  1. Cannot Open Rockworks 17

    We received the bug report and found that the error was related to syncing to OneDrive. The user was able to resolve the problem by turning off syncing or moving to a different folder. Tom B RockWare Inc
  2. 3D Stratigraphic model

    Hi Slimane, The Stratigraphy model does not match the geology map due to lack of data and the way missing formations are modeled. You may want to add data at the formation contacts on the geologic map representing the base of the younger formation and the top of the older formation. In your data, missing formations are left blank. Since there are no data points to constrain the data, RockWorks looks to other nearby wells where there are data for each formation. You may want to add missing formations with the same top and base depth (zero thickness) to help the model define the areas where the formation has been eroded away. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  3. Hi Thaïsa, I have enclosed a screen shot of one of the polygon RwDat files, and the "master" RwDat file that references each polygon file name and elevation. The "z" column is not needed in the polyg RwDat file for this application. The "cutoff value" is not present in versions that have the new functionality. You may need to update to a newer build. The feature was added in the 2017.8.21 build. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  4. Volume

    Hi Craig SS, Another common pitfall is failing to exclude cells outside a area boundary. First load the polygon into the database by importing it from DXF or SHP, or drawing on a map in RockPlot2D. Click on it to select it, then right-clock to load it to a Polygon Table. Use the Utilities Grid | Filters | Polygon Clip to exclude the area outside the specified polygon. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  5. Project Datum - NAD 27

    Here is a graphic showing the workflow. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  6. LogPlot 8 2019.2.28

    New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website with the following changes: New Features none Enhancement The Delete key in the LogDesigner works more reliably. When importing a LogPlot 7 Design File the Vertical Text Fill Background property now converts the white background color to transparent. The LogDesigner now works with the arrow keys to move the selected items. Bug Fix Well Construction items with the inner and outer diameters equal weren't plotting. Switching away from the LogPlot Pattern Picker to another program and then returning For a complete list of recent changes, please visit: 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. 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.

  7. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website with the following changes: New Features Added the ability to save "Other" projections in RockPlot2D. Improvements The Tidy Number function in Project Dimensions Scan no longer adjusts the node spacing if user specified. When transferring borehole data from the datasheet to the Borehole Manager, the transfer will honor the settings for the number of decimals based on feet, meters, decimal degrees. These may be set from the Preferences menu | Decimals. Plotting I-Text or P-Text at high vertical exaggerations in the Stratigraphic and Lithologic Picker caused the text to be plotted in the wrong locations. An Intended Vertical Exaggeration has been added to the menu. Correlation Options have been added to the Aquifer Profile to allow user to change the display style. Previously, changes to the Stratigraphy profile style were used for the Aquifer profile and there was no way to change them in the Aquifer Profile menu. The option to reverse the RockPlot3D Color Legend is now saved. The RockPlot3D Iso-Surface Cap Contour was always set to 0.05 which could cause Out of Memory errors if the models range was very large. Note that the setting for the Cap Contour Interval are set from the Legend menu. Bug Fixes When searching for projection parameters from the Master list of the Init Files: Clicking on an item will bring up the data for that item and show the which list it is from. In the case of duplicate codes, it was showing the first one in the list instead of data for the item selected. The Utilities/Solid/Export/Solid --> Groundwater Vistas Zone File was not reading numbers correctly when separated by only 1 space. Fixed bugs in the Import borehole data through the Borehole Manager: File | Import | Database (acQuire, Newmont) method: It will accept dates like 1987-02-04 for Water Levels Unable to convert 'undefined' to feet bug, occurred when jumping over the units tab page Inserting a Lithology Type (or AquiferType) looked like an error if it was already there Table Insert parameters were being mis-typed Running an RCL that creates a report or output datasheet (RwDat) without specifiying a filename now defaults to "untitled1.txt" and "untitled.rwdat". LAS Import: Select All / Unselect All buttons now work. The Select All checks the Included (Select) checkbox and for Parameter sections set the field to 'Comments', for Column Definitions for track-type tables (I-Data, P-Data, T-Data, I-Text and p-Text) it will add a new track and set the field names, for Column Definitions for non-track tables it will only set the include checkbox. The Unselect All only un-checks the Included checkboxes. The Optional fields are now refreshed for any new Location fields are added. The String_to_Degrees conversion was misinterpreting the decimal separator as a thousand separator, when it was not explicitly specified, yielding incorrect conversions specifically in the Coordinate Converter (Multiple points). A value of 30° 13' 25.66" was converted as if it was 30° 13' 2566" The face culling for RockPlot3D Voxel Models was not using the filter settings. 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. (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 2019.

  8. Hi tvdw, Instead of creating boreholes at the polygon vertices, I suggest using the RockWorks 17 Utilities Solid | Polygons -> Solid menu command. This command requires the names of polygon files saved in the Utilities datasheet .RwDat format, the upper and lower Z elevation, and the G value (environmental code). If you have any questions about the procedure, please let me know. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  9. Custom Field Names

    Hi Ismena, If you just want to label the strip logs with the permeability classification (Low, Medium, High), use the I-Text table to specify the top and bottom depths of the interval and the text that you want to use for the label. If you want to create a model of the permeability classification in addition to the Lithology model, use the I-Data table to add a numeric value for each class (Low=1, Medium=2, High=3), then model with one of the classification modeling methods such as Closest Point, Lateral Blending, or Lateral Extrusion. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  10. Custom Field Names

    Hi IsmenaB, Yes, you can use any classification scheme you like in the RockWorks Lithology table. Instead of specifying sand or shale, you can specify High, Medium, and Low permeability. Define your classification scheme in the Lithology Types table. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc

  12. I-Data Modeling

    Hi Earl, Modify an existing surface grid with the Utilities Grid | Math | Resample menu. Create a new surface grid with the same spacing and extents as the model with the Borehole Manager Map | Borehole Locations menu. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  13. I-Data Modeling

    Hi Earl, Problems with making a model honor the data are typically caused by insufficient resolution in the model. Reduce the X, Y, and Z spacing of the model or increase the number of nodes for a higher resolution model. Occasionally, other settings like Smoothing and Declustering can cause the model to not match the data. Turn off these items and run the model again. If these procedures do not resolve the problem, you are welcome to backup the database with the Borehole Manager File | Backup Database command, and send [email protected] the ZIP file with an annotated graphic illustrating the problem and any other files needed to duplicate the problem. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  14. Volume Report by I-Data Value

    Hi Jack, If you have the Advanced license level, you can automate the generation of volume reports for each of your 600 values in the Utilities Volumetrics | Block Model Grade Statistics By Level menu. All license levels also include the interactive volume method when you display the model using Voxels (instead of the Isosurface). Double-click on the model in the object manager to the left of the graphic to display the Options dialog box, add a check mark to the Filter option, and set the Low and High values. With the Show Volume option enabled, the volume is displayed for each setting. Many of the model algorithms calculate gradational values between actual data values, so you may need to specify a range for the Low and High values. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  15. Showing deviated logs in a profile section

    Hi Allison, The logs are "smeared" due to the vertical exaggeration set to 10x. The vertical difference between the right side of the log and the left side of the log is increased by a factor of 10x with this setting, causing angles to approach vertical. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
