  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Access Violation

    Hi Tom J, RockWare will often generate a bug report when it encounters an error condition. If you are prompted, click the Report Error / Restart button, save the bug report, and send it to us at [email protected] Regards, Tom Bresnahan RockWare Inc
  10. Rockworks17 Installation

    Hi Mohammed, I will contact you by email with a solution. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  11. Hi Sarika, You can use Excel without the PowerPivot add-on to import and export data between RockWorks and Excel. RockWorks data can be stored in separate sheets in Excel to mirror the database structure in RockWorks. For example, the Location table in RockWorks is stored in an Excel sheet named Location, and the Lithology table in RockWorks is stored in an Excel sheet named Lithology. Refer to the Excel files Samples Training01.xlsx and RockWorks Data Import.xls in the RockWorks \Samples\ folder. You may want to refer to the Microsoft help regarding PowerPivot tables. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  12. RockWorks16 uses wrong UTM zone?

    Hi JPascal, It sounds like the projection for the new datasheet is incorrect. Set the correct zone in the pane to the right of the sheet. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc.
  13. 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

  16. Excel import window not displaying correctly

    Hi Charlie, Specify the Excel file name and the program will display the Excel sheets and columns and the corresponding RockWorks table names and fields. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  17. RockWorks 16 - Lithology Units Crossing

    Hi P Venkat, It sounds like you are modeling lithology in the Stratigraphy table which produces 2D grid surfaces for each unit. In Stratigraphy, if a unit is absent in a borehole, the program has no data in that borehole to control the surface. To work around the problem, add a zero-thickness occurrence in that borehole to help RockWorks toe down that unit in that borehole. Another option is to model the lithology in the Lithology table and menu to create a 3D solid model for the lithology units. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  18. Hiiii Myselt Mr. P. Venkat and I am working on Rockworks 16 to create lithology sections and fence diagrams. When I am creating lithology sections for different geology (Lithology like weathered granite gneiss, semi weathered khondalite, clay and hard charnockite etc.,) I am facing a problem of crossing lithology with high thickness values(Semi weathered granite gneiss) over low thickness lithology(weathered khondalite) even it is not present at other location. Please give me your suggestions to solve my problem.. With Regards.. P. Venkat Research Scholar Dept of Geophysics Andhra University
  19. We have rolled back the official release of RockWorks 17 to the April 2018 Build, Revision 2018.4.30 due to the following issues: Triangulation gridding hangs and does not complete. Font size for some program elements is very small with the Windows 10 April Update. Display Settings Scaling greater than 100% Fix Fuzzy Apps turned on. To resolve the problem, download the April build from the RockWare web site, and run the installation program without uninstalling the May build. Download the 64-bit version of the April build. or Download the 32-bit version of the April build. We'll keep you posted as fixes become available. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  20. LogPlot 8 2018.5.31

    The May builds of LogPlot8 Revision 2018.5.31 (32-bit and 64-bit) were released with the following changes: Enhancements: + The LogView now has a Go To Page (Ctrl+G) option. Fixes: + In the Data Sheet you no longer get an Access Violation attempting to type right after inserting new rows. + Fixed problem saving data to RockWorks when Options dialog was turned off. + Fixed problem turning the Options dialog back on.

  21. The May 2018 version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) Revision 2018.5.31 is being released with the following changes: New Features: + RockPlot2D exports Profiles to RockPlot3D as vertical panels. + Dogleg Severity and GridX (horizontal distance from KB x) and GridY (horizontal distance from KB y) have been added to the Borehole Survey Report. + Utilities Map | EZMap 3D creates a 3D Delaunay Triangle Network and displays color contours based on a XYZG Value for display in RockPlot3D. (Can be slow with large data sets.) + Deviated and Inclined boreholes can now be plotted in TVD (True Vertical Depth) in 2D Logs, Sections and Projected Sections. + Vertical Images to Polylines and Vertical Image To Polyline programs have been added to the Utilities / Imagery menu. It takes a raster image and splits it to the segments of a polyline (RwDat). Improvements: + The Transfer between the Borehole Manager and the Utilities datasheet will use feet/meters for projection units (SPC, UTM, Local) instead of 0 and 1. + Users can now select a specific aquifer to plot in 2D striplogs. Fixes: + I-Data Striplog colors didn't match the model colors for the same value when using a color table.

  22. Need help to create a 2D striplog section

    Hi asif, To change the column width of each data type, view the options in the 2D Striplog Designer for that type. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  23. Hi ezaldeen, I cannot find the attached file. Please post it again. The jagged edges are the result of the triangles used to show the contour color fills. Turn off the color fills or draw a white rectangle to cover the jagged edges. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  24. Hi ezaldeen, The settings in the menu on the left specify that the value inside the polygon should be changed to 0, and the values outside the polygon are unchanged. To specify contours inside the polygon, change the Filter Type to Exterior and the New Exterior Value to NULL. You may also want to change the Output (Grid) Model name from Undefined_out... to a more meaningful name. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  25. If your lithology types are numeric values, you can create a solid model. In the Utilities datasheet, each lithology value requires an X, Y, an Z value where X and Y are easting and northing, and Z is elevation. Normally, lithology is modeled in the Borehole Manager, where the Location table defines the borehole name. XY location, and elevation. The Lithology table associated with each borehole has the Depth-To-Top, Depth-To-Base, and Lithology name. RockWorks converts the depths to elevations based on the elevation of the borehole. The Lithology Types table defines the Lithology Names and corresponding numeric G-values, patterns, colors, and other information. You are welcome to send your data file and I'll take a look.
