US: Hexagon Mining today introduced its mine planning software, MineSight. The software will improve the software functionality and enhance performance in a bundled update. Implicit Modeler and MineSight 3D boast several new features designed to make life easier for geologists.
MS3D Version 11.0 now sees full drillhole view and model view support in the xViewer, which simplifies work with complex models and data. Millions of blocks can be displayed and managed, giving you the flexibility to use large data quickly. The xViewer continues to push the boundaries of graphics systems, delivering the best performance possible.
Version 11 also sees a redesign of the the Drillhole Design Tool. Now you can store planned drillholes directly back to Torque, and start designs from both the collar and target locations. This saves time in the design process and allows you to exploit the integration of Torque and MS3D.
Workflows are also improved. Project settings can now be set automatically from a geometry object, and viewer properties are available on a new dockable panel.
Version 1.7 of Implicit Modeler now includes the option to force a surface to snap directly to drillhole intercepts or geometry points, thus perfectly matching the input data. With a matching report to view the snapped distances, you can feel more confident than ever in Implicit Modeler’s ability to fit the input data. You can also use Torque 3D Points directly, meaning these 3D sample points can be used to create gradeshells or other types of surfaces.
