Hexagon Mining is part of Hexagon, a leading global provider of information technologies that drive quality and productivity improvements across geospatial and industrial enterprise applications, has presented 9.2 version of MineSight 3D is Hexagon Mining’s comprehensive modeling and mine planning software platform.
In this release added new functionality to vastly improve workflow and visualization. This includes faster digitizing in 2D while displaying a large amount of data; many new icons for functions within MS3D; the ability to switch easily between MineSight Reserve setups and visualizing drillhole data in 3D with Barrels; the ability to offset labels in drillhole views; and a new placement for object properties in a dock-able panel. This article shows you where to find these improvements and additions, plus how to use them.
- 2D digitizing speed improvement
In Version 9.2, MineSight improves the performance of digitizing in 2D when displaying a large amount of data. Digitizing in these views is quicker, which will benefit anyone who digitizes against drillholes or block models in 2D in their workflow.
- New icons
MS3D’s interface continues to improve, and now includes many new icons for functions. Now you can use these icons in customized toolbars, which will greatly improve your workflow.
- Recent Reserves
Now you can choose from recently used reserve logics from the Model menu. This allows for quick switching between your most commonly used reserve logics in MineSight Reserve from viewer or OCB, without the need to open the Reserves Setup function.
- Drillhole Views - Barrels
Version 9.2 offers two great additions to our drillhole view technology. The first is the ability to view your data as “barrels” in 3D. Barrels are a graphical representation of drillhole data in cylinder-like objects that can be colored, sized and textured with patterns to highlight grade, codes among other types of data. This greatly enhances the visualization of data for many applications, including geologic interpretation in 3D, MineSight Implicit Modeler, and underground design.
- Drillhole Views - Text offset
The second addition to our drillhole views is the ability to offset survey and interval labels. This allows you to customize the placement of your labels with respect to the drillhole trace. Below is an example where a negative offset puts your labels inside your strips in 2D.
- Properties panel
Object and material properties are now a dynamic, dock-able window. Simply open an object and click on it in the data manager to activate the new properties panel. If you close or have closed this window then a double click on the object brings the window back. Make any changes to the properties and the object will change immediately. No need to apply. This greatly helps your workflow because you don’t need to apply changes. Geometry object properties and material properties have been moved to this window. Future versions will work toward getting drillhole view and model view among others into this new panel.
In the properties panel you can now highlight any properties that were changed from the original material properties of the object. Do this by toggling on the “Show boxes indicating property overwrites material”. Any changes made to the original material properties will be highlighted by a blue box. Right click on any of the “groups,” such as Global, Nodes, Polylines to reset that group to the material properties, or all groups to material properties (this works like the Refresh button from the previous properties dialog).
Another great advantage to the properties panel is the ability to dock it alongside, float or tab into the position most suitable for your workspace, as shown in Figure 5.
The setup for node labels and line labels is also redesigned with an intuitive, yet space-saving way to represent the properties, as shown in Figure 6.
Figure 6 also shows that there are three tabs to the Properties panel after clicking on a geometry object in the data manager: Object, Information and Material. When you click on a material in the data manager, the panel will only show material and information.
