  1. 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
  2. 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

  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Several customers have reported that they get an error message when trying to run RockPack III. RockPack III has expired. Please call to upgrade. To work around the problem, close RockPack, then right-click on the RockPack shortcut or EXE and choose Run As Administrator. This will increase the user privileges to allow RockPack to write the license information to the Windows Registry. One customer was not able to get paste the error even when running as administrator. This customer is now attempting to run RockPack in Windows XP Compatibility mode. To enter this mode, right-click on the RockPack shortcut or EXE, choose Properties, Compatibility | Run this program in compatibility mode for | Windows XP. If you run into this problem and the procedure stated above does not work, please let us know. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  9. Export to MODFLOW

    Hi Rosialine, You are welcome to send your large files by a file transfer web site like wetransfer.com. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  10. DEM and XYZ Temperature data

    Hi Nikos, Sorry I missed your message. Check your Z values in the DEM and in the Temperature model to make sure they are in the same range. If that does not resolve the problem, backup your project with the Borehole Manager File | Backup Database menu command and send the ZIP with your DEM and Temperature models to [email protected] and I'll take a look. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  11. create Lithology Model Interpolation

    Hi Rosialine, It looks like you have the subface filtering set to automatic to filter based on the Total Depth of the boreholes. I suggest turning off the subface filter for this data set to allow interpolation between deeper boreholes. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  12. Interval Data Plots on Strip Logs

    Hi Earl, The current version of RockWorks limits the precision to 6 decimal places, so you may need to multiply your values by a factor to have them fall in this range. For example, you could multiply by 1000 to convert permeability from darcys to millidarcys or by 1,000,000 to display "microdarcys" as the units. Programming says that they will add the ability for more than 6 decimal places in a future version. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  13. RockWorks 17 Faults

    Hi Earl, I'm glad that you were able to resolve the problem. Thanks for letting us know. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  14. RockWorks 17 - Isopach is Blank

    Hi RockLover, I'll need to look at your project and get a list of the menu settings you select to create an isopach map. Backup your project with the File | Backup Database command and send the ZIP file to support at rockware.com. Larger files may be uploaded to http://rockware.com/upload/ or shared via your Dropbox, Google Drive or other. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  15. Hi RockLover, RockWorks maps the columns in the Excel Lithology sheet to the Lithology table in RockWorks based on the column names. It can map the column named Lithology or Keyword automatically, but your Excel file has the column header named Simple Lithology, so it isn't imported. Either rename the column header in your Excel sheet, or remap the columns in the Excel import dialog box. Select the Lithology table on the Block Selection tab of the import dialog box, and click the Show Block Mapping button to match the Simple Lithology column to the Keyword field. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  16. Hi khanbhos, Sorry you are getting an error. Backup your project with the Borehole Manager File | Backup Database menu command and send the ZIP file to [email protected] and we'll take a look. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  17. RockWorks 17 Faults

    Hi Earl, You may need to move the fault. I found two wells north of the fault that have the C 2_2 unit present. Thicknesses are 54.3 and 78.0. One way to handle zero thickness Stratigraphy units is to add the unit with the same top and base depth into the wells where the unit is absent. When you create a Stratigraphy model, you can automatically null out the unit when it gets below a specified thickness. See the help topic titled Missing Formations. The Borehole Manager has the ability to insert missing formations with the Striplogs | Fill In Missing Stratigraphy menu command. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  18. RockWorks 17 Faults

    Hi Earl, It looks like the northern third of the map consists of a down-dropped fault block. You may need to turn on the display of fault polylines in the Diagram Options menu item on the left side of the menu. If this procedure does not resolve the problem, backup your project with the File | Backup Database menu command and send me the ZIP file. Files between 10MB and 130 MB can be uploaded to http://rockware.com/upload/ . Larger files can be shared via your Google Drive, Dropbox, or other option. Include a copy of your RwGrd used to create the contour map and I will take a look. Regards, Tom B
  19. DEM and XYZ Temperature data

    Hi Nikos, One way to model your data is to use the Utilities gridding and solid modeling menus. Choose the Utilities Map | Grid-Based Map menu to grid the DTM XYZ. Choose the Utilities Solid | Model menu to create a solid model of the XYZ temperature data. Choose the Utilities Solid | Filters | Grid Filters | One Bounding Grid menu to filter the model with the DTM grid and replace the nodes above ground with NULL. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  20. Plot Correlations

    Hi Pat, Turn off the option to "Create Pinchouts Within Linear Correlations" on the right side of the menu for Striplogs | 2D | Section pane to remove the pinchouts. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  21. Some customers have reported getting an Excel error: Call rejected by callee when imported or exporting files. Possible causes include: Norton Antivirus plug-in for Microsoft Office. Unplug from the network and deactivate the plugin. Unregistered or unactivated Excel. Run Excel to register and activate it with the Windows Registry . "Automation Server Busy" if there is a dialog open in Excel or a calculation is in progress. Try again later. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  22. DEM

    Hi Edward and Nikos, Thank you for your comments about RockWorks gridding algorithms. Edward: Please send your data and gridding settings in RockWorks, Surfer, and ArcGIS to [email protected] and we will be happy to pursue your request further. Include graphic examples of the contour maps with annotation indicating what you would like to change. Nikos: I agree with your comments stating that each dataset has unique requirements for choosing gridding algorithms and settings. The user should use their information about the project to choose the right interpretation. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  23. Creating a new project

    Hi Allison, The easiest way to use a RockWorks 17 project in RockWorks 16 is to export the project to an Excel file, then import it into RockWorks 16. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  24. DEM

    Hi NikosSp, To use your XYZ DEM data in your project, choose the Utilities Map | Grid-Based Map to create a RockWorks Grid file (.RwGrd). This file can be plotted on cross-sections to illustrate the ground surface and used to constrain the upper surface of a Stratigraphy model (Stratigraphy | Model | Interpolate Surfaces Options | Constraining Surface) or Lithology model (Lithology | Model | Additional Options | Superface. To combine borehole Stratigraphy information with your datasheet, choose the Borehole Manager File | Transfer menu. Create a RockWorks grid for each surface with the Map | Grid-Based Map menu. Use the Stratigraphy naming convention (formation_TOP, formation_BASE) to add them to a Stratigraphy model. To combine borehole Lithology data with your datasheet, choose the Borehole Manager File | Export | Lithology Data -> Utilities Datasheet menu. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
