  1. A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website on August 30, 2018, with the following changes: New Features: + A new text object, called Anchored Text, has been added to RockPlot2D that consolidates text with a leader line and an optional border that can be filled. The first point entered is the origin and the second point is the position of the top left corner of the text. Move the text and the anchor will stay in place or move the anchor point and the text will stay in place + The "Overlay" option in various 2D map dialogs has been changed to "Additional Layers". The program now allows you to place RP2D layers either above or below the new map content. When the setting is for Below the layers are added in reverse order. + Added an option to switch Font Quality in RockPlot2D to: Non-Antialiased , Antialiased (default), Clear Type or Clear Type Natural. Clear Type and Clear Type Natural provide better antialiasing then the Windows standard antialiasing.

  4. There is a known issue in the recent 2018.6.27 revision of RockWorks17, in which the upper and lower diffused light sources are working sporadically in RockPlot3D. We'll post a new build early next week with a fix to this - stay tuned! Sorry for any inconvenience! RockWare Support RockWare Inc.
  5. A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: New Features: + 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). + Deviated and Inclined boreholes can now be plotted in TVD (True Vertical Depth) in 2D Logs, Sections and Projected Sections. + EZMap 3D creates a 3D Delaunay Triangle Network and displays color contours based on a G Value for display in RockPlot3D. + Dogleg Severity and GridX (horizontal distance from KB x) and GridY (vertical distance from KB y) have been added to the Borehole Survey Report. + The RockPlot2D Export to RockPlot3D now exports Profiles as vertical panels. + The RockPlot2D Scalebar can now also be displayed with an alternating bar style. + Added ability when creating a new project from an existing project, to copy of any/all of their other project files: RwDat, Rw2D,RwGrd, RwMod, Rw3d, RwRpt, Rcl (or for RockWorks15 ATD, GRD, MOD, RK6, R3DXML, RW6, RCL - converted) Enhancements: + Users can now select a specific aquifer to plot in 2D striplogs. + RockWorks Data Dictionary version was updated to version 33. This adds 3 fields to work with Custom coordinate projections + The single point coordinate converter calculates only the output projections selected. + The Borehole Manager Other Coordinate Projections was re-worked to use a common frame for the projection information. + The Transfer between the Borehole Manager and the Utilities datasheet will use feet/meters for projection units (SPC, UTM, Local) + Prompts are displayed on startup for missing Documents or AppData folders. + The Symbol color for the vector symbol for each borehole was not being exported (Text and Excel) and therefore not being re-imported. + To compliment the sub-project feature the section, profile, fence and projected section pickers now display all the enabled boreholes in a project. The Truncate option has been exposed in the section selection dialog so that it can be disabled fro selecting boreholes outside of the project. + Comments for the Location can now be imported (Text/Excel) when the comments are greater than 8k. This was an issue when using SQL Server as the database engine. + The Polygon Clipping using RockPlot2D polygons now ignores polylines (e.g. contours) and polygons that are hidden. Fixes: + I-Data Striplog colors didn't match the model colors for the same value when using a color table. + Borehole Manager Adjust Total Depths will now work when the data for Stratigraphy has only Tops + When working with Stratigraphy Types Table, RockWorks will check both the Stratigraphy and Production tables for any deletes or reassignments of type values + The single point coordinate converter was not always correctly determining if the user was looking for values to be in feet or meters for the output. + RockPlot 2D once again allows coordinate conversions to Longitude/Latitude in Decimal Degrees. + Excel writer was not dimensioning the array sufficiently for the added PJParams value in the Units tab + An issue with Windows Large fonts setting has been fixed. + Fixed a text size issue with Windows 10 and builds starting with 17134 when set for large fonts (>100%) that caused some menu items to not be visible. + Fixed text placement in the 2D Log Designer window. + The Section, Profile, Fence and Projected Section selection map no longer display at a reduced size. + The defaults for the Superface and Subface replacement values is now the RW NULL. + Solid | Filters | RockPlot2D Polygon Clip no longer creates an error if the RP2D map does not contain any polygons.

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.

  10. A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following new features, enhancements, and bug fixes: New Features + An option has been added to I-Data, T-Data and P-Data to save the points used for modeling (filtered, resampled and added) to an RwDat file. This can be used in conjunction with the new stand alone High Fidelity filter (see below) or the Residuals program. + A stand alone High Fidelity Filter has been added to the Utilities | Solid | Filter. + The Solid Modeling Superface and Subface Filters now have the option to use a user specified null value. + Points, lines, polylines and polygons digitized in RockPlot2D can now be exported to the project database as new boreholes. The user can specify either a fixed collar elevation or use a surface grid to find the elevations. The new boreholes are automatically named with a "PG" plus a number. + Points and Lines digitized in RockPlot3D can now be exported to the database as boreholes. + A new Solid model Polygon filter that uses polygons in RockPlot2D has been added. This allows filtering using multiple polygons. + Polygon Filtering during Modeling can now use multiple polygons from with a RockPlot2D file. + The RockPlot2D files used for the Polygon Filter can now be in a different coordinate system than the Project's output. Enhancements + The 2D Striplog Fracture and Vector columns can now plot the tadpoles with the color in the table. + The Stratigraphy and Lithology Pickers now allow negative depths. + The Grids -> Strat program now makes sure that the paired grids share the same dimensions. Bug Fixes + Quickmap now shows the selected borehole when the input and output units don't match. + Quickmap now shows the border when the input and output units don't match. + Dimensions -> Google Earth will display in the correct place when the project is in feet + The Stratigraphy Picker now shows the entire cross section when units have depths below TD and/or above KB. + The Stratigraphy Picker wasn't drawing units with depths below 999 units. + A user may delete a field in a SQLite RW17 database. SQLite does not allow multiple transaction levels. + Only 3D Fault options will be displayed for Stratigraphic Fence diagrams. + Fixed a problem with the Catmull-Rom spline calculation for 3D Curve Ribbon that cause some lines to appear bumpy. + The Stratigraphic 3D Isopach program wasn't producing any output. + The RockPlot3D Surface filter sliders now update the minimum/maximum values correctly. + The Plot Faults option for Stratigraphic Models was sometimes being ignored. + World Outline transparency settings are now stored and loaded correctly.

  11. A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: + Added 2 additional stock animations to the RockPlot3D Video export, for rotations around the model's Z axis. + In the 2D Striplog I-Text was not correctly centered if the font angle wasn't Horizontal, Vertical or Diagonal. + The Projection Data stored in the grid and solid models now shows the units (meters vs feet) and excludes information about projections that aren't being used. + The Block Model Grade Statistics by Level program was calculating volumes using the Data Input units instead of the units of the solid model. + In the 2D Striplog the Zero Thickness Expand thickness value wasn't being saved. + The Utilities / Survey / XYZ --> Optimum Path / Plot 3D Path wasn't outputting a diagram. + Imported Surfer Binary grids now calculate the Y Spacing correctly. + Improvements to using the Help as local files: The help was not shown correctly if the computer did not have an Internet connection. The Test function in the Preferences menu was not using the correct path to the files. Also the Test function will extract the files immediately in order to test them. The help Zip file contains folder references, so the path to the help files in the preferences excludes "WebHelp" and refers to folder where WebHelp is to be installed and used. When a new Help Zip file is included in the installation and the user is using the local help, the zip file extraction is executed earlier in the RockWorks start up process to avoid file sharing problems. This does add some extra time for RockWorks to start when a new zip file is included. + Import and Export of Multiple tables Import and Export of Multiple tables were not consistent in the use of computer settings. RockWorks will now save and restore backups internally using US format settings. This allows sharing the archive files between computers with different format settings. Users manually creating or adding to the file will need to be aware of this specially for floating point numbers and dates. When a project table has a single quotation mark (') (as in Section A-A') the import will now import it. Some Unicode characters in field names caused the import to not find query parameters, causing the import to fail. + Reportworks Improvements: The background grid in Reportworks is now drawn correctly when the units are set to centimeters. The background grid in Reportworks is now set to 2 centimeters when set for centimeters. In Reportworks the coordinates for the Line and Rectangle dialog are now shown and can be modified by the user. In the Reportworks Line dialog buttons have been added to make the line Vertical or Horizontal. To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks17.

  12. A new version of RockWorks17 was uploaded to the RockWare website yesterday, with the following changes: New Feature: + Metadata is now created and saved within Grid and Solid models. These data include modeling algorithm and other related settings. Metadata can be viewed/saved as an RCL file or a text report by right-clicking on the RwGrd or RwMod file name in the Project Manager and choosing from the popup menu, or through the Grid or Solid menu Statistics | Metadata menus. This new feature will apply to new models generated in the program. Older models will simply state "no metadata" if a report is requested. + Improved selection/de-selection of children in Rockplot3D Fixes: + The Utilities | Imagery | Rectify program now generates 3D output, if requested. + Imported Surfer Binary grids now calculate the Y Spacing correctly. + RockPlot3D's reporting of the current viewing angle is correctly updated. To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks17.

  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. A customer, new to RockWorks17, saw the following error when the program first launched, as it was trying to load the Samples database: Could not open the database. Error loading MIDAS.DLL This error prevented the program from launching. This DLL is used by the RockWorks database. We install it along with the program into the RockWorks17 program directory (C:\Program Files\RockWare\RockWorks17 [64-bit version] or C:\Program Files (x86)\RockWare\RockWorks17 [32-bit]). It had been our understanding and our experience that the DLL local to the program calling it would be used. On this customer's Windows10 system, this was definitely not the case. After he confirmed that this DLL was indeed installed in the RockWorks17 program folder, we then had him search the Windows Registry on his computer for other occurrences of "MIDAS.DLL". There were two, and they referenced file locations that did not exist on his computer or network. He ran a registry cleaner which presumably removed these orphaned references, and then RockWorks17 launched successfully. Happy ending! Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc.

  18. A customer submitted a support issue for his RockWorks17 project, in which he was trying to create a Section diagram through his solid model with striplogs included. He had imported a very detailed polyline into the XY Coordinate Table - LOTS of vertices - to serve as the section trace. In the output diagram, at about a third of the way along the cross section, the logs started 'stacking up' at one location, resulting in the P-Data panels to the right displaying ok, but with no logs. The problem was best solved by using the P-Data | Projected Section diagram, in which the logs are not restricted to plot at panel edges; they are projected perpendicularly onto the panels instead. This is actually what the Projected Section diagrams were designed for - to eliminate the need to draw hole-to-hole section traces when the desired section polyline runs along a roadway, pipe, or similar, and those locations (typically imported into the RockWorks database) might be quite detailed. The problem was also solved for regular Sections by turning on the Snap feature in the Section Selection Map window before importing the section vertices. This pre-processes the section polyline such that logs can be assigned to panel junctions without confusion. Molly M RockWare Inc
  19. A new version of RockWorks17 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following bug fix: RockPlot2D maps and diagrams are no longer clipped along the top edge.

  20. A new version of RockWorks17 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following new features, improvements, and bug fixes. New Features: T-Data can now be displayed within the EZ-Section correlations. It is now possible to save the scene dimensions within RockPlot3D thereby allowing for the viewing of scene subsets. The Drape and Rectify programs can now drape an image over a selected portion of a grid. Note: The selected rectangle must be within the grid. Uniform and Circular symbols within the symbol maps may now be color-coded based on a cold (purple) to hot (red) color scheme. Lots of changes to the Stratigraphy Picker and Lithology Picker programs: + These programs now include a horizontal strip at the top of the cross-section that shows the borehole titles. This new feature solves a problem of scrolling down the logs and losing track of which logs are being displayed. It also eliminates the need to include the log titles within the Striplog Designer and the large offsets that can occur between the log titles and the log body when using vertical exaggerations. + They are now non-modal, meaning that the user may now access the main RockWorks dialog while these programs are running. + The three main work panels within the Stratigraphy Picker and the Lithology Picker are now “dockable”, meaning that they can be detached from the main form by dragging the stippled pattern within their title bars. As a consequence, they can me moved to other screens, resized, etc. When these sub-forms are dragged over the main form, small icons will appear to assist with the repositioning of the sub-forms within the main form. + Clicking on the docked panel within the new Stratigraphy and Lithology picker programs will now undock the panel. + Clicking on the Close button within floating panel will now reset the layout. + A Reset button has been added to the Picker programs to restore the original startup layout. + The Zoom, Vertical Exaggeration, and Decimal Place options within the Picker programs now include spin buttons. + The Zoom, Vertical Exaggeration, and Decimal Place options within the Picker programs are now saved between sessions. + The New button within the Stratigraphy and Lithology picker programs no longer returns the user to the main menu. Instead, the user may now select different boreholes and change other options and resume the process without restarting the process from the main menu. Improvements: Importing a Multi-Table text file into the Borehole Database no longer defaults to Local Meters if the units aren’t specified within the text file. Instead, the program now defaults to the current project units if the units aren’t specified within the text file. The Visible Menus options within the basic license now include the Borehole Manager Map and Strip Log menus. The EZ-Section correlation panels now all use the same min/max values when computing the color scheme. The new Color Legend option now works with I-Data, P-Data, and T-Data EZ-Section correlations. Bug Fixes: The Image Rectify, Image to Map, and other programs that save a raster image to a RockPlot2D diagram now set the corner point coordinates correctly. The Convert Solid to Grid algorithm now calculates the most frequently occuring points correctly. The Solid to GWV (GroundWater Vistas) Zone Matrix output has been fixed. The I-Data Fill options within the 2D Log Designer are now correctly saved. The P-Data Fill options within the 2D Log Designer are now correctly saved. The Utilities | Map | 3D Points program no longer generates a "Could not convert variant ..." error. The Utilities | Hydrology | Flowlines program no longer generates a "Could not convert variant ..." error. Draped images now show the correct colors within RockPlot3D. The State Plane Index map now properly lists Florida zone 903. The Delete View option within RockPlot3D is now visible. Images are now plotted in the correct location when draping a RockPlot3D drawing with Peripheral Images. Creating line or color contours with a faulted grid that contains null values will no longer cause the program to lock-up (infinite loop) when the null nodes correspond with the fault zone.
