Creating Images of your Underground


Schedule in GEOVIA Minex
December 11, 2017
By Ryan Blackwell (http://blogs.3ds.com/geovia/author/ryanblackwell/)

In today’s tip I’ll be discussing how to easily create images or snapshots in time of an existing
underground schedule in GEOVIA Minex. This is a follow up from my previous post
(http://blogs.3ds.com/geovia/underground-schedule-playback-geovia-minex/) on how to replay an
existing underground schedule. GEOVIA Minex allows engineers to illustrate schedule scenarios and
provide a visualization of multiple schedule options to present to management for easy decision
making.

Before we start, please ensure that:

Your Underground Project (*.ugpr) is open


Your Geometry (*.GM3) files are open

In this example, we are using an existing schedule for a mine design that begins with a drift and utilizes
development, pillar, and longwall mining methods. In just a few steps we are able to playback the
existing schedule and capture snapshots of the mine schedule.

1. Access the Schedule Playback feature via the menu bar as shown below, or via the shortcut icon
that can be located on the toolbar.

PlaybackFeature.jpg)

2. On the Playback Settings tab, select the pit or mine area you would like to display. Once we select
the mining area, we can edit the period that we want to simulate by selecting Edit on the
Playback Settings tab. Minex also allows you to use a date control file (.ctl) which is useful when
you want to use time periods of unequal length in the schedule.
In this example below, we will run the schedule from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2016
using a playback period length of one (1) week increments.
Select Save to return to Schedule Playback form.

3. Next, move to the third tab labeled Graphics Capture. Tick the box next to Create an image for
each time step as shown below.

4. We can now select a predetermined image size and/or File Type. Select JPEG Image Format.

5. Finally, we can select the output directory where our image files will be saved. I’m storing the
image files in the current project’s file structure under Graphics_Files\Image_Files.

file.jpg)

6. Once we have selected the location to store the images, click OK and run the schedule. While the
schedule playback is running, Minex is capturing the graphics at every 1 week interval as
selected.  If we open the folder location in File Explorer, we can see each image being captured as
the schedule is playing.

7. Each image that is stored is assigned a specific name which includes the day/month/year of the
screen capture. We can easily jump to a period in time to analyze any possible bottlenecks. Now
that our schedule is complete, it can be easily analyzed and shared with management.

TIP: Use Microsoft’s free Windows Movie Maker (or any image-to-video software) to easily create a
video from the images to provide another alternative for presenting the schedule.

I hope you enjoyed this tip. Take a look at my previous post on Underground Schedule Playback
