  1. If you have the RockWorks 16 build 2015.12.9 or RockWorks 17 build 2015.10.15 installed, you may see this error displayed when you check for updates when you launch RockWorks: Ancestor for pnlDirectory not found This simply means that the program has detected a new version on our website (which we posted today) and there may be a problem with the window which displays the new-update message. This problem pertains to the check-for-updates window only and does not affect the rest of the program. You can manually download and install the RockWorks update by following these steps: 1. Click on one of these links: RockWorks 16: https://www.rockware.com/assets/products/165/product_demo/229/rockworks16_installation.exe RockWorks 17: http://www.rockware.com/assets/products/165/product_demo/239/rockworks17_installation.exe 2. Save the installation program to your computer. 3. When the download is complete, run the installation. Do not uninstall the existing program first. 4. When the installation is complete, launch RockWorks. Note that because the bug is with the auto-updater, you'll need to manually download this build. The auto-updater should work for future updates. Let us know if you have any questions about this. Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc (TB- edit to add Rw16 )
  2. We uploaded a new revision of RockWorks16 today, with the following changes: + Double-clicking on an RwDat file no longer raises an exception when the "Load Last-Used File in Datasheet on Start-Up" option is activated. + Scattergrams now use the diagram size to set symbol and label sizes for consistent results. + Raster images are now stored in RockPlot2D as PNG images. This enables faster load times and smaller files. Saving files, however now takes a bit longer. + The Utilities | File | Print program no longer incorrectly offsets the columns by 1.

  3. We uploaded a new revision of RockWorks16 today, with the following changes: + Fixed a bug introduced in yesterday's published build which rendered unrecognizable the PLSS Landgrid tables (stored in C:\ProgramData\RockWorks\Landgrid). (Note that these U.S. landgrid files are installed separately from the RockWorks program. If you have already downloaded these landgrid files, you don't need to do so again. You'll just need to reinstall a newer build of the RockWorks16 program itself.)

  4. We uploaded a new revision of RockWorks16 today, with the following changes: + RockWorks is now re-enabled if the backup fails. + The Datasheet / Import / Shape File program now displays status messages as the Shape file is being imported. + The AGL Editor (accessed from the RockPlot2D / File / Import / AGL program via the Edit/Create option) no longer generates an error when selected. + RockWorks will now gracefully shut down if a connection to an SQL server is lost. This eliminates the need to used the Task Manager to shut it down. + The RockPlot3D Isosurface Options menu now includes a button titled "Add + Hide Model". This new option will change the Draw Style for the model to Hidden thereby insuring that the new slice will be visible. + The RockPlot3D Solid Model Options menu now includes a button titled "Add + Set Style to Point". This new option insures that the new slice will be visible. + The StripLog / Projected Section menu now includes options for activating/de-activating the clipping. + The symbol that is used for showing the top of a borehole now plots correctly if the clipping is enabled when plotting 2D striplogs. + The calculated volume and mass for stratigraphy volumetrics that are based on grid models is now converted to the selected output units.

  5. If you use the Edit | New Borehole menu option to manually add a new boring to the current project database, it's important that you first fill in all of the required fields - Name, Easting, Northing, Z (Elevation), Collar Elevation, and TD - in the Location table's Collar Coordinates tab. Even if you don't know some of these, such as Easting and Northing, you have to enter something into these fields, such as 0. Then, once the borehole record has been created and added to the database (you might even have to click away and click back to the record) THEN you can click on the Other Coords tab to enter known coordinates (e.g. lon/lat). At that time you can use the To Easting/Northing button to compute the Easting and Northing coordinates. Or you can do this in bulk via the Edit | Coordinate Converter (To Easting/Northing) menu option. If you try to enter the Other Coords data and compute Eastings and Northings without having first created the borehole record in the database, you will see the error, "Value Required - Borehole Name Must Have a Value".

  8. This new build fixes the issue with the unparented panel and installs the file MSVCP100.DLL in the RockWorks16 folder. Thanks, Tom B RockWare Inc
  9. This new build includes fixes for solid model warping and lithology Hi Probability smoothing.
  10. We uploaded a new revision of RockWorks16 today, with the following changes: + A new solid modeling method - Highest Probability - has been added. It builds a table of all unique g-values encountered within the control points. For each of these g-values, a probablity model is created based on the inverse-square law. The program then assigns the final node values based on the g-value with the highest probability. Although this program is designed primary for lithologic modeling, it may also be used with other types of data with the caveat that the processing time increases with the number of unique g-values + Lithology modeling methods have been more clearly delineated in the menus, with the options being: - Closest Point - Lateral Blending (formerly Lateral-Extrusion/Advanced) - Lateral Extrusion (formerly Lateral-Extrusion/Simple). This method has also been improved to better handle clustered boreholes. - Highest Probability (new!) + Block model Declustering has been completely redesigned. + Block model Smoothing has been completely redesigned. Instead of using a "box filter" it now uses a cylinder, whose height and radius are user defined. In addition, a warping surface can be specified to tilt the smoothing cylinder. + 2D faulting has been added to the following gridding methods (in addition to Inverse-Distance): - Kriging - Triangulation - Directional Weighting - Distance to Point - Classification + Grid Declustering has been completely redesigned. + A new tool for identifying "overpopulated" cells is available in the Striplogs menu, to help users identify model zones with clustered/conflicting data (vertical holes only). + There are new options for fine-tuning the calculation of the XYZ coordinates downhole, particularly for inclined or deviated holes. + The Grid-Based Map program has been split into two parts, one for gridding XYZ data, and one for gridding XYZ plus dip data. (simplifies the menus) + A new 3-dimensional Lineations program has been added to the Linears | Lineation Properties menu + A Default View has been added to all RockPlot3D scenes + New intensity options have been added to the RockPlot3D lighting menu And much more!

  11. A user recently reported a problem with missing images in the RockWorks16 Help topics, both those embedded in the Instructions pane in the program menus, as well as those in the Help | Contents system. Instead of seeing the pictures he only saw a box with an "X". This type of compiled html help uses Internet Explorer components to display the text and graphics. Typically, the blocking of any content is related to security settings established in IE. The solution was to reset the user settings in Internet Explorer: Tools | Internet Options | Advanced | Reset. Note that this process resets IE back to factory default settings so you will need to go back in to IE to enable toolbars and add-ons, privacy settings, security settings, and more (no small task).

  12. A customer recently reported a problem after successfully copy/pasting a column of depths and a column of measurement values into the P-Data table's Datasheet Editor - not all of the data were posted back to the database. Here's an excerpt of what their data looked like in Excel: Depth P-Data (etc.) 980 26.275 985 26.46 990 26.645 995 26.83 1,000.00 27.015 1,005.00 27.2 1,010.00 27.385 1,015.00 27.015 1,020.00 26.6 (etc.) The data looked fine when pasted into the Datasheet Editor, but once posted to the database the listing did not continue past depth 995. The issue is that the routine that RockWorks uses to post values from the datasheet editor back to the database assumes that the values DO NOT have thousands separators. So, be sure to format your data in Excel to omit the character separating the thousands groupings: 1000.00 rather than 1,000.00 (Decimal places are fine, and will be assumed to be the "." or "," character which is defined in your Windows Region/Language settings.)

  13. We uploaded a new revision of RockWorks16 today, with the following changes: Level 4+ + Color Modeling works properly with declustering and faulting. + Volume and mass calculations are labeled with the project's output units. + Density units can be defined in the Lithology and Stratigraphy Types tables. Level 3+ + Stratigraphy and Lithology Types tables can be exported to the Utilities datasheet. Level 2+ + Block model Grade Statistics by Level now allows you to specify density units. + Grid and solid models can be created from comma-delimited text files. + Run analyses on existing lithology and stratigraphy models (Solid | Statistics menu) + A new Zones program performs the Solid -> Grid functionality for multiple top-base grid regions. It also creates Shapefile output. + New Multiple Polygons -> Grid program assigns grid node values within multiple polygons. + Improvements to the Movement Analysis and Directional Analysis calculation of dip angle. + Improvements to the warping and tilting features within the block modeling programs + The coordinate conversions now work correctly if the coordinate system is the same but the units are different (e.g. feet to meters) + The PicShow AVI Export now allows the user to set the frame-rate (in frames per second) within the output file RockPlot2D + Cross sections with vertical exaggeration > 1 are no longer clipped when exported to a raster format. + Color legends with negative value ranges no longer show a blank color block RockPlot3D + Blocks and surfaces exported from RockPlot3D to Google Earth are now more accurately registered. + Isosurfaces exported from RockPlot3D to Google Earth are no longer flattened. + Items with opacity less than 100% are now exported correctly from RockPlot3D to Google Earth.

  14. We've uploaded a new build of RockWorks16 today, with the following improvements: Level 3+ The Other Coords | PLSS Range East/West radio button OnClick Event is now triggered correctly, preventing some coordinate translation errors. Extraneous tab characters in text files being imported via File | Import | Text | Multiple-tables are now ignored. LAS import works when the machine is set to non-US number formats, the LAS file is assumed to be in US/Canadian format for floating point numbers Multiple/Bulk LAS import can now map existing boreholes to the Well Name, API number or UWI number in LAS header When using the Tab Manager, to work with tables and fields, it will open positioned on the same table as the current data sheet. In the ADO import, the dialog to get the Overwrite option (Create New/Skip/Replace) was not moving to the next record when the Skip option was selected. 3D striplog stratigraphy intervals are correctly labeled. Level 2+ Extraneous contours are no longer drawn when a grid is bordered by null values. Pattern editor Preview displays the correct pattern density. 3D points plot properly when you use a lookup table. Level 1+ Location of pattern and symbol files in installation changed to agree with where they are really installed. RockPlot3D export of vertical image panels to Google Earth no longer triggers an error.

  15. We've uploaded a new build of RockWorks16 today, with the following improvements: Level 5 (RockWorks Professional): - Faults Faults Faults! Apply single or multiple, simple or complex faulting to your solid models. This involves defining the fault polyline location(s), dip angle and dip direction in the Utilities datasheet, creating a binary "fault file", then using that with your regular modeling method to restrict data influence across the fault planes. Level 4 (Borehole Modeling) and higher: - Redesigned lithology modeling options window, more consistent with gradational modeling options - P-Data, I-Data, T-Data, Fracture, Color "Surface" maps offer the option to extract from the top, middle, or bottom of the voxel - this prevents blank or spotty maps when using the same extraction surface as was used to constrain the model (e.g. ground surface) - Add external control points to the I-Data, T-Data, P-Data solid modeling process for extra control Level 3 (Borehole Logs and Sections) and higher: - Add "picklists" to your database tables (e.g. lithology details) - Improved handling of raster log images in logs and cross sections - better transparency Level 2 (RockWorks Utilities) and higher: - New Lateral Extrusion modeling method for discrete real number values - like lithoblending for quantitative models - All new solid modeling options window for easier navigation - Create new line-and-symbol maps, great for plan views of horizontal petroleum wells. - Use the new Table-Based Replacement Filter to replace discrete values in a solid model (e.g. lithology) with other values (e.g. hydraulic conductivity) - Use the new Faults menu tools to create: + 3D oriented "ribbon" displays + binary "fault" files which can be used to apply faulting to borehole-based solid models + Boolean fault models for a block model view of the fault plane locations - Solid model resampling offers a closest-point method for lithology and stratigraphy solids Level 1 (EarthApps, Plot windows) and higher: - A new "RockWorks15 to RockWorks16" converter program is now installed with RockWorks16, for batch updating of ATD, RK6, R3DXML, GRD, and MOD files to the new formats - Improvements to the Rockplot3D video exports Oh, and we've fixed a few bugs, too...

  16. While we don't like to post new builds on Friday (as we go into the weekend) we made an exception today because this build fixes some important items: + RockPlot3D: no more Access Violation when right-clicking on an item in the data tree. + Borehole Manager: Fix to Access Violation on new Value List fields which you can add to Lithology, Stratigraphy, other data tables. + Borehole Manager: Export to Excel, on systems set up to Swedish number format ("123 456 789,00") AND where there are > 2 decimal places - changed the way the numbers are exported so that Excel does not incorrectly understand them. + Utilities: Export to Excel - changed the way numbers are exported so that Excel does not incorrectly understand them on systems not using a US number format. + Added a Set Entry Defaults button on the Other Coords tab (Location table) where you can set up the default coordinate zones/meridians/etc. for hand-entered data. + Problems in the solid model smoothing (this was fixed in the 5.28 build) You can download this build either from within RockWorks itself (Help | Online Information | Check for Updates) or by following these steps: 1. Click on this link: http://www.rockware.com/assets/products/165/product_demo/229/rockworks16_installation.exe 2. Save the file to your local computer (e.g. Downloads folder or Desktop). 3. When the download has completed, you can run the installation. Do not uninstall the existing RockWorks first. 4. When the installation has completed, you can start up the RockWorks16 program. Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc.
  17. The most recent public build of RockWorks16 (2014.5.20) has a known issue with the Smoothing option in gradational (I-Data, P-Data, T-Data) solid models. You'll need to turn off smoothing when generating new models. Or, if you prefer you can download a previous public build please contact tech support and we can arrange for a download. Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc.
  18. In RockWorks16 we've added new "smarts" to the program for data sets with lots of missing stratigraphic data, such as historic data which can be downloaded from commercial and state sources. This topic addresses the "insert missing units" rule. This rule is displayed in the Rules and Filters pane along the right side of many of the RockWorks program menus. The Insert Missing Units rule was added to the program for situations like this, in which formations have pinched out and are not present in a borehole: HOLE-A HOLE-B Fm_A 0 20 Fm_B 0 25 Fm_D 20 30 Fm_C 25 35 Fm_G 30 50 Fm_G 35 50 If the Insert Missing Units rule is on, then it does NOT add missing formations to the database, but WILL determine the location for the unit as it passes points to the modeling routine. For example, it will include a point for FmB in Hole-A at depth of 20 (the elevation represented there), even though it will not add the unit to the Stratigraphy data table. However, if you have already added the missing formations to the database, manually or via the Striplogs | Insert Missing Stratigraphy program, and your data looks like this: HOLE-A HOLE-B Fm_A 0 20 Fm_A 0 0 Fm_B 20 20 Fm_B 0 25 Fm_C 20 20 Fm_C 25 35 Fm_D 20 30 Fm_D 35 35 Fm_E 30 30 Fm_E 35 35 Fm_F 30 30 Fm_F 35 35 Fm_G 30 50 Fm_G 35 50 Then turning on the Insert Missing Units rule may cause duplicate tops. This is most pronounced when you have multiple sequential zero-thickness units. It is probably best to choose which strategy to use for missing (pinchout) formations and do this throughout the project - either omit them from the database and have the Insert Missing Units rule insert them on the fly, or insert them manually and turn off the Insert Missing Units rule. More details and examples about the strat rules are in the help messages. There's also a recording of a webinar addressing pinchouts on our website and on Rockware's YouTube channel. Molly Mayfield Rockware Inc.
  19. We've uploaded a new build of RockWorks16 today, with the following changes: RockWorks Professional (Level 5) + RockWorks can accommodate MDB project databases that lie outside the project folder. RockWorks Borehole Modeling (Level 4) and higher + Polygon filters have been added to the lithology modeling options. + Polygon filters and upper/lower surface filters are applied during rather than after lithology modeling, making the process faster. + Grid surfaces with null values can be used to warp lithology models. (This example is warped with a faulted surface.) RockWorks Logs & Sections (Level 3) and higher + Improved memory management for handling raster images in 2D striplogs + Improved LAS import options for assigning/mapping well name to the database + More transparency options for raster images in 2D striplogs RockWorks Utilities (Level 2) and higher + The size of solid models that may be viewed within RockPlot3D without generating an out-of-memory error has been increased. + More options for smoothing solid (block) models: most-common-value in addition to averaging; tools for opting out "sacrosanct" nodes; more smoothing passes. These allow for effective grouping of fine lithology zones. RockWorks EarthApps (Level 1) and higher + The scaling for RockPlot3D to Google Earth exports now adjust for dimension changes over large areas at different latitudes (i.e. x and y are scaled independently).

  21. We forgot to post this detailed list of changes from April 9th! Here's a quick summary of the new features of the 2014.4.9 version of RockWorks16; for the detailed revisions list (all changes and fixes) please visit: http://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/rw16_current_revisions.htm RockWorks Professional (Level 5) + Import commercial land grid data - create custom PLSS libraries in addition to the built-in RockWorks Landbase. RockWorks Borehole Modeling (Level 4) and higher + List strike and dip with your stratigraphic contacts, and use the new dip-gridding algorithm to interpolate structural surfaces. RockWorks Logs and Sections (Level 3) and higher + Expanded Bitmaps table in the Borehole Manager - define different Bitmap Types, to maintain multiple images for each borehole. + More options for raster images in striplogs - choose Bitmap Type, preserve aspect ratio, in both 2D and 3D logs. + Query the database on Aquifer name, sampling date, Bitmap type; other database query improvements. + Improved Excel export from the Borehole Manager. + Clean up noisy borehole survey measurements common from automated collection tools. RockWorks Utilities (Level 2) and higher + Create structural surfaces from orientation data (XYZ, dip-direction, dip-angle data) using "dip-gridding" algorithm. + Display dip data (e.g. points along a fault, contact, bedding plane) as "dip ribbons" (single and multiple). + Create well production diagrams in both 2D and 3D. RockWorks EarthApps (Level 1) and higher + Use the new Row Editor when collecting data in the field on your tablet. + Use linked "pick lists" for field data collection. + Enable/disable the automatic Google Earth elevation offset (see the dip ribbons above). + Add titles to RockPlot3D scenes, including lists for morphed scenes. + Add logos to your RockPlot3d scenes. + Choose recent projects from the main program window. To download the latest version of RockWorks16, please follow these steps: 1. Click on this link: http://www.rockware.com/assets/products/165/product_demo/229/rockworks16_installation.exe 2. Save the file to your local computer (e.g. Downloads folder or Desktop). 3. When the download has completed, you can run the installation. Do not uninstall the existing RockWorks first. 4. When the installation has completed, you can start up the RockWorks16 program. Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc.
  22. If you are working with RockWorks16, Level 5, and a SQL Server database, you may see this error if you are using one of the Borehole Manager query tools (View | Filter Boreholes or View | Select Boreholes), applying a Polygon Region query, AND your borehole names contain a "#" character (such as DH #1). The next public upload of the program will contain a fix for this. It has to do with the different characters that Access and SQL use to mark date fields, and we were filtering out the "#" characters which in turn mucks up the borehole names. In the meantime you'll need to perform the query with a rectilinear or circular region (which function differently), or remove the "#" characters from your borehole names. Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc.
  23. The RW16 installation program sets up file associations and file icons for: Rw2D, Rw3D, RwDat and RwRpt file extensions - so you can double-click on one of these file types in Windows Explorer, and Windows will know what program to use to open it. However it is possible for these settings to change even though the correct registry settings haven't been touched. To fix the file type - program associations is pretty straight forward: go to the Control Panel/Default Programs/Set Associations. Select the file extension and click change program. However this won't fix the file icons. For this you need to do some Registry Surgery. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts and find the File Extension key you want to fix (such as .Rw2D) and delete it. When you reboot your computer the correct file icon will be restored. The file associations allow you to select and open multiple files from Windows Explorer using only 1 instance of RockWorks16. Of course doing multiple RwDat files doesn't do much since there's only 1 viewer. (Thanks, Mitch, for the handy tips.) Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc.
  24. We've uploaded a new build of RockWorks16 to our website, with many new features, fixes, and improvements - here are a few: Level 4 and higher - New Projected Section program added to Lithology, Stratigraphy, P-Data, T-Data, I-Data, Aquifers, Fractures, and Colors menus - huge benefit for geotechnical projects with many boreholes and long section traces - New tools for modeling only selected stratigraphic units - huge benefit for deep project areas where you want to focus on specific strata - Improvements to all of the Profile menus for creating automatic parallel profiles as a single output diagram - Improvements to modeling stratigraphic data referenced to collar elevations rather than ground elevations Level 3 and higher - New Projected Section program added to Striplogs | 2-Dimensional menu - huge benefit for geotechnical projects with many boreholes and long section traces - New options for correlating logs either axis-to-axis or edge-to-edge both in section diagrams and in the Stratigraphy Picker - New options for handling downhole survey data with a variety of formats (vertical = -90 or 0 or +90) - New options for plotting inclined and deviated well paths in Borehole Locations -> Google Earth maps - New options for including Bitmaps table images (e.g. raster logs, core logs) as reference description data in Borehole Locations -> Google Earth maps - New Bitmap Types table enables multiple raster images to be stored for specific depth ranges - Improvements to all of the Striplogs | 2D | Profile menu for creating automatic parallel profiles as a single output diagram - Improved memory management for handling of larger P-Data, I-Data, and T-Data datasets - Improvements to the Excel and Text exports from the Borehole Manager - Improvements to the Grids -> Stratigraphic Logs program - Enhanced LAS imports - much faster - Fixed and enhanced the plotting of logs in Strip Logs, Sections, Projected Sections, Profiles and Fences when using Collar Elevations Level 2 and higher - Display background images in the section, profile, projected section, and fence selection windows - Support of both Strike (right-hand rule) and Dip Direction data in the Fracture Disks -> Solid, Planes | Strike & Dip Diagram, and Planes | Strike & Dip Map programs - New options for handling null values added to the Grid & Grid Math menu - Improvements to the solid model declustering logic Level 1 and higher - Disable automatic above-ground offset for objects output to Google Earth - handy for items which you want to plot at their actual elevations in relation to the ground (e.g. fault ribbons, etc.) - Improvements to the tree menus used throughout the program - easier controls For a complete list of the latest changes, please refer to our revisions list: http://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/rw16_current_revisions.htm To download the latest version of RockWorks16, please follow these steps: 1.

  25. We are excited to announce that the RockWare GIS Link 16 is now available! Install this toolbar into ArcMap and use its tools to: + Import your RockWorks borehole locations into ArcGIS + Pick striplog/cross section/profile/fence diagram locations in ArcMap for diagram display in RockWorks + Create structural or isopach contours for display in ArcMap The RockWare GIS Link 16 requires RockWorks 16 Level 3 (with limited functionality), Level 4, or Level 5. It also requires ArcGIS Desktop 10+. RockWare GIS Link 16 can be activated automatically with RockWorks 16 Level 5 licenses: If you already have RockWorks 16 Level 5 installed and running, just download and install the GIS Link demo, add the toolbar to ArcMap, and no further licensing is required. (For lower levels of RockWorks, the GIS Link licenses are purchased separately.)
