygon table, a polygon defined within an RwDat file, or a polygon defined within a RockPlot2D file. A new option titled "Launch Program" has been added to the Playlist | Add pull-down menu. The Borehole Operations | Maps | Borehole Map menu now includes an option for using the borehole symbols that are unique to each borehole (as defined within the Borehole Location tab for each borehole) or specifying a uniform symbol for all boreholes. The new ModOps | Grid | Math | Grid Intersections program determines the locations where two grids intersect, such as where a water table intersects the surface topography. The Layout menu offers more automatic stretch, cascade, tile, and horizontal or vertical stack of open documents and windows. The new program titled ModOps | Grid | 3 Grids -> Solid program will create a block model in which the voxel values between two surface model grids are defined by another grid (e.g. a grid representing ore grades). The faults are now included in the Multi-Table import/export (hence in the Archive also), and faults can now be transferred when creating a new project. The new Double Gridding option in the gridding Options | Faulted menu will create more accurate interpolations adjacent to 3D faults. The new Perpendicular Model option in the 3D Log Designer | Fractures menu and Fractures | Solid Model program offers easier display of downhole seismic and radar surveys in which the fracture radius represents the distance to an object (e.g. pilings) and the aperture represents the height of the object. Improvements Many Fault improvements, including 2D and 3D faults can be created from RockPlot2D from a line or polyline, you can now convert a 2D fault to a 3D fault, you can import RockWorks17 2D faults into the new RockWorks2020 fault tab. The 2D Fault Map title font size, title spacing, symbol size, and symbol spacing are now specified as a percentage of the Project Size. The grid smoothing and plotting of 3D fault intercepts within 2D maps has been improved. The Playlist drag/drop, delete, paste, and edit options have all been improved. The Filter/Select boreholes, plot of boreholes now shows the entire space based on all the boreholes. The Borehole Manager | Edit | Enable from List allows the user to enable a group of boreholes and then optionally assign a specific symbol to those boreholes. The Borehole Mananger's Edit | Save Enabled List now automatically selects "Format for Import into Other Products" so that the Enable from List program doesn't get confused by fancy formatting. The import is now more forgiving if the wrong option is selected and reports the number of updated boreholes. You can backup all the files in the project folder to a compressed file located outside the current project folder. The Flow Parameters sub-menu that is used by the Grid -> Flow Path Map, 3D Flow Diagram, and Flow Table programs has been re-designed. The 2D Log Designer Depth Bar Tick Mark Width maximum has been increased from 1.0 to 100.0. The ModOps | Volume | Thickness -> GT Grid and Elevations -> GT Grid programs have been significantly re-designed The ModOps | Solid | Filter | Replacement Table program now includes an option for setting the unfiltered nodes to the universal null value (-1.0e27). Five new symbols have been added to the Raster Symbol Library. Bug Fixes Transfer boreholes from the datasheet to the Borehole Manager database no longer raises an exception. Contouring grids no longer changes the output values in Cell Maps. Striplog Cross Sections now export without error to Google Earth. Sections and Profiles without annotation now export correctly to Google Earth. Exporting DXF files with patterns from RockPlot2D sometimes caused the program to hang. Filling a list of P-Data, I-Data, T-Data, P-Text & I-Text types sorts on the "SortOrder" field. Previously it tried to sort on a non-existent field which raised an exception on SQL Server but not on SQLite. Fault exports will include only enabled faults. Faults are now properly plotted when their intercepts with grid models are projected onto 2D maps (Figure 1). In addition, portions of “blind” faults that lie below a grid surface are now omitted from 2D maps. The ModOps | Grid | Filters | Smooth program no longer attempts to smooth across 3D faults if the "Use Enabled Faults" option is checked. The Minimum and Maximum color designations used for continuously variable circle colors now works correctly. Stratigraphic thickness report was getting lost in an infinite loop if a stratigraphic unit was set to not display in legend. Using the keyboard shortcuts for Cut, Copy, Paste and Delete in a dialog no longer cause an Access Violation error. In linearly-correlated stratigraphy sections, if Stratigraphy was referenced to Collar Elevation, Boreholes were drawn correctly referenced to Collar, but Linear Correlations were referenced to Z Elevation, creating an offset. All Sections, Profiles and Projected Sections now plot underlaid 2D files. 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 RockWorks2020.

  16. Hi Vincent, Thank you for your inquiry. The key here is what data can be updated if the borehole already exists. From the help: ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Important notes about the Borehole Manager | File | Import | XLS | Multiple Tables importer: The Excel import tool can append to existing borehole records IF you are importing (a) new tables, (b) new tracks of multi-track tables (e.g. I-Data or T-Data), or (c) new dates for time-specific multi-track tables (e.g. T-Data). This means that data being imported that references existing borehole names can be written to the existing record's fields. Example: If your existing database contains Location and I-Data records for DH1 and DH2, you can append Lithology data for those same boreholes. Example: If your existing database contains T-Data for one sampling event, and you'd like to add it for a second sampling event, then you can simply import the T-Data into the database without referencing a Locations worksheet. WARNING: The program does not check for duplicates during the import process. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ The multi-track tables in the RockWorks database are I-Data, I-Text, T-Data, P-Data, and P-Text. If you need to add new data to an existing I-Text track for existing boreholes, it is generally advisable to export the existing data for that track to Excel, add the new data you wish to import, then re-import all of the values. Please see "scenario 4" in this topic, which might also be of help: https://help.rockware.com/rockworks/WebHelp/xls_to_bh_goals.htm The Check Data Integrity program in RockWorks can give you a report of duplicates in the data tables, among other things. Be warned that if you let RockWorks "fix" duplicates, it will just keep the first one and delete the rest. (I'll get that warning added to the help!) Let us know if you have additional questions. Molly M RockWare Inc
  17. Did you know that you can use optional fields in the RockWorks Borehole Manager Database, along with SQL statements, to easily enable groups of boreholes within a project? Check our RockWare's latest blog post - Using Optional Fields and Playlists to Enabled Borehole Groups in RockWorks 2020. Molly RockWare Inc.
  18. The Midas.dll error can occur when RockWorks20xx is launched. It is caused by the midas.dll file not being properly registered. To correct that follow the steps below. Close RockWorks. Open up a command prompt by selecting the windows button + R at the same time. Type cmd into the Run window like the screenshot below which will bring up the command prompt window. On the first line after C:\Users\Username type (or copy and paste) in: cd "c:\program files\rockware\rockworks20\" and hit Enter. That should bring up a second command line starting with c:\Program Files\Rockware\Rockworks20\ and after that type (or copy and paste) in: regsvr32 midas.dll and hit Enter. A window should then pop up saying: DllRegisterServer in midas.dll succeeded. Below is a screenshot of what this should roughly look like. If the error persists, users have found that running a registry cleaner solves the problem, presumably by removing conflicting references to the DLL. Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc

    Hi Allison, Thanks for your posting.A few questions: Can you specify the revision of RockWorks you are using (e.g. 2020.9.3)? I'm having difficulty recreating this issue in both RockWorks17 (the last posted 2020.5.6) and RockWorks2020 (the current 2020.5.3 build). Does the output file look different if you open it into a different program? Metafiles are tricky because they can look very different when opened into Paint, for example, versus Word or Illustrator or PaintShop or... Do you need to use the EMF/WMF for your desired output? High-res raster output is more predictable. You are welcome to email your RockPlot2D file (.Rw2D) to support at rockware.com and, with the information from above, we can try to recreate the issue. Thanks Molly Mayfield RockWare Support
  20. A new version of RockWorks2020 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with many new features, improvements, and bug fixes. And a new video! The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program. Video A new button titled "2D & 3D Embellishments" has been added to the "What's New in RockWorks 2020" index. Clicking on this button will display a new video that describes some additional new features within RockWorks 2020.(https://www.screencast.com/t/16pyJx9BJp). New Features A new tab option titled "Lith/Strat Filter" has been added to the following menus: I-Data | Histogram I-Data | Statistics P-Data | Histogram P-Data | Statistics T-Data | Histogram T-Data | Statistics Reports generated by programs that use the new Lith/Strat Filter option now include summaries of the Lith/Strat Filter settings. Users can now specify the number of sides in RockPlot cylindrical entities (cylinder, cones, disk, etc.) in the Preferences dialog on the RockPlot tab. Fewer sides will make drawing faster and exports smaller. The default setting is 12 with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 24. Changes to this value will affect already created diagrams. The Surface Profile options for sections and profiles now provides for two surfaces (e.g. ground surface and water table). The vertical title position for section and profile annotation can now be manually specified. This is useful when creating multiple sections and profiles in which the title position must be consistent. An option for smoothing the grids has been added to the T-Data | Multiple Solids (TimeMachine) program menu. Added an ability to list the files/entries in the Project Manager. The report labeling options within the Borehole Operations | I-Data | Volumetrics (IDataVolume) and Borehole Operations | T-Data | Volumetrics (TDataVolume) programs now include options for independently specifying the decimals places for the area, g-value, length, mass, and volume results. A new option titled “Format for Readability” has been added to the TXT and RFT sub-menus for programs that create reports. If selected, the output is configured for optimal display using a fixed-width font. The Grid Polygon Clipping program now will take multiple polygons from a RockPlot2D file and apply them to the output grid. The Utilities | 3-D | Perimeter/Wall program (Perimeter3D) now includes an option for plotting a "Cage" around the diagram. Lots of changes to the Histogram programs. "Reset Menu Setting to Defaults" was added to the Settings menu in most program windows. This is similar to the Reset in the main Setup menu except that it applies only to the menu that is open. It opens the project default ini file and updates the menu setting to those values. Improvements The "Show Instructions" checkbox that formerly appeared within the sub-menus listed below has been replaced by a small "Show/Hide" +/- button located near the upper-right corner of the sub-dialog. The status of the small +/- buttons (display/show help embedded messages) at the right edge of the following sub-menus is now shared with all other programs: Time Filter , Strat Rules, 2D Log Design, 3D Log Design, Fence Location, Section Location, Profile Location, ProSect Location, and Location Map. In the Playlist you can multi-select items then Cut, Copy, Paste and Delete multiple items at a time. The popup menu that appears when the user right-clicks on the Playlist now includes the Enable All and Disable All options. The number of Playlist items is now shown within the Playlist title. Vertical and diagonal striplog titles within sections and profiles now properly offset the main title. The Solid Voxel Reveal program has been renamed to Solid Reveal and now works with both Isosurfaces and Voxel models. The stand alone Voxel Reveal program now allows users to set the view direction, zoom, vertical exaggeration, background color and other 3D options. The Solid Reveal program now allows the user to activate up to 12 different changes of direction, with or without a bounce. Deletions from the Faults tab will warn the user with a confirmation dialog for both single fault deletes or the Erase Disabled functions. Reminder warnings have been added to the 2D Striplog Section and Stratigraphy Picker menus to avoid using the Hang and Vertical Clipping at the same time. ModOps Solid | Import changed the menu items to ASCII XYZG Import with and without a header. Reworked the imports to handle other delimiters in addition to a space. The RockWorks Graphics | Images | Digitize program has been redesigned. The textual reports produced by the IDataVolume and TDataVolume programs now include the name of the polygon table used for limiting the resource, the density conversion factor, and the stripping ratio type. They have been reformatted for better readability, and the Geologic Resources/Reserves summary has been moved to the bottom of the report to be more consistent with the sequence of filtering. Other reports have also been reformatted for better readability: Borehole Operations: Striplogs | Datasheet - > Borehole Survey, Striplogs | Borehole Survey, P-Data | Create Predictive Model, P-Data | Histograms by Lithology, I-Data | Statistics, T-Data | Statistics, P-Data | Statistics Utilities: Stats | Univariate, Survey | XYZ, Planes | Beta Intersections, Stats | XYZ Analysis ModOps: Grid | Directional | Trend Surface Report, Grid | Statistics | Stats - Single Grid, Grids | Statistics | Stats - Multiple Grids, Volume | Triangulation Volumetrics, Volume | Ore Grid, Volumetrics | Extract Via Surface Excavation The ModOps | Volumetrics | Extract Via Surface Excavation program now checks to make sure that the surface and the solid models have the same dimensions and issues a meaningful error message if they don’t. You can now import your 2D faults into 3D fault tab (Faults Tab | Import | Fault Table to 3D Faults. On the Fault tab, delete any value in the G-Value field will NULL the field, it will show as a blank, a database NULL value. The frame for importing Faults will now accept a blank value as a null value and not convert it to a '0'. The font dimensions for adding perimeter annotation in Google Earth is no longer shown in scientific notation and the maximum size has been increased to 10,000 meters. The RockPlot2D Annotate Border program now offers the correct options for the type of diagram (maps, sections, diagrams) and has been renamed to Annotate. Bug Fixes The solid modeling Distance filter now works correctly when modeling lithology using either the Lateral Blending or Lateral Extrusion algorithms. The ModOps | Volumetrics | Extract Via Surface Excavation program now generates a 3D diagram. Unchecking the Report option will now eliminate the report. The Stratigraphy Picker now reads numbers with thousands separators and plots formations below a depth of 1,000. The Manual option within the CSV export program now works correctly. Planes | Polylines to Planes, azimuths can represent strike or dip. Tab renamed to Directionality. I-Data Volume and T-Data Volume programs no longer generate errors if the Report option is disabled. Utilities - Stats | Ternary Diagram Titles now honor the Peripherals input values. Also applies to the Durov and Stiff diagrams. Fixed DBF import to the Datasheet, plumbing reconnected so import works. Polylines & Images -> Mult. Curved Image Panels, plumbing reconnected so it works. Also Sample file Images_Vertical_Multiple_Curved updated. Polyline & Image -> Single Curved Image Panel, plumbing reconnected so it works. Added an example file to "Polyline & Image -> Single Curved Image Panel". Sections with grid-based surface profiles no longer generate an error if there are duplicate vertex points. Sections through solids no longer generate an error if there are duplicate vertex points. 3D Shape Exports (Stratigraphy, Lithology, Water Levels, Well Construction Fractures, I-Data, T-Data and P-Data) have been moved out of the Ledger Exports due to an incompatibility of the options and purpose. The Shape exports have their own menu items as they did in RW17. Reports that are sent to Text or RTF files now use the designated Manual file name. The Solids to Animation program now scans all included solid models to find one minimum/maximum value set to fit all models in the animation. This prevents the color scheme from changing for each frame. The Solid | Export | ASCII program permits selection of G value decimal places. 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.

    I-data fonts

    Hi Craig, My tests show that I-Data Text label size is being reduced if I change from, say, 0.2 to 0.05 by a factor of 4, which should be correct. And they become downright microscopic at 0.005. In the 2D Log Design window, I-Data Text Options, be sure you are clicking on the Interval Labeling tab to adjust the label size, using the large Font button at the top of that pane. (The Font button in the other tab, Column Layout, defines the text size for the column title. Reducing this setting will not affect the labels.) Note that your section is 2,400 feet long but only 100 feet deep, which often benefits from adding some vertical exaggeration for readability. However since you are embedding the section location map in the section diagram itself, you can't do that without stretching the map, too. One option is to create the section location map as a separate window. If you continue to have problems with this, it would be helpful to have your project data and settings. Use the Borehole Manager File | Archive -> Text option and send the resulting zip file to support at rockware.com. Thanks Molly Mayfield RockWare Support
  22. Hi Craig, I moved this to the RockWorks forum, to make it easier to find. If you are asking about adding space below the lowest borehole in a 2D cross section diagram, you can do this by manually defining the desired elevation range for the diagram annotation. In RW17 this is under Perimeter Annotation Options | Elevation Range. In RW20 this is under Annotation | Elevation Range. If I misunderstood please reply with more details or a graphic example. Thanks Molly
  23. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website yesterday with the following change: Bug Fix + Descriptions that overlap page boundaries for paginated logs no longer omit or duplicate lines. 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.

  24. A new version of RockWorks2020 was uploaded to the RockWare website yesterday, with many new features, improvements, and bug fixes. New Features and Improvements RockWorks can now import 5 meter DEM's. Be aware that they create huge (>1.5M node) grids so plotting will be slow. The processing of 3D animations has been sped up by about 30%.. Changed the memory display colors for 0-25% to white text on a red background. Dates will now be saved in US format MM/DD/YEAR (i.e. 7/22/2020) for Ini, Play list and command script files. Shape file import will now read the Shape file's Projection and Coordinate Reference System (prg file). Date Format and Date Separator in the Datasheet work with 'Date' Type columns and programs that use dates. Bug Fixes Striplogs | 2D Striplog: Plot vertical with elevations for deviated holes now show correct elevations for the corresponding measured depth. Map Overlays - Prefix and Suffix prompts are wider, a consistent 100 pixels. Google Earth functions have been hidden on the Subsite dialog as they use the Project's values and not the Subsite's. Tweaked several 3D Log Design Designer Options to scroll better on a smaller screens. Draped images can now be displayed in RockPlot3D without error. The RockPlot3D export to DXF no longer has a limit on the number of entities. Declustering for Solid Models now more closely matches the user suggested spacing. When defining the labeling options for symbols, the Opaque Background setting is no longer dependent upon the Enclosing Background setting The Solid and Grids Filter now handles nulls in the grids. Double clicking on a file in the WIndow's File Explorer now opens the file even if RockWorks is already running. The Grids To Stratigraphic layers program now runs. Playlists that modify the Datasheet no longer cause a "Cannot Focus a Disabled Window" error. Total Nodes and Grid Area are calculated and shown in Grid Statistics report. 2D Grid Map | Peripherals showing the North Arrow and not showing the pattern key adjusted for Grid math items. Aquifer legend removed from ModOps - Grid | Directional | Flow Path Map We recommend that Network license users install the RockWare Network License Administrator v. 1.15.

  25. Here is another query example, from our database expert. This will give you the XYZ point for each hole where the first (shallowest) occurrence of the bedrock lith types occurs. This example illustrates the Samples database, you would need to change the lithotype names for your project: SELECT Location.Name, LithType.Name as Keyword, LithType.GValue, Easting+X1 as Easting, Northing+Y1 as Northing, MIN(Elevation-Z1) as Elevation FROM Lithology JOIN Location ON Location.BhId=Lithology.BhId JOIN LithType ON LithType.LithTypeId = Lithology.LithTypeId WHERE LithType.Name IN ("Sand", "Silt") GROUP BY Location.Name ORDER BY Location.Name and get, which pasted in a Datasheet could create a grid. You would need something like SQLite Expert Personal (Free) to get the query results to cut/paste to the datasheet Name Keyword GValue Easting Northing Elevation DH-01 Silt 3 481976.2 4399822 1762.1 DH-03 Sand 4 481951.7 4399925 1778.1 DH-04 Silt 3 482064.1 4399822 1766.487 DH-06 Silt 3 482022.7 4399784 1764.667 DH-07 Sand 4 482122.8 4399864 1816.4 DH-08 Silt 3 482025.2 4399946 1784.1 DH-09 Sand 4 481927.2 4399864 1783.5 DH-10 Sand 4 481927.2 4399781 1775.5 DH-11 Silt 3 482122.8 4399781 1767.3 DH-12 Sand 4 482122.8 4399946 1799.73 DH-13 Sand 4 481975.1 4399755 1777.6 DH-14 Sand 4 482055.9 4399773 1793.513 DH-15 Sand 4 482135.8 4399834 1812 DH-16 Sand 4 481897.7 4399829 1781.1 DH-17 Sand 4 481927.9 4399966 1772.5 DH-18 Sand 4 481986.6 4399957 1774 DH-20 Silt 3 482168.2 4399976 1792.7 DH-21 Sand 4 481996.7 4399899 1774.1 DH-22 Silt 3 482154.1 4399919 1790.3 DH-23 Sand 4 482170 4399838 1816.1 DH-24 Silt 3 482168.9 4399767 1769.9 DH-25 Sand 4 482137.6 4399730 1798.6 DH-26 Sand 4 482018 4399738 1814.5 DH-27 Sand 4 481890.6 4399748 1768.481 DH-28 Sand 4 482046.4 4399826 1810.5 DH-29 Sand 4 481880 4399874 1785 DH-30 Sand 4 481896.6 4399952 1780.4 DH-31 Sand 4 481979.8 4399998 1771 DH-32 Silt 3 482033.8 4400010 1790.3 DH-33 Sand 4 482135.8 4399997 1798.51 DH-34 Silt 3 482073.8 4399782 1766.7 DH-35 Silt 3 481982 4399796 1765.3 DH-36 Sand 4 481971.1 4399854 1779.4 DH-37 Sand 4 482037.8 4399919 1798.5 DH-38 Sand 4 481882.9 4399851 1784.7 DH-39 Sand 4 481906.3 4399997 1769.4 DH-40 Sand 4 482029.9 4399895 1801.6 DH-41 Sand 4 482078.9 4399879 1808.2 DH-42 Sand 4 482028.1 4399825 1811.2 DH-43 Silt 3 482059.8 4399945 1784.489 Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc
