RockWorks 2020.6.30


Recommended Posts

A new version of RockWorks2020 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with loads of new features, improvements, and bug fixes.


New Features and Improvements

  • The user can draw a rectangle in RockPlot2D, and the select it with a right click to update the project dimensions. (Rectangle Attributes, Location tab, Set Output Dimensions button)
  • A Null replacement value has been added an option to the Grid Model --> Boolean and Solid Model --> Boolean programs.
  • Users can now move the anchor point of Anchor Text in RockPlot2D.
  • Users can load dimensions from an existing subsite (Subsite_Cmd). A quick way to add this command to the Playlist is from the Subsite Dialog (last item in the Subsite drop down list - "Edit Subsites"). From that dialog there is a "RCL" menu item , which has options to "Add to Playlist" and "Export to a RwCmd file".
  • The RockPlot2D Manual Pattern Scaling can now be applied to all diagrams. Map, Section and Profiles are based on the Project Dimensions. Charts use the diagram dimensions.
  • The Float Images in Google Earth now force a rotation so that the images are in the view.
  • Added a vertical scroll bar to the Vertical and Horzontal Axis options for Profiles, Sections and Projected Sections so that all options can be seen and adjusted.
  • Borehole Manager | Import Raster Logs, you can now select multiple files for import. The import is more forgiving when the tiff file is no longer in the original folder.
  • A vertical divider bar (to be moved left/right) has been added to the 2D Log Design window, so that the visible items pane can be expanded.
  • Added scroll bars to the Georeference dialog.
  • LoadDimensions_Cmd and SaveDimensions_Cmd will work from Playlists and scripts. Example:
    PROJECT DIM_FILE Default_Project_Dimensions.rwDim


Bug Fixes

  • Stratigraphy and Lithology Fence diagrams now honor the position setting for Legends.
  • All of the PLSS data input fields in the Borehole Manager trigger saving to the database when edited.
  • Default filename extension for input solids changed to RwMod, was RwGrd.
  • The "Create New Solid Model" option now uses the user specified name.
  • Playlist Load and Save Datasheet behave more as expected.
  • The Inclined Surface option for Solid and Grid(s) Filter is now created correctly.
  • ModOps - Grid | Filters | Polygon Clip was freeing the polystream twice causing a Invalid Pointer.
  • Grid filter tools were missing the color legend option
  • When inserting a new borehole, the "Other Coordinate Projections" data is now posted with the rest of the entered borehole data.
  • The project dimensions could get the number of nodes set to zero and saved when the values were edited such that the Minimum exceeded the Maximum. The check on the values is now being done before saving.
  • When scanning boreholes from the Subsite dialog, the Subsite dialog is now being updated, not the Dimensions tab in RockWorks. Also the Dimensions tab is updated when Scan Boreholes is called from the Search Dialog.
  • Hydrology and Borehole Operations - Aquifers: Hydrograph tools (Hydrograph, Hydrograph map and Hydrograph billbords) work.
  • Graphics - Images | Geo-reference - 3D Display default was changed to Float instead of Drape.
  • Graphics - 2D Tools | Export | ReportWorks: will now prompt to save on close.
  • The Solid and Grid(s) Filter now uses the correct surface type instead of defaulting to grid surfaces.
  • The Solid and Grid(s) Filter no longer causes an Access Violation when grid surfaces are selected.
  • Google Earth programs that output disks, tubes, centered images and text were not calculating sizes correctly.
  • Re-projecting just the Z values now works.
  • RockPlot2D previews are now saved when the Rw2D files are saved whether the diagram is displayed or not.
  • Fixed vertical divider bar in the Application Search dialog.
  • A RW15 input grid model is converted only once when both a 2D map and 3D diagram output are requested via the Grid | Display program.
