  1. Ability to export profile data that exists in holes1.
  2. Ability to use a polygon to filter triangulation results based on view direction2.


    1. It is now possible to export hole profile data if it exists. To access, go to File > Export > Profile Logs... The option is disabled if there is no profile data against any hole.
    2. In the Surface Manager, if a polygon is also selected, this can be used to filter output triangulation results. The filter logic can either be in plan (top down), or in the current view direction to filter.


  1. It is now possible to discard hole profile logs when multiple holes are selected.
  2. The "Use Actual Holes Loading For Calculation" checkbox has been disabled when submitting AVM jobs1.
  3. Increased the "Screening parameter" to accept 2 decimal places in the MSW calculation dialog.
  4. References to BlastIQ™ Classic or BlastIQ™ Quarry have been removed.
  5. The "Quantities by Hole Type" quantities report has been improved:
    1. "Boosters" and "Initiating Systems" categories have been added.
    2. "Stemming" product summary now reports the number of holes and a volume in m3.
  6. The Surface Manager tool has been improved:
    1. An information tool tip has been added to explain the "Use as Boundary" option.
    2. An information tool tip has been added to explain when to use "Best Fit". 
    3. "Use as Boundary" has been disabled if "Best Fit" triangulation is used2.
    4. When a polygon has been selected, it can be used to filter points for triangulation in the users current view.
  7. The "Edit Raw Data" button has been re-enabled in the face station.


    1. This checkbox was added before functionality to use actuals for AVM job submissions was fully implemented. 
    2. "Best Fit" triangulation method should not be used with a polygon selected for "Use as Boundary", this could have led to undesirable results.
    3. In the Surface Manager, users can create a surface with selected objects. If a polygon is also selected, this can be used to filter the input data used in the triangulation. The filter logic can either be in plan (top down), or in the current view direction to filter.


  1. Sometimes the selection lasso can appear far from the extent of the data on screen. This has been fixed.
  2. The "Expand Polygon" tool can sometimes cause overlapping points in the result. Where logical, this has been improved.
  3. When importing design holes via the text importer, a message prompt alerts the user if incomplete design information is available. This message was appearing even if appropriate fields are mapped for import, this has been fixed.
  4. When using surface and downhole combo detonators, the tie legend display was not printing correctly in the plan print out. 
  5. When attempting to upload plans to BlastIQ™, if an i-kon™ resource exists in the upload that had a mismatched product region, an error would occur. This has been fixed. 
  6.  After importing hole positions from BlastIQ™, toe points for some situations did not match.
  7. Borders were not being printed when attempting to print a report on all rows in the "Row View".
  8. The "Butt Check" tool was misidentifying holes even when outside search radius.
  9. Hole Labels were not showing on opaque rendered surfaces.
