Reserves and the Selection file - Maptek Vulcan BUG






The selection file is a great way in Vulcan to reference multiple triangulations.  You can load triangulations by the selection file and you can also reference them in the Advanced Reserves Editor.  Recently I ran into a couple issues while running reserves in version 8.1.2.


1)      The selection file won’t work with Block > Advanced Reserves > Advanced Reserves Editor if it is in UNIX format.  This restriction doesn’t seem to be a problem when loading the triangulations into Envisage using: Model > Triangle Utility > List.  I think I changed my default format to UNIX because another option in Vulcan didn’t like plain ASCII but I can’t remember what that option was at the moment.

2)      The selection file won’t work with Block > Advanced Reserves > Advanced Reserves Editor if it uses the entire file path to the triangulations, only relative path will work.  Again, this works fine when loading triangulations into Envisage.  I think that the Advanced Reserves Editor should be more robust.

I have made Maptek aware of the issues and will post the JIRA number once I receive it.  I hope that this post will save someone else the hassle of troubleshooting something that should be more robust in your $50,000 software.
