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.
