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


  • Pasting items into the Pattern Editor that would be offset outside the Design Window now pushes them to the bottom.
  • A Clear All button has been added to the Pattern Editor.
  • If a solid model consists of only null values, an error message will now be displayed and the process will be terminated.  The previous version would just hang and the user was left wondering if they should keep waiting.
  • The Transfer functions from the Utilities datasheet (Locations and Stratigraphy), will now use their own query/data to update the Borehole Manager's data.  This ensures all of the data is transferred.


Bug Fixes

  • The Line Width option in the Pattern Editor is now working.
  • The Solid Model Reveal Animation now displays the correct inner faces.
  • The Super and Sub Face Filters  Replacement values for Solid Modeling now take precedence over the Distance Filter.
  • The dip angle spinner button within the Solid Modeling Options | Tilting menu now ranges between -90 and +90.  The previous version would only allow for values between zero and +90.
  • The Scan of the Datasheet for dimensions will not convert the coordinates if coordinate systems are the same. (The scanner converted the coordinates to Lon/Lat and back even when the systems were the same.)
  • The multiple point coordinate converter for the Utilities Datasheet now converts to/from Local Coordinates.  Due to an oversight implementing Proj.4 conversions Local Coordinates were treated as degrees of Long/Lat.  Other places coordinates were converted continue to work.
  • Voxel Models that are hidden no longer draw during rotation.
  • In RockPlot3D Line Widths can never be set beyond the minimum or maximum values which can cause errors.
  • The menus for exporting vertical and horizontal charts from Rockplot2D to Google Earth are no longer disabled.

The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of these changes since the last update.
