I have an existing geologic cross section, generated in AutoCad, which goes from well to well. I would try to use the Grafix/3D Utilities/Images/Panels/vertical to stick the image on the base map, but it wouldn't look right because I would need it to bend at each well. Wouldn't it be an easy change for the next Rockware upgrade to modify the 3D Perimeter option to also allow a JPG file instead of a just a color to fill the fence-like perimeter?

Hi Chris,

I think the only way to do this now would be to take the image and manually break it up into differnt panels for each section. There is no way now (as you've found) to take 1 large image and "fit" it into a section like this and bend at each well location. It is an interesting idea. I don't know if the perimeter option would be the best place to apply this. We would need to create a special panel that knew how to follow a profile line. I'll look into a little further...

Interesting. We could add a utility that would take a list of vertices and then split the original image into separate files on a vertice-by-vertice basis. This would be calculated by looking at the total length of the polyline and the total width of the original image and then subdividing accordingly. Finally, we'd run the Grafix / 3D-Utilities / Images / Panels / Vertical program (behind the scenes) to do what Chris wants. I'll add it to the wishlist for review. Given the limited appeal, I suspect that it will be way down on the priority list unless we can come up with some other applications. Jim Reed.

Just a follow up, I have completed the fake fence diagram using existing cross-sections. First I erased all the hatching because hatching just didnít present well when I used the transparency option. Then I saved each x-section as a Jpeg and opened up a free photo editing program, painted the rock formations, touched up a few spots, and then cropped them at each well to form jpeg panels. Each panel was set to the same top and bottom elevation so they would match up. Then, I entered the well coordinates on the datasheet. Then I floated the aerial photo beneath it. Now that I know how to do it, it is much faster. The actual jpeg is 2-meg, but I have attached a compressed version.
Thanks for your help!
Chris
