New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes:



  • Voxel Models (e.g. lithology) now use logic to decide which faces need to be drawn in RockPlot3D which improves drawing speed significantly.
  • Removed the option to disable Double Buffering for RockPlot3D as it offered no benefits.
  • Color Tables in a RockPlot2D and RockPlot3D Legends now  display in the same order.
  • Added an option to RockPlot3D Color Legends to reverse the order from descending to ascending.
  • The Descending option in RockPlot2D Color Legends now also reverses the order for color tables.


Bug Fixes

  • The Stratigraphy Section and Profile programs no longer use the modeling clipping polygon.
  • The Solid to Zone program was ignoring the input and output column settings.
  • The RockPlot 2D Map conversion was initializing the converter with the output value so no conversion was being done. The processing of the points is also faster, as it processes more points at a time.
  • Fixed an obscure problem with color legends in RockPlot3D: if the legend used a Min-Mid-Max color scheme in a manner that resulted in an odd number of intervals, the labels would plot in the wrong position


To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks17. Or visit our website and click on the RockWorks Free Trial tab:
