Error Message- Cannot create file ""....

Recommended Posts

I keep getting the attached error message when I try to create 3D lithology models and cross sections.

All my projects are generally set up the same and I have never seen this message before.

I browsed through my project to see if find could find any characters that would cause this issue but I didn't see anything suspicious.

I may just need an experienced set of eyes to glance at my project.

I sent my project to [email protected] already.

Hi Raechel,

The error is caused by the Lithology Model Option to filter with a Superface grid that is automatically generated from the Elevation values on the Location table for each borehole. All the borehole elevations are identical, so no grid is created.

In the bug report below, read up from the bottom to see the sequence of the Lithology model being created, and the limiting grid resulting in a flat surface. Flat grid files are typically not saved in RockWorks because you can't draw contours on a flat surface. I will forward your report to programming so RockWorks can handle this situation better in the future.

To resolve the problem, turn off the option under Lithology | Model | Create New Model | Modeling Options | Superface. Remove the checkmark from the Superface option.
