RockWare Software: RockWorks

RockWorks Solid Models

Use RockWorks to interpolate continuous 3D “solid models” or “block models”  of simple XYZG points or sub-surface borehole data, for display in 3D or sliced as cross sections. RockWorks offers modeling of geochemical, geophysical, or geotechnical measurments; observed lithology materials; soil colors (e.g. Munsell); fractures; and vectors/voids.

Required feature levels:
Create a solid model from a list of XYZG points: Basic, Standard, Advanced.
Create a solid model from borehole data: Standard, Advanced

RockWorks Block Modeling and Display Options

  • Choose from a variety of 3D modeling algorithms
  • Apply data, distance, surface, and smoothing filters during modeling
  • Apply 2D (Standard level) and 3D (Advanced level) faulting
  • Display in 3D as color-coded voxels or as an isosurface
  • Apply a variety of color schemes, including user-created custom schemes
  • Interactively filter for specific value ranges and view corresponding volumes
  • Insert horizontal and vertical slices, and reposition them to view hot spots
  • Illustrate multiple concentration levels with “x-isosurfaces”
  • Insert cutouts to view the model interior
  • Include automatic or customized legends
  • Apply dozens of solid model manipulation tools and filters
  • Include logs, aerial photos, 3D surfaces, and many other 3D entities in your scenes

3D Contaminant Models

  • Create static models of contaminant plumes and display them in 3D as isosurfaces or as color-coded voxels.
  • Create transitional time-based models, display these “morphed” sequences, and create movie animations.

3D Lithology Block Models

  • Create solid models representing the distribution of your lithology material types.
  • Display all or selected materials as color-coded 3D voxels.
  • View volumes of each lithology type.

3D Color Solids

  • Display interpolated color data as 3D voxel models or 3D points.
  • Filter for specific color ranges, and view volumes

3D Vector-Based Models

  • Use RockWorks to convert downhole directional data into solid models that approximate the extents of the vectors.
  • An example application is the generation of void geometries (cave models) based on downhole laser surveys.
