The next two lessons are designed to show you how to create an Aquifer model and T-Data model for the
measurements from a different date (following the same steps you've already gone through), and then morph the
models into a "continuous" animation view.

Before continuing, be sure you have completed the earlier lesson - creating a T-Data isosurface.

1. Select the Aquifers | Model menu option to create the water surfaces for a new date.
Choose Aquifer(s)

Single Aquifer - Aquifer 1: Be sure this option is still selected.
Hide Thin Zones: Uncheck.
Plot Logs: Uncheck.
Reference Cage: Uncheck.

Rules & Filters: In the right-hand pane of the options window, change the Exact date filter to
11/18/2007 (or, if you're not in the U.S. your dates may appear as 18/11/07).

2. Click Process at the bottom of the Aquifer Modeling window.

The program will interpolate the water surface grids for this date and store them in the project folder. It will
display the surfaces in a RockPlot3D window.

3. Close the window; you do not need to save this view.

4. Back at the Borehole Manager, click on the T-Data menu and select the Model option.

5. Establish the modeling settings:
Create New Model: Click in this button, and expand this item.

T-Data Track: Be sure this is still set to the column titled Toluene.

Solid Model Name: Click here to assign a name for the interpolated model, and type in: toluene 11-

Page 99

This will be the name assigned to the solid model to be created, with an ".RwMod" file name extension.

Solid Modeling Options: Click on this button.
Algorithms, Dimensions: The defaults from the last model are fine, with one exception:

Superface: Be sure this is still checked, and click on this tab.
Manual: Be sure this is still selected.

Grid Model: Click here to browse for the file Aquifer
1_11_18_2007_top.RwGrd. (The number format in yours may be different.)
Buffer Size: Set this to 0.0.

Click OK to close the options window.

Create Solid Diagram: Check this, and expand this heading to access the diagram settings.
Diagram Type:

Iso-mesh: Uncheck.
Plot Logs: Check this.
Reference Cage: Check this.
Include Color Legend: Check this.

6. Click Process at the bottom of the T-Data Model window.

RockWorks will construct the new solid model for the new date, using the new constraining water surface. The
completed diagram will be displayed in a RockPlot3D tab.

7. Feel free to experiment with the isolevel filter, transparency, and viewing options for this scene.

8. When you are ready to continue, you can close the window. You do not need to save this view. (The solid
model - .RwMod file - has already been saved.)

Tutorial: Create a T-Data Morph

Estimated time: 4 minutes.

In this lesson you will create a "morphed" view of 3 intermediary models between the February and November Toluene
models created in earlier lessons. For this, you will use the Utilities portion of the program.

Before continuing, be sure you have completed these earlier lessons - creating a T-Data isosurface, and creating a
T-Data Model for another Date.

1. Access the RockWorks Utilities: Click on the Utilities tab, near the top of the main RockWorks program
window, to bring up the Utilities portion of the program.

2. Create a new datasheet:
Click on the File | New menu option.
Choose Blank from the pop-up window.

You'll see a new, blank datasheet with numbered column titles. All we need to do at this time is to list the

Page 196

diagram that reads Place Project Title Here. In the displayed window, type in the following text: Tutorial
Sample Data and click the Apply button. Click Close. The title will be updated as requested.

7. Save this updated layout using the File | Save command.

Tutorial: Add a Bitmap Image

Estimated time: 2 minutes.

In this lesson, you will add a BMP image to the drawing. This lesson assumes you have completed the previous lesson.

1. Click on the Tutorial Project layer name (upper-left) to make it active.

2. Click on the Raster (Bitmap) button or choose Tools | Raster (BMP, JPG, TIFF).

3. Draw a rectangular area to the right of the map by clicking and holding the mouse cursor in the upper-left corner
of the page and dragging down and to the right. Release the mouse button when you’ve got an area drawn like
the blue rectangle below:

The program will display a window where you’ll select the raster image file name and set scaling.

4. Raster Tab:
a. Picture: Click the small open-file button at the upper prompt to browse for the sample file: 1955

Airphoto.png, and double-click on that file name. This file should reside in the My
Documents\RockWorks16 Data\Samples folder.

b. Link: Click on the Link radio button
c. Best Fit: Choose this option so that ReportWorks will keep the horizontal to vertical aspect ratio at

1:1 as you size the bitmap.
d. Layer: This should default to the Tutorial Project layer.

5. Outline Tab: Click on this tab, displayed behind the Raster tab.

Page 197

a. Style: Choose None by clicking the down-arrow button.

6. Click the Apply button at the bottom of the window, and you’ll now see the image displayed on the page.

7. Click the Close button to close the dialog box.

8. Adjust the image’s position on the layout sheet by clicking and dragging it. Remember that you can use the
Layers to make different items active/inactive. Within the active layer, you can also use the right-click | Send to
Back or Bring to Front options to adjust the stacking order.

9. Choose File | Save to save the layout thus far.
