System-generated .RwGrd files

Recommended Posts

I am looking through all my grid files in rockworks and noticed that for each stratigraphic surface there are 3 .RwGrd files. I know what the _top and _base files are, but I'm curious what the other .RwGrd file is for each surface? The dates for this grid file is different than the dates for the top and base grids. What process created these grid files?

Hi Josh,

The function of the other RwGrd files may be related to the name of the file.

  • Stratigraphy files ending in _clipped.RwGrd are generated when you create a Stratigraphy model, specify to display a 3D diagram, and choose to Hide Thin Zones. The areas where the formation is thinner than the specified thin zone cutoff value are clipped and set to the NULL value (-1e27).

  • Stratigraphy files ending in _offset.RwGrd are generated when you create a 3D diagram and choose the Explode option. This option adds a vertical offset between the formations.
