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.
Set colour, size and symbols in the scatter plot tool
In the scatter plot tool, you can now define the colour, the size and the symbol independently. This feature was previously only available in the Geosoft extensions for ArcGIS, this update makes the scatter plot tool options the same in all Geosoft software applications and extensions.
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.
