LEAPFROG WORKS 2.3

Leapfrog Works 2.3 is available for download now! This latest version of Works offers even greater interoperability with commonly used BIM and CAD programs, exciting usability enhancements and new analysis tools. Our data and model management solution, Central, also has some key new features which make project management easier than ever before.

ADDITIONAL INTEROPERABILITY

  • IMPORT AUTODESK CIVIL3D DESIGNS

    • Civil3D drawing files (*.dwg) can now be imported directly into Leapfrog Works.
    • Import your Civil3D alignments, catchments, corridors, pipe networks, surfaces and structures.

    EXPORT 2D CROSS-SECTIONS FOR GEOTECHNICAL ANALYSIS

    • Translate geological cross sections into 2D drawing space required by geotechnical analysis software such as Rocscience’s RS2.
    • Easily pull sections directly from your 3D geological model, then analyse and solve for slope stability, settlement or other physics problems in 2D space. Then display the analysis results back in the context of the 3D model.

    DISPLAY CHAINAGE ON LONG SECTION LAYOUTS

    • The X axis start value can now be specified allowing users to effectively display chainage on long section layouts.

USABILITY ENHANCEMENTS

  • ONLINE VIDEOS MAKE YOU THE EXPERT

    • Everything you need to become proficient at Leapfrog modelling is now available in a set of bite sized clips directly in the software.
    • Master 3D subsurface modelling quickly with easy to discover online learning videos.

    BETTER GRAPHICS, EDITING AND ANALYSIS

    • Enjoy sharp clear 3D graphical display with high resolution and 4K monitors and laptops.
    • Polyline editing improvements make it easier to apply geological interpretation in the model.
    • New polar stereonets with equal area (Schmidt) or equal angle (Wulff) projections to analyse geotechnical trends.
    • Geo-statistics available on all sets of points for robust data understanding.

    SIMPLER SHARING AND COLLABORATION

    • Direct scene export makes it easy to share your 3D scenes.
    • Label the bottom of your borehole traces for clear communication in 3D scene presentations.
    • New View upload manager makes it simple to queue and manage multiple uploads at the same time, so sharing your 3D views online has never been easier.
    • Provide online feedback on View's 3D slides from your web-browser to collaborate more effectively where ever you are online.

POWERFUL MODEL MANAGEMENT

  • BETTER PERFORMANCE WITH CENTRAL UPLOADS

    • Now when you publish projects to Central from Leapfrog Works only the most recent changes are published, rather than the entire project – avoiding duplication and dramatically reducing upload times.
    • Decreased storage requirements make the most efficient use of your server storage allocation.

    ALL NEW CENTRAL PORTAL WITH CENTRAL DATA ROOM

    • Users and administrators can now see and manage all your Central projects from a web browser on any device.
    • The brand new Data Room in your Central projects enables you to upload, version and download data files from any source via the portal.
    • Apply Central’s single source of truth philosophy of best practise for management of all your geoscience or geospatial data files that aren’t already managed in other systems.

    MORE LEAPFROG WORKS INTEGRATIONS

    • Publish downhole and x,y,z structural data to Central direct from Works.
    • Load meshes from Central file store directly into your local Leapfrog Works project.

FEATURES RELEASED IN LEAPFROG WORKS 2.2

NEW INTEROPERABILITY

  • USER DEFINED ATTRIBUTES ON MODELS

    • Add user defined attributes to models to capture and communicate key domain details.
    • Spell out components of ground type classifications or weathering profiles in a single domain. At a glance understand the properties of the geological, geotechnical or hydrogeological unit viewed.
    • Include user defined attributes in exports to IFC and communicate subsurface properties on projects using BIM workflows.

    EXPORT IFC BOREHOLES & DGN MODELS

    • Publish boreholes from Works projects direct to IFC format for transparent sharing of critical ground investigation data points with other disciplines and BIM project collaborators.
    • Export models direct to Bentley’s design (DGN) format for use in Microstation and wider application across the Bentley project suite.

    EXTRACT VOLUME SURFACES

    • Easily extract the top or bottom surfaces of a given volume, or any unique contact surfaces that make up a volume with new single-action surface extraction tools. Avoid the hassle and clutter of extensive mesh clipping and easily export to design, layout or geotechnical software.

ENHANCED 3D VISUALISATION

  • SPLIT SCENE VIEWS

    • Visualise 3D data from 1, 2 or even 3 viewpoints, to provide context and clarity, especially useful when exploring in close up and controlling object visibility, scene slicing, zoom level and image rendering.
    • Add a second monitor, double your desktop and easily compare views for increased productivity and even richer engagement.

    COLOURMAP IMPROVEMENTS

    • New colour gradient options replace the existing colour maps for better display of heatmaps, elevation, azimuth and geophysics data as well as diverging data and grayscales. Existing colour maps may still be used if preferred.
    • Discrete Colourmaps can now be easily created using various statistical methods for use with numerical interpolants.

    DOWNHOLE GRAPHS IN 3D SCENE

    • CPT, Geophysics or other downhole numeric data can now be displayed in the 3D scene to quickly visualise downhole data in 3D as a trace line or bar graph.
    • Use it along with movie making or saved scenes to communicate understanding of the different downhole parameters influencing the model and driving decisions.

IMPROVED CROSS SECTIONS

    • Using the new line symbology tool in section layout, clearly document and convey the confidence level of modelled contacts, or where the water table is.
    • As cross sections are dynamically linked, save time and effort refining layouts and maintaining cross sections over the project lifecycle.

CENTRAL 2.1 MODEL MANAGEMENT

  • Leapfrog Works 2.2 is now compatible with Central 2.1 for continuous model management, review and collaboration. Improvements include:

    • New roles and flexible project-based permissions - reflect the varied levels of access parties have when collaborating on Central managed models.
    • Even easier project sharing - the project owner can now select the project in the history tree and share directly from within Leapfrog Works.
    • Fence and Serial Sections, polyline colours and 2D grids - can now be published to Central and viewed in the Central Browser by project stakeholders.
    • Users can now specify the folder for temporary Central data storage, avoiding limited C drive capacity issues.
