  1. A new version of RockWorks 17 was uploaded to the RockWare website with the changes listed below. For a complete list of the recent changes, please visit: https://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/current_revisions.htm To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks 17. Or visit the demo download page: https://www.rockware.com/product/rockworks/#product_inquire_form_1494_tabNote that you will not be able to use this new build of the program if your maintenance has expired. Contact RockWare Sales or visit the new Customer Portal (https://www.rockware.com/customer/index.php) if you would like to update your maintenance. Improvements (12/28/17) Implemented FireDAC's Array DML to speed up imports. This basically fills an array with the new data and sends it to the database all at once, reducing the back and forth communication with the database engine. It was applied to the new import, the Penetrometer import, the Geoprobe DI import, the multi-column I-Data, P-Data, etc. imports, and the copying of data from one project to a new project. (12/21/17) Added ability in Utilities Map | EZ-Map to color code symbols by value in a column. (12/20/17) Added option to specify Gridding Options Max Distance Cutoff in ft/m. Previously was only in percent of project extents. (12/15/17) Added an IsoSurface/ Voxel option to the Solid | Morph. (12/11/17) Utilities/Survey/Lidar To Cloud program. This program will load huge files (4.5GB tested) and display them as a point cloud. There is an option to specify Red, Green and Blue columns or use a single color. Very large files can be decimated (recommended). Fixes (12/28/17) 0007208: Dimensions dialog in RockPlot3D, View- Dimensions. The "Reset Defaults", "Stretch Fit" and the center coordinates weren't working. (12/21/17) 0007205: Fixed problem in Utilities Survey | XYZ -> Optimum Path | Plot 3D Path. Output graphic was not being created. Regards, Tom Bresnahan RockWare Inc

  4. A new version of RockWorks 17 was uploaded to the RockWare website with the changes listed below. For a complete list of the recent changes, please visit: https://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/current_revisions.htm To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks 17. Or visit the demo download page: https://www.rockware.com/product/rockworks/#product_inquire_form_1494_tabNote that you will not be able to use this new build of the program if your maintenance has expired. Contact RockWare Sales or visit the new Customer Portal (https://www.rockware.com/customer/index.php) if you would like to update your maintenance. Fixes: (11/29/17/MIW): The Show RCL settings for the Grid Gonstant Math now show the correct variables.(040) (11/20/17/MIW): The Borehole Survey Report now lists the inclination in the same system as that which is specified within the input menu. (11/20/17/MIW): The Utilities | Planes | Strike & Dip Diagram (3D) menu is now displayed without errors or extra menu items (11/13/17/JCJ): The Edit-As-Datasheet option now shows all of the data rows. (11/13/17/JCJ): Import of types from a Text or LogPlot keyword file once again imports the pattern definitions. Some duplicated code to parse patterns was eliminated. (11/13/17/JCJ): The Foreign Key / Types Editor (for Aquifer, Bitmap, Lithology, Stratigraphy, and Well-Construction types) background grid color is no longer ignored. (11/13/17/JCJ): The Pattern Comparison dialog prompt's font in no longer incremented every time it is used. (11/01/17/JCJ): Duplicate borehole checking now works again. (11/01/17/JCJ): Installation of local help was not being installed when the version date got out of sync. (11/01/17/JCJ): Import I-Data was not importing due to the import reader reading past the end of the file. (10/30/17/JCJ): The State Plane conversion now works correctly. (10/23/17/JCJ): The View | Select boreholes now shows the boreholes when the data units and Model unit are different. Specifically; When there were mixed units (e.g. feet vs. meters) between input (database data) and output units (Grid and Model Dimensions, there was an issue with the Scan boreholes function to calculate the dimensions corectly. This was most notable when working with subsite dimensions. Please note: the dimensions are always shown in the Output dimension units (this was also fixed to display correctly) (10/20/17/JCJ): The Excel/Text import has been re-designed to import data within the correct sequence. Specifically, the previous version iterated over the import as it is stored in the file, which broke the importer as it needs to import in a sequence to maintain the data's relational integrity (i.e. import the Stratigraphy Types and Locations before Stratigraphy). (10/09/17/JCJ): The single-table Excel and Text imports now work correctly (again). Improvements: (11/30/17/MIW): Changes to the Orientation Resolution will now rescan the borehole data in order to recompute the XYZ coordinates along the borehole. (11/30/17/MMM): The Help menu now has a Show Log menu item within the Miscellaneous section. (11/29/17/MIW): The Automatic Increment for deviated boreholes is now based on the elevation range of the project rather than the "project diagonal" (distance from maximum SW elevation to minimum NE elevation). This convention works better for horizontally large projects with shallow boreholes. (11/22/17/JPR): The Preferences | RockPlot/3D menu now displays an option labeled "Hide warning when overwriting tables." This replaces a previous checkbox where the text was garbled (i.e. "Don't show his dialog."). If unchecked, RockPlot3D will display an overwrite warning when appending other RockPlot3D diagrams into the current diagram. These files may contain lithology and stratigraphy tables that are different than the current diagam. For example, let's say that you've displayed a new 3D log diagram and append a stratigraphy model that was created before adding some new stratigraphy types. In this case, the stratigraphy table within the old file will not include the new stratigraphy types. (11/20/17/MIW): Multiple labels may now be pasted as one group into the Morph Models | Labels dialog. (11/13/17/JPR): The Utilities | Solid | Polygons -> Solid program has been rewritten to work correctly. (11/13/17/JCJ): When a project uses SQL Server logins (versus a Trusted connection/OS Authentication), the login of User name and Password can be a part of the connection parameters. This is done from the Advanced button on the Connection editor (or Database Engine tab in the New Project Wizard). Uncheck "Use Trusted Connection" and the enter values for User_Name and Password in the FireDAC Connection Editor dialog. If one or both of these are left blank a Login dialog will appear when opening the database and allow the user to enter them. The values will be cached for the session so the login dialog appears only once, instead of multiple times, but not saved. The behavior change is the caching of the user name and password and suppression of multiple appearances of the login dialog. (11/13/17/JCJ): The Foreign Key / Types Editor (for Aquifer, Bitmap, Lithology, Stratigraphy, and Well-Construction types) allows the user to create and show user-defined fields. Look for it in the Edit menu of the Types Editor. (11/13/17/JCJ): A memory leak in the Foreign Key / Types Editor has been plugged. (11/02/17/MIW): Some typos within the Collada Export menu have been fixed. (11/02/17/MIW): An option has been added to the RockPlot3D configuration for disabling the double-buffering. This addresses a rare problem with selected Intel video cards. (11/02/17/MIW): An option has been added to the RockPlot3D | Collada Export for including "normals". (11/02/17/MIW): The item spacing within the Collada Export | Select menu has been fixed. (11/01/17/MIW): A Collada (dae) export option has been added to the RockPlot3D program. Only one object at a time can be exported. The choices can be confusing on busy scenes so it's best to turn off items in the scene first. Some programs such as Sketchup require that the coordinates are shifted to a 0,0,0 origin and there's an option on the dialog for this. The Collada file and it's texture file are separate files and must be in the same folder but they can be moved. The texture file either contains the colors or a draped image. Here's a link to a free Collada viewer: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0ahUKEwi_nNXjqJ7XAhVkw4MKHTODAU0QFggoMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.open3mod.com%2F&usg=AOvVaw0XzczrnZV0ppVH4ypd30AR (11/01/17/JCJ): Bulk Conversions from and to Easting/Northing updates the progress bar more consistently when processing large number of boreholes and allows the user to cancel the operation. Also during the bulk conversion to PLSS the messages showing the hunt for Meridian/Township/Range and Section are suppressed . (10/27/17/MIW): It is now possible to select multiple items within the ReportWorks Layer List. This new capability works with the Delete Layers and Select Layer Items options. (10/27/17/MIW): The ReportWorks custom scaling no longer resets the y-scale when changes are applied. (10/19/17/MIW): The memory report no longer generates negative numbers. (10/19/17/MIW): The memory report no longer changes to the same color as the background if the available memory drops below 25%. (10/18/17/MIW): The layer information is now saved when importing DXF polylines into RockPlot2D. (10/18/17/JCJ): Help is now included with the installations. Whether to use it or not, is still set in the Preferences | General Program Settings | Help System. The date of the zip file is maintained so if a newer version is included in the installation it will be un-zipped automagically (only if RW is set to use the local help). If the help is set from the web back locally the date will be checked at that time and unzipped if necessary. This solves the a paradox in which users without web access could not download the help files to use them locally. Tom Bresnahan RockWare Inc
  5. Hi David, Our staff have sent you an email with a link to a test build. We'll release it publically after testing. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  6. Hi Edward, Thanks for the suggestion! I'll add it to the suggestion file. One way to simulate TVD is to set the ground elevation to 0.0 and plot elevation along the depth track, though this procedure is not intended to work with the Plot Vertical option. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  7. Hi Drew, I suggest plotting the profiles in 3D and digitizing 3 points from the each fault plane on 2 profiles to calculate the fault dip and direction. 1. To plot the profiles in 3D, you will need the XYZ coordinates of the lower left and upper right corner or each profile. Use the Utilities Imagery | Vertical (Images -> Vertical 3D Panels menu to plot the panels. 2. When the panels are displayed in RockPlot3D, click on the Digitize button and click 2 points along the trace of the fault on the first panel. Click 1 point along the trace of the same fault on the second panel. Copy the points to the Utilities datasheet in 9 columns: X1 Y1 Z1, X2 Y2 Z2, X3 Y3 Z3. 3. Calculate the dip angle and direction with the Utilities Planes | 3 Points -> Planes | Multiple menu command. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  8. Hi cburkett304, The P-Data model can become blank if you reverse the top and bottom grids for the superface and subface, or if you have other filtering options enabled, such as polygon clipping. If you are unable to resolve the problem, you are welcome to backup your project with the File | Backup Database menu command and send the ZIP file to support@rockware.com. Larger files may be uploaded to https://rockware.com/upload/ Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  9. A new version of RockWorks 17 was uploaded to the RockWare website with the following changes: Fixes: Borehole Manager File | Import | Single Tables has been fixed. RockPlot2D DXF Import fixed to import objects to separate layers if selected. Scan boreholes for subsites with different XY units in the borehole than in the project dimensions works correctly. Excel and Text import fixed to import data in the correct sequence to maintain relational integrity. View | Select Boreholes fixed to show boreholes even when borehole XY are feet and project dimensions are meters. New Features and Improvements RockPlot3D added Vertical Exaggeration to the main window for easier changes. RockWorks help is now included with the installation. Previously, help was available only on the web or locally if specified after installation. The help file will be updated locally when it changes. For a complete list of the recent changes, please visit: https://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/current_revisions.htm To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks 17.

  10. Hi cburkett304, I split your message into a new thread. To make the grid match the solid model dimensions, recalculate the grid with the current dimensions, or resample the grid to the current dimensions in the Utilities Grid | Math | Resample menu. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  11. Hi cburkett304, Your screen shot shows that you have the option turned on that creates a 2D map of the converted grid file, and there may be menu settings in this dialog that are generating the error message. Turn off this option to see if that is the cause of the problem. If this procedure does not resolve the problem, you are welcome to backup your project with the File | Backup Database menu command and send the ZIP file to support@rockware.com. Larger files may be uploaded to https://rockware.com/upload/ Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  12. New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website with the following changes. Fixes: + The height of Comments in the Lithology Description was being increased by 1 line. This lead to extra room being allocated below the comment. + Contact lines for Lithology Descriptions weren't matching the correct intervals on pages after the first page. + Exporting a log at a output resolution that is an exact multiplier of the screen resolution (eg. 288 divided by 96) triggered an assertion exception.

  13. A new version of RockWorks 17 was uploaded to the RockWare website with the following changes: The ChkMaint.dll is now implemented with the DelayLoad option to work around problems installing RockWorks. The ChkMaint.dll error is reported in the Setup Log*.txt in %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp\ The command line argument /force=true helps to work around problems installing RockWorks with the ChkMaint.dll error. Project Dimensions are now displayed when specified after importing an Excel file into the Borehole Manager. Fixed a problem with Google Earth export fragmenting memory. Fixed a problem with digitizing points in RockPlot2D. Data | Options | Export: clipboard and text file were not working, Updated link to unlock RockWorks via the web. Fixed a problem with RockPlot2D - File | Import | DXF: local map origin not being saved. Fixed a problem with the borehole name and data out of sync when hiding disabled boreholes. Fixed a problem resizing an image in RockPlot2D. Fixed a problem in Hydrology/ Drawdown tools not working correctly with Imperial units for Easting/Northing. Fixed a problem with Infrastructure not plotted if it intersects a borehole in a section. Fixed a problem with Graphix / 3D Utilities / Infrastructure, Building Labels not plotting. Added a feature to plot a deviated borehole vertically in Striplogs | 2-Dimensional.

  14. Hi Daniella, Since the subface filter is difficult to create, you may want to try a vertical cutoff filter when you make the T-Data model. In the Solid Modeling Options, add a check mark to the Cutoff-V option under the Additional Options section on the right, and specify the distance of percent for the cutoff filter. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  15. Hi Daniella99, 1. It sounds like there is a mix of date formats between US dates and your date format in Windows. You are welcome to send your Excel file and Windows country and date settings to support@rockware.com or upload a ZIP file to https://www.rockware.com/upload/ and we'll take a look. 2. If you want to limit values below the sampled interval of your T-Data, create a gridded surface on the base of the sample interval and use that as your Subface Filter. You are welcome to send a ZIP file with your project. Create a backup with the File | Backup Database menu command and send or upload the file. Note: To prevent the ticks from being stretched, set the Intended Vertical Exaggeration value Perimeter Annotation Options of the Projected Section menu. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
