  1. I've discovered that the radio buttons to change to software based OpenGL in the RockPlot3D About box isn't working, Try changing to software from the RockWorks Preferences dialog and see if that helps.


    We do sometimes encounter issues with certain manufacturers OpenGL drivers and find that the difference in performance isn't noticeable between the 2 modes. 


    If you go to the RockPlot3D About dialog there is an "OpenGL Troubleshooting" tab that has information on you drive. Please copy that to this thread.




  2. Hi Divya,

    the problem is that you only have a file path not a full file name. Without the bug report I can't say where the missing name is occurring but you may have a stratigraphy layer without a name or you're also creating a solid model with no name. Please send your bug report to support@rockware.com or attach it to this item.




  3. There are 2 Lidar programs. one creates a grid under Grid|Grid Create and one that creates a Triangle Mesh under Utilities|3D. It sounds like you're doing the first. The question is how many cells there are in your grid. Its a common mistake to set grid dimensions that are too large. While your Lidar data has a very fine resolution, using that resolution will end up with a grid surface that is unwieldy. While there is no fixed limit to the size of a grid it would be good idea to limit the grid size to 300 x 300. You can adjust from there.


    Let us know what dimensions you're using.

  4. Its not obvious but you can right click on the Edit-Text table and select "Edit Rows and Groups". You can then select an item and drag it within the current group. Save it as a data template so you don't have to do this for every new file.


  5. If you don't want the fill turn it off. In this case for less busy curves you could turn on the Resample option using Weighted Average or Cubic Spline. This may be fairly slow if you have a lot of points.

    Another option would be to Truncate the logs for a certain interval or increase the Vertical Exaggeration to spread the data vertically.

  6. If you model the arsenic you'll have several choices for extracting the level data.

    First you can create an I-Data Plan map for the elevation of your choice which creates a grid of the values. You can the use the Grid Statistics program on the grid.

    Secondly you can use your stratigraphic layers to filter the arsenic model and then run Solid Statistics on the filtered model.



  7. A model is displayed in RockPlot3D and when a view is exported to shape file format its in a 3D foprmat best viewed in ArcScene or ArcGis Pro. These shape files can be imported into ArcMap but will only show a plan view.


    Since shape files are primarily data files you'll need to use categorize them within the Arc products to get a similar view. You might also consider exporting and importing as DXF.
