Hexagon releases improved mine planning software

Hexagon Mining has introduced new functionality and enhanced performance in a bundled update of its mine planning software: MineSight.

Implicit Modeler and MineSight 3D have 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 the user 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, the user 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 the user 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, the user can feel more confident than ever in Implicit Modeler’s ability to fit the input data. The Torque 3D Points can also be used directly, meaning these 3D sample points can be used to create gradeshells or other types of surfaces.
