RockWorks 2021.6.2

Recommended Posts

A new version of RockWorks2021 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with new features, improvements, and bug fixes. 


The RockWorks Revision History has a complete list, by date, of all changes in the program.


New Features:

  • The grid and solid math menus now include options for computing the log base 10 and natural logarithms of the node values. This is a useful tool for identifying spatial relationships for data in which the majority of the values are much lower than the highest value.
  • Layers in RockPlot2D window can now be locked from selecting to make it easier to edit dense diagrams.
  • A new program called "Copy Files" has been added to the Utilities / Misc sub-menu.  This program is used to copy a list of files (within the RockWorks Datasheet) to a designated folder.  The intent is to provide a means to copy selected files to another folder, computer, server, or FTP site.
  • The Grid and Solid Range Filters now allow null values to be filtered and replaced.
  • When an error is encountered while processing a Playlist, the error message dialog now provides a new option to cancel the process rather than continuing with the Playlist processing or closing/restarting the program.
  • The Enable and Disable buttons within the Playlist now have small black arrows along the right side of the button that will display additional options for enabling/disabling all of the options above or below the currently highlighted item within the Playlist.  These new options are also available within the View option at the top of the Playlist as well as the popup menu that appears if the user right-clicks within the list.



  • The Multiple RockPlot2D to PDF Export options now includes Pattern Scaling options. 
  • Added a command to the Playlist to reset the project settings to their default values. 
  • Added Map Options to the RockPlot2D Shape File Import, so that Borders, Labeled Axes, etc. can be specified directly in the Shape file import. 
  • Improved the RockPlot3D export of text in Wavefront Obj files for Sketchfab. Additionally, added a text scalar option.
  • The Geobody Filter program is now several orders of magnitude faster than the previous version. Seconds versus hours faster. "Geobodies" represent clusters of connected voxels that fall within a user-specified g-value range. A typical application involves the identification of "hydraulic communication" based on filtered hydraulic conductivity data.
  • RockWorks will use the materials table to define drawing order for Well Construction striplogs.


Bug Fixes

  • The Polygon List / Grid program no longer offers a Point Map Overlay which could cause error messages.
  • 2D Faults when intersected with a grid are no longer terminated by null values or the border of the grid.
  • The processing of a Playlist is now terminated if the Cancel button has been clicked. The actual termination will not occur until after the active item is finished processing. The "active" item is defined as the item that was being processed when the Cancel button was clicked. In addition, the user will now be asked to confirm the cancellation if the Cancel button is clicked.
  • Polygon Clipping is no longer applied to automatically generated grids for Subface and Superface Clipping surfaces since it caused Polygon Clipping to fail.
  • Profiles that cross a fault more than once now show all fault intersections.
  • Grid | Import | Bitmap (Raster Image) - will now honor the Input Coordinate settings and properly crop the image down to the Project Dimensions.
  • Utilities - Statistics | Histograms, honors minimum/maximum filters for both the statistics and the histogram.
  • The algorithm that determines if a point is inside or outside a polygon no longer sporadically and incorrectly identifies points (e.g., grid cells, solid voxels) as being inside or outside the polygon.
