About this Release
The Target for ArcGIS 4.0.1 update is available to all maintained customers. This release includes a new orthographic view in the 3D viewer, automatically generated colours for rock code patterns, and the ability to draw vectors down drillholes. It also includes a number of minor enhancements and issue fixes.
How to update
Online installs for each product are available through the Check for updates option within the software and from the download link at the top of this page.
Target for ArcGIS 4.0.1 is compatible with ArcGIS versions 9.3.1 SP2, 10.0 SP5, and 10.1 SP1. ArcGIS 10 or newer is required to use the Target for ArcGIS wireframing workflow.
Windows 7 SP1 (32-bit and 64-bit) is recommended. Windows 8 (requires ArcGIS 10.1 SP1 or newer), Windows Vista 32/64 (SP2), and Windows XP (SP3) are also supported.
See detailed System Requirements.
Default colour fill pattern for rock code file
Now when you import lithology data, default colours are automatically assigned. This enables you to visualize the results right away and makes it easy to generate colours and patterns and build a rock code file.
Draw vectors along a 3D drillhole paths
Orthographic 3D view added to the 3D viewer
In the 3D viewer you can now view your models in an Orthographic 3D view. When the human eye looks at a scene, objects in the distance appear smaller than objects close by. Orthographic projection ignores this effect and allows you to create drawings that are to scale.
You can toggle between between Perspective and Orthographic views by clicking the new icons on the toolbar. The options are also available under Tools & Settings > Rendering Settings.
